Gil's standard of excellence was set from the beginning. Watching and listening to such masters as Chuck Berry, BB King, James Brown, Dizzy Gillespie and Ray Charles, Gil became enthralled with the world of music. Right out of high school he began performing in the clubs of his hometown, Los Angeles, CA. The Blues is where it started for Gil but over the years he’s written and performed everything from Jazz and Rock, to Funk, Reggae, and even Country. It was the experience of performing these different genres of music and the lifestyles associated with them, that has shaped him into the artist he is today. Gil Gann brings you a little bit of everything… but mostly a lot of Heart, Soul, and Musical Passion!
In addition to his professional endeavors Gil also performs an educational production “We Are The Blues” for children. Using a fifty minute live musical performance as a platform he seeks to foster an appreciation of America’s true art form “The Blues”. Students learn of it’s origins, various styles and diverse cultural influences. As a finale students participate in a Call and Response rendition of a traditional Blues song. This is a rewarding educational and cultural experience. Students come away with a greater understanding of the factors responsible for the music they love.

I found you on my search of songs of the movie "a boy called hate". When I was young it was my favorite movie. I loved the music in it, and so I searched for songs. I saw, that two songs in the movie are from you. One of it is "Alone" and one is "A Fool And His Honey". I did not found them anywhere, just your page. Would be so awesome, if you could send them to me anyhow.
