(Gil-e) @ Benefit Jam for Cam
With hypnotic and often interweaving melodies, (Gil-e) brings into mind a somewhat mathematical predictability sewn around various aspects of genres and vibes he blends together while still holding a firm stance within Alt-Pop & Americana.
Born Bryant Gilley, he has a passion for music that started at age 5 after touching the keys of a player piano. Years went by and he found himself inexorably drawn to the craft of music and the science of sound.
In April 2009 he recorded his first demo in New Orleans at Fudge Recording Studios with producer Jack Miele, of the famous 80s cover band The Molly Ringwalds. He then quickly started performing around the southeastern United States under a solo acoustic act and with his group Shifting Tracks at various bars, restaurants, and venues focusing mainly around his hometown of Mobile, Alabama.
Notable performances during this time include; Midtown Music Festival (2011), Bay Fest (2013), South Sounds Music Festival (2015), and WZEW's "Radio Avalon."
Several albums under Shifting Tracks were released during these years and the discography can be found here. That group was eventually put on hiatus.
Numerous musicians have come and gone through his projects and as before he would find himself alone continuing along the path; still writing and making music.
2019 would bring significant change as Bryant decided to break from being a bar/restaurant entertainer as a new approach was needed to grow. He would then begin to focus more on writing and producing his and others' content while readjusting the approach to get back out and start performing again.
In October of 2022, he would re-launch his brand from using his name to now using the moniker (Gil-e). This would also bring about a new single. "Sun is Gonna Rise" available now on all streaming platforms.
Show dates are now being worked on and will be announced when available.
