Around 1985...Still have that guitar and hair but the hair is a LOT lighter!
Here is where you can find info on performances, venues, cover music and Gil's original songs...
Welcome to Frontman's web site!
Songs and stuff...
In case you you haven't figured it out by now, I'm a singer / songwriter, guitarist and Frontman. I've been performing, either solo or in bands, for over 30 years. I have a small project studio with a partner, Jim Brown. He has the thankless task of taking the half-formed ideas that I can hear in my head, and helping me make them come alive. Plus running sound for my band, Bad Habit!
|I have many other
influences of course, but I think I have my own sound.... I
write blues-tinged Rock 'n Roll, "sensitive" ballads, and some
contemporary country tunes. Jim and I are working on our first
all-original CD, but it's a slow process. I hope to get it
finished before Alzheimer's set in!
Solo Cover tunes...
When I do a solo show, I play a really wide variety of what I call Classic Acoustic Rock. Artists like The Eagles, Jimmy Buffet, Tom Petty, Cat Stevens, John Mellencamp, Van Morrison, etc. But I also like to mix in more obscure tunes by people like Tom Waits, Steve Earle, John Hiatt, and any song I find interesting or cool, that I think an audience will also enjoy. It may be an old Elton John song, or a radio staple that you just don't expect a solo artist to cover. I use a Hybrid Acoustic / Electric guitar, so some tunes I do in electric mode, like maybe Bob Seger, or Bad Company. I also use a harmonizer to add more vocals...it's kinda fun to watch an audience look all surprised when they hear one guy sound like The Eagles!
