Ariana Gillis


Ariana Gillis has been touring extensively, sharing the stage with the likes of Josh Ritter, Ron Sexsmith, John Hiatt, Shawn Colvin, performing on the NPR nationally syndicated show, Etown, playing at several prominent festivals in the USA and Canada. Ariana has captured the attention of several industry luminaries including; Bernie Taupin, Bob Ezrin, Steve Wozniak and music critic Dave Marsh, each one going on record, citing her as among their favorite artists ever!  She has recently signed a management deal with Six Shooter Records and continues to win fans by word of mouth and show to show.

Chosen as Young Performer of the Year at the 2009 Canadian Folk Music Awards, she is fulfilling the promise many people have seen since she put out her first EP when she was 17.

"When you compose songs as great as some of your heroes Bob Dylan and Patty Griffin, you enter into rarified air. Canadian singer/songwriter Ariana Gillis has rocketed herself into that stratosphere. Having been released for almost a year now, Forget Me Not soars with provocative imagination and brutal honesty. Magic songs of monsters and humanity, saving dolphins, and a brilliant track about a sailor who walks the plank to his death and ultimate freedom. Her stunning voice warm and robust, conveys stories rippling with animated sincerity. You might just find yourself humming or singing along with every tune. They posses a certain pop intelligence without falling into the pop category. It's refreshing to hear such a grounded young artist orbit into greatness."
