Gail Pettis, “… a retro air that hints at the silken sophistication and storytelling elan of the young Nancy Wilson…” ~ Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes MAGAZINE

Named 2010 Northwest Vocalist of the Year, by Earshot Jazz Society, (also 2007), Gail’s rich, warm vocals and understated phrasing have been described as “deliciously soulful” by Cadence Magazine.

Bringing world-class artists to the island in a celebration of piano music—classical to contemporary.
