Born and raised in Philadelphia, Gail’s fascination for the piano began at the young age of 10. By 14, Gail had played her first professional gig. After she had graduated from the Berklee College of Music, with a B.A. in Composition, Gail made the move west, to Los Angeles and established herself in the vibrant heart of the music industry. Her resume as a recording artist and touring musician includes appearances with such notables as Mindi Abair, Bobby Womack, Ray Parker jr, Pink and Milli Vanilli. She has also appeared on TV and performed on Jazz Festivals with Cindy Bradley, Jeff Lorber, Patti Austin, Marion Meadows and many others. Beyond that, she has been music director for Norman Brown for many years. In 2010 and 2011 The American Black Music Association awarded Gail a Spotlight Award as “Best Jazz Musician.” Gail leads the all female ensemble “Jazz in P!nk”, featuring artists as Karen Briggs, Althea Rene and Mariea Antoinette, but she also has her own band “3 Piece Suit”. Her music is built on a foundation of straight-ahead jazz, R&B, Funk and Gospel.
