After years of university, Gillian found herself with an MA in philosophy, and a yearning to write songs, sing jazz and play the accordion. Over the last while she has opened for the likes of Michel Donato, Elizabeth Shepherd, Delhi 2 Dublin and Geoff Berner, she’s joined Mary Margaret O’Hara, Eliana Cuevas and the Metro Jazz Ensemble on the stage, she performs regularly at Saskatoon’s Jazz Bassment, the Saskatchewan Jazz Festival, and the Ness Creek Music Festival, while continuing to perform throughout the year in Saskatchewan and Alberta. The accordion and song writing has opened up an odd and adventurous world which has taken Gillian across the country and back with the Great Train Reverie, the Ray Elliott Band and, of course, Gillian’s own project The Whiskey Jerks. Aside from happily performing, recording and touring with musicians she loves, Gillian can also be found on the airwaves every Monday morning at 8am on CFCR 90.5 FM.
