In November 2015, critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Ariana
Gillis, whose “voice conveys stories rippling with animated sincerity”
sustained a severe concussion that jeopardized the future of her
blossoming career. The traumatic head injury hospitalized Ariana three
times, leaving her unable to write, sing or perform. She describes the
injury saying, “there was a point where I couldn’t even make a coffee,
it was so frightening that I wondered if I would ever be able to play
Grateful that she’s fully recovered, Ariana is on course to releasing a new batch of songs that are wholly original, staying true to her unique style. She is living up to what critics have been predicting all along. She teams with Joel Moss, a 7-time Grammy award-winner who has produced records for the likes of Tony Bennett and Harry Connick Jr. Together they are heading full-on into the studio to create her third album, “Head Full of Stars”, concussion metaphor intended.

Dave Marsh, former editor of Rolling Stone Magazine, says: “I’ve never seen an unknown performer with more power as when I saw Ariana performing at a music convention – I couldn’t stop talking about her. The last performer I felt this way about was BruceSpringsteen”.
Bernie Taupin, Elton John’s co-writer, has this to say: “I’m staggered by how good she is. There is not much that impresses me these days but after hearing her available tracks I can honestly say she’s the single most exciting thing I’ve heard in a very long time”.
