Gayle Cloud

Gayle Cloud is an award-winning singer/songwriter based in Seattle.

Working with a mélange of genres and international influences, Gayle's lush melodies, sensual "world" rhythms and rich vocals create a fresh sound with an emotional appeal. Given the emotive quality of her work, Gayle’s songs are ideally suited for film and television projects. As a prolific songwriter, she continues to introduce new and compelling music at her live shows.

Gayle debuted as a performing artist in Paris where she attracted a devoted audience over the five years she lived in Europe. She then moved to New York City for several years where she played with some of city's finest musicians. Even though Gayle returned to her beautiful hometown of Seattle a few years ago, she continues to be bi-coastal, producing and performing on both coasts.

Gayle has just released, “Many Waters,” her second self-published CD of original work. Produced and arranged by the multi-talented John Pahmer in NYC, this is Gayle and John's second collaborative CD project.

With vocals and some piano by Gayle, John played a myriad of instruments on the CD. Other featured NY musicians include Paul Livant, electric and acoustic guitar; Joe Bonadio, drums; Matt Fieldes, bass; Lucy Morganstern, violin, and Benny Landa, electric guitar.

A musician since age nine, Gayle has played a host of instruments throughout her life, including the piano, guitar, flute and percussion. The keyboard is now her instrument of choice when composing and performing.

Born in Chicago, Gayle spent most of her adult life in Seattle before moving to Europe.
