Gileah has been gracing stages throughout northwest Florida since she was very young, performing original compositions and accompanying herself on guitar and piano. She has been compared with Innocence Mission and Over the Rhine, but her music is distinctly Southern, down to earth and brimming with sentiment and insight. Mellow and refreshingly simple, her songs draw the listener in with their heartening melodies and wistful vocals.
Gileah’s latest album, The Golden Planes, is the collaboration of four members, of whom Gileah is the singer/songwriter, rhythm guitarist, and pianist. Supporting her in this endeavor is her husband Chris Taylor; in addition to producing The Golden Planes, he accompanies her on guitar and provides background vocals. Kevin Woerner, a former 238 member, lends his talents on bass and percussion, and Ava Quigley sings background vocals.
The Golden Planes was released by the small label Gileah founded in 2005, Grey Hat Records.
