Maria Gillard Electronic Press Kit
Maria Gillard is a talented singer, songwriter, and educator from the Finger Lakes Region of New York State. She performs solo and with her four-piece swing/jazz band.
Her most recent CD, Mending, was released in January 2013.
Mending: Original compositions that beautifully illustrate Maria’s gentle swing and lyrical charm. It isn’t easy putting a guitar between you and the mirror then turning the reflection around for the world to see … unless you’re Maria Gillard.
— Frank DeBlase, City Newspaper, Rochester, NY
Maria Gillard sings from the soul, with a clear-eyed vision that cuts straight to your heart. Every time Maria sings, I learn something more about me.
— Julia Figueras, WXXI
One of Rochester’s premier singer-songwriters and torch carrier, Maria Gillard’s easy-going style is a trap, drawing the listener into lyrics that stare straight into the sun.
— Jeff Spevak, Rochester Democrat & Chronicle
