      Great music combined with conversation like we are all friends. A perfect venue for the intimacy of his style. Icarus By Night was a hit last night for all as well as his Billie Holiday performance and story.

      Vance, as always, finds all manner of great songs to sing (in addition to being a brilliant songwriter), and it was such a joy to just hang out and be a part of his constant musical exploration. And I truly enjoyed the chatting at the end. Thank you!

      The WHOLE concert was my fav, the only thing better would be having you and Deborah personally in my living room. You are an amazing talent and I am blessed to get to call you "friend"! Thanks, can't wait for the next one.

Yeah, you’ve heard of him. This stalwart of the acoustic music scene has been invited to sing everywhere from the Newport Folk Festival to TV’s The Voice and America’s Got Talent. Vance Gilbert has worked with performers as diverse as Tom Rush, Aretha Franklin, Arlo Guthrie,and Anita Baker, toured for 1-1/2 years with the late George Carlin, and currently does a mess of work with comedian and actor Paul Reiser. “The voice of an angel, the wit of a devil, and the guitar playing of a god” wrote the Fort Worth Star-Telegram after one of his many shows opening for Shawn Colvin’s “Fat City” Tour .
With 11 critically acclaimed cds, the latest being BaD Dog Buffet - currently heralded by Minor 7th Webzine as a "shimmering, soulful success" - Vance’s library of recordings has been lionized throughout the press. Vintage Guitar proclaims “His fervor for composing is as powerful as a Colorado thunderstorm.”
Hell, he even has a song on a Grammy nominated children’s album (free cd to the first 5 folks that can nail the recording)!!
His upcoming album of solo voice/guitar jazz standards, tentatively named "Standerdz", is set for release around the top of April.
A noted performance teacher and songwriting coach, Vance brings those skills to bear in his living room twice a week, at conferences and festivals throughout North America, and several times a year at the Berklee School of Music to many fledgling and professional performers.
