Raised in King George County, and currently living in the Fredericksburg area, Mike Gill has spent his life enjoying a variety of styles of music to include Motown, R&B, Country, and Rock. His love for writing poetry led him to write songs, and inspired a desire to sing. Shy about singing in public, he nevertheless decided to try his luck in some talent contests.
To complete his musical sound, he picked up the guitar and taught himself to play. During his first public guitar performance, the crowds response to his country version of “Purple Rain” filled him with feelings of excitement and accomplishment. Open mikes led to local exposure, which led to playing shows for local venues, in the towns of Spotsylvania, Fredericksburg, Virginia Beach, King George, Stafford even West Virginia.
Playing originals and cover songs alike, he carries his acoustic guitar on his side as he enters each venue, with only one thing in mind… putting on a show and sharing his passion for music. His saying goes, “Making Music, Living a Dream, Connecting with People.” If you’re interested in finding out more, be sure to find him on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook under Mike Gill Music.
