About Gary Sill

Gary Sill became one of Canada's leading new age artists, releasing numerous commercially successful albums, some of them medatative, others solo instrumental. The pianist and composer was born on September 28, 1944, in Fort Macleod, Alberta, to a bandleader father and journalist mother. He has studied at both the Banff Centre for the Arts and the University of Calgary; taught at Grant McEwan College; worked as a jazz pianist throughout Canada for years; and lived in Vancouver, Calgary, and Edmonton before permentantly residing in the Canadian Rockies resort town of Banff with his wife, photographer Carole Harmon. Sill has composed music for CBC Radio, theater productions, and more but is perhaps best known for his solo recordings. His Music for Relaxation series for PacificLine was commercially successful as was his series of Sufi recordings for Sound of Light. Sill won much more acclaim for his series of piano albums that began in 2000 with Healing Moon, followed annually by Spring Is in the Poet and Restless Hearts. These albums all charted highly on NAV's Top 100 chart. ~ Jason Birchmeier
