Gigi Love-rhythm guitar and vocals
Chuck Davies-lead guitar
GiGi Love. If the name sounds familiar, perhaps it's because you were among the thousands listening to her open for the Dave Matthews Band at the Columbia River Gorge, or playing for the Salt Lake 2002 Winter Olympic Closing Ceremonies.
Maybe her infectious sound? Those smoky vocals and revealing songwriting loaded with energy, vulnerable passion and delicate poise burn a memory. Whether armed with an electric guitar or her worn acoustic, Love leaves an indelible imprint vocally, while juggling blues and rock with country and folk. Close on the heels of her hero, the great Bonnie Raitt, Love's influences include Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris, Joni Mitchell, Shawn Colvin, and Neil Young.
Like Willie Nelson, Gram Parsons and Townes Van Zandt, she earned her honky-tonk chops in Texas. At the age of seven, Love began performing and playing guitar. By 12, she was filling venues with names such as Johnny High's Country Music Review in Ft. Worth, and the Grapevine and Stevenville Opry Houses in Texas.
After the Olympics, in 2002, Gigi was picked up by Freedom Zone, Mountain Dews promotion agency. Love toured west of the Mississippi and Texas, gaining recognition and radio play with college and community stations across the land. The winter of 2011 saw Gigi touring with Duncan Phillips, son of the late great Utah Phillips, in a tribute band called Bums on the Plush. Her rendition of Utah's song "Going Away" can be heard on the Waterbug Label release, Long Gone,which currently is being played on Folk DJ stations nationwide.
Bluesy, honest, storytelling songs, depicting her travels, vision quests and dreams, enrapture her audiences and take them places.
