You may find Gil to be a bit of a schizo- but that is a good thing. His songs run a gamut of styles from rock to techno, with a latin influence no doubt honed when touring Puerto Rico. What ties everything together is some great electric guitar playing ala Santana.

“When I first heard Gils’ music, it was as if I’d stumbled onto a Santana LP I had never heard. The style and flavor of the Latin influenced rock are very strong in Gil’s music and he is amazingly talented.
