gil velazquez music

Photography by COUCOU photography

I started playing guitar and writing songs when I was 16 years old, and since then my music has been a crucial part of my life. Over the years, life has a way of throwing you curve balls, but my songwriting and recording hold it all together for me. So I appreciate you stopping by and listening to my music. My influences span a multitude of artists and styles over the years, but artists such as Carlos Santana, Joe Satriani, Jeff Beck, Prince, and Led Zeppelin are the main artists who have helped me cultivate my style over the years. I thank them so much for their music and the influence it has had on me as an artist. 

My goal is to continue writing and producing my digital EP and single releases. In addtion to having my music featured in TV and Film.

Throughout gilvelazquez.comyou will see a variety of live performance shots that were taken by some of the most talented photographers in New Jersey. I have been very fortunate to have gotten their attention behind the lens. 
I want to personally thank:
