Canadian singer-songwriter Ariana Gillis creates whimsical, addictive folk-pop story songs. Audiences respond instantly to the yearning voice, unguarded emotion and irresistible hooks that are the hallmarks of her music. Between her CDs and her playful, muscular live performances, Ariana has won over even the most jaded critics: Dave Marsh, the "dean of American rock writers," admits to being her biggest fan. Bernie Taupin, Elton John's lyricist says: "Her stage presence is the most visually grabbing I've ever seen." Tonight she celebrates the release of a new EP, "Head Full of Stars," which came out of months of recovery following a very serious head injury.
