Feeling a bit camera shy


Faith Gilmore was born and raised in New Orleans (1978) listening to the sounds of Motown, the Mama’s and the Papa’s, Joni Mitchell, Amy Grant, Stevie Wonder, and Mariah Carey. Faith sang her first solo in 2nd grade at a school play and then joined the Word of Faith Academy Concert Choir where she was taught theory, music composition, and ear training as early as sixth grade. Singing solos became a regular gig for Faith in both school and church venues. She competed among vocalists on the state level and placed superior ratings on different occasions. She was enlisted in a 5-person choral group at her church and sang the National anthem for 8,000 people at a New Orleans Zephyrs baseball game.
From 9th-11th grade, she became a student at an arts school which offered vocal classical music concentration called N.O.C.C.A. (New Orleans Center for Creative Arts). There, she gained extensive training in music history, composition, theory, and classical voice, in the wake of Harry Connick Jr. Though she had been dabbling in the art of songwriting since 3rd grade, the songs didn’t really begin to take shape until she attended Mississippi College, when she taught herself to play the guitar. She performed these songs at coffee shops near the college. While working on her degree in social work, she was part of a song and dance troupe. In that group, Faith was able to showcase her versatility in different musical genres, by soloing hits from many decades.
In 2001, she moved to Nashville and began co-writing and collaborating with other songwriters while working as a social worker at a women’s home full-time. She built up her repertoire of songs as well as her monetary savings to record her first full production album. She is preparing for that c.d. release and following performances. Faith’s style is a fusion of soul and acoustic folk similar in style to Sarah McLachlan, Dido, and India Arie. Faith wants her music to communicate truth and a raw transparency about life, with its ups and downs, and the why behind what we do.
