Bio

G. F. Mlely is critically acclaimed around the world as a pianist and composer, whose songs have been produced and recorded by George Harrison, Freddie Hubbard, Phil Perry, John Tesh, The Cunninghams, the latter on a Grammy nominated album.

Mlely’s current projects include two musicals, for which he’s written the books, lyrics, dialogues, and music: “Venice,” given a first reading by the Bookshop Theatre Ensemble (dramaturg/Director Cindy Jenkins), and a theater-cabaret work, “Life Death & Jazz.” A previous musical theater stage work of his, “And All That Jazz” (originally “Cocktail Lounge”) ran four months in San Francisco, for which he wrote lyrics and dialogue, composed, musically directed a 14-member cast and played piano in.

Described by Dr. Marshal Stokes in The Washington Post, as “A tour de force of leading edge pianists,” Mlely performed as a featured soloist in concert, festival and club venues, including those on a tour in Europe, from which he had to leave midway, suddenly called back to America to take care of a domestic situation requiring his immediate presence. See journalist Nathan Gold’s much published article at .

During what turned out to be nearly two decades away from active performing, raising his son as a single parent in a rural region of California, it gave him the time to lay the basis of many of his current projects, a catalogue of material for songs, multidisciplinaryworks, choral compositions that have premiered in Hawai’i and Los Angeles. “Threnody,” a composition from his critically acclaimed solo piano album Re-Entry was picked for “Typewriter Dreams,” a New York off-Broadway theater production.

Director of the Pacific Songwriters Workshop, his songwriting workshop in the Hawai’i Department of Education was the first nationally as an accredited subject in a secondary school. His video series, “Jazz Piano with G. F. Mlely,” was in reruns over 2 years on Olelo Television of Hawai’i, another first in that state.

Mlely also writes essays on the art, craft, and politics of jazz and songwriting, and published a book, “The 8-Tone Quarto-Modes Concept,” new thinking in new music theory.
