"Dene Songwriter Keeps His Promise"

"Gilday's music shares a pace in common with other innovative contemporary folk-rock acts such as Winnipeg's The Weakerthans. His thoughtful lyrics, however, share more affinity with classic artists such as Leonard Cohen, and Buffy St. Marie."

"Jay Gilday "All I Can GIve For Now""

" I suppose I am like just about everyone else when it comes to music and only pay attention to it when I hear something new and different enough to grab my attention. In the case of Jay's music this happened to me at this year's Folk On the Rocks Annual Music Festival."

The band came together to record Jay's Album - "All I Have To Give For Now" In the fall of 2009. Since then Jay, Jon, and Adam have played a bunch of gigs in Edmonton and several northern music festivals.

Jay, still a Yellowknifer at heart, brings a "country meets city" feel to the stage with bandmates both hailing from Edmonton.

"Musically, we push each other to write differently than we would separately. We each bring a lot to the table. Synergy baby."

Life changes and positive friendships are keeping the band busy writing new stuff all the time. "We are hoping to share our music with more people. We're working on the next record. All of us have so much to say."

The power trio steps up the vibe for live performances. "We've always had huge energy live that is different than in the studio."

Improvisation, and emotion are a key part of the band's connection to a live audience.
