Vance Gilbert burst onto the singer/songwriter scene in the early 90’s when buzz started

spreading in the folk clubs of Boston about an ex-multicultural arts teacher who was

knocking ’em dead at open mics. Born and raised in the Philadelphia area, Vance

started out hoping to be a jazz singer, and then discovered his affinity for the storytelling

sensibilities of acoustic folk music. Once word got out about Gilbert’s stage-owning

singing and playing, Shawn Colvin invited him to be special guest on her whole Fat City tour.

 

Noted not only for being the ever consummate performer, Gilbert has recorded 13

albums, including 5 for Philo/Rounder Records. Along with being opener of choice for

artists as varied as Aretha Franklin, Arlo Guthrie, and Anita Baker, 2006 and 2007 found

Gilbert opening 140+ shows for the late George Carlin. Most recently he’s the opener

of choice for Paul Reiser, the Milk Carton Kids, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, 

and the Subdudes, along with his own acoustic music touring schedule.

 

Considered by many to be an integral part of the national folk scene, Gilbert’s approach

to the acoustic singer songwriter idiom is significant. Gilbert’s compositions, while

frequently employing sophisticated melodies and harmonies that attest to his jazz roots,

remain sublime attestations to the storyteller’s craft. Recently, international pop star Mike Posner 

(I Took A Pill In Ibiza) has included a handful of Vance’s tunes on his next album. Vance even 

has a tune on a Grammy Nominated children’s album!
