Welcome to the official site of Carolyn Gillman.
The sound is strictly contemporary, the message is positive Gospel, the Spirit is definitely from above! Carolyn Gillman, writer, keyboardist, vocalist, arranger, producer, wife, and mother of two, began her musical journey at an early age. Coming from a musical family who also had a strong faith, she not only studied classical piano and voice at the University of South Florida but was also influenced greatly by the rousing, fiery, camp meeting songs, which she heard in her church.
What has evolved as a result of these factors is a well trained, seasoned musician bringing excellence to her craft but also bringing much, much, more; a knowledge and sensitivity to the things of the Spirit. The solid foundation of the Word acquired in her youth is ever present in her performance as well as in her writing.
For several years Carolyn was the writer, arranger, one of the vocalists, and keyboardist for the group, Revelation. The album, “For His Glorious Majesty” on the Benson Label, established her as a valid writer when several songs from that album were recorded by other major artists. The classic, “And He’s Ever Interceding,” went to #1 on the CCM charts and stayed there for several months. It has recently been recorded on the Bill Gaither Homecoming Video, “This is My Story.”
About the album, Contemporary Keyboard Magazine said, “whether Carolyn is doing an oblique quote from “Sheep May Safely Graze” on piano in the title cut or backing up a bluesy saxophone solo with some smokin’ organ chords, her playing is wonderfully tasteful.”
Carolyn’s musical gifts have taken her to such places as Poland, Norway, Germany, Sweden, Russia, Jamaica, Disney World, The 700 Club, and Many Jesus Festivals, churches, and campuses across the country.
Not only is her music creative, fresh, and tasteful, but to be in one of her concerts is truly a worshipful experience because Carolyn has the heart of Praise and Worship in her music. (Integrity Hosanna! Recorded one of her songs, “Sing Hallelujah” on their “Take This City” Praise tape, recorded during Mardi Gras.)
From the soft whisper of Worship, to the high sounding affirmation of her strong Faith, Carolyn’s varied styles and candid statements hold audiences of all ages captive! Her first solo release, “BORN TO FLY”, received impressive airplay and great reviews from DJ’s and fans!! “The phones light up. . . .people call in, in tears after we play the song, He Covers Me” (which went to #1!) (DJ, WSOR FM, Ft. Myers, FL)
Check out her new release, “CHRYSALIS,” which brings us yet another fresh, creative, inspirational, worshipful, well produced, Word-packed, musical package! Carolyn’s many musical influences keep the listener not only tuned in Spiritually on her musical journey but also enjoying the ride!<-->
