June News Vol. 1 

We made a video for Map In My Heart a few days ago! Well, we didn't- our friend Mark Little did. We simply walked around and did what Mark told us to do. And the resulting video is quite lovely! We visited the pier and Jolee Island in Sandestin, the bridge in Nature Walk at Seagrove and the gorgeous Eden Gardens State Park in Santa Rosa Beach.
We have to thank Mark for his hard work and for being willing to do videos for our songs. Our friends Brianna May (wife of our guitarist Ben May,) Shawn Brown, and Mark played our friends in the video. And our friend TJ Mallory let us borrow his sweet Mercedes- it matched Chris' shirt perfectly! ;)

May News Vol. 2 

Our new album is out now! Here's the link to buy. You can also buy on iTunes or Amazon. If you order from us, then you'll get either CD or LP via the United States Postal Service AND a download code of the album now!

Here's a video we recorded in the living room. It's one of my favorite songs. The first time I heard Radiohead I was sitting in the backseat of my friend Hannah's car. She and her sister put on OK Computer and I almost couldn't handle the loveliness. OK Computer and The Bends were the soundtrack to my teen years. Hannah and her husband Shawn also took the photos for the album artwork, and she designed the cover! 


 

May News Vol. 1 

We've got some marvelous news for you today!

(Marvelous....what a word. It reminds me of Miss Mavis, a blind lady who used to play organ at my church when I was little. And it also makes me think of marmalade. So I'm hearing the resonance of the old organ and I can nearly taste a slice of toast spread with something sweet.)

And now we return to our regular programming: 

Our new single, Love On This Island, is available NOW on NoiseTrade. We also included a song from Chris and a song from me...so it is the perfect introduction to our music.

Would you please share this with your friends? We would love to reach a few more people with our music, and YOU are the conduit. If you tell your friends, and they happen to listen and like (which they probably will, because they're your friends, and you have similar interests, and you like similar bands, and they trust you...but they don't trust us yet, because they don't know us like you do. We would love for you to introduce us!) 



Here's the link- http://www.noisetrade.com/chrisandgileah/love-on-this-island. NoiseTrade (an incredible resource for new music, by the way!) has buttons for sharing on Facebook and Twitter.

AND...The Good News Train is still coming down the track: The Gileah and The Ghost Train album (from 2007) and the Gileah Taylor EPs (from 2010) are available as a single download! 

Click here for the Gileah downloads.


Thank you for reading...thank you for listening....thank you for sharing. 

Love,
Gileah
-(for the two of us)

April News Vol. 4 

Last day of April....and the showers are still coming down. 
Fingers crossed for May flowers soon.

Here is a video Chris recorded last night. I wrote the song several years ago, and never recorded it. Chris always liked it and at some point we realized that it belonged to him. 

We are working on a free download section for this site, and I will definitely put this one on there!

Love,
Gileah

April News Vol. 2 

We shot the video for one of the songs from our new album! The song is Love On This Island. It's the first song I wrote for the new album. When I wrote it, I assumed I would be doing another solo record. I didn't mind that so much, but it was starting to feel stale and kind of 'been there, done that' and I didn't know if I had that much more to say. So after I finished the song, I asked Chris (just for fun) to sing the verses for me. He'd heard the song a few times while I was writing it, and from the very first line he sang I knew that it was far beyond anything I could do on my own. That was the day we became a duo. And my goodness, I am thankful.

Our friend Mark Little, from Sunbird Studios, met up with us at Chris' parents house the first weekend in April. The Taylors have a lovely Albin boat and Chris' dad, Tim, offered to take Mark and Chris out into the harbor so they could shoot for the video. It was very, very foggy. I don't think there were any fishermen in Destin that day who were pleased with the weather. We couldn't have been happier. The gorgeous fog stayed low all morning long, and then lifted just enough for us to finish shooting down at the east jetty.

We'll be posting the video very soon! I'll let you know as soon as we do. 

April News Vol.1 

Hello friends....hello Spring....welcome in! 

(Every day when Chris comes home from work, our daughter Mercie shouts, "WELCOME IN!" 
I'm likely to open the window in the same joyful spirit, but our neighbors are really close
Maybe I'll walk outside and welcome the new season politely, in my inside voice.)

Well, we are getting closer to our May 27th release date. We'll be working on the first video for the album this weekend. Mark Little of Sunbird Studios will be filming for a song called Love On This Island. I'll be updating you via Twitter and Facebook, so follow us if you haven't already!

Here's a video we filmed in our living room last week. I remember wandering around Kmart with my mom when I was little; this song came on and I fell in love with it immediately. Sweet Kenny and lovely Dolly.
