About Mike Gill

Mike Gill

Mike Gill is a busy musician/composer working mainly around Central Scotland. Based in Kilmarnock, he has owned and run various music stores, and toured Europe demonstrating organs and keyboards.

He started composing in the early '80s and had great success with a piece called "Fleur Blanche" - an instrumental for flute and orchestra.

Several BBC TV and radio plays followed including a performance by the BBC Radio Orchestra. Fleur Blanche has been recently re-recorded with a new arrangement and mastered at Abbey Road Studios in London to bring it up to date. Along with three new compositions it is currently available on a new CD.

The release of a CD called "The Sleeping Warrior" has attracted a lot of radio play including BBC Radio Scotland's "Reel Blend" and "Karyn Mac's Saturday Night Show" on Radio Westsound. It has also had several plays on local radio such as Oban FM, Celtic Radio Isles FM and more.

Originally released as a single, it is now available on an album called "Mike Gill - Heading Home" along with a pipe version by Calum Watson of Dumfries. Included are another eight original new tracks. The album has a relaxing Celtic West Coast sound.

Both CD's are available from this site or to download from iTunes & Amazon MP3.
