Gil Karpas is a soulful singer-songwriter, with all the multi-tracking, multi-instrumental, looping and performing finesse of a 21st Century troubadour. Described as “One smooth brother!!“ by BBC Introducing, Gil is now touring solo with his one man band of pedals, loopers, effects and tricks, all whilst simultaneously playing the guitar, the percussion, and singing his smooth, uplifting vocals.
Gil has supported a range of artists, these include bands such as The Brand New Heavies, Oi Va Voi and Balkan Beat Box and songwriters such as Chris Difford (Squeeze), Jamie Woon, Geva Alon, Boo Hewerdine, KT Tunstall and Kate Walsh and thats just a few of them.
Having already supported major UK and international artists at home and abroad with an impressive list of gigs, Gil is now releasing his EP and will be touring the UK in support of it in February 2012.
Gil is gaining a solid reputation for funky, upbeat original material, graced with a powerful soulful voice and a sensitive lyricism. With his broad musical heritage and unyielding creative passion, Gill will be gifting TEDxers with his utterly unique and enchanting music, and we’d love you to join us.
No smoke and mirrors, just original music.
