ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With her unique style and unforgettable voice, Gillian Hobbs is a breath of fresh air in today's music scene.

Gillian is a gifted singer/songwriter from Vancouver, Canada, whose ability to capture human emotion in her lyrics enables her to touch the hearts of her audience, and to connect with them on many different levels.

Inspired by brilliant folk musicians like Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Alan Doyle, and Jann Arden, Gillian's music is honest, heartfelt and inspiring.

Gillian's rich voice is a pleasure to listen to, and her catchy melodies will undoubtedly get stuck in your head.

What truly sets Gillian's music apart are her lyrics. Her music ranges from love ballads to songs that inspire, and it expresses wisdom usually found in someone at least twice her age. She carefully crafts her melodies and accompaniment to support the strong messages in her lyrics. Her music touches and inspires those who hear it. She wants her listeners to take her words to heart and encourages them to follow their dreams.


Gillian Hobbs' debut release, "Something to Write Home About," is the culmination of two years of hard work and growth by the young Vancouver artist. In it, she showcases both her emotional depth, and her skill as a songwriter and musician. Her lyrics will inspire and her melodies will have you singing along for hours.

"Saying that she has a great voice is just a given. What sets Gillian Hobbs apart from most contemporary artists is how uplifting her music is. Not in a heavy-handed or preachy way either, in a way that simply lifts you up and makes you smile and sing along."
-Gregory Milne
Photographer, Film-maker

"Gillian's voice has a very pure and fresh quality. It's very rich and powerful. Her lyrics are genuine and easy to relate to. They grab you. The song arrangements are beautiful and harmonies on the album bring the songs to a whole new level."
-Fiona McLachlin
Singer/Performer
