Get to know Gil

I have more than 35 years of experience as a musician. I was a very young man of 14 when I started driving my parents crazy!

I began playing my first acoustic guitar after school with my friends, practicing long hours until I got to play lead guitar and bass guitar in cover bands in Mexico and the U.S.

This is where rock, hard rock and blues became my major influences to learn music.

My love for music led to me to study sound engineering and that allowed me to work in theaters and clubs around the world.
