|Has been playing clubs professionally since the age of 14 (dont bother to tell the local authorities the statute of limitations has passed!). At 17 she traveled to England and performed at a variety of venues. Between gigs she recorded her own original music at Island Record Studios. Later, she played with numerous original groups and various latin jazz artists, including Dave Valentin.
Santana has always been a great source of inspiration for Gayle. As a teenager, Gregg Rolies (Santanas original keyboardist/vocalist and a huge contributor to the signature Santana sound) picture adorned her bedroom wall. So it was quite a thrill when she hung out and talked shop with Gregg on his recent East Coast tour.
Taboo is a band where Gayle lets her love of Santana (and Gregg Rolie) hang out. According to Gayle: Ill be playing til I cant move my fingers any more!
