Gaye Delorme
Calgary Bluesfest (2005), Calgary Bluesfest Warmup Dance Party (2011)

Internationally renowned guitarist, vocalist and tunesmith, Gaye Delorme is one of the most recorded aural artists on the North American music scene today. This Grammy-nominated songwriter worked for many years scoring films for Columbia Pictures and recently returned to Canada to embrace his original love of live performance.

Delorme possesses a musical range unparalleled - from gut wrenching blues to improvisational jazz-influenced experimentation to stunning flamenco styling. He has mapped the existing musical territory and beyond. He brings his wide-ranging musical influences, from the country stylings of Chet Atkins and Doc Watson to the Brazilian Jobim, into his production work as well.

Gaye has produced such Canadian superstars as k.d. Lang and Jann Arden and co-produced several artists in Los Angeles with critically acclaimed composer David Foster.

For the last 10 years Gaye has appeared as signature performer at the Edmonton Folk Festival where he's hosted the International Guitar Stage.

His own studio work has brought forth five fantastic albums: the Blue Wave Sessions, a work much compared with Dire Straight's Mark Knopfler; Borderline, a country rock innovation; Beautiful Guitar an international musical exploration of original compositions for Spanish guitar; Rodeo Songs, some kickin' country comedy crafted around Gaye's groundbreaking hit; and his latest, a compilation of Gaye's Best.
