“When songwriter Vance Gilbert exploded on the Boston scene, the boom was heard all over New England. News of this bold, infectious performer spread like prairie fire. No local performer in recent memory, not Tracy Chapman, not The Story, not Dar Williams – has gotten hotter faster than Gilbert…His catchy, pop friendly melodies support keenly crafted, hardhitting lyrics. His guitar is supple, his milk-warm tenor honest and gently acrobatic…he does not duck hard truths and never succumbs to the temptation to tie his points up in neat platitudes or truthisms. He writes powerfully and uncompromisingly about the wrenching separation suffered by single parents, the tug between love’s desire and it’s demands and thebitterness of being nonwhite in this Eurocentric culture…Gilbert has earned an unusually deep affection and loyalty from his fans. He is that rare performer for whom people lean forward in their seats as eagerly between songs as they do during them. These “Vance-heads” see him over and over again, always expecting to be surprised, never being disappointed.
——— Boston Globe ———
“Powerful and uncompromising”
“Devilishly good”
Gilbert’s three albums for the Rounder/Philo label – EDGEWISE (1994), FUGITIVES (1995), and the celebrated, arrestingly sparse SHAKING OFF GRAVITY (1998) – are all essential dditions to the American singer-songwriter collection. With guests as varied as Tuck and Patti, Jonatha Brooke, Patty Larkin, Dee Carstensen, Vinx, and Jane Siberry, all three albums found significant niches on NAC (New Adult Contemporary) and Non-Commercial A3 (Adult Album Alternative) radio. These discs were followed by the selfreleased SOMERVILLE LIVE (2000), his live recording lionized by the Boston Globe as the disc “young songwriters should study the way law students cram for bar exams”, and ONE THRU FOURTEEN (2002), a stylistically varied tour de force that New York’s Town and Village calls “lively, eclectic, electrifying and transcending.” Follow that with SIDE OF THE ROAD (2003), a duo album with Ellis Paul, lauded as “haunting, artful, and lovely” by Boston Magazine and nominated for a 2004 Boston Music Award.
UNFAMILIAR MOON stands as a most impressive cap to this discography. This is Vance Gilbert at his most fearless, timeless, compelling best. These examples of classic songwriting, presented with deep humanism and bravery, stunning artistry and soul, and unbridled joy are inarguably the blue ribbons that tie and seal the seemingly impossibly package that is………….Vance Gilbert

“Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’ ”  Matthew 25:34-40
