DEBUT ALBUM, RISE, COMING APRIL 26
“Classical music is shrugging off its fusty old mantle and embracing the young – and Jess Gillam is its new secret weapon!” – Sunday Times Culture
29 March 2019 (Toronto, ON) - Inspiring audiences young and old with her unstoppable energy and passion for music, enigmatic sax superstar Jess Gillam has released her new single, “Where Are We Now?” today via Decca Classics/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. Watch the video for “Where Are We Now” HERE.
The track is a cover of the David Bowie track of the same name, an artist who has inspired Jess musically throughout her life. The song was the first single from David Bowie's 24th studio album, The Next Day, and made it to the top of the charts in eight countries on the day of its release, January 8, 2013, Bowie's 66th birthday. Speaking on what would have been Bowie’s 72nd birthday after his death in 2016, Jess paid tribute to her hero, noting his “endlessly creative soul”.
Jess is set to make waves in early April with the launch of her new BBC Radio 3 series, This Classical Life, making her the youngest radio presenter on the classical music station. She returns to the Royal Albert Hall on April 30th for a concert celebrating the ‘Rising Stars’ of classical music, shortly after the release of her debut album Rise coming out April 26.
