YOU KNOW THIS VOICE…
DETROIT MUSIC AWARD WINNER 2015 Outstanding Americana Vocalist
DETROIT METRO TIMES: about Gia Warner …. “an excellent singer/songwriter with a strong, heart-ripping voice and a gift for writing a radio-friendly angsty pop tune.”
CD'S~ "GIA", "GIA LIVE" at the Music in the Air Festival, Single "Over the Rainbow", Christmas single "Happy Christmas (the war is over), and Brand new CD "LOVE" .
~ GIA WARNER’s evocative voice has reached you through film scores for composers ANGELO BADALAMENTE and JOSEPH LODUCA, international television work for the series XENA, WARRIOR PRINCESS, HERCULES, LEGEND OF THE SEEKER, and countless national ads for clients like NBC, FORD, CHIQUITA and CADILLAC. In her home town of Detroit you have heard her on spots for Greektown Casino, D.O.C., Gardner White Furniture, Shore Mortgage and many, many more. What do these industry people know that you don’t? The answer to that is GIA WARNER.
Her self-titled disc, live disc, Single, and soon to be released CD, lets GIA apply that astounding instrument to her own heart-felt songs. Centered around her guitar and gospel-tinged piano, the CD fuses all the musical elements that are second nature to a Detroit girl. The rock solid songwriting is steeped in influences ranging from HEART and JONI MITCHELL to JANIS JOPLIN and BONNIE RAITT. The comparisons evaporate when you hear GIA’s singular voice wrapped around these great songs. She rocks, she grooves, and the heartbreak ballads will leave you dead in your tracks. GIA’s dad, legendary musician BOBBY LEWIS was signed to MOTOWN RECORDS when she was still a babe-in-arms, resulting in her spending the first years of her life “on the road.” She had a front row view of musical legends and that influence is apparent in her writing, playing and singing.
The Motor City has always been a hotbed of musical activity, and GIA has risen to the top of her game as a first-call singer in this no-nonsense environment. She has been nominated Outstanding Rock/Pop artist over and over again by the Detroit Music Awards. GIA WARNER is a one-of-a-kind singer/songwriter, her songs reflect a lifetime of feeling, expressing, and living music.
~”Gia is simply the most talented and versatile singer I have ever worked with. Over the years, I have had to write for the human voice in every way imaginable. Name practically any genre from any culture in any era (or invent one); Gia is fearless, a quick study, and an artist. She will nail it every time, and I am humbled.”
(Music producer Xena, Warrior Princess, Hercules, Legend of the Seeker, films Le Pacte Des Loups, Evil Dead)
~ “Gia has always been a great performer. She is totally smoking and burning and grooving beyond anything I could have imagined. Humble Admirer-Disciple-Groupie,”
(Recording and touring Drummer with Eric Clapton, John Lennon, James Taylor, Roxy Music, Sly and the Family Stone)
~ “Gia’s always been a great singer, among the best in town, if not anywhere. However, with these songs and performances she blows that public image to bits and is reborn an artist. A beautiful Solo debut.”
