Gail Dreifus bought her first guitar at “Goodwill” at the age of 14 and has been writing songs since she could string a series of basic chords together. Starting with songs of protest and heartfelt love songs, Gail also writes about nature and history. Inspired by living in Yosemite National Park, she developed a program of original songs about the park which has been performed for over 25 years for children and their guardians. Her songs are catchy, appealing and it is surprising to note how much information is incorporated in the lyrics.
Gail produced seven CDs for National Parks across the United States and has performed them with her children’s band, “Recycled String Band.” Her writing credits include an award from the National Park Service in Washington, DC for her musical Interpretation and presentation of national parks and monuments. Gail has performed at many festivals including Millpond, Strawberry and venues throughout California.
Gail is the lead singer of Meltwater Bridge Band, and 2 Pisces, which performs Gail’s original music throughout California. Currently Gail performs with her bands and also as a solo musician.
Gail started recording her new CD “Heartstorm” right before the 2020 pandemic. This features her solo music career of 10 original songs produced by musician Joe Craven. Stay tuned for the release and tour of Heartstorm.
