I was attending a songwriting critique seminar at the CCMA’s in Calgary when Gilles first approached me after hearing one of my songs. He had moved to Nashville several years earlier and was representing a publishing company at the time. He invited me down to see him on my next trip to Music City and we’ve remained friends ever since.
After a successful writing position with Curb Music, he was called by a new publishing company to head the Nashville office. Today Gilles is Vice President of Operations with OLE Music publishing, the largest independent music publisher in the world. Not to worry, Gilles will always be a down home boy.
