Join us as the Road to Riverfest continues with one of this year's most anticipated performers, Ariana Gillis! Ariana Gillis https://www.arianagillis.com/ Dave Marsh Author/Music Critic/Radio Host/Historian: “I’ve never seen an unknown performer with more power as when I saw Ariana…. I couldn’t stop talking about her. She may be the best new emerging artist anywhere.” Bernie Taupin Elton John/Grammy-award winning songwriter: “I'm staggered by how good she is. There's not much that impresses me these days but after hearing her available tracks, I can honestly say she's the single most exciting artist I've heard in a long time.” The above quotes are typical of the excitement Canada’s Ariana Gillis was creating from the earliest stages of her career. But after sustaining a serious concussion in 2015, Ariana believed that she would never be able to write & perform music again. Well, she’s proving herself wrong, as after an extended period of recovery she's back with some exceptional new music. Freedom, the first song released from her most recent sessions, presents a timely statement surrounding the repression of human rights around the globe. “At its core, it touches on equity & the important value of human kindness ". – Ariana.
