Review for The Lover's Walk on All About Jazz
Read the review from C. Michael Bailey

"One hears notes of Billie Holiday and Rickie Lee Jones with a hint of Madeleine Peyroux. That said, Guillou's voice is such a seamless synthesis that it is wholly unique. The sound of genre crossover at its most successful"
The Lover's Walk released on January 29, 2014
The recording I made on my recent trip to Belgium is now available for download and physical CD copies here online. 100% original music, a Belgian/Canadian collaboration project.
Romantic, soft, and a few upbeat surprises.

HURRAH, WE DID IT!!!
We made the Kickstarter goal!
Thank you thank you thank you everyone.
Last week the fundraising campaign for my new album reached a total goal of $3150. I am soooo overwhelmed and extraordinarily grateful for your support, encouraging words and most of all your ability to help me continue with my project.
STUDIES WITH SHEILA JORDAN
I just returned home from an amazing summer jazz workshop hosted by the Vermont Jazz Center where I got to spend a whole week studying with extraordinary vocalist Sheila Jordan.
I also studied with musicians Cameron Brown, Billy Drummond, Eugene Uman, Scott Mullet, Jeff Galindo, Ray Gallon, Harvey Diamond and many many more. The camp is a breeding ground for talented east coast American musicians, teachers and sublime human beings. It was inspiring and humbling to be around so much talent. I received an educational award from the BC Arts Council to study, and am very appreciative for their financial support.
LIVE CONCERT ON CBC TELEVISION
Did any of you have the opportunity to check out my tribute to Dinah Washington that aired on CBC Television? The concert was a one hour special tribute show I performed including interviews with myself, Quincy Jones, Red Robinson & Jim Byrnes.
It has aired nationally and globally on both Absolutely Canadian and Absolutely Vancouver, but you can watch a trailer for the show
