Gisèle’s song “Nature Love” chosen for Surfing Video, NSW Coastalwatch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsBvQlioXhU

“Australia-based vocalist/violinist Gisele Scales has been gaining quite a bit of attention for her recordings, which combine dance music beats with violin and even “green” themes. Unusual to be sure, as are the vocals sung/spoken in English, French, Italian and German. If this all sounds quite creative........you’re right.
The clever synth programming and never-let-up house beats practically drag you forcibly to your feet and demand you boogie your ass off………………….
Scales’ breathy vocals are well suited for this material and her violin technique is excellent.
Scales is a founding member of the Canberra Youth Orchestra, so she obviously has a strong musical background. This disc hints at a strong future of combining techno with the more innovative musicality of prog….and there’s something undeniably catchy about songs like “Nature Love.” One can definitely see Scales’ music catching on.” -- Jim Cirile

Sydney electronic violinist & vocalist Gisèle Scales album “2 Think” continues to invade music circles all over the world, after her single ‘Special’ held the No.1 spot in the dance charts of Japan’s indie music portal Musictrax, for a total of 82 weeks: http://musictrax.jp/index.php?t=jr_charts

This success in Japan comes after ‘Special’ made it into the Top 20 Best Australian songs online poll, run by The Weekend Australian Magazine: http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/features/top-of-the-pops-19882008/story-e6frg8h6-1111117529727

The album “2 Think” marks Gisèle’s solo debut after several years as a band and session musician for the likes of Midnight Oil (10 to 1 award-winning album), Thomas Dolby and Eurogliders. She had a No.1 hit in Europe with the band Vega , with their single “Mother Egypt”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEeHlRuFnKo

Finalist in Best Fiddler Soloist category in the 2008 Golden Fiddle Awards http://goldenfiddleawards.org.au/winners-finalists.php

A founder member of the Canberra Youth Orchestra, Gisèle first found herself in front of a mic as backing Vocalist for Peter Garrett's ANU college band Devil’s Breakfast. At University of Sydney she studied languages and was 1st Violin with the Music Department Orchestra. Graduating with honours, Gisèle took up a teaching scholarship in Paris for a year then moved to London. Translator/interpreter by day, she moonlighted as Vocalist/Violinist/Writer/Arranger with post-punk band The Recruits, soul record producer Ches Haynes, Vega (Their single "Mother Egypt" was a European No.1), Eurogliders, Midnight Oil and Thomas Dolby.

Also working as a TV scriptwriter and actor Gisèle became a broadcaster with the BBC World Service. Returning to Australia she presented programs for ABC Radio National and Classic FM until the birth of her son. She currently produces and hosts a quarterly In-Flight music program Concert Hall for Qantas. Gisèle toured for Musica Viva in schools with the Vocal Quartet Blindman’s Holiday. She continues to work as a freelance Composer/Violinist/Vocalist, her most recent credits being for Piaf sensation Jeannie Lewis’ latest release ‘Southeart’. Gisèle was also the violinist with the Argentinian/Uruguayan tango band Tango del Angel.

Drawing on this diversity of experience, but being essentially a composer/performer of contemporary music with a groove, Gisele has recorded her own CD of dance/trance music, with world influences, including some French, Italian & German vocals. It features soaring electric violin and vocals with beats, over lush keyboard soundscapes.

Gisèle Scales ‘2 Think’ CD is an inspirational journey; a motivational celebration of Life Language and Love – magic on the dance floor!
