Gail Mack


Gail Mack has been a fixture in the Hawaii music scene. For so many years I had heard of her and her band George Street. Her smooth and beautiful voice can be heard with her band George Street, on CDs by Peter Moon and Aaron Aranita. I met Gail thru Aaron Aranita and she was very gracious to sing on my first CD Revelations. It was such a blessing to finally meet Gail and to have her be a part of my first recording project. My wife compared Gail's voice to that of the one and only Karen Carpenter, now that is a great compliment. Gail is one of those who has the gift of a great ear and can sing pretty much anything you put in front of her. Here's a review of her solo CD that was released a couple of years back.

Pacific Snowbird: Gail Mack (MGC)


GAIL Mack has been best known for the past 15 years as a member of George Street, but she has occasionally recorded with other artists.

Mack has a beautiful voice for ballads, and sings folk, Hawaiian, Spanish and Top 40 oldies with consistent appeal.

Two new songs are notable showcase numbers. "Hamakua" was previewed on the 1997 "Homegrown" album. "Snowbird" is an original song co-written with George Street's Gordon Kim.

George Street's Steve Min is also among Mack's platoon of studio musicians and guest artists. Peter Moon stars on guitar and 'ukulele; Ernie Cruz Jr. shines in several duets. Kimo Cornwell (organ) adds religious overtones to a beautiful arrangement of "The River Is Wide."

Mack's voice makes her romantic remake of David Gates' "Make It With You" a winner. Remakes of two Bobby Darin classics are problematic despite her voice; Darin and his arrangements are hard to surpass.
