GLASYS (Gil Assayas) is a pianist, synthesist, producer and vocalist who delivers intricate virtuosic keyboard parts, electronic soundscapes and impassioned vocals in one package that combines his many influences including Electronic music, Alternative Rock, Jazz and Classical music.
Since relocating to the US two year ago, GLASYS has been endorsed by major gear manufacturers such as Nord Keyboards, 64 Audio, Sequential and Spectrasonics, has developed a large social media presence with over two million total video views, has been featured on the GRAMMY's website, and has had his song 'The Pressure' played at a Portland Trailblazers NBA game. Recently, he was discovered by Hip-Hop giant T-Pain on reddit and the two are now collaborating. GLASYS is also currently touring with legendary 70s-80s band Utopia (led by Todd Rundgren).
"HO. LY. SHIT! I've never seen anything like this in my life. Man. PM me if you wanna work together, bro. This is amazing!" - T-Pain.
"A master at the keys, Isreal instrumentalist Gil Assayas shares animated vocals with faultless keyboard and synth playing to make jazzy electronic you can't help but dance to." - The Deli Portland.
"From the first bar of the title track of Glasys’ debut EP The Pressure, it is already clear that Gil Assayas is a musician of rare talent and skill. The Portland based Assayas is possessed of rather intimidating piano chops and assembled an impressive collective of musicians for the project." - Jonathan Wilson, Northwest Music Scene.
"Glasys, one of the best new acts to emerge out of Portland in quite some time. The brainchild of producer extraordinaire Gil Assayas, Glasys layers gorgeous keyboards on top of poppy, delicate vocals." - Marissa Abruzzini, Tour Worthy.
GLASYS released his debut EP 'The Pressure' in September 2016. It is available on Bandcamp, CDBaby, iTunes, Spotify and all streaming services. His first full length album was successfully funded on Kickstarter and will be released in mid 2019.
