Heartfelt Songs and Mostly True Stories

Sparlin Gothic Two

“Echoes of Joni Mitchell, Tom Waits, J.D. Souther & Linda Ronstadt in these heartrending and defiant songs.”  Patrick White, on Pokegama Hotel

Singer/Songwriter Gail Sparlin crafts intelligent pop songs colored with her childhood influences of folk, blues, country, and jazz. A northern Minnesota native and a music educator, she resides in the Capital District of upstate New York, performing in area venues, festivals, and weddings.



Gail’s most recent project is an original musical titled Pokegama Hotel. The show, a recipient of a community arts grant, premiered September 19, 2014 at the Quest Theatre in Schenectady with two weekends of warm audiences and enthusiastic praise.  A sincere and heartfelt thanks to all the folks that contributed to the successful Kickstarter project! The cast recording is in the works and the show will meet the stage again! Stop by the  Pokegama Hotel page for excerpts and highlights from the show! Check the  Calendar to find out where Gail is performing. Her most recent CD, “Beautiful Kiss,” is available on ITunes and CD Baby. Stay tuned for news on Gail’s upcoming CD, “The Epic of Gailgamesh.”
