Gail Ward

Gail Ward-

Gail Ward: Trinidadian born Gail Ward is no stranger to change and taking risks.  She takes a “novel” approach to life, art and work.  “My parents always said life should read like a novel…no one wants to read one chapter…make it interesting!”  Interesting it has been indeed!

Gail is creative to her core and has used that creativity to the maximum from her beginning.  She was born a dancer and fine-tuned that talent by studying dance performance and education at the famed Alvin Ailey American Dance Center in New York.  Her passion for dance as a means of storytelling lead her to expand her talents to include choreography, acting & writing to create more three-dimensional story-based multimedia performance pieces.   Working with other like-minded artists, Gail has been able to create and showcase her own work at various multidiscipline venues such as the DIA Arts Center, BAM, PS122 and the Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies to name a few.  In creating her own work and performances she was able to hone her organizational and production skills that moving forward came in more than handy.

Gail was able to take her creativity merged with well-oiled organizational skills and write a new chapter working in the Music Industry.   Beginning in the vibrant A&R Department at Sony Music/Epic Records she cut her teeth working on recording and developing artists such as multiplatinum selling Celine DionGloria EstefanSadeLiving ColourPearl Jam and legendary artist Michael Jackson to name a few.  The stint at Epic opened the doors to her working with many artists and companies both small and large in many different capacities.  Some of her past positions have included Artist Development at DV8/A&M RecordsArtist Management @ Levin Management, A&R Administration & Production Management at Artemis/V2 Records.  She is also versed in organizing and running Live & Taped Shows, Special Events and Tours for artist Working with companies and venues such as SIRIUSXM, BET, MTV, Madison Square Garden, The House of Blues, The Cutting Room and more.

When the tide of the Music Industry changed; like many, Gail was looking for new opportunities to broaden and utilize her skill set. A chance encounter with an old friend and colleague led to another chapter in her book of life and she was recruited to Project Manage high profile Domestic and International Special Events for a Broadcast Television Company.  Some of those events have included, The Beijing and London Summer Olympics, The Royal WeddingThe World Cup in South Africa, Vancouver Winter Olympics, The Beijing Summer Olympics, The Oscars and The US Presidential Elections.

What’s next?  She’s still “writing”!  Gail has added visual artists to her bag of tricks and is in the process of launching LRH Productions aka “Little Red Hen” Productions, a multimedia production and creative consulting company. With LRH she intends to merge all her skills and challenge herself to bring it all to another level.

 “No limitations! I intend to continue to evolve, expand, educate and contribute the best I have to give and when all is said and done hope my book of life makes for a really fantastic read!”
