Gayle de la Kruse "The Rose of New Orleans" was born on December 12th, 1951... in New Orleans, Louisiana. Her familly reaches back to the early 1800's and is steeped in Louisiana lore and traditions.

  Growing up in her native New Orleans she experienced many styles of musical influence in the "Gumbo" that The Cresent City has to offer. This inspired an unbridled push toward both Art and Music.

She began "pickin" when her Daddy gave her a Gibson Acoustic at age 17. Her Mama played the piano and from the age of 4 or 5 music has been Gayle's best friend and constant compannion..... [ more]
