Gintarė – singer, songwriter, performer, producer and programmer is best described by great British producer the late Gus Dudgeon, who extensively worked with Gintarė in 1993-97, “it has all the quality of a diamond – it is timeless while being undeniably contemporary, polished by the surreal dream like beauty of her vocal performances, enhanced by in depth intelligence of her luminous poetry.” She composes and performs her own music which renders itself to refined high end contemporary - alternative pop with the elements of elaborate rhythm and ambiance, spellbinding live piano performances as well as edgy computer programming.  ”Endless vocal abilities” – said French composer, pianist Didier Marouani, whom Gintarė performed with in 1992.


Academically trained in classical piano and jazz since the age six Gintarė excelled in art of composition and vocal performance. Just 7 years old she composed and wrote down song “Skylark” for radio competition and won the first price, song was performed by music school children’s choir on national radio.  By the age 13 she had in her concert repertoire one of the most challenging piano pieces in music literature, Piano Concerto No 1 in g- minor by F. Mendelssohn which she performed for her graduation at the end of 7 years of education at children's music academy followed by four years of conservatory where she studied piano and composition among a multitude of other disciplines her expertise being piano works by F. Liszt, S. Rachmaninoff, F. Chopin, J. Bach, O. Messiaen,  Oscar Peterson and Keith Jarrett.  Five years later she performed her own music for entry exams of High Music Academy where she studied classical and jazz piano for couple more years until her emigration to the United States.  She became an American citizen in 1984.


During teen years in her native Lithuania parallel to academic music and high school education, she developed illustrious career in pop music world. Gintare was first teen superstar in her own country (and still is) and way beyond. Her ability to perform  an extraordinarily complicated vocal stunts as well as in-depth musicality and beauty her voice has led to discovery of her and decades of creative partnership with Russian composer and leading film music producer Eduard Artemiev who wrote music for nearly all films of Andrey Tarkovsky among many others. Together they have also performed live concerts at the Filharmonium Concert Halls of St. Petersburg, Vilnius, Kaunas, Riga and other.   At the age 14 she wrote and performed music in films, theater, and television wrote hit songs “Wooden Horses”, “In the Heart of Clover” and other. Her song “Lily of the Lord” written after her emigration to the U.S. has reached anthem-like proportions of popularity and was performed for decades by many artists, choirs, orchestras and bands at home and abroad, featured in films, television and radio shows and in 2009 Gintarė was invited to perform the song with an international choir of 20,000 professional singers from around the World at the song festival in Vilnius dedicated to 1000 year jubilee of Lithuania.
In the early 90's while residing in Oxford (U.K.), she drew attention of famous producer Gus Dudgeon (who produced Elton John, David Bowie, Beach Boys) and began collaboration producing her songs “Butterflies”, “Transcenavigation”, “Hysteria” and others for her first album.  She recorded and co-produced her own music with many distinctive artists and producers such as Gaeton Schurrer (Madonna), Adam Wakeman (Annie Lennox, Travis), Andrew Claxton (Dead Can Dance), Neil MacLallan (Prodigy) and many others.


In 1997 she signed a record deal with EMI and a publishing contract with SONY in UK.  Her album “Earthless” was launched in March 2000 and was well received by critics and fans alike. Club remixes were launched by artists such as Patrick Pulsinger, Sasha, Gaeton Shurer and others.  Songs from the CD reached number 13 and 24 on music charts in England, and “Guilty” which reached number 10 on the Club charts.  The song “Hysteria” was featured in Hollywood box office hit “xXx” staring Vin Diesel (the movie credits list the song “Hysteria” but in reality the song is “Earthless”).   The CD and singles packaging design has been featured in the book “CD Art – Innovation in CD Packaging Design” by Charlotte Rivers.


In 2003 Gintare released her second album “Feathermark” on her record label SkySonic Records with producer Michael McInnis. 
In 2009  her first CD in Lithuanian  ”Kol Prašvis” was released for jubilee of 1000 years of Lithuania followed by an extensive concert tour. This time she collaborated with celebrated American recording engineer Lincoln Clapp (Whitney Houston, Barbara Streisand, Aretha Franklin, Eric Clapton, Bee Gees and many more). Gintarė speaks 4 languages, travels extensively loves history, science, fashion, theater, architecture, studies art, literature and music of India and Japan. Holistic life style and medicine is among her passions which is why she returned to academia and in 2009 graduated at the IIN (Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York) with degree in holistic medicine and nutrition.


She writes and records music for films and documentaries has produced original music for Pop Tech, is currently working on her new album and concert tour and collaboration projects in Europe for 2015, 2016. Her new CD just came out this past June and this time it`s an intricate kaleidoscope of her lifelong passion of languages cultures and history - a CD “Kur Nakties Lelijos žydi” (released on label   Nieko Rimto), of lullabies in Japanese, Norwegian, English, Lithuanian and Estonian. Original music and lyrics by Gintare.
