Connoisseur Sandy Roberton, who produced the first three albums of the era-defining folk band Steeley Span, recognized that Gildor's music is ageless and has a modern sound that draws inspiration from the 1970s. In 2022, Roberton remarked, "It touched me so much, and I offered him a deal right away,"

In the fall of 2021, he joined forces with Beverly Martel Music and worked with Isabel Gracefield (Adele, Sam Smith, etc.) to record his debut album at RAK Studios in London. However, it wasn't certain whether Gildor's debut album, Silent River, would ever be released. Sandy Roberton of Beverly Martel Music, a British record executive, had been working with Gildor for a few years before Roberton passed away in the summer of 2022. After months of negotiations, nevertheless, there was some brighter news: Polymoon Music would release the album Silent River in 2023. The record gained wide-spread acclaim and reached a wide audience, featuring in major editorial playlists like Spotify's ' 't Koffie Huis ' and he played songs of his albums live on Dutch Radio 1 & Radio 2. In 2024, Gildor starts a new release-run, working towards the release of his second album: Long Way Round.
