Born in Walsall in the West Midlands but brought up in Dawlish, Devon, Gary started out touring the local pubs playing covers before finally deciding to export his very own brand of confessional, Ryan Adams/Tracy Chapman- influenced contemporary folk to Birmingham, London and Bristol where he is currently gigging extensively and picking up a loyal following from across the board.
With an emotive combination of effortless song writing and an elegiac voice that drifts between breathy falsetto and soaring builds, there are elements reminiscent of an early Chris Martin. A shy but charismatic, ever-present performer means live shows never fail to be thoroughly engaging.
Gary has recently had a couple of songs on TV, firstly his song Sunlight is behind the latest Arla campaign all across Europe, he also has his song Make It Better featured on the new Mars Ad.
Both tracks are available on iTunes now. Gary is currently rehearsing and playing little acoustic shows around London in preparation for a major tour of the UK and Europe later this year.
