Gary Ng is from Carlsbad, USA, and grew up listening to the great rock and pop songs of the 60's. As a kid he was never without a transistor radio to his ear. But then came disco in the 70's, techno in the 80's, rap in the 90's, and enough was enough! After threatening that he could write songs better than what was on the radio, he started writing - and recording - on his home PC. He play all the instruments, and sings all the vocals. The rest, as they say, is history.
Listen to his songs and you'll hear a bit of the Beatles, a bit of the Beach Boys, and a lot of 60's influence. Melodies, harmonies, and guitars. What more could you want?
Quote from him:
"On Valentines Day 2003 my wife surprised me with some Cakewalk recording software. I looked around and saw that I had a ton of guitars just lying around. So I set off on a goal to write 12 songs and release my own CD. I had never written a complete song before, never sang into a mic before, never recorded music before. Basically, I had no clue what I was doing. But the songs, good and bad, kept popping into my head and 14 songs and 9 months later, I finally have enough songs to release my first CD "Nobody's Perfect". Listening to that CD now, man, it's really rough in spots, but some great songs - Old Surfers Rule still rocks in an analog sort of way, and Life in an SUV is still one of my favorites to play live."
The Beatles. The Beach Boys. The Monkees. The Turtles. CSN. Marshall Crenshaw. The Jayhawks and the whole alt-country thing.
