Rock / Alternative / Progressive
Gary is an internationally recognised songwriter and guitarist who learned his trade within underground & alternative rock music movements in Scotland, writing and performing in bands at a grassroots level. He took his early projects Nine Miles High & Tabasco Fiasco from the unsigned circuits to major festival slots, he earned national radio play and self-released various EPs which gained critical acclaim in local and national press. (See press below).
A recent success came in late 2013 when ‘It All Comes Down To This’ (listen, right) was top-listed by US TV producers for placement in major sports television programming and video games.
Then in March 2014 Gary signed a licensing contract with Pulse Records USA to allow TNT/Turner television producers to use the song. In addition to this Gary has other songs currently in the music licensing pitching process, as well as new material in production.
More recently Gary has teamed up with producer Sean Tuohy (The Cookie Palace) on the debut release from his new band, instrumental riff-rockers Flux Velociraptor. The relese is expected in 2015 and eagerly anticipated by many.
You can browse Gary’s back catalogue of material on his Bandcamp page and below listen to a new song ‘Luca’ which was written for his baby boy and his friend.
Is This Music? on 'Tabasco Fiasco One EP'
‘Lightning Bolt, QOTSA and Shellac are some of the multiple influences present. They’re developing their own sound from this and chucking in some very listenable tunes to boot’
The Skinny on 'Tabasco Fiasco One EP'
‘This EP also succeeds in striking a perfect balance between instrumental prowess and astute songwriting and makes for a compelling taster of things to come’
The List on ‘Tabasco Fiasco One EP'
'The five tracks bring to mind everyone from Fugazi to Mansun, The Mars Volta to Bad Brains. It’s all expertly executed, and they manage to stay just the right side of self-indulgence.'
