Rock / Alternative / Progressive
Gary is an internationally recognised songwriter and guitarist. A recent success came in late 2013 when ‘It All Comes Down To This’ was top-listed by US TV producers for placement in major sports television programming and video games.
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.
Gary has recently teamed up with producer Waynne Smart (The Family Rain, Universal) on a new project 'Hi Fi Infidels' described as 'where Arctic Monkeys & Queens Of The Stone Age meet'. Another active project is instrumental riff-rockers Flux Velociraptor who are releasing their debut EP on iTunes later in the year, again produced by Waynne.
Gary learned his trade within underground & alternative rock music movements in Scotland writing and performing in bands at a grassroots level.
His music has reached the finals of the UK Songwriting competition on more than one occasion, has many times been the subject of national radio play & live sessions and increasingly his material is becoming more and more sought after.
Listen to 'Billy Everyteen' below and 'It All Comes Down To This' to the right:
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.'
