It was that first stage experience that convinced him that performing is what he wanted to do for the rest of my life. HeI started writing original songs in college and would sing in front of anyone who would listen. Fortunately for him, he lived in one of the best party houses in Denton so there were often large crowds around on the weekends to soothe his performance bug. People liked what he was doing so that added fuel to his fire.
After six years of college and a degree from The University of North Texas (no he's not a doctor), Gary was ready to make music my full time job. Since graduating, Gary has been playing in Honky Tonks and dancehalls all over Texas, Okalahoma, and Arkansas with my "No Standards Band. From ballads about lost love to nights out on the town with the boys, his musical style is as diverse as the lyrics that accompany it. He owe's his diversity to having five brothers and sisters, all older that had very different tastes in music.
As a kid he listened to Jerry Jeff Walker, Willie Nelson, Kenny Rogers, Kiss, The Cars and his two "favorites", Billy Idol and Motley Crue. Later, in high school, he was inspired by Alabama, the original CCR, Steve Miller Band, Lynard Skynard, Robert Earl Keen, Don Williams, and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Gary's music is country with some southern rock and a twist of whatever else you might hear in there. All in all I think it's a mix of some feel good, make you cry, wanna dance, good-time music.
