About Gary

Gary started playing music at the age of 13, by the time he was 15 he was a professional musician, playing bass guitar with the Jack Steed ballroom dance band. Although playing foxtrots, sambas, waltzes and other ballroom dances wasn't his favourite thing, it gave Gary the dicipline required to get on in the music trade.

Gary lived in Germay for seven years and Cyprus for 3 years where he played with various rock bands, an Irish music band and cover bands on the tourist strips in Cyprus.

Gary composes music for corporate videos, bloggers, vloggers (or anyone who wants backing music), he also writes backing tracks for other artists and "play alongs" for music students to practice playing in a band situation. He still loves to play in live bands.
