Before the advent of today's digital recording technology, this songwriter/musician got a decidedly lowbrow start in the music business. "When I was just a little kid, three years old, we got a piano. A couple of neighbors dropped off an old upright piano in exchange for a few cans of beer. I took piano lessons for about 3 weeks, that was all the piano teacher could take. I couldn't get through a single piece of music that my teacher gave me because I would improvise as I went. I'd get one or two minutes into a piece and then I'd just go off and start making things up."
Gary is a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) and is an eight-time ASCAP award-winner. His piece 'Behind the Door' was nominated for best instrumental song for 2010 and again in 2012 for 'Damned Yankee' by Hollywood Music in Media. He is also a voting member of The National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (NARAS).
