~Cary Floyd Then~
CARY FLOYD comes from a long line of musicians. Lucky Floyd, Cary's father, was the man and drummer for "The Fabulous Sparkles" and "Red Wilder Blue". This is not only where Cary developed his passion and knowledge for music, but a fierce competitive spirit as well.
Cary finished his formal music education at The University of North Texas. The real education started for Cary at age 19 when he hit the road around the world with Gary P. Nunn (Singer-songwriter for Jerry Jeff Walker) as a drummer and background vocalists. During his travels he played with Junior Brown and Eric Hoakenan while developing his song-writing skills from Junior and Gary.
Cary Floyd has had extensive studio and stage experience through the years. His first writing venture wound up on national rotation on most top-forty stations as well as heavy rotation and promotion by mainstream DJ "Red Beard" on Q102, Dallas, Texas. His band Tinman headlined all of the major tours that performed in Dallas. The musicians that toured and recorded with Cary;
Keith Carlock of: Steely Dan and now Sting
Jim Bogios of: Sheryl Crow and now Counting Crows
Andy Timmons of: Simon Phillips and Danger Danger
~Cary Floyd Now~
Cary Floyd has recorded over a hundred songs, all on CD, that have a full range of style and talent that has covered many musical genres. He still headlines "The Viper Room" and "The Mint", but has recently shifted gears back to the studio. Never fully satisfied with other projects, Cary has focused on a new path. With a hunger to be true to his roots, Cary has begun his first solo project. With the help of Stacy Heydon (award winning producer), Cary has put together a new EP of songs on a CD titled, Southern Engineering. You will find that this is his best work to date and a must have record. As you also will find with the enclosed letter from Don Was on his website: www.caryfloyd.com , we are not the only one who thinks he is great.
