ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Gary Sellers
Guitarist, Singer, Songwriter, Bandleader

Gary Sellers wasn't born with a guitar in his hand, but you'd never know it. His smooth riffs and heartfelt licks drip with emotion that pours straight from his soul to his fingers.

While he always loved music, it wasn't until Gary turned 17 that he picked up a guitar. Soon after, he discovered the Long Island blues scene. Gary frequented local clubs with his black-and-white marble notebook in hand, always jotting down song ideas and things he'd learned from watching the different bands play. The "boy with the book" caught the eye of Long Island Blues legend Sam Taylor, who would eventually become his mentor.

He followed the Sam Taylor Band closely before signing on as its regular guitarist and adding his soulful voice on background vocals. Taylor guided his growth as a musician and even helped him to craft a few of the tunes on his debut album, "Young Man with the Blues."

Gary's youthful appearance belies his musical maturity. His songs ring true with passion and grit, conveying universal emotions. He writes of love and loss, funneling pain and yearning through the healing groove of his melodies. Make no mistake, he may have some battle scars from romantic entanglements, but he's still standing, and he's still jamming. Gary pays homage to the blues greats, but weaves hints of funk, jazz, rock and R&B into his work to create his own unique vibe. According to Good Times Magazine, Gary's "tunes are surprisingly sophisticated... [and] his guitar playing is a fine mixture of mechanics and feel. In short, the Cat can play!"

And play he has. For the past 10 years, Gary has toured much of the East Coast, performing at countless clubs and festivals with his own band as well as the Sam Taylor Band. He has shared the stage with blues legends like Gary "US" Bonds, Debbie Davies, Frank Bey, Maxine Brown and Little Buster. Sellers' unmistakable guitar, harmonica and vocals can be heard on numerous recordings, including "Paula Jean's Christmas Blues Album, Volume 2," Pat Hunter's "Life Lessons" and Taylor's "Voice of the Blues." He also has appeared on television, playing a band member on American Movie Classics' reality show, "Into Character," and performing with various bands on LT1.

Gary defies expectations. He doesn't fit the stereotype of a blues man, but he is a worthy inheritor to the tradition - he's got the heart and the chops to carry the torch for a new generation.

An amazing first album- Gary Sellers writes and sings the blues like a veteran. With tracks like #7 "Those lonely Blues", the blues are back in a big way. Sellers and long time mentor Sam Taylor shine with tracks like "Table for One". He's bringing the blues back to Long Island with heart and soul. You won't regret picking this album up.

Gary's songs show that his influences are varied but the most notable are his R&B roots as heard in the uptempo tracks of his CD. his blues are mostly evident in the slower numbers where his guitar playing style comes to fore. no fancy 'fast fingers' stuff here. there was no need for that. just straightforward and heartfelt licks. the notes are all in the right places. Listen to Gary sing. feel every note that comes out from his guitar. this young man has the blues.
