Gary Quinn is a singer-songwriter that knows how to pull on the heartstrings of his audiences. Creating beautifully crafted lyrics he draws you in with his acoustic driven performances of rock infused country balanced with traditional melancholic undercurrents. Quinn’s heart-filled songs cover contrasting subjects from the up-tempo ‘Live Each Day’ to the moody love song ‘He Don’t Show Her Anymore’.
Born and raised in Ireland Quinn listened to his father’s Kris Kristofferson tapes and then fell in love with the new country music coming out of America after hearing the Garth Brooks album ‘No Fences’ in the early 1990’s.
After releasing a five-track CD, Quinn’s songs have been heard on radio stations in his native Ireland, UK, America and Australia. He has opened for top touring US country artists and appeared at several prestigious music festivals in Ireland and the UK.
The latest single from Quinn entitled ‘Festive Moonshine' is his forst Christmas single and set for release mid November 2012. It's an uptempo track that hopes to offer an alternative to X-Factor winners or endless Christmas covers that come out around this time of year.
Quinn's 'He Don't Show Her Anymore' received the runner-up accolade in the Belfast Nashville Songwriters Festival International Song Writing Competition 2010. He performed at the festival in 2010 and 2011 and is on the bill for 2012.
The first fruits from teaming up with the influential production house can be heard on a previous release ‘Tin Man’, written by hit songwriters Phil Haywood and Caine Ward and featuring Gary’s distinctive vocals, which gained acclaim from fans and industry insiders alike. New tracks for Quinn’s debut album are currently in production.
