A native to Jacksonville, Florida; Gary was raised in Miami, Florida.
His family is deep in musical talent. At age 12, he took an interest in learning to play the guitar. Although he was raised in a Christian Family, he had the opportunity to be exposed to a diverse group of artists, from Motown to The Beatles; The Mama's & The Papas; Neil Diamond; to Strauss and Mozart. This led to a strong interest to write his own songs with artists such as; Aerosmith, the Beatles and Buddy Holly being major influences. It was at age 14 when He played his first "gigs" in Miami! In the mid 80's, Gary moved to Nashville where he formed the rock band, "Atticus Finch". The band gained success and notoriety via local Nashville radio stations and extensive live performances.
