“Gary, “I’ve known Gary a long time, and I’ve watched him grow. Older and wiser now he’s become a truly major league songwriter. Straight ahead, honest, from the heart, lyrics and a dynamic melodic sense. And guitar? Come on. Romping blues, country, cool jazz, rock, gospel he can do it all. And with fire. On top of that, he’s a fantastic singer. He’s really got it all, including vast experience. I love this guy.” DW”- (Dennis Walker -Producer for BB King, Robert Cray, Phillip Walker, Lowell Fulson).
