Gerrybhoy has been impressing us all with his bittersweet songwriting style for some time now. He’s mostly been a recording artist only up to a year or two back, but tells us he’s keen to develop his live performances. We think he’s actually pretty damn good at it already.
IN HIS OWN WORDS:
Singerysongwritery type individual, a natural born weegieburger and lover of black country dogs.
Over the recent past my focus has been on writing and recording songs for participation in web based songwriting activities, such as:
50/90, write 50 song in a ninety day period, completed once
FAWM, February Album Writing Month, write 14 songs, completed twice, I think?
NASOALMO, National Solo Album Writing Month, write 40 plus minutes of solo work, completed once.
As a result of this work I recieved a very kind invitation to play Edinburgh Unlimited which turned my attention to thinking about playing live.
This resulted in playing spots at the Blue Blazer my favoured open mic night in order to prepare for the Edinburgh Unlimited Gig, which in turn led to a feature spot at the Blue Blazer.
I have over 100 original songs posted on Soundcloud with the help of some wonderfully talented collaborators.
To date I have considered myself as a bit of a virtual singer songwriter given my entire collection work is done in a studio and the audience web based.
Think it’s time to try out the real world, I don’t know where it’s going but I will know when I get there :)
