Scottish born Gary combines all the traditional aspects of folk with his own unique freshness and tenderness. Now based in Leeds, the Perthshire boy caught the attention and imagination of traditional and modern music lovers up and down the U.K with the release of his Debut Album, “Boy Cries Wolf” (featuring performances from Ellen Smith (Ellen and the Escapades) and Rosie Doonan (Radio 2 Folk Award nominee/Rosie Doonan + Ben Murray/Peter Gabriel). The album picked up support from R2 and Maverick as well as radio 2’s Steve Lamacq.
The Scottish songsmith is influenced by the singer/songwriters of the ’60s including James Taylor, Carole King, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and most predominantly, Paul Simon. Stewart also cites Scottish Nu-Folkies as an influence, including King Creosote, James Yorkston, Admiral Fallow and Rachel Sermanni to name a few.
When Gary is not playing his own music he can be found playing bass for fellow Leeds Folk/Pop quintet Ellen and the Escapades,drums for Yorkshire’s answer to the E-Street Band Hope & Social and guitar for Wakefield-born singer/songwriter Rosie Doonan.
