Hi guys, my name is Gary Stockton. I am a guitar player who likes to write his own songs. I record my stuff mostly at home using a ProTools/Ableton Live setup. I like to keep it simple, first laying down a percussive track and working the song into a full blown recording. I write acoustic songs mostly. My influences are The Who, Van Morrison, The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, anything richly melodic and soulful.
I find the music of today repetitive, predictable and dull, with a few rare exceptions. I don’t understand rap, I don’t really think its music, it is more of a poetic art form. I can listen to Quadrophenia over and over and never tire of its brilliance.
When I have a little more time, I will be posting some of my songs here for your listening pleasure.
