With a mixture of catchy pop, rock, heart felt melodies, and tingle in your stomach pop songs, Gary Pearson is an independent Australian recording artist and his music comes across with all the texture of a seasoned veteran. Gold Coast, Australia is his home and his first international album ("Panaphobia" through Zip Records in San Francisco) was a culmination of 7 years of hard work. Prior to jumping out of aeroplanes as a Captain in the Australian army, Gary grew up in the tropical soundings of Papua, New Guinea, and his songwriter talents have won him considerable followings on the Gold Coast, Melbourne, Darwin and Canberra. Gary Pearson's music occupies that territory on the music spectrum which lies between the sounds of U2, Matchbox 20 and the drive of Pearl Jam. We like to call it “happy-boy grunge”. If ever there was a mixed marriage of U.S. top forty and Australian rock/pop ......Gary's new album 'Black Dog' is it! Gary's music is recommended for those looking for something new, original and heretofore unavailable outside Australia.
