Over the course of his 40-year career which began in the UK with the rock band Spooky Tooth, Gary has played before millions of fans and his music has appeared in blockbuster movies & TV shows as well as being played on radio every day. His worldwide hits including ‘Dream Weaver,’ ‘Love Is Alive,’ and ‘Really Wanna Know You,’ have inspired generations of mainstream artists such as Eminem, Mya, Jay-Z, and Kanye West who have sampled or covered his songs. Gary joined Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band and performed on 4 world tours from 2008 through 2011.

He released nineteen studio albums between 1967 and 2008 and continues to tour extensively around the US and Europe. He is perhaps best known for his hits “Year of the Cat” from the platinum album of the same name and his platinum follow up release “Time Passages” and “On the Border.”. His career spans four decades as a key figure in British music.
