Garry said: “2018 has had a great start for me with upcoming gigs such as The Studio in Widnes, Focus Wales, Wrexham Street Festival and many more in the pipeline.

“I’ve been playing a lot of local pub gigs at the beginning of the year and I’m currently writing my EP which will be out in May and is called Glow.

“Music is a true passion for me and I'm always on the look out for any opportunity.”
