About

                                 BIOGRAPHICAL - Gary Procyshyn  2021
 

GARY WAS BORN INTO A MUSICAL FAMILY AND HAS GROWN FROM AN ASPIRING FUSION GUITAR PLAYER (COMBINING JEFF BECK, EDDY VAN HALEN AND ERIC CLAPTON) AND HAS EMERGED AS A GENUINE SINGER/SONGWRITER/GUITAR PLAYER.

HIS SONGS ARE STORYTELLER REALISM WITH STRONG METAPHORS AND LUSH MELODIC HARMONIES AND HIS INCREDIBLE TECHNICAL ABILITIES ON THE GUITAR ARE CLEVERLY HIDDEN WITHIN THE SONGS WITH FEEL AND PASSION.

HE WAS AWARDED THE LENNY BREAU MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP TO MUSICIANS INSTITUTE IN LA TO ATTEND A FULL YEAR AT GIT. THE AWARD CAME FROM GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE AND MUSICIANS INSTITUTE AND WAS FULL TUITION TO STUDY WITH MANY GREATS IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY.

HE PLAYED ORIGINAL MUSIC IN TORONTO AFTER GRADUATING FROM GIT AND MOVED BACK TO WINNIPEG TO FOCUS ON HIS SOLO CAREER AS A SINGER SONGWRITER / GUITAR PLAYER / PRODUCER.

HE RECORDED HIS 1ST SINGER SONGWRITER CD "ONLY IF YOU'RE LISTENING" AND RECEIVED AN HONORABLE MENTION IN THE BILLBOARD WORLD SONG CONTEST AND AN HONORABLE MENTION IN THE INTERNATIONAL SONGWRITING COMPETITION IN LONDON ENGLAND FOR HIS SONG "LIKE A STONE". HIS VOCAL ABILITIES AND POTENTIAL AS A SONGWRITER WON PRAISE FROM LOCAL PRODUCER CHRIS BURKE-GAFFNEY ( CBG ARTIST DEVELOPMENT) AND NASHVILLE SONG PLUGGER SHERRIL BLACKMAN.

"21 DAYS" KICKED OFF THE WRITING FOR HIS 2012 RELEASE "IN THE TIME THAT MATTERS" AND WON RUNNER UP IN THE OPEN/AOG CATEGORY OF THE INTERNATIONAL ACOUSTIC MUSIC AWARDS AND APPEARS ON VOLUME 6 OF THEIR GLOBAL COMPILATION CD. HIS VOCALS HAVE MATURED WITH HEART FELT UNIQUENESS AND DEPTH WITHOUT THE AID OF AUTO TUNE AND THE SOUL OF HIS MUSIC IS DIVERSE. THE NEW SONGS ARE BEAUTIFULLY COMPLIMENTED BY HIS OUTSTANDING GUITAR ABILITIES.

THE ALBUM IS AN ACOUSTIC ADVENTURE IN STYLE DIVERSITY WITH GUEST ARTISTS ENRICHING THE SONGS WITH FURTHER DEPTH. GARY'S GROWTH AS A SINGER SONGWRITER / GUITAR PLAYER / PRODUCER AND ENGINEER CAUGHT THE ATTENTION ONCE AGAIN OF CHRIS BURKE-GAFFNEY. CHRIS AND CANADIAN PRODUCER OF THE YEAR ARUN CHATURVEDI MIXED THE RELEASE WHICH IS RICH IN MATERIAL FOR FILM/TV.

HIS SONG "DAUPHIN COUNTRYFEST" WAS FEATURED IN THE DOCUMENTARY "COUNTRYFEST" ALONG WITH A CLIP OF HIM PERFORMING THE SONG UNPLUGGED IN HIS HOME STUDIO.

GARY IS CURRENTLY WRITING AND RECORDING HIS NEXT ALBUM. IT WILL BE A VOCAL / GUITAR VENTURE WITH HIS MELODIC LEAD GUITAR PLAYING AND GRITTY VOCALS AS THE HILIGHT. HE WILL CONTINUE TO PLAY LIVE AND PURSUE CO-WRITING WHILE PRESENTING HIS SONGS FOR PUBLISHING AND FILM/TV.


" garyP is a superb emotional vocalist with a unique melodic approach and is also a phenomenal guitar player with an exceptional gift for improvisation. His songwriting is very unique and shines with true real life lyrics as well as humourus colorful metaphors. His upcoming album will showcase Gary's talents on electric and acoustic lead guitar but the forefront of his music remains in his heartfelt vocals and very original songwriting."
