Gary Tipping-artist review

"With a light and airy falsetto vocal style, Gary Tipping, is standing on the forefront of musical mastery. This independent artist from the United Kingdom is far from elementary when it comes to his music styling.



Gary is a self-taught musician that has natural talent. His guitar and keyboard is the playground in which his esoteric lyrics find a home. This soulful singer has an innate ability to connect with his listener through the leaps and bounds of ballads. With…

“For those music fans who enjoy the songs of Paul Simon, Cat Stevens and James Taylor then look out for British singer/songwriter Gary Tipping. He has a unique way of touching the heart and soul of a listener with his soft vocal style and emotive song writing. This is folk/pop at its best.”

Gary Tipping-artist review

“Gary Tipping is a British singer/songwriter and an independent music artist who writes and produces his own songs and music videos. His folk/acoustic songs are as personal and intimate as a John Lennon song and sung in the easy listening style of a Paul Simon song. During 2009 he won several awards for his singing, song writing and music video production and he rightly deserves this international recognition.”

“This is a unique compilation video that showcases Gary's talents quite admirably as an emotive singer, songwriter, guitarist and performer. Song extracts are well set, and helps communicate the over-all feel of Gary's music and personable style. With excellent sound quality, and some insightful camera work, this video serves as an excellent example to all artists about the power and possibilities that a promo video can offer.”
