As Rockyoke came to an end Gary proceeded to take on another project and became the musical director of "Live Lounge Duo', Gary's passion for acoustic guitar helped form the unique style and quickly put Live Longe Duo on the map! When Gary is not playing live, Gary is still very busy as a session guitarist, working in studios alongside producers across the UK & overseas. Gary also spends his time teaching guitar to students in and around Manchester. His many years of working with a variety of artists and producers in the industry have enabled him to be well versed in many different styles of playing.
