Founding member of We Are Kin Gary hails from Swindon and started playing drums at the age of 8. He co-ran an independent music label organising gigs and interviews until realising he had a passion for sound engineering and started working on local radio. With a perfect face for radio, so perfect that he doesn’t even talk – he has sat behind the mixing desk professionally and for fun for over 10 years.
Taking huge inspiration from 80’s Genesis and Pink Floyd he turned his attention to the huge soundscapes that the era delivered with the incredible sound production and musical acrobatics that it entailed. Finding his songwriting partner in Dan Zambas he has to this day put up with the incessant nagging with the promise of music that will fulfill his drumming and recording desires.
Now that the band has evolved beyond its initial duo, Gary has solidified his place as the backbone of this band bringing any flights of fancy crashing down to a reality so efficient it would make a CEO jealous of the results.
