Keith Greentree played "First Glance" on BBC Radio Norfolk on Sat Aug 27, 2016 (BBC Page) saying "this is great song by Gary Quinn written and sung by him, a great guy...I am so loving that, what a great British artist, brilliant live"

Having received praise and an array of awards for his eponymous debut album, Gary teased the release of his new body of work with the single 'Shame', that was preimiered by The Boot earlier this year. A mid-tempo, traditional-sounding track with a prominent drum beat, 'Shame' sets the tone for the most personally insightful release from the multi-award winner.

A native of Northern Ireland, Quinn cites U.S. country artists such as Brad Paisley, Hal Ketchum and more as influences, while he has shared the stage with acts such as Kristian Bush, Clint Black and songwriter Bob DiPiero.

Having garnered support international praise for 'Shame', Gary is excited to finally unveil his long-awaited EP. Of the project he states,

I’ve gone for the EP title of ‘I Remember’ as I feel that it wraps up the feel of the EP pretty well. It’s a very personal project and the tracks cover different times in my own life though to now, so it’s almost a reflective piece of work. ‘I Remember’ also comes from a line in ‘Each Night You Lie’ which features on the EP.”

It’s an EP that I’m really proud of, both to have had the experiences to write about and the quality that producer Thomm Jutz and my co-writers David C Banning and Nick Nichols have brought to the songs. One of my favourites on the EP is ‘Body Language’ as it’s just a little bit fun but equally I love ‘The Best Man Won’, but folk will just have to listen to find out why.”

As heads out on the road next week with Luke & Mel, fans had a chance to hear the EP first hand and learn more about the story behind the songs.
