Producer, musician, singer, published songwriter and seasoned performing artist, Gary has toured the world several times over with various Live projects and written songs now well known across the world. Gary’s debut album 'The Life We Learned To Live' was released in 2011 and three of the songs were featured on huge TV Ad Campaigns for Mars, Arla and Microsoft.

in 2013 Gary co-produced and provided Backing Vocals on the song 'The Rage That's In Us All' that was sung by Bo Bruce and written by JJ Abrams and Snow Patrols Gary Lightbody and featured in the 'Star Trek: Into Darkness' Movie.
In 2017 ‘These City Steets’ was featured on the Movie Soundtrack Album for Warners British Film, starring Idriss Elba, ‘100 Streets’, in which Gary played a short cameo role (see if you can spot him if you watch the film!).
In March this year (2019) another song of Gary's called 'Whats A Song', which Gary wrote with singer Joel Baker, was released on Virgin EMI in March 2019, is picking up Radio play worldwide and has received critical acclaim.

You can download all of Garys Music on iTunes or stream on Spotify. A producer and songwriter by day, published by legendary band Snow Patrols Publishing Company - 'Polar Patrol (now Polar Spirit B-Unique)’. Gary has worked with some of the Countries brightest up and coming artists including Jamie Lawson & Dagny amongst many others as well as many established acts.

A live performer by night, Gary goes out armed with an Acoustic Guitar, Microphone and Fishman SA220 Solo Amp and performs a mix of originals, including the songs featured on TV Ads, and covers varying from 60s through to Modern Day, from The Beatles & The Kinks to Ed Sheeran & James Bay and everything in between.

Gary began his troubadour journey at the advanced age of 17, learning from songbooks, determined to capture whatever it is a classic songwriter has under their fingertips.

Within a couple of years he was playing around the bars in Devon where he'd grown up.

A while after his own material began pouring out, he moved back to the West Midlands - his birthplace - and started touring.

From these humble beginnings he's since shared the stage with many great contemporaries including Jamie Lawson, Ed Harcourt & Newton Faulkner to name but a few, as well writing and recording with some amazing songwriters and producers.

Gary went on to sign a publishing deal with P and P Songs in 2007 and after 3 years of working together the relationship ended and Gary moved on alone, working hard, writing and recording with all sorts of artists across many genres.

Gary managed to pick up his 3 Major Synchs on TV Adverts in the following year with Mars (UK and Ireland), Arla (Pan-European) and Microsoft (Worldwide) all choosing Gary's songs for their campaigns.

Now working under the Polar Spirit B-Unique banner, Gary continues his songwriting and performing throughout the world.

Gary has an amazing voice! He arrived early, had great communication throughout, even in the pandemic where we had to change the venue 3 times! . The hen who we arranged it for loved the music and we all danced all night long! Thank you Gary!

We booked Gary Nock for a special Fathers Day surprise and cannot recommend him highly enough, he is a hugely talented musician and listening to Gary perform added a very special touch to the day.

The booking process through Poptop UK was simple and we were able to direct message Gary to make arrangements for the event and make a special song request for our Dad which Gary included in his set and absolutely smashed it!

Gary was the consummate professional with a relaxed and friendly manner he quietly set up his acoustic guitar and then wowed our family with his vocals and guitar rifts while we relaxed and danced together. It was uplifting to be entertained by a live musician and if you are deliberating over "should I spend the money on a live musician?" YES! Gary was worth every penny.

We were final able to have Gary play for us at our wedding last week after postponing twice from May 2020 due to Covid-19. Gary was flexible and accomodating throughout, and agreed to play a set for us in Hertfordshire before travelling across the country to another gig, which we are highly appreciative of!

Unfortunately on the day the timings didn't quite go to plan, through no fault of Gary's, but he was again flexible and accomodating. Our guests loved his set and he is extremely talented! We would definitly recommend Gary for other people's events.
