Personnel

Gary Nock - Singer/Guitarist

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.
Another more recent song of Gary's ‘These City Steets’ was featured on the Movie Soundtrack Album for Warners British Film, starring Idriss Elba, ‘100 Streets’, in which he also played a short cameo role. 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.

"I'm so glad that Gary was able to play at my event! He played music that everyone (of different ages) enjoyed. Each song was played and sung perfectly, with feeling. He is very friendly and made everyone feel at ease. Lots of my guests asked how we had found him and for his card as he is so good. I would wholeheartedly recommend him!"

"Gary came and performed for us at our Valentines Day afternoon tea this week and we couldn't have asked for better entertainment. We have a wide age range of service users which can be challenging to cater for but Gary played hits across the decades that suited all and everyone had a great afternoon. The feedback from our service users and staff has been excellent! In the lead up to the event Gary was very responsive and helpful with regards to a few issues we had our end. A pleasure to work with, we look forward to welcoming him back in the future!"

"If your looking for someone to get your party started, then Gary is definitely the man for the job! His professionalism was second to none, after having all the stresses of arranging a surprise 50th for my husband , then came the snow! he came all the way from a previous gig in Exeter to our party in Kent to ensure he wouldn’t let us down, he even arranged a back up for us should the snow beat him , but he made it in good time! His communication was excellent and always replied quickly. His voice and performance were amazing. I asked for a couple of personal songs that meant a lot to us and he delivered on those too. 100% would book again you won’t be disappointed! Thank you Gary xx"

"If your like me, came across this website and never heard of it and not sure what to make of it well I have to tell you, I went ahead and booked Gary for my wedding. I loved his YouTube videos and the songs he covered and it was exactly what we were looking for. I read the reviews and went with it.... We really were not disappointed, Gary was an absolute dream from start to finish. From booking him, through to telling him what we like, to him turning up and playing was 5 star all the way. I can not recommend this guy highly enough. Our 150 guests were on their feet for the whole 2 hours, this is a guy who only stopped for a quick drink and carried straight on. He arrived in plenty of time to set up, was so polite to everyone and really did get the guests on their feet. A lovely, extremely talented guy who made our wedding just perfect :)"

Would book him again in a heart beat"
