|Origin||London, United Kingdom|
His debut album "Gary Go" was released in 2009, spawning the hit single "Wonderful". The same year, Lady Gaga referred to Gary Go as "my favourite new artist this year" after performing a rendition of "Just Dance", inspired by his cover of the song.
Gary Go went on to collaborate with electro pioneer and Grammy Award winning DJ Benny Benassi, writing and performing three consecutive #1 club records. The club crossover hit "Cinema", rose rapidly to #1 on the US Billboard and UK Club Charts. "Cinema" was awarded a Grammy Award through the remix by electronic music producer Skrillex. Artist and producer Kanye West referred to the remix as "one of the greatest works of art ever made".
In 2012, Gary Go released "Now Was Once The Future", a videotape and original soundtrack. The intimate short-film, written and directed by Gary Go, chronicles the end of a relationship and a journey of self-rediscovery.
"Crying Sound" was released January 2015 via a lyric video on YouTube, where Gary's personal phone number was featured, inviting viewers to call him with the answer to the question "What stops your crying sound?".
Gary Go has also written and produced songs released by artists including Rihanna, Robbie Williams, Take That, Steve Angello, Ruby Rose, Kylie Minogue, Simply Red, The 2 Bears, Ronan Keating, Joseph Arthur, Katharine McPhee, Carina Round, Laleh and Juliette Lewis.
Twitter & iPhoneEdit
Gary Go has gained publicity and media attention for his use of technology and social media tools. He successfully used Twitter as a tool for collaborative songwriting, and has written songs and performed via the iPhone.
The track "The Heart Balloon" was conceived on the iPhone after uploading an image of a heart-shaped balloon entangled with a tree. Go then asked his Twitter followers to send in lyric suggestions. The track was given away as a download to raise money and awareness for the British Heart Foundation with all proceeds going to the charity.
"My First Twook"Edit
In December 2011, Gary Go released his literary debut "My First Twook" – an illustrated collection of musings from his Twitter feed.
The book contains over 100 tweeted thoughts from the Twitter feed of Gary Go, that were colourfully brought to life in illustrations by designer Flo Chaplin. The foreword reads: "These are random thoughts, observations, musings. With an analogue heart, I wanted to bring some of these thoughts into the real world. Why not? What if the internet gets deleted!?"
Limited edition copies of the book were given as a gift to artists performing at MTV Europe Music Awards in 2011.
