Out of New England, a new(ish) contributor to the Indie Folk genre is sharing his sound and making an impact. Singer/songwriter Gary DeMichele delivers an authenticity and lyricism in his recordings, highlighting a soulful voice and passionate artist’s heart honed through the seasons of a life well-lived.
Music has been calling Gary since childhood. But it wasn’t until he picked up an acoustic guitar as a college student that the seemingly mystical world of songwriting was unveiled, hooking him with its power to tell stories, heal pain, and transcend the here and now. The muse stayed with him for several years, inspiring a prolific phase of creation.
As it has done for so many artists, however, life took him in a few other directions – house painter, film editor, husband and father. Gary tucked music away for many years but the call only got stronger. He finally answered.
In 2013, he committed to his “52 in 52” project, through which he wrote, recorded, and released a new song every week for a year. The period since has been a fruitful one: Gary has been writing hundreds of songs, both alone and with others, taking inspiration from such celebrated songwriters as Josh Ritter, Brandi Carlile and Gregory Alan Isakov.
Now, after years of amassing a heartfelt and lyrical body of work, Gary is putting his unique sound – and his authentic self – out there for others to enjoy. He is thrilled to see fans worldwide connecting with his music.
