This show is about me - and my guests of course - over my first 12 weeks as a broadcaster/interviewer and the last two years since I first put my toes in the waters of the internet. I had no experience for either before I plunged in!
Such a lot to learn in both respects; a lot of very hard work and most of all determination and persistence; but always the driving force was the music.

On Sunday I went to see the Adrian Belew Power Trio. The gig was amazing - incredible trio - Julie Slick is a brilliant bass player. They did a load of Crimson stuff Dinosaur, Three Of A Perfect Pair, Indiscipline - loads. They played the majority of the power trios's new record - the title track was a real highlight - interesting to see Adrian doing loops and all his FX run off a laptop. I have since found out from Steve Lawson that he was using Mobius running on his laptop for loops. It was… Continue

“For those music fans who enjoy the songs of Paul Simon, Cat Stevens and James Taylor then look out for British singer/songwriter Gary Tipping. He has a unique way of touching the heart and soul of a listener with his soft vocal style and emotive song writing. This is folk/pop at its best.”

“Gary Tipping’s songs have been favorably compared to the likes of John Lennon and Paul Simon in their composition, and his gentle emotional delivery is both honest and refreshing. His music video productions have won him several awards and clearly show a very talented music artist.”
Hey everyone, just wanted to post that on November 9, I'll be releasing my new CD "The Calling Whisper." Since I'll be selling through CDBaby, it might take a couple of days before it's available. I have posted 2 new songs off the album. "To Wither In..." & "These Grey Skies." Enjoy.
“Gary Tipping is a British singer/songwriter and an independent music artist who writes and produces his own songs and music videos. His folk/acoustic songs are as personal and intimate as a John Lennon song and sung in the easy listening style of a Paul Simon song. During 2009 he won several awards for his singing, song writing and music video production and he rightly deserves this international recognition.”

Its all go here - there is a full page interview with me in the new Acoustic magazine - really odd - I wandered into my local WH Smiths and it was in there. I felt a right prat in the shop, reading it!! Weird getting national press - i am really pleased :)
“This is a unique compilation video that showcases Gary's talents quite admirably as an emotive singer, songwriter, guitarist and performer. Song extracts are well set, and helps communicate the over-all feel of Gary's music and personable style. With excellent sound quality, and some insightful camera work, this video serves as an excellent example to all artists about the power and possibilities that a promo video can offer.”
« Polygraph » is intended as a portrait of human relationships turning to the sour, hinting at the necessity of constant genuineness. The composition lasts a little over 10 minutes and is composed of the following four sections…
"With a light and airy falsetto vocal style, Gary Tipping, is standing on the forefront of musical mastery. This independent artist from the United Kingdom is far from elementary when it comes to his music styling.
Gary is a self-taught musician that has natural talent. His guitar and keyboard is the playground in which his esoteric lyrics find a home. This soulful singer has an innate ability to connect with his listener through the leaps and bounds of ballads. With…Continue
