Gary Quinn Shame Cover

Gary’s new single, ‘Shame’, is out on the 22nd of July. You can pre-order it from iTunes.

Gary says of ‘Shame’:

“Shame really came from a situation I was looking in on. I could see a person making the same mistake and getting hurt but never learning from it. I was also listening to Lady Antebellum’s song ‘Need You Now’ which triggered me to thinking that although in their song it all ends ‘happily ever after’ I felt that it sounded like someone might get hurt. Hence ‘Shame’ was born almost as a reply to ‘Need You Now’ and the subject needed a little more of an edgy sound on the recording, which I feel we achieved and I’m pretty excited about people hearing it”.

We’re proud to say that Gary has made an Essential Cover for us, a beautiful acoustic cover of Charlie Worsham’s ‘How I Learned To Pray’.
