Stoneybatter, County Dublin
with his Debut E.P Released In November 2012, and Just home from a 12 day tour of some of New Yorks Finest musical Venues including the rockwood music hall,
North-Sider, Garr Cleary is literally starting to make Waves on the Irish music circuit. Fresh from Ireland’s top festivals Electric Picnic & Castlepalooza, and headlining a sell out gig at the Ten Days of Dublin Festival, this native Dubliner is becoming a strong favourite in the Irish music industry.This original singer - song writer can’t be boxed in one particular genre: his music is raw to the soul; real, yet, modestly honest. His lyrics are tangled with true life stories and experience's way beyond his years. His unique voice and lyrics hold you in awe but then his unusual guitar playing – he plays a right handed guitar, strung right handed upside down – has been known to turn a few heads.
In 2010, Garr's love of the sea brought him to live on remote Collanmore Island off the coast of Co. Mayo. The rugged isolated surroundings offered Garr an opportunity to concentrate on his song writing whilst pushing musical boundaries for him to open up and use the environment to capture the natural venting of his soul. From this he created and captured.
