Gary Weiner is celebrating the release of his first full length album, RELEASED AT LAST, on June 1, 2019. It will be his 70th birthday. A powerful vocalist, Gary reinterprets classic songs, giving them immediacy and new vitality. He describes this album as a “coming of (old) age story,” in which the songs progress from prophetic finger pointing towards an experience of release, and a settling in to one’s own life. The album shows influences that range from doo wop to jazz and gospel, with a particular nod to Johnny Hartman, Tom Waits, Bobby Darin, Van Morrison and Bruce Springsteen.

“Gary is a belter, with the vocal vibrancy to raise the roof or the hair on your forearms, but what distinguishes this record is a whispery intimacy as Gary takes deep dives into familiar songs to find their core – the thing that makes them timeless rather than familiar.” – Howard Goodman, journalist
