I Feel This Way
Gary, a California native, grew up in the small town of Alturas, near the California/Oregon border. He was privy to only one radio station there, a station that played country music, and although his passion is for pop, the country influence is there in his song writing. 'I lived on a ranch, ten miles out of town, then another mile down a dirt road in the middle of the Warner mountains. My music choices were either country music or my collection of Cat Steven's records. I seemed to connect instantly with Cat Stevens. He was spiritual and had a real gift of channeling music straight from the Higher Source, connecting with your mind and warming your heart.' To this day, Cat Steven's remains one of his biggest influences, and his legacy can be heard in Gary's music. Gary started playing the local music scene in the late 80's. He has played nearly every coffee house and acoustic showcase in San Diego county. His music has taken him throughout Southern California, including performances in Los Angeles and at the Ice House in Pasadena. 'I Feel This Way' is Gary's fourth recording as a solo artist. His earlier recordings gathered critical acclaim from some of the industry's best musical minds. David Kershenbaum, whose producing credits include Tracy Chapman and Kenny Loggins, wrote; 'I really liked his vocals and would like to hear more of his music as it progresses and becomes available... The world needs to hear his music.' Owen Sloane, a top music and entertainment lawyer in Los Angeles, wrote; '...a highly unique artist with urgent, heart felt emotion.' After three solo outings, Gary spent four years recording with his band, CAMP, which showcased his love of campy pop rock. CAMP released it's CD 'Naked' in 1998. With 'I Feel This Way,' Gary returns to his roots as a solo artist, and welcomes you to explore his music and see him play live. 'I'm opening my heart to you, so come on step inside.' The themes of intimacy and vulnerability lure you into the lush and layered pop melodies of Gary Boriero's 4th solo CD, 'I Feel This Way.' The CD, recorded at Rader Studios in San Diego, is a labor of love that has spanned over three years. 'The original goal was to take six months to record the project, however once started, the vision grew much more compelling.' Gary and producer Gary Rader spent months on each song, and with each layer of lush string arrangements and four part harmonies, the songs began to take on a life of their own. Gary's songs are hard to categorize. They are simple, yet rich, drawing from his passion for life and his love of pop music. After years of performing with a band, Gary is enjoying the creativity and intimacy of being a solo artist, and is looking forward to sharing his music and his site. So come on step inside, hear the music, order the CD and check out his schedule to see him play live. Enjoy!
