Geary Nelson I am a singer songwriter, and spend most of my time writing and recording songs. I also perform live shows a couple of times a month. I play guitar and several, other instruments and what you hear on the recording is all me. The reason I do this is because it is in my heart and soul to sing, write and perform my own songs.
I started playing music at a young age, my father who was a country singer and performed in local clubs in Ill, they would rehearse at our house and I watched and listened to his band as a young boy, and I knew I had to play music. With guidance from my father and Dick Johnson his lead guitar player, I watched and learned how to play the guitar. As a young teenager I was with a Rock group in the 1960s called the "Panik" we played all over Illinois, we recorded records, toured several States, performed on TV shows, in Chicago we did the "Kismit" show and in Memphis, TN, we did "Dance Party". I started writing songs at that time and have many songs, some good, and some well, not so good but you have to continue to write to get better. I started singing late in life, and focused on that for many years and soon did both, lead Guitar and lead singing in bands. Elvis and the Beatles were huge influences on my musical direction, and also many other artist, too many to mention. I sing, and perform all my own harmonies and backup singing, I play the guitar, Lead/Rhythm, Bass guitar, Drums and I attempt to play some keyboards now and then. I love to write songs that have interesting melody lines and good beats. I consider myself a music creator, and love doing it. I write, produce and arrange all of my own material, it is fun...
