Full Version Bio:
A wise man once said; “You don’t choose your passion, your passion chooses you”. For Gary Girouard that passion has always been the piano. Over the past 10 years, he has released five “Naked Piano” albums – and has won two “Album of the Year” awards in the contemporary piano genre.
Girouard’s style combines equal parts classical, new age and pop into what the editor of Boston Live hails as “a masterpiece…a testament to the gracious sounds of a fluid live recording”. Girouard’s music has been described as “hauntingly beautiful”, “deeply moving” and “incredibly powerful”.
The Naked Piano series evolved from the sentiment to capture timeless themes and allow people an escape from an otherwise hectic lifestyle. Girouard comments; “People lead increasingly stressful lives, The Naked Piano is a simple response – highlighting a beautiful instrument in its most pure and natural form. Whether it’s cooking, dining or driving in your car, there are times when we all could use some refreshing piano music.”
Girouard is a QRS Music Recording Artist (the original Player-Piano Roll company) and continues to compose and perform his unique brand of solo piano artistry. If you’d like to book Gary for a private function or performance, please visit the Booking Page.
Giving a nod to past experiences and worthy causes, Girouard donates a portion of album sales to The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp (www.holeinthewallgang.org) – a special place for children with cancer and other serious illnesses.
