Gray has a pleasant, clear singing voice that would have fit in perfectly in Greenwich Village folk clubs at the dawn of the ‘60s. ”

— Mark Hinson, The Tallahassee Democrat

BIO:

George Gray, singer-songwriter and storyteller living in Tallahassee FL,  has performed at area folk festivals, such as The Will McLean Music Festival in Brooksville FL,  Monticello’s Southern Music Rising, the Florida Folk Festival in White Springs and the South Florida Folk Festival where he was a winner of the Vic Heyman singer-songwriter contest. He sings original tunes that are sometimes thought provoking and often humorous. His subjects range from obscure historical events like I Choose Music, (about Karim Wasfi re-adapting to life in Baghdad) to humorous, Why Buy the Cow, (about a boy reflecting on what this phrase means to him at different times in his life) to serious, Pane of Glass, (about visiting a loved one in jail.) A lover of nature and the outdoors, some of his songs reflect his concern for the natural beauty of Florida's springs, rivers, and wetlands. His ballad to the Apalachicola River, Apalach, won recognition at the 2016 Will McLean Music Festival. He accompanies himself using a unique finger-picking method on guitar, which suits his contemporary folk style very well. 

George has been a student, nurseryman, landscaper, bookeeper, teacher and until his recent retirement a computer network administrator. Throughout it all folk music kept him sane (mostly) from the time he first learned to play at around the age of 8. Several years ago, he woke up from a dream with a complete new song in his head and decided he could probably do that awake as well. He’s been writing and sharing his own songs ever since.

His subjects range from obscure history events like Surrender, (about Robert E Lee and various events of his life) to humorous, You Can Get Paid for That, (about a country boy moving to the big city and learning he can sell his bodily fluids) to serious, Pane of Glass, (about visiting a loved one in jail.) 

Several years ago, he woke up from a dream with a complete new song in his head and decided he could probably do that awake as well. He’s been writing and sharing his own songs ever since.
