Gary Rue

Gary Rue’s music honors the craft of songwriting, reminiscent of the Everly Brothers,
Roy Orbison and Mose Alison. Influenced by nearly anything and everything
musical, but most often by Frederic Chopin, Kurt Weill, The Beatles, Motown, and
the poets of Tin Pan Alley and their Brill Building offspring.
A Gary Rue Performance is an ad lib, rapid-fire affair, riddled with a melodic
cascade of personal favorites from his theatrical scores and pop triumphs, peppered
with musical ideas (occasionally interrupted by an errant thought: he sometimes feels
the need to explain the process), monologues on inspiration (and what does not
inspire), oblique social commentary, and comic highs and lows (when good things
happen to bad people), all thoroughly plumbed from the musical depths of piano,
guitar, and a voice that soars, growl and bubbles within a sardonic Robin
Williams/Noel Coward sense of humor. Influenced by nearly anything and everything
musical, but most often by Frederic Chopin, Kurt Weill, The Beatles, Motown, and
the poets of Tin Pan Alley and their Brill Building offspring.
