“The song is wholly inspired by creative frustrations over lockdown. Wrestling with self-doubts whilst cooped up in the rural outskirts of Bristol watching venues I love, being forced to close their doors.” –says Gully.
The recipe? Vocals, keys, drums, guitar, bass, synth, trumpet, trombone and saxophone. The result? Over three minutes of good quality music. And what’s better than that? A good song with a significant story behind.
“‘See The Sun’ is an anthem to recognising one’s own demons and then forging a merry little tune mantled by the mantra that you should never give up ‘till I see the Sun.’”
The tune’s rhythm is a one-way ticket to a sweet-sounding trip. The vocals are the right mix of Artic Monkeys and Bloc Party. The music is a very groovy melody.
Gully is a musician to watch out for and follow up with. He knows how to use his talent, not only to compose great songs, but to show the brigh side of things even when life has been dark for everyone during the last couple of years.
The main influences of Gully are Soul/Rock, artists of the likes of Louis Armstrong, Jack Garratt, Samm Henshaw, Nina Simone and Supertramp.
He has previously played live across the country, like headlining the ‘BBC Introducing Stage’ at the Little Orchard Festival in Cornwall, Mr Wolf’s, Exchange, The Gallimaufrey
in Bristol and Komedia, Moles, The Pig and Fiddle and The Nest in Bath.
