After 25 years and countless shows as a member of many bands, multi-instrumentalist Gerald McGrath is emerging as one of Kingston, Ontario’s favourite solo performers. Gerald uses live instrument and vocal looping to create sonic soundscapes that captivate listeners and has become known for his engaging and captivating performances.
Gerald has been fortunate to share a stage with many excellent musicians over the years, including Kingston legend Spencer Evans, folk-country chanteuse Mellow Lily, and current Glorious Son Chris Koster. Gerald has performed in bands that have played everything from alternative, to country, to hard rock, and everything in between. As a solo artist, he has taken all of his experience in those disparate genres, and distilled it into his songwriting.
Gerald’s original music takes the best parts of 90’s alternative and present-day indie music and blends them in a way that has drawn comparisons to the Gin Blossoms and the Watchmen. Currently working on his first album of solo material, his most recent single, Kenopsia, is available on all streaming platforms. Gerald expects to release the full album in fall 2023.
“Sitting on the patio at Spearhead listening to Gerald McGrath; just wanted to say WOW!! Such a great musician. Hope to see him back again, love the vibe! Thanks for a great afternoon!”
“Caught him at Gan Brewing Co and was blown away by his voice and his ability to arrange songs in such a warm and beautiful way. A true talent not to be missed.”
