Born and raised in Trim, Co. Meath, GERRY TULLY is a gifted singer and songwriter. He grew up in a musical family and taught himself to play guitar at an early age. His earliest influences were his parent's singsongs at home, traditional music, and his love of poetry.
After leaving school half way through his secondary education, Gerry worked various daytime jobs but continued to hone his vocal and instrumental skills by gigging solo and also with many other bands. He has played in various music genres including a country band, heavy metal group, and traditional/ballad outfits.
In 2002 Gerry released a six-track demo CD called “Grist for the Mill” which met with great acclaim and has featured on RTE national radio.
In 2003 he joined forces with two friends to form a traditional group “Coisir”. They embarked on a tour of Germany in 2004 with “Sessions From The Hearth” covering 17 cities in 17 nights. They also appeared on Brendan Begley's award winning program “Gantry”. Together they released a CD called “On The Right Track”. The four songs on the CD are penned by Gerry and have gained great favour with audiences and critics alike. During this time, Gerry also found time to tour on the festival circuit in America and Europe with other Irish musicians. Gerry has played support to a host of well-known artists including Dervish, The Fureys, The Hothouse Flowers, Mundy, and The Dubliners, and featured on the Working Class Heroes Tour with Don Baker, Ronnie Drew, and Finbar Furey.
In 2004 he decided to become a full time musician and build a solo career. He started gigging in the hotels, pubs and clubs mainly in the Leinster area. He continued his song writing during this time and in 2007 recorded his debut album “Leaves Float Down” which he released in February 2008. World-renowned musician Don Baker lends his distinctive style of harmonica playing to track 4 – “News For You”. With this hot new compilation of tracks, he intends to gig in Ireland, England and beyond, and bring his unique blend of music and story telling to a broader audience.
Gerry is a very strong solo performer. He uses various guitar tunings and self-taught finger styles to enhance his flair for story telling. He has a strong on-stage presence, and his confident powerful singing voice leaves the listener in no doubt that he is in every sense of the word a true performer - A Must Hear.
Jackie Hayden – Hotpress Magazine “Gerry has a robust voice ideal for mainstream, pop, or folk tunes, and he oozes confidence as a performer echoing back to early Dillon and Tom Paxton”.
Sean Laffey – Irish Music Magazine “Tully is a talent at work, and one to watch out for”.
