Gerry Cinnamon is a Scottish singer songwriter with a difference. His infamous live shows are a mixture of beat-up acoustic guitars, soulful harmonica and heartfelt vocals.
Anthemic sing along tracks, laced with social commentary seem to capture the imagination of the crowd. With every track being different, it keeps the listener on their toes. Using loop pedal harmonies and pounding kick drums, Gerry makes a habit of whipping the audience into a frenzy which sees them leaving on a high and wanting more.
Tracks such as ‘Kampfire Vampire’ and ‘Fickle Mcselfish’ demonstrate his deft harmonica skills and the sincerity in his song-writing. The loop pedal and drum machines present a whole different dynamic.
Gerry played King Tut’s Summer Nights Festival in July last year selling out without even having released a record out, purely through word of mouth . He returned to the same venue in December for his own sell out headline gig.
His first record release “Hope Over Fear” charted at number 5 for two weeks in the alternative itunes chart and saw him close the show at a rally in George Square attended by almost 15,000 people.
Last summer Gerry played numerous festivals across the country including Forever Sun Music Festival, King Tut’s Summer Nights, Glasgow’s Commonwealth Games festival zone at Glasgow Green and Kyles Music Festival. As well as clocking up numerous gigs and folk nights including a main stage slot at the O2 ABC Glasgow.
As the 2015 calendar fills up with UK festival dates, filming for his first music video and the highly anticipated release of Kampfire Vampire via First Run Records / Nottinghill Publishing; 2015 looks set to be a busy year for the young Glaswegian.
