Born in Birmingham, England, Gerard spent his early years listening to The Beatles and Stevie Wonder. “I was inspired by various pop and R & B artists at an early age.” His family moved from England to New York City when Gerard was 11 and then a few years later moved to the Midwest. “When I was there I started learning guitar and the bass and realizing I had a voice, I started a band, which played in clubs all over the Midwest.”
G TOM MAC returned to New York City to pursue his performing career. “My first gigs in NY were playing bass and guitar in R & B bands in Harlem.” Soon Gerard was writing songs for himself and his career began to take off. Brought to Los Angeles by Warner Brothers Records to showcase him as an artist, G TOM MAC quickly impressed Hollywood’s film elite like Joel Schumacher, Jerry Bruckheimer, Cameron Crowe, and David Geffen.
