He recently recorded 'Doing the Jimmy Barry Murphy', and has already released 3 albums, and penned a top 20 hit with "Not Tonight - The Bouncer Song". His performances include the Electric Picnic and The Marquee in Cork. Garry has a unique style which brings witty, edgy and local lyrics over some of the catchiest beats out there.
