Gary Moffet is a man of few words. He lets his feelings take over within music.
This way of thinking helped propel April Wine to new heights during the band’s most commercially successful period from the mid seventies until the early eighties. Moffet was the principle arranger on the songs from Nature of the Beast. The album which broadened April Wine’s image South of the Border.
That talent has also allowed Gary to work on several projects behind the scenes and allow his gift to shine on.
Now, Moffet has utilized his skills as a guitar player and arranger to produce one great album. Combined with Bianca Ortolano and several guests, the end result is like rose petals pressed into a book.
Please listen below as Gary explains the album and what to expect in the future.
