GARY RAMSEY

Story

I am by my nature, an inherently nice guy, I care more for others than I do myself. I am an introvert that communicates better through music and songs. I have toured the world with some incredible artists and have had deals. I had to walk away from that world after seeing firsthand some of the corruption that is very real and prevalent I could not stand idly by and watch or be a part of something that is against all I believe in. My heart will always be bigger than my brain. I strive to be supportive of everyone I come in contact with. I am always performing benefits and trying to help those in need. I volunteer at St. Jude's hospital teaching children with terminal cancer guitar and the joys of music. I am an active member of society and I love people from all walks of life.I just want to share music and listen to the music others do.
