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.
