Gary Floyd is impossible to listen to without smiling. Just can’t happen. Long one of Dallas’ favorite singer-songwriters, Gary has set hearts aflutter at local nightclubs and piano bars for years with his laidback charm and velvety voice. The Dallas Observer raves that his smooth vocals pound with soul and fire, with a singing style full of the stirring folk-pop qualities of James Taylor or Kenny Loggins.
Mr. Floyd has a ready smile and easy charm that radiates out into the audience. His singing voice is strong, clear and pure. When he plays the piano, it is with love and tender care and the instrument responds in kind to produce beautiful melodious notes.
The songs he performs come from a variety of genres—Country and Western, Adult Contemporary, and Gospel--some of which he had penned himself. He also performs more traditional numbers such as the plaintive "Good Thing Going" from the Stephen Sondheim musical Merrily We Roll Along and "Moonlight Becomes You," the Burke-Van Heusen standard first introduced by Bing Crosby.
