About GJART


GJART was created in 2015. In reality it has been over 30 years in the making. As a huge fan of electronic music since the early 80s (Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys, The Human League, Soft Cell ), I always wanted to play and write music but for various reasons never had the chance.

In the summer of 2015 I finally got the opportunity and from then until May 2017 I worked on many tracks, eventually selecting the best 10 for my debut album. In June 2017 Revelation was ready and released. It contains 10 instrumental tracks from synth pop to EDM and trance with a chillout end.

My musical interests and influences are very wide; Ella Fitzgerald to Pink Floyd wide. What they all have in common is great melody and hooks, something that I try to emulate in my music. Lyrics are also important to me so I try not to write trite ones and often put cultural references in them (although sometimes you just need a word that rhymes!)

A chance meeting with BetaPSI online in 2017 lead to Fireproof where I stepped in front of the mic for the first time!

In 2018 I collaborated extensively with the musician, producer and serial collaborator Deggsy. This lead to my sophomore album Canorous being released with eight synth-pop tracks and a couple of surprises.

After Canorous, Deggsy and I continued to collaborate and that lead to my third album Thieves And Dreamers in 2020 which is a mix of electronic pop and dance music.

Despite the pandemic we've continued with the music and have another five tracks completed, so album number four is not far away!
