Album Notes
In the months before his sudden death from a stroke on July 1st, 2013, GARY SHEARSTON had been writing songs “as if there were no tomorrow”. The last years of his life had been incredibly productive, with three albums recorded and released between 2008 and 2012 for the Undercover label.

Those three albums - Best of All Trades (2008), Renegade (2010) and The Great Australian Groove (2012) were all recorded at Restless Music’s country studio. At the time of his death Gary had also completed work on Reverently (released on the Restless label in August 2013). Meanwhile he had a multitude of songs already in the can. Some of these are now able to be heard on Pathways of a Celtic Land.

Restless Music’s studio – just a short drive up the road from his Tenterfield home – was both convenient and accommodating. A wonderful, warm relationship had built up over several years with ROGER ILOTT, whose arrangements and instrumentation Gary had found to be just what he was searching for. Roger, (acoustic, electric guitars, keyboards, backing vocals) together with Jordy Davies-Ilott (drums), Lee Williams (bass) and Penny Davies (backing vocals) have woven a powerful, sympathetic backing for Gary’s acoustic guitar, authoritative voice and substantial lyrics. The songs on Pathways of a Celtic Land show Gary at his most philosophical - as always exploring topics close to his heart - love, justice, peace, faith and hope.

While Gary is much missed in Australian Music, it is fair to say that he is missed even more here at Restless Music. His regular visits to share and record his songs, or to yarn over a cup of tea and Anzac biscuits or a glass of chardy were always welcome as sunshine. We are fortunate to have been left with the songs, which continue to shine on us; “Songs have breath and heart, and soul, songs have soaring wings, your song will go on living so long as singers sing.” (Penny Davies)
