ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"A Homerun" declared Cashbox. "McAuley is a born story-teller..." Yada yada yada. See what this all started? The truth is I released "Tales From The Jordan Valley Jail" as a joke and a dare (it was essentially a compilation of submitted songs to record labels and publishers) so I put it under the name "Chaz" McAuley thus denying any involvement if it bombed. "Chaz" is my Dad's nickname. Instead it gets great reviews, gets radio play not only Coast to Coast but internationally (Brazil? Croatia? Croatia is playing my album???) as well. Whoda thunk? "Golly McAuley you're one funny guy". "The whole album gets an excellent rating". Whew! So if you wonder how I got started on this life of crime, this is it. My first time at bat.

Gary McAuley is a songwriter with a gift for creating eclective tongue-in-cheek variety paks of music and musical comedy. As an artist, Gary McAuley has had his paintings exhibited at art galleries, his short film "Goin' Up The Country" won applause and awards at international film festivals.
