A Triple Threat Artist with singing, songwriting, and instrumental talent is a rarity these days until you meet Gerry Scullion.
Now, with the debut of his new EP 'Hide & Seek', Gerry Scullion a.k.a. Minus Circus brings a new brand of progressive rock to captivate your heart and soul.
'Hide & Seek' was recorded in Los Angeles in 2007 with two highly acclaimed producers, 11-time Grammy winner Rafa Sardina (Stevie Wonder, Luis Miguel, Macy Gray) and Cheche Alara (Christina Aguilera, Pink)."Gerry was asked to make a wish-list for his band to record with in Los Angeles. He chose Peter Thorn (Chris Cornell, Linda Perry, Courtney Love, Jewel), Sean Hurley (Vertical Horizon, Alicia Keys, John Mayer) and Toss Panos (Andy Summers, Steve Vai) – he got all three. Gerry gets what he wants!" says Sardina.
Like previous releases by Radiohead, Prince and Nine Inch Nails, MC is going directly to fans, bypassing traditional distribution methods and offering the four songs FREE for a limited time.
An Experience Part acoustic, part electric, Gerry Scullion combines Indie riffs and folk beats as effectively as he pulls off a stripped down acoustic performance.
The studio version of the songs on Hide & Seek is film, radio or concert hall ready. Gerry strums his beloved guitar when he's not creating art for new and mixed media – as in the work you see on his web site and album covers. With rich influences ranging from U2, The Blue Nile, Wilco, R.E.M to Sinatra...Gerry's unique brand of rock carries the message of hope throughout his work.
The Young Troubadour and his musical journey began in the summer of 2005 with the creation of a critically acclaimed foursome (drums, bass, guitar and keys), Minus Circus. 27-year-old Scullion has toured Sydney, Ireland and Los Angeles.
Charity work includes performing and raising over $12000 ( 9.5k Euros) in 2003 for Our Ladys Childrens Hospital in Crumlin, Ireland.
