Born and raised in Richmond, Virginia, Gray Gurkin started writing and performing his original songs at the age of 16 in local coffeehouses. He expanded his songwriting skills playing his unique blend of Pop Rock in local bands during the 90’s. After college he made a living as a solo acoustic act on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. From there he headed down to Atlanta, Georgia, joining forces with the vibrant acoustic community. During the late 90’s Gray was heavily influenced by Americana Roots Music and decided to move to Austin, Texas to pursue his music. Gray performed often with his band "Hubcap Fetish" on Austin's known 6th Street and also recorded an Acoustic CD titled “Six Pack”. Gray moved back to his home town in 2002 and has been very involved in the songwriting side of the music business including hitting the Nashville songwriter’s scene.
In 2007 Gray jumped back in the ring as a performing artist and has not looked back. His music branded projects "Glitter Boot" and "The Lost Souls" took on the big stages with a ton of energy backed by his signature songwriting. This was all possible by the talented musicians that helped back his projects. During this time he released his CD titled "Horseshoes". In 2013 he released an Acoustic CD, Signs of Hope" which showcased his craft accompanied by passionate vocals.
Gray Gurkin (singer/songwriter) is proud to be an endorsee for Art & Lutherie / Godin Guitars. Gray has been playing these eco-friendly handcrafted Canadian acoustic guitars for over 15 years.
"I play hard and have never found such a workhorse of a guitar. They sound great plugged in or just strumming in the living room, not to mention you can't beat the price. The Canadian woods A&L uses actually get better with age. I'm glad to be a partner with such a quality product."
