Gary Kanter / Bio

Gary is a New York-born Songwriter/Humorist with a passion for topical songs in the tradition of Phil Ochs, Tom Paxton, and John Prine. His songs will make you laugh, cry, and think, though not necessarily in that order.

Topics include Rush Limbaugh (“Rush is a Four-letter Word”), political extremism (“Tea Chantey”), personal isolation, America’s lost greatness, and the daily valor of a new single-mom learning how to make a life for herself and her children. “Your Own Brand of Blues,” about tavern and the street singing, has been described by critic J.W. McClure as “ragged as any Kris Kristofferson bar song.”
