Gary Baugh – Having shared the stage with Bonnie Raitt, Fleetwood Mac, Dave Loggins and others over the years,
this coastal singer/songwriter now splits his time between the San Juan Islands of Washington State and the Gulf Coast of Florida.
Gary’s song writing style sprinkles between Americana, Country, Folk and Folk Rock…something he likes to call, Americana Coastal. Not a surprise since his influences range from Jim Croce to Keith Urban to Jimmy Buffett to John Hiatt. His writing has taken on a more personal introspective avenue while sharing with the audience the cause of such inspirations. With his delivery and insights, the listener is allowed an inside look into his songwriting.
Fueled by his passion for travel, beach bars, meeting new friends and nature’s offerings, Gary’s songs can take you on a mental vacation or pull at your heartstrings. Either way, you will leave with something humming in your head.
