Gary Quinn Releases New Single Nobody Somebody
We’re super excited to announce that Gary Quinn is our first Country Release Friday pick of 2021 with MAM Roots with his new single ‘Nobody Somebody’. It’s available now to buy or stream on all major platforms and you can tune into @mam_roots IGTV from 2pm today for a teaser of the acoustic live version.
About the new single, Gary revealed, “‘Nobody Somebody’ is about that feeling when you’re around that one special person that helps you be the best version of yourself.”
It’s a co-write between Quinn, Kyle Schlienger (‘In Case You Didn’t Know’ – Brett Young) and John Gurney (NSAI Song Contest Winner, 2018).
“A mutual friend to all three of us suggested we work together whilst I was in town during a writing visit to Nashville. John and Kyle were both excited when I brought the idea of ‘Nobody Somebody’ to the table. It was a great writing session to be involved with”, explains the Northern Irish singer-songwriter.
To continue with a current mainstream sound Gary travelled to Sweden to once again enlist the production talents of Richard Alex, having previously collaborated together on ‘Tip Of My Tongue’ earlier in the year.
Gary adds, “I’m really excited about ‘Nobody Somebody’ and delighted that Richard agreed to get onboard again. We’ve worked well together before and this time I feel I’ve had more of a creative input in the production process than on anything I’ve put out before so I can’t wait to hear how it’s received.”
Gary Quinn is a 6-time British CMA Awards winner who continues to gather critical acclaim, at home and abroad. Hailing from Omagh, Northern Ireland but now based in Gtr Manchester, he has toured with Phil Vassar and William Michael Morgan, opened numerous CMA Songwriters Series in the UK and shared the stage with acts such as Kristian Bush, Mo Pitney and Sarah Darling.

Despite the challenges presented by the Covid pandemic, 2020 has still been a hugely productive year. A fruitful five-week song writing visit to Nashville was followed by an appearance at Country 2 Country Berlin in March along with various online streaming performances throughout the year, most noticeably from the stage at the magnificent Symphony Hall in Birmingham. More recently, his stunning cover of ‘O Holy Night’, a duet with Swedish artist Sophie Hanson, continues to be championed on Swedish national radio station – Sveriges Radio P4, in addition to radio and TV plays in the UK and Ireland.
