BLUES: Rhythm & Blues, WORLD: Native American
Gary Small is an accomplished guitarist and vocalist, raised in the wilds of Montana and Wyoming and a 15 year veteran of the west coast music scene. Small is a member of the Northern Cheyenne Tribe whose reservation resides in remote Southeast Montana to the east of the Little Bighorn Battlefield, (Remember the story of General Custer? The Cheyenne were the home team.). Small takes great pride in his heritage and talks of his roots proudly and with confidence.
His blues tracks: B.B. King with the Fabulous Thunderbirds in the rhythm section. A Music lover is hard pressed to find room in any venue where Small''s veteran musicians perform. A weekend at Portland''s premier blues club, the Candlelight Lounge, was no exception for this incredibly solid group led by this long black-haired Indian man.
Small has aimed his interests as a solo artist with his first "Native Americana" cd release (not surprisingly) entitled "Wild Indians". Released in July of 2001, "Wild Indians" won the prestigious Nammy "Songwriter of the Year" award and nominated for : "Best Songwriter", "Best Male Performer", and "Best Blues/Jazz Recording" by the 2002 Native American Music Association.
Small has recently been appearing on the concert stage with other Native American performers such as, Rita Coolidge (Walela), Indigenous, Native Roots, and Keith Secola. Small has previously garnered a nomination from the Native American Music Awards Show "Best Blues/Jazz Recording" for his 2000 blues release "Cheyenne Blue Revisited".
