Seo na tha aig Gary ri ràdh mun tiotal: “I have called the album ERA as I wanted to mark the end of a significant period in my life. Due to musical commitments, I retired from my beloved sport of Shinty and for the same reason finished up with the Scottish Fire and Rescue service. A new era has now begun with the birth of my two nieces and getting married this year so ERA is about marking this change in my life’s direction.”

When asked about the title, Gary said, “I have called the album ERA as I wanted to mark the end of a significant period in my life. Due to musical commitments, I retired from my beloved sport of Shinty and for the same reason finished up with the Scottish Fire and Rescue service. A new era has now begun with the birth of my two nieces and getting married this year so ERA is about marking this change in my life’s direction.”
