Over the years his music has absorbed and adapted a diverse range of elements including Australian aboriginal and West Indian reggae (before either was popular with mainstream western audiences). In 1990 Gary Shearston was recognised in Australian country music with the Tamworth Songwriters' Association's award for Bush Ballad of the Year.
Discerning listeners will know that much of Gary's songwriting has reflected a 'spiritual' thread running through his life and most recently he has been a minister of religion in rural Australia. He still writes, sings and records wonderfully evocative and distinctively Australian original songs. Gary's songs from 1964 to today are available on CD and reissued 'archive CD' (CD-R).
