About G Child
Gary “G Child” Denson was born and raised in a close knit community on the north side of Bessemer, Alabama better known to locals as “The Field”. He developed a passion for music at the tender age of six while attending Macedonia Baptist Church, where he would later become the drummer and a lead vocalist. By the time he was thirteen, he was writing music and recording at local studios with high hopes of one day becoming famous.
Years passed and G Child started to rebel. Slowly but surely, he fell victim to the hard knock street life. By the end of 2005 his lifestyle had caught up with him causing him to lose five years of his freedom. His passion for music never left him. While incarcerated, it grew even stronger, as music was all he had in order to stay sane within the harsh confinement of the prison walls. He continued to write and pulled inspiration from memories and hopes of getting the chance to be free again to turn his life around. Two years into his sentence, he received news that his mother had passed away from diabetes. This caused him to take his music to another level and he was determined to make good a promise he had made his mom years ago. He began to write different genres of music, running the gamut from pop to R and B soul.
After being released, he began to perform with a local band from Birmingham, Alabama singing cover songs in different venues throughout the city. Although this created a local buzz for him and set his performing foundation, G Child had much bigger aspirations. His focus shifted to diving deeper into his own creativity and developing original lyrics and sounds. He plans to release his EP in early 2018 entitled “Square 1” which opens into the first phase of his long term vision.
