Gary Meyers\' New Flamenco Album Transports Us to Andalusia Gary Meyers is an in-demand flamenco guitarist, composer, and producer who has performed at countless corporate events, weddings, private parties, restaurants, cafes, and more. He may not be from Spain, but he plays with grace under the brand "Dirty Flamenco" as an acknowledgement that he is a Westerner playing a music near and dear to the heart of Andalusia, Spain, and beyond. He learned under the tutelage of Maestro Rene Heredia—the man credited with bringing flamenco to Colorado in the 1960s. Gary is an intuitive performer with a command of flamenco and rhumba traditions who eases between set melodies and improvisatory flights of fancy to heighten the entertainment experience.

His new album, 'Desperado's Shade,' is a 10 song collection of original flamenco songs that transport you to another place. You feel like you are on the edge of a cliff in "Cliff's Edge" or about to cross a river in "Spanish River." He creates adventure in his music. You feel like you're on a quest or a long journey, yet he also creates a sense of calm. He is able to let the music tell a story that words would never be able to do. His finesse with the guitar is the lyrics that guide you through the stories.

Gary started as a self-taught guitarist at the age of 14, playing rock, shred, and classical. In 2002, upon hearing a friend play a rhumba, he put the electric guitar down. “Immediately when I heard him play, I knew what I wanted to do with the rest of my life,” Gary says. He continues: “I won’t lie, I was a pretty good electric guitarist, but flamenco is a completely different technique. I had to start over, and it took many years.”
