Gerard came out of the Atlanta garage folk music scene, influenced by “left of the dial” bands like Husker Du and The Replacements. His ragged folk music helped to define the singer-songwriter scene of the 80’s and 90’s in the Southeast. Many writers cite him as an important influence-lyrically, rhythmically and melodically. He had many collaborators including Michelle Malone, Michael Lorant, Indigo Girls, and went on to form various bands such as 54th Mile and The Crafties. Gerard also delved into writing quirky, sometimes spooky, children’s music.
More Than I, released in 1992 and was one of Daemon’s earliest and most critically acclaimed releases. Singer-Songster Shawn Mullins often covered the title track, and Indigo Girls released their version of the CD’s song Thin Line in 1995 on 1200 Curfews. Its combination of production and performance shook people up with its blending of English/Irish folk and alt rock, and its vagabond spiritual leanings.
