Gary Pinto is the most popular man in the Australian Music Industry. Why?  He’s one of the most sought after vocalists, he’s humble, connected and hard working.  Signed to Sony Music in his boy band era as chart topping member of CBD, widely regarded as pioneers of RnB music in Australia, Aria Award winning, multi-platinum selling recording artist, Gary has received accolades from Music Legends Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson and is considered one of the greatest Soul and R&B Singers that Australia has produced.  After being invited by Stevie Wonder to sing at his Daughter Sophia’s 16th birthday, Stevie accompanied Gary playing music from one of their favourite artists, Donny Hathaway.  Gary is also a vocal coach on The Voice & The Masked Singer, and has worked as a Casting Producer on The Voice and Australian Idol 2023. 

With a career full of highlights,  Gary returned to the spotlight with a brand new album, Sam Cooke The Music, released through Sony Music in 2022.  The album (produced by Justin Stanley who is best known for his work with Eric Clapton, Sheryl Crow, Jet, Mark Ronson, and Noiseworks) is Gary’s unique tribute to an American icon – the man known as the ‘King of Soul’ and a key figure in the American Civil Rights movement – who died in December, 1964 at age 33.  The album is packed to the brim with new recordings of the music Sam Cooke made timeless like ‘Wonderful World,’ ‘Bring It On Home,’ ‘A Change Is Gonna Come,’ ‘You Send Me,’ ‘Unchained Melody,’ ‘Another Saturday Night’ and much more featuring duets with Jimmy Barnes and Guy Sebastian.  In 2023, Gary will continue to tour the country with his live Sam Cooke show, allowing listeners to sit back and enjoy this astonishing collection of songs delivered from an unforgettable voice.
