Thank you Comeherefloyd for following my journey, having a peak through my GR-sunglasses and writing such a poetic review about “Will I Be Alone For The Rest Of My Life?” – Read the full review HERE.

“Gus Ring writes songs with a chip on his shoulders. A look at the world is different from a pair of GR sunglasses. It’s rose tinted, but never long enough to bring the kind of coma to your reality.”

Nordic Music Reviews

“I’m captivated straight from the start. It’s a fragile, melancholy opening, which similarly to many tracks on that ‘Hypnoseas’ album, uses sparse instrumentation. Totally exposed, the attention shifts onto the lyrics which are poignant and powerful.”

Come Here Floyd

Thank you Comeherefloyd for really letting my music into your hearts with THIS beautiful review!

“When the chorus hits, your emotions well up with upheaval. Much of the angst and past memories of disappointments and tragedies, frighteningly come up to the surface, and you get angry. Angry about how things have come to this point in time. Angry about how you have been used up like a throw away can. Angry – that the world seems to be against you. But then the supple and empathetic picking and vocals of Gus, calms your soul, in parallel to the person you really ARE. ‘You Deserve So Much More’ is powerful, and in this realm of empowerment, a switch must be turned on. You can’t change the past, so you have only one path to salvation.”

The Doors Cover

“To be strange is something I always have treasured. I have a big love for people that dare to be different, because they are brave enough to show who they really are. For me this song is about feeling lonely, but still standing there with a little smirk on your face, looking at everyone else thinking; it’s not me who is strange – it’s you.”

This is my cover of The Doors Classic ”People Are Strange”.

Cover Reviews!

My Dusty Springfield cover is starting to get some recognition! Thanks a lot Unpeeled (UK) and Drevet (SWE)  for reviewing it! 

“This is a song of abandonment, desertion and desolation and Gus Ring tackles that head on and Gus Ring ends up just as involved in, infected and hypnotised by the narrative as Dusty Springfield and her team did.” – Unpeeled (UK)

“Gus Ring ska ha en eloge för att ge sig på den här låten. En medalj i ädlaste valör. Han gör det riktigt bra i all sin enkelhet.” – Drefvet (SWE)
