With no hype machine, no radio play and no record label backing, Gerry Cinnamon has achieved record breaking success and cemented his status as Scotland’s most successful independent artist.

Just one Facebook post and less than 5 minutes, was all Cinnamon needed to sell out multiple nights at the world famous, Barrowland Ballroom; becoming the first unsigned artist to do so; and earning him a place in the music institution’s hall of fame alongside the likes of David Bowie, Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller and Ocean Colour Scene.

The prestigious Barrowland ‘Hall of Fame’ award adds to his growing collection, including his Great Scot Award for Entertainment and Best Live Act in the Scottish Alternative Music Awards.

Gerry’s music crosses generations in a way that only a handful of wordsmiths can – relatable, relevant and a true story teller.  Unsigned and unmatched in his ability to operate outside of the mainstream Gerry has become a cult hero and force to be reckoned with.
