March 7, 2012 - PRLog -- Gary Alt has begun 2012 on a high note, and provides the clues as to why. First, his new Beatles show on an FM radio station has won legions of fans and can be heard through the website following the live broadcast for fans who do not live in the northern New Jersey and northeast Pennsylvania listening area. Secondly, his new single, “The Moon is Broken Tonight,” is regarded by industry observers as one of the most poignant love songs to be released by an independent artist in the last few years.

What’s more, his fans are very pleased to have learned of Alt’s recent website announcement that 50 percent of all net proceeds from sales of his CDs and MP3s will go to the Jorge Posada Foundation and the Children’s Cancer Research Fund.

Alt, who writes, arranges, produces, sings, and plays guitar, keyboard and percussion on most of his own compositions, has been recording for many years and currently has seven CDs and several singles on the market available for download. He has also performed solo and with bands at clubs in New York, New Jersey and throughout the Southeast, and has appeared on many radio programs, including the Artist First Radio Network, WGHT-AM, and HomeGrownRadioNJ, on which he had a popular three-hour weekly show in 2011 called “Crosswinds.”

But among the most exciting radio news on his website is the announcement of a new show called “The Cavern”  on WNTI (Hackettstown, NJ). Now in its second month, “The Cavern” is a Beatles-only program which combines plenty of songs with serious dialogue about the group’s career and musical progression, trivia, anecdotes and more.

“Getting to this point was not really a magical mystery tour at all—although I love the way that sounds, particularly in light of what my new show is all about. I guess it’s just the result of hard work, devotion to the things I love, and the inspiration and support of a lot of people I’ve met along the way,” says Alt, whose earliest memories are musical: even as a young child on Long Island he listened diligently to the radio, bought hundreds of records, and studied several instruments. Today he is one of the most active artists in the independent movement.

His latest single, “The Moon is Broken Tonight,” features exquisite harmonies, a beautiful slide guitar, and the kind of emotional lyrics that makes music as powerful as it can be. At least in the hands of accomplished artists like Gary Alt.

Gary’s albums include “Gift of Projection,” “Open Road,” “Tribute” and the most recent, “Art of Survival,” which features 13 songs that move from hard rock to funk to social commentary to pop and ballads. His album “Not for Sale to Minors” was noted by one reviewer as music that “rocked my world one minute and soothed my soul the next.” “Tribute” was an homage to three dozen of his most important musical influences, including Steely Dan, Burt Bacharach, The Beatles, Carole King, Stevie Wonder, The Allman Brothers and others. One reviewer called it “an exuberant and inspiring tribute.”

Gary also wrote and produced the albums “Alien’s Heart,” “Open Road” and “It’s About the Kids.
