Recording and Audio Engineer
Gary Call Hanley, a native of upstate New York, has been surrounded by music his entire life. Hailing from a family with strong musical roots, his love affair with the art form began when his grandmother began taking him to see symphonies at age 5, and grew after he began studying Suzuki violin. In high school, he studied trumpet and sang in a number of choirs before undertaking classical guitar studies at the State University of New York at Schenectady. Hanley has since put his education and talent to work as a singer, songwriter and performer in a variety of bands – spanning rock, industrial, electronic and more. He has toured extensively across the country, performing in venues such as New York City’s famed CBGBs, and has recorded more than half a dozen albums. As the Nashville Symphony’s audio engineer, Hanley has overseen a number of Nashville Symphony recording projects and manned the Schermerhorn’s sound board for hundreds of concerts for nearly a decade, all while remaining a mainstay in the Nashville music scene.
