MUSIC AUTHENTIC REVIEW:  "In an era when geographic boundaries blur together with niches and genres in music, the ongoing trend of British Americana has a new representative, his name is Gary Cawker. With undeniable flavours of folk and blues, his brand new single “Occasional Love” might sound slowcore at first but its traits and storytelling take it way beyond.  The soundscape is spacious, the mix is balanced and the mastering provides enough shine on the instruments.  The other excellent quality is the purity, the stripped down arrangement and simple chord progression which together strengthen the song – it took a bold decision in today’s musical scene and it has played out well"
