Gary Llama


Richmond, VA


1993-Present

Follow

Part punk, part folk, and zero-parts ‘folk punk’… Gary Llama’s music draws inspiration from activist-musicians like Woody Guthrie and Billy Bragg. All self-recorded and self-released on the OVOLR! Record label he founded.

An artist from an early age, Gary began making music in the 1990s Richmond, VA punk scene, singing and playing with the band 500$Fine, then working as an engineer, recording and mixing local punk and hardcore bands. In late 1999, he began releasing his first few solo albums, a self-titled LP under the name of Silence is Suicide in 2000, and a string of releases under the name F-Box.

Fast-forward twenty-plus years, and his solo music, now released under his own name, and with that same activist spirit, and punk ethic, is blending folk with pop, and hip-hop, electronic music, and country, … probably a result of his side projects with various akas with the word ‘society’ appended to them, Beat Weirdos, and as a member of Mineral Writes, Rival Kinds, and 92FU, as well as publishing 14 books on everything ranging from his artwork to essays to a fictional autobiography, and a less-fictional biography of his band 500$Fine, which reunited in 2019.
