Gary''s music career began at the age of 5 in the children''s choir when his mother took him along with his 5 brothers and 1 sister to church. By the time he turned 10 years old he and his brothers began singing on many occasions as the Wyatt Brothers. Even though the other interests separated the group, Gary continued singing in the choir as well as another family group that later formed.
At age 16, Gary began playing the piano almost instantly as a result of prophecy and by age 17 he began playing for the church, the choir and the family group. Being influenced by his older brothers Kenny (piano) and Ricky (Drums), Gary began to practice in the creativity realm. As a result of this practice he soon began to compose original melodies and lyrics creating his own style. As of spring 2007 he has composed more than 800 songs and he inherited more than 200 songs as a result of the passing of his older brother Kenny.
In 1980 Gary began to record music in the studio with his brother Kenny. By 1982, he recorded his first solo demo project of 8 songs. In 1987 he recorded his first single release entitled "Continue". This song became the #1 song on Seattle''s KNHC Gospel Showcase hit list and gained major airplay on Seattle''s KCMS Christian Radio Station. It also gained him notoriety as the Northwest Male Vocalist of the year in 1988, 89 & 90, voted by the listening audience. This launched a "cross-culture" music ministry that has taken Gary across U.S. and Canada, ministering in practically every denomination, culture and nationality.
In 2000 Gary formed Gary Wyatt Publishing and in 2007 he formed Gary L. Wyatt Ministries.
