Gary Lynn Floyd is an American singer-songwriter who connects straight to the heart and lifts up a room with his inspirational lyrics and soulful style. A native of Houston, Gary began picking out melodies on a piano at four years old, and he’s been making music ever since. Today he writes and records deep and meaningful music, and shares these songs like a gift to audiences across the country. His style is a mix of pop, rhythm, and blues, combining silky vocals with powerful lyrics. It is Gary’s openness to divine inspiration that fuels his endless supply of musical ideas, creates his heart-opening lyrics, and is the light that shines through his performances. With his piano and microphone, Gary is a catalyst for positive change and raises the collective vibration not only through his music but also through his welcoming presence on stage. Gary brings to his musical performances the culmination of a life’s work. From early roots in gospel and jazz to stage and screen acting to his recent one-man show “When Gary Met Harry: The Music of Harry Warren,” Gary draws from a deep and eclectic well of talent and experience.

“Gary Lynn Floyd is quickly becoming a favorite singer and songwriter in the New Thought music world.” – David Goldberg, Science of Mind, 2014

Vocalist, Singer, Songwriter & Teacher

It is the rare artist that is larger than the canvas they occupy. Their mission is bigger than the stage they stand upon. Their commitment and contribution extend beyond themselves to encompass all who come into contact with them. Jami Lula is such an artist.

Born and raised in Detroit’s arts and musical hotbed, Jami made his way to Southern California—into the melting pot, the creative stew where creativity, music and transformation meet. Landing the gig at LA’s Musician’s Institute as a vocal professor, his explanations and leadership provided something unique for his students and his community: a quiet and powerful sense of purpose, balance and giftedness. Music is larger than just making sound. It is the heart of the Spirit walk, the key to creative change in the world.

Associating with the top thinkers in the nascent spiritual and human-potential movement, his music influenced and was influenced: Michael Beckwith, Marianne Williamson, Neil Donald-Walsh, Jean Houston, Barbara Marx-Hubbard, Mary Mannin Morrissey, Bishop Carlton Pearson and so many more were endowed with Jami’s soundtrack - a music consistent with their larger purpose and message.

Lending his voice and leadership in concert to youth groups and spiritual centers throughout the nation, Jami has been honored by LA Music Awards (“Best Male Vocalist”), winner of the Centers for Spiritual Living “Youth Champion Award,” and many other musical and mission-based honors. His work with youth is legend.

With more than 6 albums to his name, it is a stroke of luck that we can enjoy and be ennobled by Jami’s spirit and sound.
