Gary Myrick is an American singer, songwriter and guitarist.Born in Dallas, Texas, Gary Myrick played guitar and sang in Dallas and neighboring Fort Worth starting as a teenager. Eventually, he built a significant enough reputation to be asked to join Austin, Texas band Krackerjack, replacing Stevie Ray Vaughan who had left to begin his solo career.

After relocating to Los Angeles, California, he formed Gary Myrick & the Figures, releasing a self-titled album in 1980 which included the hit “She Talks in Stereo.” The band then released the LP Living In A Movie (1981), followed by the EP Language (1983), which featured the percussive single “Guitar, Talk, Love & Drums” and a MTV hit “Message is You.” His combination of blues, rock and new wave won him airplay on modern rock radio stations in the United States and exposure on MTV throughout the 1980s. Two of his songs, “She Talks in Stereo” and “Time to Win,” were used in the 1983 film Valley Girl.
