Some artists find it difficult stepping back into the spotlight after a long hiatus, but not for R&B recording artist Gary Beals. Now, back and better than ever, Gary Beals introduces us to a more refined and conscious version of himself on his new album, Bleed My Truth. From track opener and lead single “Me For Me,” which tackles vulnerability in relationships; to “Why Not”, a more confident and aggressive tone of Gary pursuing a love interest; to reminiscing on past versions of himself in “Pictures,” Beals’ third studio album, released October 23rd, offers listeners the chance to experience all the levels of self-revelation.
