Irish/Australian solo artist Ger Mythen is a native of Waterford, where he was dragged, kicking and screaming, into the world in 1967. Growing up in Ireland’s oldest city exposed him to a rich history and culture going back 1100 years. Naturally, music was a big part of this and Gerry had started playing gigs as a teenager by the late 1980’s. In 2004, he accepted an invitation to become the resident solo performer at Molly Malone’s located just off in Singapore’s Boat Quay. He packed his bags and moved, from his then adopted home of Melbourne, to the tropics for “six months or so”. Fourteen years on he is still here, and still working primarily in the solo
acoustic field, although he has fronted classic rock band The No-Daddies on many occasions, as well as making guest appearances with Shirlyn & The UnXpected and Heritage, among others.
He still performs regularly at Molly Malone’s and other venues around Singapore, while spending his days as a freelance writer and stay-at-home Dad. With a repertoire spanning around 200 songs of all genres and eras from the 50’s to today, he has occasionally been described as a human jukebox. He has also been known to attempt songs that he technically doesn’t know – live for the first time -on request, with the guest holding up the lyrics in front of him on their phone. It usually works!
