Lead vocalist of the alternative rock band Snow Patrol, Gary Lightbody is popular as a singer and songwriter from Northern Ireland. A multi-instrumentalist, Lightbody is also a rhythm guitarist of the band. Gifted with sensational singing abilities, Lightbody has been active in the industry since 1994. By this time he has already gained immense success with a huge fan following and wonderful earnings. He has a net worth of $5 million dollars.
Talking about his early life, he was born on 15 June 1976 in Northern Ireland to father Jack and mother Lynne. His father is an independent business owner. To study English language and English literature at the University of Dundee Lightbody left home for Scotland in the year 1994. In the same year, he formed a band with Michael Morrison and Mark McClelland named Shrug. He remained in the band for seven years and by that time, the band released two albums and had many tours.
Gary Lightbody has a baritone vocal range. Since in his early teens, he started writing songs and learned guitar formerly without any lessons. He guesses most of the chords as he does not read music.
Despite being so popular, he is known for keeping his personal life low-key. He has never revealed his relationship status or dating history. No doubt he is popular, talented and good looking and many women have to crush on him. He is said to be single which is a matter of surprise. Does he don’t have a girlfriend? As there is no any news about his love life in the tabloids, the rumor about his being a gay has been all around. We hope this rumor turns out fake as soon as he gets married to his lovely wife.
Forty-year-old Gary has a very handsome personality. He stands tall with the height of five feet seven inches. At the beginning of his career, he used to drink very heavily as he was frustrated by Snow Patrol's lack of financial success. His words were "irrational, neurotic and erratic". Now he has a turnaround and has given back-to-back hits. Do you know Lightbody is ardent about football? To know more about his likes and dislikes, one can follow his interviews.
