Gary Lawyer (born 1959) is an Indian singer-songwriter, best known for his most successful single, "Nights on Fire".

Early life and education[edit]


For his debut album, "The Other Side of Dawn", Gary Lawyer was picked up by British label EMI. This made him the first Indian artist to be signed to a major record label outside of India.[1] The album was an overwhelming success, propelled by such hits as "Riding", "The Other Side of Dawn", and "Nights on Fire". Lawyer quickly established himself as a figurehead for MTV in the early 1990s, with "Nights on Fire" being the most played song. The song was so popular that, according to Lawyer, " could set your clock and every two hours it would be would be on twelve times a day."[2]
