He then worked in Dusty Springfield’s band The Echoes and became a member of Brian Auger and the Trinity. After attending the Leeds College of Music, in 1969 Gary Boyle briefly joined Dorris Henderson’s folk rock band Eclection, before returning to Brian Auger once more in June. For three years in the early 1970s he worked as a session musician with musicians Keith Tippett, Mike Gibbs, Mike Westbrook, Soft Machine, Stomu Yamashta’s short-lived band “East Wind”, Bert Jansch and Norma Winstone.
