In 1995 Shail began working with music production company Natural Sound Source in London, producing music for television, film, and advertising. In 2004 he produced the Arabic fusion album Infinity in Dubai.
In 2010 Shail was back in the recording studio working on his autobiographical self-penned album ‘Daze Like This.’ A collection of new songs interspersed with some re-workings of some Johnny Jarvis themes. The album received critical success, but failed to reach a wider audience mainly due to Shail’s reluctance to embrace the new ‘download’ generation.
In October 2015 Shail’s memoir I Think I’m On The Guest List was published by New Haven Publishing Ltd.
In 2016 Shail returned to acting with a cameo role in the forthcoming movie ” Stranger” where he was cast as a psychopathic cowboy. Gary is currently filming “Hound” a bio pic of the 18th Century poet Francis Thompson. The film also stars Toyah Wilcox, Hazel O’Connor and Wayne Sleep. The film is due for release early 2018.
