New Solo Album Sessions
Gareth is in Motherwell off and on over the next few months recording, mixing and mastering what will be his fourth solo album. There's a host of great musicians contributing, some new departures with instrumentation, new sounds and songs. You can keep up to date at MySpace, Twitter and on Gareth's Blog. Watch this space for release information, previews and reviews.
New Solo Album & BAA Fest
Gareth is currently busy finishing off the writing for a new solo album which begins recording on 10th May at The Foundry in Motherwell. We'll be posting some preview demos on MySpace in the next few weeks to give a taster of some of the new songs. Gareth will also be blogging about the creative process from now until the album is realeased.
In the meantime you can catch him LIVE in the Midlands this weekend (Nuneaton/Lea Brook) and over the Bank Holiday weekend at BAA FEST in the beautiful Northumbrian Village of Bellingham. Tickets are still available from the website or by calling 01434 221235.
Gigs, Tours, FT & A Maverick Lyon
With 2010 well underway so is Gareth's schedule for the Spring and Early Summer. Check out our Live Pages for details of solo gigs and the Spring Acoustic Duo tour with Rob Halligan (starts 25th Feb). Visiting 14 venues throughout the UK the Duo tour will be highlighting Traidcraft's Make It Fair campaign which is urging the UK's largest tea brands to switch to Fair Trade. There will be FT stalls at most venues and an opportunity to learn more about the campaign. Finally we're delighted that our good friend Yvonne Lyon is featured in a four page article in next month's edition of Maverick Magazine. Look out for more GDJ press soon.
