Coming Up......
Gareth's summer schedule wound up over the bank holiday weekend with a great return trip to the Greenbelt Festival in Cheltenham. From here it's into the Autumn dates with a few exciting gigs in Carlisle, Glasgow, Falkirk and Ayr with Yvonne Lyon (see our Gig list for details), some solo dates in the North East and of course the annual Autumn Tour with Rob Halligan. Look out for an interview with Gareth in the current edition of "Rock n' Reel" magazine and reviews of 'Water & Light' in "Properganda Magazine" along with several others.

New Album Selected Launch !
So the day arrived and Gareth's new album is now on selected release (from Friday 16th May 2008). There will be a more general release in December this year with a full press campaign. In the meantime we've posted some early reviews (which are pretty good !) in the reviews section along with the official Press Release in our Bookings section. Visit the Heading West Music shop to listen to samples or check in to the MySpace site for a couple of full tracks to listen to. Watch out for more tour news soon. Bye for now and enjoy "Water & Light".

Water & Light: Fatea Showcase Sessions
There are already a couple of full preview tracks from the new album up on Gareth's MySpace pages (click on the link at the bottom left of the page). If you'd like to hear another then head over to The Fatea Showcase Sessions - a new downloadable sampler of up and coming singer-songwriters which features "Borderland" one of Gareth's new album tracks. Enjoy !

Water & Light
Exciting times at Heading West Music just now. Gareth is in the middle of finishing his third solo album with sessions this last few weeks at The Foundry Music lab in Motherwell. To be called "Water & Light" it's due out in mid-May 2008 with a general release in December, and is shaping up to be a cracker. We've already had some sepcial guest vocalists in the studio including North East singer-songwriter Jez Lowe and the hugely talented Yvonne Lyon . Look out for sneak preview sample tracks on MySpace from 4th April onwards. We'll give you more launch plans as they develop. In the meantime you can pre-order your copy by visiting the Heading West Music shop.

Living Rooms & Celtic Connections
HAPPY NEW YEAR to all our visitors and supporters. Gareth is already out and about doing some Living Room Gigs this month. They're a wonderful informal and fun way to hear a bit more about his work and listen to the songs up close and unplugged in your own Living Room. They're really easy to set up and very reasonably priced so drop us a line on 01661854877 or use the contact section to make an enquiry about them.

Two others snippets of news - we're delighted that Gareth will be playing at the Danny Kyle Stage (Glasgow Royal Concert Hall) at the Celtic Connections Festival this Friday (18th January). He'll be doing a 5-song slot between 5-7pm so get along if you're free. And finally work on recording the new album begins on Feburary 25th at The Foundry in Motherwell. We're hoping that unlike last time the sessions stay snow-free - cold feet all round but ah it was pretty ! Bye for now.
