This singer, songwriter and evangelist is based in London and 'All The People' is Gareth's full length debut, available as a free download as well as a charged for physical CD. Previously the EPs 'Face To Face' and 'Counting Sheep' showed Gareth to be an excellent songsmith with something of a Celtic feel. The opening track "Revive Me" and "Our God Of Love" will remind the listener of bands such as the Electrics with their Irish/Scottish tinge, while my favourite, "Stumbling Block", is an engaging mix of clever lyrics, violin, mandolin and a hint of Deacon Blue-style vocals aided by wife Sarah. In the wonderfully atmospheric song "Will You Come" he states he "will sing to all who will listen." Gareth, we are listening!
