Passionate vocals, gripping lyrics, and an earthy, optimistic tone are the heart and soul of Gareth Asher’s sophomore effort, I’m The Earth.
A percussive, acoustic rock album capable of captivating audiences of all genres, I’m The Earth is as pure and emotional as it gets.
With thick layers of acoustic guitars fronted by Asher’s trademark passionate, in-your-face voice and a tender ear for harmonious melodies, Asher is able to combine the smarts of Glen Phillips with the boldness of Jeff Buckley. All while crafting a tightly produced, acoustic rock album appealing to indie, folk, and pop fans alike.
To put it another way, Asher’s I’m The Earth takes you to a place where the lines between reality and fantasy mesh. The cycle of life is evolving from song to song, and your ears are witness to this everyday miracle. From the evocative melodies in songs such as My Love and Enchanted, to the high-energy Call Me Out…to the radio friendly Crave…to the rootsy, Americana feel of Highest High, Gareth Asher’s I’m The Earth takes you on a ride you’ll never forget.
Here is an album that is full of optimism, and the kind of songs that can lift your spirits and stir your soul. This is the album you always crave after the dark times seem to be setting in. This is the genius of Atlanta’s premier singer/songwriter Gareth Asher.
“I heard him from the on-air studio and immediately had to come out to our green room to check out the awesome sound I was hearing…which doesn’t happen often for me.” -Chris Rozak (WEND Midday On-Air Talent)
"Gareth is one of a kind. A lot of artists are just good at one thing; either they're a great singer, a great musician, a great songwriter or a great performer. But Gareth shines in all of these aspects. When you’re listening to his music, it's like he's telling you a story of your life and when you see him perform, you can see the passion he has for his music. Everyone should give him a chance, because it's only a matter of time before he's up there with guys like Ray LaMontagne and Amos Lee."
- Mark Gray (WRFX Asst. Promotion Director)
“When you listen to Gareth Asher or see him perform live, it’s a religious experience. The lyrics he sings and the music he plays are the verses that we all feel, but are not able to express. He’s a truly captivating artist & musician.”
-Shelia Taylor (WEND Promotions Director)
“Gareth has the unique ability walk on stage with nothing more than a guitar and create an entire event. You can’t help but be blown away by his pure, raw talent.”
-Dutch (Everything Alternative 99X)
“Gareth is as good a singer songwriter there is...His songs are sung with passion and pain that transcends the audience into relatable places in their mind. Gareth's vocal ability sets him apart from others in this genre, and will soon be known nationally as he is locally - that he is a true talent!!”
-Dave Clapper (Director of Marketing/Promotions -Cox Radio Atlanta)
“When you mix his voice, look, stage presence and charisma~ Gareth Asher is the ENTIRE package.
