“Very beautiful music……I can thoroughly recommend this artist and album (Water & Light)”
Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2
"Water & Light may well be one of the most perfect singer-songwriter albums that you will hear this year, or indeed any year."
Mike Wilson - Folking.com
“…..intelligent songs which make a point gently and invoke sympathy……..someone to be taken seriously”."
“Some artists often sing in the name of one cause or another without conviction, but that is not the case here. The legacy of well-written, descriptive music laid down by Woody Guthrie, still lives on here in the UK”
Maverick (5 Stars)
“It’s really refreshing to hear a quality songwriter like Gareth Davies-Jones, who has something to say and says it without fuss. Moving writing … all round class musicianship.”
“Gareth is a fresh new voice … real songs with some real things to say, in a melodic and entertaining way. He’s a fine addition to the troubadour tradition.”
“Gareth Davies-Jones - currently one of the UK’s best-kept musical secrets…… powerful songs and affecting performances”
“Rich and soulful vocals, a fine ear for melody and masterful acoustic guitar playing”
Following on from the success of his 5-Star album “Water & Light” Gareth now releases a superb new radio-edit mix of his catchy and inspiring song “Breathe”. Written in response to the issue of domestic violence this is no self-indulgent lament but rather a hope-filled and mountain-top experience inducing anthem-with-a-message to lift your heart and soul. Fresh from critical acclaim after supplying the music for the 2009 Sony Radio Award winning podcast “The Prisoner And The Budgerigar” this single is set to give Davies-Jones extensive airplay in the UK and raise his profile even higher. Accompanying the release is the hauntingly beautiful “Borderland” (also taken from the album “Water & Light”) which was inspired by his adopted home county of Northumberland in the English Borders. Guitarist Magazine recently ventured so far as to say that Gareth’s music at times embodies the depth, mystery and majesty of Northumberland’s historic landscape. Have a listen and we dare you to disagree. The songs were all recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by Graeme Duffin (WetWetWet !) in the Foundry Music Lab near Glasgow in Scotland.
