Gareth Icke is a singer songwriter and author. His first band was called 'Kody', with whom he toured the UK and America. The band received ecstatic reviews and played to packed out venues until they split up, with Gareth continuing as a solo recording artist.
His first solo album 'It Gets Worse At Night' was released in 2009 and showed off Gareth's considerable songwriting talents. Produced by Dan Swift (Kasabian, Snow Patrol, Aqualung), the albums lead single 'Its Feels Like A Race' received national air play, and Gareth Icke toured the album across the UK and Europe.
Gareth’s new album, 'A Brand New Battle' is released on the 17th of September, and its first single, 'Remember Who You Are' has been positively received by fans and music press alike.
What they said .....
“his voice is both soothing and plaintive and moves most powerfully when the music falls back into the quietude of simple guitar picking for accompaniment; creating the kind of ambivalent tension reminiscent of a Lord Byron poem or a David Sedaris essay. Even when he’s singing about the kind of loneliness that gets worse at night, there’s a strange hopefulness in his voice that reassures things will all work out alright in the end.” - Jasmine Anderson , Biocritics.
“The problem with being a failed musician is that whenever you find yourself listening to pure talent you feel jealous and perhaps a little nauseous as you realise that you’ll never be that good. As a failed musician, when I listen to Gareth Icke, I feel like I’m in the throes of death…..but it’s a happy death.” - Alex Baker, KERRANG!
''A bitter sweet album full of emotion and thought provoking lyrics, Gareth proves here that he is a major emerging songwriter, his music can stand up against the biggest names in the industry''- Mimkins CoolManchester
