Gareth James, is telling a different story, he’s about the lyrics, the words that change you inside. He’s about all the battles you’ve had and all the times you tried. He’s about the times it came out wrong and he’s about the truth when it’s too hard to face. Gareth is about honesty in the face of fire. He’s about wasted time and big regrets but most and more than anything, when there’s no such thing as starting over, he’s about carrying on.

A humble but passionate advocate for South African alternative country music, Gareth James has introduced us to something that has long been calling from our own hearts: a sound that transcends the sultriest bar and conjures up that endless ribbon of open road that everyone of us wants to drive at least once in a life time.

He evokes the dream that ends where you want it to and lands in your lap, your love fulfilled. He asks the questions that have burned inside you all your life.

That’s because he carries a cross for music: Gareth started his career in rock, his transition to country brought on two years of anguish in which he waited for the break of day: Gareth James is a man who shares his place in the light because he has done
his time in the dark.

This is an album which says the day is here.
