Gareth Carey grew up in Malvern, England before moving to Clonakilty, Ireland aged 12 in the year 1992. It was at this age that he began to learn the guitar. When he was 16 he studied under the tutelage of Kevyn Gammond (Robert Plant) at Kidderminster College until he was 18. In the years that followed Gareth has been session playing with almost every emerging band from the Irish and English music scene. He has toured Australia with Jeff Martin's 'Armada' and supporting acts like Public Enemy, Gomez and The Wailers! However, in the last 8 years he has channeled his creative energies and opted for the acoustic guitar as his main instrument. As a result he has embarked on recording and performing his albums 'In the Shade' and 'Cure the Fear' as well as many more songs and instrumental guitar pieces, His style both being melodic,uplifting and refreshing and one cannot miss a rich dark beauty about his music that is intriguing to say the least. His recordings so far are acoustic opus's that raise the guitar and vocals to the influences and the likeness to Nick Drake, John Martyn,Van Morrison and Bob Dylan also branching towards Instrumentalists like Preston Reed and Andy McKee.
