The funny thing about musicians, is that when it comes to their music, they can bare their soul, but when it comes to interviews they stay guarded! Although he might be of a few words below, Gareth Asher is no stranger to the Atlanta music scene, and has shared the stage with Shawn Mullins, Glen Philips, Emerson Hart, Angie Aparo, Steve Cropper to name a few. In August of 2011, an Indie film director, Shayde Christian, saw Gareth’s set at Eddie’s Attic. Christian was so taken by Gareth, he has scrapped ALL of the music for his up and coming feature film, Painting in the Rain, to insert 7 Gareth songs including, “Safe and Sound,” a haunting duet. He joined us for our 5GB series before his show on Thursday at Eddie’s Attic.
