Discovery: Gareth Inkster

Canadian indie singer-songwriter Gareth Inkster brings a tinge of sunshine to his own brand of rock.

By Graeme Smith

New track Last Year builds a foundation of simple rhythm guitar chords on which electric guitar solos and Gareth’s storytelling is layered. It’s a story of lost time and lost love sung philosophically and sunnily.

Inspired by George Harrison and Taylor Goldsmith, 26-year-old Gareth has a mature style which brings classic song writing to our modern age. Check out Last Year below.
