Indie Sydney artist Gareth Jay is back with a hauntingly beautiful track dubbed ‘Run To Me.’

‘Run To Me’ was a one man show, with Gareth writing the lyrics, playing the guitar, ukulele, bass, drums topped up with his soothing vocals.

This track is about when relationships are good and healthy but you still have down times, tired times and moments when life feels hard.

“In those times you need someone to support you and this song is just kind of a reminder of that,” said Gareth Jay.

“I channel Otis redding and The Staple Singers, you can hear it particularly in the bass,vibe and harmonies in this track,” he said.

Gareth’s on a new musical journey to create something different. His new direction of music has seen his previous track ‘The Fox and The Rabbit’  being played across local radio stations and blogs. The track was instantly embraced by Triple J’s Roots n All. 

On why Gareth decided to change his stye he said that, “I found record labels trying to put me in a box, and I felt that was really restrictive to my process so have decided to embrace being an independent creative,”

“With encouragement from my friends and family I’m taking some risks and opening up myself to showcasing the music and stories that I am creating; however they come. And, with that change I’ve never produced more content,” he said.

If I’m not writing or listening to music my favourite past-time would be napping. Sometimes people find me eating dumplings, lurking at gigs, or stalking musicians to get some information from them. I mean interviewing them. I survived living in London during the winter (twice) and now I am back down-under in Sydney faffing by the beach and dreaming of London.
