Made of Love
I grew up in Ireland. I moved to Chicago at age 23, having flipped a coin outside a travel agents in Dublin. My cousin and I had decided to hit the states in the summer of '95 but we forgot to discuss to which city. Heads for New York, tails for Chicago, the coin landed on tails. We didn't care since we had no clue really about the differences, that's how green we were! I gave my first performances on the subways of Chicago and soon landed a gig at the Abbey Pub on Chicago's north side. It wasn't long before I was a regular on the circuit playing 3 to 5 nights a week. A good life.. for a 23 year old! It's been 14 years since that summer and during that time I've been a waiter, barman, worked for a design firm, sold real estate, sold advertising TVs, worked for a Credit card processing Co. To mention but a few, but always, first and foremost I've been a musician. It's part of me, as undeniable as my nose! I'm a husband and father to two beautiful kids (you can see them on my album artwork) My wife and kids are my main inspiration, after that, comes family, friends and loved ones. I've been putting off recording this album for years but I've finally gotten around to doing it. I hope you can feel how just how much these people mean to me and I hope it gives you an appreciation of your own loved ones, we are all Made of Love! Gareth firstname.lastname@example.org.
