Gareth Dickson - Noon (New Song)

I would like to introduce you to Gareth Dickson. If you dont know him & you like Nick Drake prepare to be very excited! He has played for many years with Vashti Bunyun as her guitarist but in 2009 he released his first proper album - 'Collected Recordings' Its a beautiful mellow, summer evening record with tracks that could well be believed to have been written and performed by Nick Drake. To quote:
“A solo artist singing and playing acoustic guitar – sometimes effected, his songs slip between a beautifully sparse, emotive fragility (recalling Nick Drake, Bert Jansch, etc.) and denser instrumentals (recalling Eno or Labradford). Very cool stuff.” Fatcat Records
Here's the twist, Gareth is so good at playing and singing like Nick Drake he has a project where he 'very rarely' plays Nice Drake Live, called 'Nicked Drake'
Check out the videos below to see how good he really is!
More coming...
