When I write its a form of expression, a way to tell myself what's going on in my life.
But once that process is done, I like to believe they are not mine anymore and people can believe and do what they want with them.
I love music that travels, its a sign of passion and truth.
Our style will be as progressive as our lives, and its the intention we hold that allows it to travel.
Gaz Brookfield is a solo acoustic musician based in Bristol. His songs are instantly accessible every-man tales of life, love and everything else in between.
Since the start of his solo career Brookfield has had the pleasure of gigging and/or touring with Frank Turner, Newton Faulkner, The Levellers, The Ataris, Mike Herrera (MXPX), Vinnie Caruana (The Movielife), Jonah Matranga, I Am Kloot,Miles Hunt, Dodgy, Jim Lockey and The Solemn Sun, Dave McPherson, and many more.
He recently secured an endorsement deal with Godin/Seagull guitars.
In 2010 he won Acoustic Magazine's Singer Songwriter of the year competition, earning him, among other prizes, a slot on the Big Top stage at the Beautiful Daysfestival. This led to loads of other festival appearances over that summer, and bookings for even more in 2011 and 2012, firmly cementing him as a regular on the UK festival circuit.
In December 2011, he became the first and only unsigned solo act to sell out The Fleece, Bristol. He has done this twice more since then.
Gaz recently toured the UK's O2 Academies with The Levellers, where he broke all the venue records for numbers of albums sold by a support act every night (upwards of 60 albums sold per night). This secured him yet more tour dates with them in Europe in May 2013 and the UK in June 2013.
With over 900 gigs under his belt to date, he continues to tireless tour the UK, proving that the "journeyman" title is more than a simple metaphor.
