Hartlepool musician Gareth Price looks to the future with release of new single
A singer and songwriter from Hartlepool who pledged that 2020 would be his year is continuing to spread his music across the North East with the release of a new single.
Gareth Price, known onstage as GAZ, has revealed plans to release his latest single Muskerz – from debut EP Northern Hospitality – soon.
Speaking to the Mail at the start of 2020, Gareth, who took some inspiration from watching The Stone Roses and Oasis when he was younger, revealed his hope for a huge 12 months ahead.
And while the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown measures may have put paid to some of his best-laid plans, Gareth has continued to pour his heart and soul into his music.
He said: “Everything is going online – I have done a couple of live streams.
“It looks like that’s the way things are going with online festivals. It’s good to be quite interactive.”
As well as the release of Muskerz as a standalone single, Gareth performed at an online gig this month for NE Volume Music Bar; a Stockton venue which was due to open in April.
While the Covid-19 outbreak has put a halt to gigs, Gareth said the opportunity to perform for people virtually has allowed him to interact with more with those who have tuned in.
Around 700 people watched his set via NE Volume online.
He added: “You have got to adapt or you won’t survive. We don’t know when it’s going to go back to normal.”
