GAZ, A.k.a Hartlepool’s Gaz Price is a 26-year-old brutally honest singer-songwriter that is passionate about the town he was brought up in; the passion that shines through Hartlepool, and their dedication to music, is what inspires Gareth in his songwriting.
Writing hard-hearted songs about life, his upbringing and his surroundings, Gareth has been a large part of the open mic scene in Hartlepool for years, fine-tuning his craft and honing his skills while growing his fanbase and fame locally, with the release of his new single, ‘Years From Now’, he was determined to branch out right across the North East as Gaz Price has dreams of international success, but knows he must take it one step at a time.
Gaz Price was brought up on punk-rock music of the ‘80s, with his Dad a huge fan of The Clash and The Sex Pistols, and when he was 10, he was inspired to pick up a guitar after watching The Stone Roses and Oasis on TV. Many do this, but few continue and persevere to the point where they are the genuine article.
In his own words, GAZ noted: “If I could get somewhere between a Gallagher or Billie Joe Armstrong, I would be happy.”
Having played at the likes of The Cluny in Newcastle and even The Cavern Club in Liverpool, as well as well-respected venues in Hartlepool such as The Pot House and other great venues GAZ has the drive, passion, and sound to play any stage and make it his own.
More importantly, Gaz Price has something to say and that something is worth listening to.
