Solo acoustic folky stuff. Somewhere between Frank Turner and Newton Faulkner, but slightly taller than both!

Biography

Gaz Brookfield is a solo acoustic artist based in Bristol.

Since embarking on his solo career in 2006 he has been fortunate enough to have played with artists such as Newton Faulkner, Frank Turner, Nik Kershaw, Nigel Clark (Dodgy), Mark Morris (Bluetones),Pete Doherty, Ben Marwood, Jim Lockey, Jake Morley, Dave McPherson (InMe) and many more.

His songs are instantly accessible, everyman tales of life, love and everything else in between. Played in a folk-ish style with occaisional use of the guitar as a percussive tool, as well as some two handed venturing around the fretboard, Gaz's simple yet poignant songwriting captures the imagination of the listener.

In 2010 Gaz won Acoustic Magazine's Beautiful Days Singer Songwriter competition, earning him, amongst other prizes, a slot on the Big Top stage at the Beautiful Days Festival.

With over 400 gigs under his belt to date, he continues to tireless tour the UK, proving that the "journeyman" title is more than just a simple metaphor.

His debut album, Trial and Error is available on Itunes and Amazon. Or you can pick up a copy at one the many gigs/festival appearances in this years tour.
