"Gareth’s live performances have always knocked me out! His passion and emotion have absolutely been captured on ‘I’m The Earth’…can’t stop listening to it!”
-Dean Roland (Collective Soul)

"Gareth has the most soulful voice I have ever heard. The first time I heard his music I just had to stop and take it in. I imagine that is what it was like for those who heard Ray Charles or John Lennon for the first time."
- Holly Firfer (92.9 Dave FM On-Air, Good Day Atlanta)

“I heard him from the on-air studio and immediately had to come out to our green room to check out the awesome sound I was hearing…which doesn’t happen often for me.”
-Chris Rozak (WEND Midday On-Air Talent)

"Gareth is one of a kind. A lot of artists are just good at one thing; either they're a great singer, a great musician, a great songwriter or a great performer. But Gareth shines in all of these aspects. When you’re listening to his music, it's like he's telling you a story of your life and when you see him perform, you can see the passion he has for his music. Everyone should give him a chance, because it's only a matter of time before he's up there with guys like Ray LaMontagne and Amos Lee."
- Mark Gray (WRFX Asst. Promotion Director)

“When you listen to Gareth Asher or see him perform live, it’s a religious experience. The lyrics he sings and the music he plays are the verses that we all feel, but are not able to express. He’s a truly captivating artist & musician.”
-Shelia Taylor (WEND Promotions Director)

“Gareth has the unique ability walk on stage with nothing more than a guitar and create an entire event. You can’t help but be blown away by his pure, raw talent.”
-Dutch (Everything Alternative 99X)

“Gareth is as good a singer songwriter there is...His songs are sung with passion and pain that transcends the audience into relatable places in their mind. Gareth's vocal ability sets him apart from others in this genre, and will soon be known nationally as he is locally - that he is a true talent!!”
-Dave Clapper (Director of Marketing/Promotions -Cox Radio Atlanta)

“When you mix his voice, look, stage presence and charisma~ Gareth Asher is the ENTIRE package.
-Nick Tapp (WSRV Promotions Director)

Gareth Asher – I'm the Earth

Usually armed only with an acoustic guitar and his voice, Gareth Asher is a rising talent in the Atlanta club scene, gaining many a kind word from Atlanta area radio stations and magazines along the way. In the relatively overcrowded scene of earnest singer-songwriters, the immeasurable passion and sincerity that Asher puts into every single note puts him head and shoulders above the guitar-toting masses.
After gaining a fair amount of acclaim as a member of the former modern rock group Illbreak, including a few opening slots for Three Doors Down, Asher has shed the modern rock tag with gusto and strives more for the acoustic here on I'm the Earth.
From start to finish, Asher's album is impressive to say the least. He's one of the rare artists with the ability to make you feel exactly as he does with each song. Lyrically, musically and vocally, Asher is the real deal. Sure, there's a million Howie Days and John Mayers and such out there. The earnest-boy-with-a-guitar idea is not new ground, but there's something genuine in Asher's voice that would make you call John Mayer a filthy liar. There's something genuine in his lyrics that would make you want to tell Chris Carrabba to keep it in the circus. Something that makes you want to smack Jason Mraz with a rolled up newspaper and firmly shout "No." The emotions engrained in each strum of the guitar and each word sung are as clear and powerful on the album as if he were sitting next to your stereo.
I've yet to see the opening track "My Love" not cause a new listener to shed at least one tear. "Maybe Things Would Be Different" is a dark almost-love song worthy of any compilation on the matter you could create. From the epic "Highest High" to the happy "Nothing But Sunshine," Asher has laid down the ground work for a fantastic musical career. Four and a half stars easy.
