GARETH BUSH

Western Event

Born in Halifax and having moved countless times along the East coast, Gareth Bush now resides in Toronto, Ontario as a live performer and recording artist. Since 16, Gareth has been song writing, Youtube-ing, busking, performing in local music venues and now ranks as one of Toronto’s top ranked wedding and event performers.

While he finds inspiration from the likes of John Mayer, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Lifehouse, and Mumford & Sons, Gareth has been entertaining audiences over the past decade with an extensive repertoire covering all major genres, with over 500 hit songs in his pocket.

Gareth released his debut EP “This is For Keeps” in 2013 and has since recorded two full cover albums, “Try Again” Volumes 1 & 2, which are available digitally worldwide.  Volume I includes his acoustic cover of Paramore’s “Still Into You,” which has become a popular first dance selection at weddings across the globe.

Gareth’s covers have also been featured on television and radio stations internationally. His cover of “Scream And Shout” resulted in being featured as “web celeb of the week” by Z100, the 2nd biggest pop radio station in the world, and now has over 1 million views on his Youtube channel.

Since graduating from Western University in 2014, he’s provided entertainment for hundreds of clients across Toronto’s wedding, corporate and bar/restaurant industries, including TD Bank, Fido, The World Cup Of Hockey, The CFL, The Chelsea Hotel, Western University, The Hard Rock Cafe, Rugby Canada, Kit & Ace, and many more!

 

TESTIMONIAL

“Gareth is worth every penny. He was the highlight of the night and our guests could not get enough of him. If you are considering him to perform at your wedding quit looking. I’m telling you, this is the guy.”    

– Jameel Fayad (Married 09/2014)

“The Wedding EP” is out now!

Hey Everyone!

I hope you’ve all been enjoying your fall fun with family and friends.  I have some very exciting news.  My new record, “The Wedding EP” is finally here!

Since becoming a full-time wedding singer dozens of couples have asked me to cover songs that mean a lot to their relationship, but with a slower, more romantic vibe as they walk down the aisle or have their first dance. Eventually I decided to step into the studio and share some of these songs with the rest of the world. In a way it’s a celebration of the past couple years and all the amazing people I’ve met along the way. I also included a remastered version of “Still Into You,” because I’ve heard from couples from all over the place who’ve used it in their wedding, which is what in turn inspired this record!

The Wedding EP is available now on Spotify (and many other wonderful places). It was supposed to be available on Apple Music but due to an unforeseen distribution delay it may take another day or two to pop up. Thanks to everyone who helped make this project possible.

I’m really proud of these songs, and I hope you enjoy them.

A New Year…..A New Album!

I loved 2017. I really did.

35 weddings & just under 100 shows altogether was not something I thought I’d be able to pull off with a full time job on the side. I drove all over the place, met a crazy amount of awesome people, saw more concerts in a year than ever before, and created some relationships that will help make 2018 even better.

And I haven’t mentioned the best part yet…I JUST RECORDED A NEW EP! Those following my Instagram stories (@garethbushmusic) have seen hints, but a new record is coming in the next few months. New music, new videos, the works. Finding time for the creative side has been tough to do in the last year, but I spent most of my Christmas break trying to change that.

Stay tuned, and Happy New Year!
