Gareth James LIVE at Café Roux – Cape Town: May 19, 2018
Gareth James and his band will be performing their original songs at Cape Town’s Café Roux on Saturday the 19th of May.
This is a not to be missed showcase of his americana/country and latest bro-country release, featuring the track “Her Playground” which just launched on iTunes.
Stark Urban Country Rap
This is a song crucified on the very axis of life, somehow containing the dynamic tension we all face in relationships, the loop in which we either lose or win. Gareth James is telling a different story, he’s about the lyrics, the words that change you inside. He’s about all the battles you’ve had and all the times you failed when you tried. He’s about the times it came out wrong and he’s about the truth when it’s too hard to face. Her Playground features an unreleased Cape Town rapper who makes his debut on this stage.
The three piece Gareth James band will also perform other tracks from the same album and your old time favourites will be there too.
A humble but passionate advocate for South African alternative country music, Gareth James has introduced us to something that has long been calling from our own hearts: a sound that transcends the sultriest bar and conjures up that endless ribbon of open road that everyone of us wants to drive at least once in a life time.
He evokes the dream that ends where you want it to and lands in your lap, your love fulfilled. He asks the questions that have burned inside you all your life.
That’s because he carries a cross for music: Gareth started his career in rock, his transition to country brought on two years of anguish in which he waited for the break of day: Gareth James is a man who shares his place in the light because he has done his time in the dark.
**PLEASE NOTE: DINNER FROM 6.30/7PM. SHOW AT 8.30PM
