Gareth Leach releases anticipated debut EP “Settle Like Stones


Melbourne, AUSTRALIA

Following the success of his debut single Freeway Lines, country singer/songwriter Gareth Leach returns with his first EP Settle Like Stones.  


Written, performed and produced by the multi-instrumentalist, the seven track EP features a refreshing and diverse mix of country rock and storytelling.


Settle Like Stones features guest performances from guitarist Lee “Sonnyboy” Morgan (Archie Roach, Jessica Mauboy) on Freeway Lines and new single Shoes and also spotlights on Alone Again; a powerful duet with 2012 Toyota Starmaker finalist Stephanie Jansen.


On the EP: "Settle Like Stones is a collection of my favourite tunes I’ve written over the past year, touching on the personal journeys we all make. The good, the bad, the ugly, and the sentimental moments and feelings we go through on a daily basis.”


On the songs: “I have changed a lot of the last few years. Becoming a new father and raising kids has given me new experiences to write about. The songs the EP are like markers, signposts of moments on my journey which I get to share with the world."


On the recording process: “Producing this EP has been about stepping out from the security of being tucked away behind the drums, where I have been playing and touring in bands for over a decade. Critiquing and producing yourself can be a real eye opening experience and I have learned so much about myself as both a songwriter and performer.”


In the spirit of Gareth’s DIY ethic, Settle Like Stones is independently released without the assistance of record labels and management companies.


“Gareth Leach has burst onto the Australian Country scene with his debut EP. It’s modern country at its finest. Don’t be late on this one… Get around him!”
