His songs are instantly accessible, everyman tales of life, love and everything else in between. Played in a folk-ish style with occasional 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.

"Gaz has an honesty and charm about his performance which is seldom seen amongst his contemporaries." Will Walder, BBC Wiltshire Introducing


"You really should do yourself the favour of checking out Gaz's music." Dave Franklin, Green Man Music

Biography

Gaz Brookfield is a solo acoustic musician based in Bristol. His songs are instantly accessible every-man tales of life, love and everything else in between.


Since the start of his solo career Gaz has had the pleasure of gigging and/or touring with Frank Turner, Newton Faulkner, The Levellers, The Ataris, Mike Herrera (MXPX), Vinnie Caruana (The Movielife), Jonah Matranga, I Am Kloot, Miles Hunt, Dodgy, Jim Lockey and The Solemn Sun, Dave McPherson and many more.


He recently secured an endorsement deal with Godin/Seagull guitars.


In 2010 he won Acoustic Magazine's Singer Songwriter of the year competition, earning him, among other prizes, a slot on the Big Top stage at the Beautiful Days festival. This is where JonnoPromotions first saw Gaz play and led to loads of other festival appearances over that summer, and bookings for even more in 2011 and 2012, firmly cementing him as a regular on the UK festival circuit.


Gaz recently toured the UK's O2 Academies with The Levellers, where he broke all the venue records for numbers of albums sold by a support act every night (upwards of 60 albums sold per night). This secured him yet more tour dates with them in Europe in May 2013 and the UK in June 2013.


With over 800 gigs under his belt to date, he continues to tirelessly tour the UK, proving that the "journeyman" title is more than a simple metaphor.


His albums "Trial & Error", "Live from the west end of the M4 corridor" and "Tell It To The Beer" are available on CD and online through iTunes, 7Digital & Amazon.
