Ian Ring This is the album that first introduced me to Garreth. Beautifully compelling songs of grief and healing. The Hiraeth set is exquisite.

ajatuslapsi Broke's first album that had stood way too long in my wishlist (due to being available on Spotify as well). He's easily one of my favourite contemporary pianists.

about

In June 2015 Garreth and his artist partner Anna Salzmann ran a successful crowdfunding campaign to fund a collection of Garreth's compositions featuring a series of artworks by Anna. Just after the crowdfunding campaign finished, Garreth's mother - who had suffered from depression off-and-on for almost 15 years - took her own life. The album was heavily influenced by this trauma.

Garreth subsequently wrote about the experience of losing a parent to suicide in a Facebook post that went viral and was re-published in the UK national press. This led to some work with Samaritans UK and an article published on Huffington Post for World Suicide Prevention Day 2016.
