FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Nashville, TN (June 23rd, 2014) - - Gifted 16-year-old Native American flutist, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, songwriter, and producer, Gareth Laffely (known as Gareth), has been invited by the Native American Nations to perform at the Tennessee State Capitol, House of Representatives Chamber during the Native American Commemoration Ceremony on Friday, June 27th, 2014. The historic event will commemorate sincere regret by the Tennessee General Assembly to all Native American Nations affected by the Indian Removal Act of 1830.

Gareth has been capturing much fan excitement with his music and live performances across the United States and Canada. He is completely self taught on the Native American flute and combines rock, pop, and world music into a revolutionary style all his own. He released his debut album entitled, "The Journey", on July 17th, 2013, (whose title song was written to honor those who lost their lives on the Trail of Tears) and was recorded with two-time GRAMMY Award nominated hit songwriter and Dove Award winning producer Robert White Johnson (Celine Dion, the Beach Boys, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Cheap Trick, .38 Special), and GRAMMY Award winning engineer, Gary Dales. Listen to Gareth's single "The Journey" on SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/garethlaffely/the-journey

Gareth's recent participation in a GRAMMY U Amplifier contest, sponsored by the Recording Academy and Hyundai Motors, where he finished in 3rd position for popular fan voting and several TV and on-air radio appearances have only helped to solidify his popularity. He is the youngest member of the Nashville Chapter of the Recording Academy. He takes an "anti-bully" message into schools across the country. Also performing during the event will be The Blessed Blend, Ryan Little Eagle Molina, along with Native American dancers and drummers.

On May 27th, 2014 the Tennessee General Assembly press office released the following:
