FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Nashville, TN (October 6, 2014) -- 16-year-old Native American flute sensation, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, songwriter, producer and rising star Gareth Laffely will perform live on Music City Roots, Nashville's highly acclaimed variety show on Wednesday, October 8th at 7:00pm central time. The program is filmed live at The Factory in Franklin, TN and is hosted by 2-time GRAMMY Award winning country singer/songwriter Jim Lauderdale. Music City Roots can be viewed online at the Music City Roots web site where it is broadcast worldwide (http://musiccityroots.com/) or attended live in-person at The Factory at Franklin, 230 Franklin Road, Franklin, TN. Tickets are available online at http://musiccityroots.com/tickets/.

Gareth, of Mi'kmaq/Cree descent and from Gallatin, Tennessee near Nashville, 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. His debut album entitled, "The Journey", 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. During his Music City Roots performance, Gareth will be fronting a band comprised of some of Nashville's top session musicians including Dave Cleveland-guitar, Jeff Roach-piano, Steve Brewster-drums, and Craig Nelson-bass.

Gareth's debut CD received four Indian Summer Music Award nominations. He also took part in a GRAMMY U Amplifier contest, sponsored by the Recording Academy and Hyundai Motors, where he finished in 3rd position for popular fan voting nationwide. Gareth is currently the youngest member of the Nashville Chapter of the Recording Academy.

~ "He’s a rare talent, and he’s still just a kid. Compared to a lot of what’s going on in Nashville these days, he puts the 'music' in 'Music City'. Check him out." - Rick Moore, Writer - Music News Nashville ~

Gareth is scheduled to be the 2nd performer of the evening, taking the stage around 7:20pm. Jeff Black will open the show and also appearing after Gareth will be Front Country and Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers.

Remarkably talented well beyond his years, Gareth has been touching lives and moving souls by tugging at heartstrings of many all over the world. In his short lifetime, he has shown a unique, rare, and undeniable innate ability to make others happy through his music. Whether expressing an emotion or simply conveying an important message for change, Gareth has faced sensitive issues head-on to great aplomb and challenges teens everywhere to get involved with a cause to help make their community a better place. His unquestionable sincerity and thoughtfulness in wanting to make a difference in the lives of others is truly heartfelt, infectious, and very influential and persuasive! “This Time”, features Gareth on vocal and Native American Flute and was co-written by Gareth with Robert White Johnson and Susan Oliver and promotes an anti-bully message which he takes into schools; performing and teaching what bullying is and its prevention. "Move On" was written after a dear family friend passed away from Cancer. Gareth penned the song to help the family deal with the loss. Gareth went on to gain national attention with his music video for “Move On”, and began performing at Cancer events around the country. He donates all proceeds from the song to Cancer.

~ “It’s important to be a positive role model. A change can start with one small act. Make a difference in your community. Anything is possible…you just have to dare to dream.” ~ Gareth Laffely
