Fired First - Gareth Dunlop
Our #LCM featured artist today is Belfast native Gareth Dunlop, who has spent the last few years traveling between the sister cities of Belfast and Nashville. The poetic vulnerability in his songs and distinctive, soulful voice has led to Gareth’s music being featured in a wide array of television shows including Bones, House, Lucifer, Switched at Birth, One Tree Hill, and NASHVILLE to name a few. Our LCM #SongOfTheDay is a wonderful live version of 'Fired First' taken from his superb debut album 'No.79' released in August last year. The video is taken from a Slemish Session recorded last year at the Sonic Visuals Recording Studio by Brian O'Kane.
The award winning Gareth also has his music used in major motion pictures ‘Safe Haven’ & ‘Best of Me’ as well as ‘No Postage Necessary’, which sees him make his acting debut also. His songs have been used in TV commercials for Disney, Subaru, Discover Ireland and many more. Over the years Gareth has toured in the UK and US opening for a diverse group of artists including Van Morrison, The Stereophonics, James Morrison and many more.
