Gareth Asher & The Earthlings hail from where the stars shine brightly through tall trees, reaching into the unknown sky -- knowing no limits. A place where the wind blows the seeds of future life into new places; places to grow wild and grow strong-- places to learn what it is to be home.
And home is what they have found in each other. A family that learns together the way to express their passion and melancholy, strength and weakness, failure and success, through the love that they share and the music that helps them share it-- not only with each other but with everyone that they may meet on this great adventure. An adventure that we all experience together. This adventure on planet earth. We are lucky together... And together we are all Earthlings.
Come join us for our one night back home before we swing up the East Coast at the RED LIGHT CAFE! All original show! The super talented McCall will be opening the show. Don't miss this one!

On his third independent release, singer-songwriter Gareth Asher is coming to age as a writer, delivering a well-crafted and emotionally charged body of work. This new album is intensified with bold electric guitars, steady driving percussion, and balanced with lush string arrangements provided by members of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Asher recorded the album in home town Atlanta, with close friend and brilliant artist Clay Cook (Marshall Tucker Band, Zac Brown Band) once again producing and mixing.
What people are saying about Gareth:
"Gareth has the most soulful voice I have ever heard. The first time I heard his music I just had to stop and take it in. I imagine that is what it was like for those who heard Ray Charles or John Lennon for the first time." - Holly Firfer (92.9 Dave FM On-Air, Atlanta & Company)
As a touring artist, Asher has shared the stage with Shawn Mullins, Glen Phillips(o/ Toad the Wet Sprocket), Emerson Hart, Angie Aparo, Corey Smith, Sister Hazel, Collective Soul, 3 Doors Down, Steve Cropper and many more.
Born in the small town Bowdon, GA, Gareth Asher was raised on a steady diet of old school funk, rock and soul. Asher attributes many of his musical sensibilities to monumental artists like Stevie Wonder, Phil Collins, and groups like Chicago. As a writer, he respects the work of iconic performing songwriters like Jackson Browne, Otis Redding, and Don Henley and The Eagles.
"I feel like my shell is finally cracking, and the best songs are starting to emerge. All my inner most thoughts and emotions are breaking through to the surface, and insisting on a ray of light to shine down upon them", says Asher.
It all started in the fourth grade when McCall's music teacher taught her three chords on the guitar...
Since then, she has gone on to win 6 singer/songwriter competitions and perform on stages all over the United States. Her debut EP, "Can't Keep Waiting" was released October 2014, and the next project is in the works.
Born and raised in Atlanta, it was here she developed her musical tastes and interests. McCall is keen to point out that everything she listens to directs her musical development in some way. However, she would certainly include Hozier, Alessia Cara, ZZ Ward and Elton John as some of her biggest influences.
