About Gareth Dunlop
Belfast singer and songwriter Gareth Dunlop had his heart set on music from a young age. After an initial rejection from music college because he couldn’t read music notation, a high school teacher who believed in him taught Gareth over the summer & he was accepted – soon after claiming Young Songwriter of the Year in Belfast & earning him an invite to Nashville, collaborating with everyone from Tim McGraw & Faith Hill to T.I. and John Oates – who called him “the real deal.” Gareth’s new album Animal, is out now.
