The ideology at the core of GARETH EMERY’s major-league triumphs in 2015 and the principle that is at the heart of making 2016 his best yet. Performing at the European Olympic Games’ closing ceremony, hosting a festival stage at Australia’s Stereosonic and releasing the ‘Drive: Refueled’ remix album; it’s hard to imagine a year filled with such accolades barely comparing to what 2016 has to offer. Yet, the new-year has immediately been kicked into overdrive by way of GARETH’s new album 100 Reasons To Live.
Following previous studio albums Northern Lights and DRIVE, British electronic music pioneer (who now resides in Los Angeles) GARETH EMERY once again delivers a body of work worth celebrating. Full of songs where the lyrics have meaning and the productions have purpose, 100 Reasons To Live is an endeavor that spotlights well-known names from many different genres among lesser-known, no-less-gifted artists.
Fans have already gotten a taste of the album with U.S. radio smash “Hands” with Alastor feat. London Thor and “Until We Meet Again” with Ben Gold. From “We Were Young” with recent X Factor USA winners Alex and Sierra, “Make It Happen” holding the rocky edge of Lawson and “Save Me” with familiar face Christina Novelli (“Concrete Angel”) to heart-wrenching lead single “Reckless” featuring London-based acoustic duo Wayward Daughter, 100 Reasons To Live builds on the momentum generated by EMERY himself over the years.
Add to that the meteoric rise of radio show/hot EDM brand ‘Electric For Life’, GARETH’s continual world-wide stage domination and his mastery of the most efficacious ways to captivate his global audience with, there’s no denying that EMERY is indeed changing perception of music.
