EVER-POPULAR muso, Garth Taylor, will grace the Guild Theatre stage on July 20 and 22.
The talented SA Music Awards (Sama) nominated artist is celebrating 20 years in the music industry.
Taylor said that he was very grateful to his family, friends, and fans for their support.
“I want to take my fans on a journey from the very first song I wrote and the influences I had at the time of each song,” Taylor said.
Taylor started playing the guitar at the tender age of seven – and was tutored by his mother.
His talent shone in 1998 with his debut single, Why, being played on radio.
He will perform a variety of music from his many albums over the years.
His publicist, Monica Steyn said it was his attention to detail and passion for what he did, that were always evident in his career.
“Garth had a start in life that would have broken many. It was his guitar, a pen, and paper that have been the only constants throughout his life,” said Steyn.
Campaigns against abuse and bullying of children are causes close to Taylor’s heart, having grown up in several children’s homes.
“I used to be the orphan dreaming of being a pop-star and having my photo taken with a famous musician. I then got to become the musician who brought joy and laughter to orphans and have them look at me with the same hopes and dreams that I had as a child,” Taylor said.
East London Childhood Cancer Foundation (CHOC) regional manager, Debbie Kleinenberg is delighted that Taylor will sing for their cause.
“This is such a lovely way to spend your Sunday afternoon, listening to his amazing voice and relaxing before the start of the new week,” said Kleinenberg.
All proceeds from the Sunday concert will go to assist CHOC East London with their fundraising. Tickets are available on Computicket at R120 and the concert will start at 3pm.
