Gareth Koch is an ARIA Award winning performer, composer and songwriter. Best-selling classical & flamenco guitarist with the ABC Classics label and contemporary songwriter with Planet/MGM.
Studied classical music at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and the Academies of Music in Madrid and Vienna. Holds a PhD in Music and has lectured across Australian and European Universities and Music Academies. As a classical guitarist and founding member of the award-winning Saffire - Australian Guitar Quartet Gareth has toured Australia, Europe, Asia and the US. His original compositions have been APRA nominated in the ‘Best Instrumental Work’ category and in 2003 he won an ARIA for ‘Best Classical Album’.
In contemporary song-writing Gareth draws inspiration from medieval music to post-modern psychedelia, with every imaginable influence in between. Koch has an immediately recognisable musical identity, a new sound and aesthetic that comes with a fluid movement across genres. His output reflects a honed classical background whilst having keen contemporary sensibilities. The result is an array of catchy pop tunes, soulful ballads, country, blues grooves and rock songs.
