Gaz Bailey and The Banned Merch

"Wow,  What a Voice!"   Roundsound Radio

"Great Show!"  Dave Sharp (The Alarm)

Winner of Lifeyouchoose Battle of The bands 1

"Expectional"  The Shift Radio

"This Guy has an amazing Style, he is a constant encouragement to our Band!"  Stephen McKee -Memphis


​"This is Gaz's debut single and will be released on 14th October. Keep an eye out for Gaz in the coming months because he seems to have a knack of writing catchy, singalong choruses. And Untold Road is certainly no different with a simple acoustic guitar, a bit of percussion and some excellently crafted violins. There is definitely a nod to The Beatles but I can also hear a cross between David Bowie and Richard Ashcroft in the vocal style and let's be honest, if there are 3 artists to be influenced by, these would be high up on anybody's list.
All in all, a highly creditable debut single and I'll put money down that you'll be singing "On this ro-oooooooad, ro-ooooad" by the time the second chorus comes round. Well done."  Unarmed Bandit



"This original song is a masterpiece of songwriting with a masterful violin composition ”
– Untold Road by Gaz Bailey –   The Shift

"I love the Raw quality,  Very Lennonish :)  I can imagine Thousands in the crowd singing his tunes"      Sue Harrison
