The 31-year-old Gershwynn Garneth, better known as “Versatile The Cover Man”, is taking song covers to the next level with his unique, sweet and soulful sound.
Garneth, whose love for music started at a tender age after joining his primary school choir, has called the City of Roses home after moving here with his family at the age of eight. According to him, his stage name, “Versatile”, originated from his versatility and his ability to pull off any music genre.
The ambitious artist’s music career kicked off a few years ago when he co-established the well-known band, Anotha Level. He thereafter decided to move to wedding and party gigs where he landed himself a contract with Sun International Casinos.
Garneth’s goal for this year is to finish his first single as well as perform abroad. According to him, one of the main drives behind his passion for music is his musical family who inspires him daily to follow his passion.
“My number one idol is my mother, Doreen Solomon, the lead singer of the eighties group Sindicate Sisters.” He added, “It’s my passion, vision and endless love for music that pushes me.” To check out his work and the variation of genres covered by Garneth, visit his Facebook page @ Versatile The Cover Man.
The musician also has a direct messaging system in place where viewers/followers can message him to send song requests.
