Morning Walking Club is west country based Gaz Brookfield’s 9th studio album. Written, recorded, produced and mixed by Brookfield in his own studio, and mastered by Jim Lang. Additional guitars by Chris Webb and Dan O’Dell, keys by Jon Buckett, and violin by Ben Wain.
This album is an open and honest journey into some of the issues surrounding mental health struggles, and ultimately, hopefully, the journey out of them again. It is dedicated to Gaz’s dearly departed dog, Reuben, the founding member of the morning walking club, and the goodest boy.
Upon release, Morning Walking Club hit #1 in the Bandcamp Folk charts, #1 in the Official UK Folk Album Charts, #3 in the Official Indie Breaker Charts, #6 in the Official Download Charts, #10 in the Official Indie Album Charts, and #37 in the UK Album Sales Charts. All of which was achieved without the backing of a manager, an agent, or a label. Just a man with a guitar, a van, and a steadfastly belligerent refusal to give in.
