STORY

Garrett went from busking and living out of a backpack to tallying over 50 million worldwide streams and

performing sold-out shows alongside Damien Rice and Ziggy Alberts.

He landed a sync in Hollywood blockbuster ‘Bad Moms’ and his single ‘Take It Slowly’ has surpassed 13.5
million Spotify streams. His 2019 EP, ‘Distant Land’ and 2020 EPs, ‘s. hemisphere’ and ‘n. hemisphere’,

earned the endorsement of triple j, Rolling Stone and Beatroute Magazine.

At the same time, he cemented himself as an in-demand, platinum-award winning producer. This year,
triple j dubbed him as the “Producer and musician behind some of the most prominent sounds coming out
the Byron Bay's booming buskers scene”. He worked with Ziggy Alberts on his 2016 EP ‘Four Feet in the
Forest’ and his 2018 album ‘Laps Around the Sun’ (both certified Platinum in Australia) and has also
worked with Julia Stone, Pete Murray, Kyle Lionhart, Riley Pearce, Pierce Brothers, Jack Botts and more.


2020 has seen Garrett release a pair of sister EPs; ‘s. hemisphere’ and ‘n. hemisphere’ – which will

culminate in an album release on December 4 th 2020, titled ‘hemispheres’.

2021 will see Garrett play iconic Australian festival Byron Bay Bluesfest with the likes of Bon Iver and The

Teskey Brothers, as well as tour the UK/Europe with the Pierce Brothers.

I most definitely look at these songs as paintings,” he affirms. “It’s totally a mad scientist situation. I
blend sounds together in order to aesthetically serve the song. The writing, engineering, and producing
are all married. I’ll tinker with a track for two months. I look at it, walk away, and come back as if I were
leaving a painting on a canvas. The chords, melodies, and moods are like images to me. I don’t use
instruments for genre, but rather for frequencies, tones, and cadences. Getting the chance to see different
parts of the world and hear so many stories inspired some of the insights and colours I wanted to use.
