ABOUT

Hello Everyone! My name is Garrett and 'm an American singer/songwriter/ producer. I began playing guitar in middle school, started playing in bands and recording in high school, and have stayed an active musician for most of my life. I currently live n Jacksonville, FL and attend Full Sail University for audio production. Im very passionate about what I do and am looking for likeminded people to collaborate with. I've been in bands ranging from folk to metal to shoe gaze, and really love making all types of music. I currently am working on several projects simultaneously. One is acoustic, the other is dream pop experimental. I like to make hip hop beats as well, and would love to collaborate with someone who has a voice suited for that style of music. There's not much I shy away from except for modern country and death core.

EQUIPMENT

I record at home using Logic Pro, and am currently taking courses to get Pro Tools certified. I have a Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 interface, a pair of Presonus E5 monitors, an Arturia Microbrute analog synthesizer, a Korg Electribe 2 sampler, a Novation Launchkey 25, several different microphones from TC Helicon, Shure, and Audio Technica. I play out of a Fender Blues deluxe reissue 40 watt tube amp, and a pedalboard consisting of a Boss RC-300, an Earthquaker Devices Avalanche run stereo reverb and delay pedal, an Abominable Electronics Hail Satan fuzz pedal, a wah pedal, and a delay pedal from Escape Plan pedals. As for guitars, I'm either playing my 2009 Fender Telecaster, or my 2016 Fender Mustang. I Also play a Fender Sonoran acoustic electric, and have a Squire Jaguar bass that I use in the studio as well. That's about the bulk of it. I have other random pedals and instrument laying around, but you get the idea. I mostly play guitar and sing, but have toured as a bass player for a band, and comfortable handling piano or synthesizer leads and melodies.
