Known for his work in the Grammy award-winning band, The Infamous Stringdusters, Jeremy Garrett has become recognized as an innovative fiddler at the forefront of progressive bluegrass – and now, beyond its borders. As Garrett continues to expand his musical horizons and interests, he has signed with Organic Records to release a solo album of his own original music.
“I’m overjoyed to sign with Organic Records, and to work not only with some of the very best in the business, but also with one of my very good friends and frequent writing colleagues, Jon Weisberger, as he enters his new role at the label,” says Garrett.
Garrett’s solo work is characterized by his layering of looping of multiple instruments and vocals he creates as a one-man show. His personal appearances have become riveting displays of virtuosic playing and soulful singing, weaving full tapestries of sound that take different turns with each song. This comes through on his upcoming album, Circles.
“Circles, which I produced with Grammy award-winning engineer/producer Billy Hume, is a project that reflects the evolution and diversity of my solo performances over the last couple of years, and I can’t wait to start getting this music out to listeners!” says Garrett.
Look for new single releases from Jeremy Garrett’s Circles, coming soon.
