Kevin Garrett twists up soulful tradition with singer-songwriter spirit, lush instrumentation, and alternative adventurousness. The Pittsburgh-born GRAMMY® Award-nominated artist, multi-instrumentalist, and producer echoes the kind of grit meant to be smoothed out only on vinyl and emanates the ambition of a 21st century festival draw.
In 2015, Kevin hit the road with Irish sensation James Vincent McMorrow and unveiled his debut EP, Mellow Drama, which attracted acclaim from The Fader, Complex, Vibe, and Pancakes & Whiskey. It also yielded a hit with the singles "Coloring" racking up 30 million-plus streams. Beyond gigs alongside everyone from X Ambassadors to Alessia Cara and electrifying festival performances at Bonnaroo, Latitude & Longitude, and Sasquatch, he contributed "Pray You Catch Me" to Beyoncé's blockbuster Lemonade, sharing co-writing and co-production with the superstar and James Blake. 2017 saw him sell out his first headline tour before spending 2018 recording the new album with producer Brad Cook [War On Drugs, Bon Iver] in Durham, NC. Kevin's brand of bold and blunt soul fully unfolded on his 2019 full-length debut, HOAX [AWAL].
Kevin is set to release his newest body of work, his Made Up Lost Time EP, on February 21st.
