i grew up on a 200-acre ranch in colorado, working for my dad as a ranch hand most of my childhood. i was and still am an avid skier, starting as a toddler. this led me to competing in the junior olympics and training for the olympic freestyle team. at age 9 i decided to pick up a guitar. immediately hooked, i started my first band at age 12 and played over 150 live shows by the time i was 17.
i left home at 17 to move to california and pursue my love for music and my love for the ocean. i’ve gotten to record, work with amazing people, play in local bands, and immerse myself in california’s music and surf cultures. my surfing ventures started when i was 11 on the east coast, and have taken me to incredible places and helped me meet even more incredible people. these passions have become the inspiration for the other.
now 24, i’ve learned a lot about myself, my music, and my aspirations. music and surfing have effectively become my addictions. a long lived interest in audio and recording has led me to nearing completion of my studies at berklee’s online college of music.
i’ve just released my debut album “the garrett young collective”. it features my debut single “do you hear my cries” which has reached number one on the charts at new music weekly, the independent music network, and national radio hits and “my, oh my” which has also found its way to the top of these charts. the album explores a diverse breadth of life experiences, influences, and styles of rock – old and new. i hope you dig the tunes. check back often for upcoming tour dates and new content!
