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 on his 2019 full-length debut, HOAX [AWAL]. 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 Billboard. It also yielded a hit with the singles “Coloring” racking up 30 million-plus streams. Beyond gigs alongside everyone from Alessia Cara to Mumford & Sons 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. Now, his brand of bold and blunt soul unfolds on HOAX and singles such as “In Case I Don’t Feel” and “Faith You Might.”
