GARRETT KATO

I was born in British Columbia, Canada at the tender age of 0 and started playing music in my teens. At age 23, I relocated myself to Byron Bay, Australia and performed everywhere.

Two years later I released an EP called “Love. Murder. Songs.” and toured Western Canada, England (performing at Bestival) and The East Coast of Australia playing premier festival such as Bluesfest and Splendour in the Grass.

2014 was spent recording my new album “That Low and Lonesome Sound”. Recording took place at my home studio in Byron Bay and other various locations. The recording process became an obsession, with tireless nights demoing and experimenting with both hard and ethereal sounds. This new record marks a turning point for myself both as a singer songwriter and a producer and a new father (also why it took so fucking long).

The first single “UFOS” is a far cry from my pervious folk country releases. Pulsating guitars and keys open the song with a haunting casscade of reverberant vocals echoing throughout the mix. Armed with heavy bass and glitchy drums “UFOS” is a story told in first person of a chance meeting with an extraterrestrial being.
