In 2013, after they disbanded, not content with being a perpetual guitarist for hire, Garrett began working on his own songwriting style and sound. After disciplining himself behind the scenes for a few years, he honed and developed his act by doing over 350 live performances in 2016 and 2017.
This gave him the confidence to finally record his music, and 2018 saw him enter the studio and track 4 songs that would become his debut EP, Melody. It was released on June 6th 2018 on all platforms. This was a huge personal achievement for him, having nearly completely written, arranged, performed, recorded and produced it all himself. It was mixed and co-produced by Peter Eades (Finbar Furey) and mastered by Billy Farrell (The Corrs, Ryan Sheridan).
Garrett then recruited some local musicians to help bring his songs to life at live shows, and they have done over 120 performances in the last 10 months. Together, they have released two singles: "Breakaway" in January 2019, and "Give a Little" in June 2019. They sold out both single launch gigs.
Garrett is constantly writing new material, and plans to release more singles as soon as possible.
