The multi-instrumental layered recording style Garrett used to create this work results in lush textures that add to the intimacy of the songwriting. Yet thanks to his arsenal of devices, he's able to bring that same depth of sound to live performances, which he offers in tours built around his full-time band's schedule.
"Music and art can only evolve, so I think a natural marriage is incorporating some of this technology," says Garrett. "I'm able to create these tracks and soundscapes with all three of my instruments and vocals and just build something bigger. I really just hope people take away a really cool and deep thought-provoking vibe from this record."
Garrett's Circles has its place in a growing wave of exploratory acoustic fusion music, but stands out for the authentic songwriting at its core. The result is an unmistakably innovative collection that still finds its most enduring strength in the oldest of old-fashioned ways - by delivering deep, emotional expression straight from the heart.
