Based out of Los Angeles, Garrett Hazen has, according to Surviving the Golden Age, bridged the gap between indie rock and twee pop. And he, "...is reminiscent of bands like Los Campesinos or The New Pornographers."
Garrett Hazen grew up with eclectic taste for the sounds of Led Zeppelin, Arcade Fire, Bob Dylan, Radiohead, and Wes Montgomery. Born 2 minutes after his fraternal twin Kent, in Orange, CA, the Hazen twins eventually became series regulars on the Roseanne show as babies.
At the age of 10, Garrett picked up the guitar, and immediately became obsessed. By 17, Garrett was forming his own bands, as well as appearing on stage with jazz greats such as Gordon Goodwin, Don Menza, and Tom Kubis.
Garrett’s first sessions for his solo work began in the summer of 2016, with producer Spencer Riley. As a songwriter, Garrett has contributed to Spencer Riley's upcoming solo EP, as well as Monako Davis' All Your Heaven, And Your Hurt. Garrett is preparing to release his second EP, GOLD on March 16th of 2018.
