Based out of Los Angeles, Garrett Hazen has, according to Surviving the Golden Age, bridged the gap between indie rock and tweed 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 rock bands like Led Zeppelin, Arcade Fire, Bob Dylan, Radiohead, while also drawing inspiration from jazz musicians such as the great, Wes Montgomery.
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 artists 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 Spoon Fed EP, Monako Davis' All Your Heaven, And Your Hurt, and is featured on the upcoming release for The TVC's new EP, A West Coast Vision. Garrett's second release, Gold (EP), was recorded in Skid Row at Sun Rooms Studios. Featuring a blend of indie-rock, experimental sounds, and rhythms and grooves reminiscent of the late 70's, Gold packs in a lot of attitude in a 3 song EP.
