Garrett Hendricks is not a musician by accident. Rather, he is a direct product of his raising. Surrounded by music from a very young age, he soaked up influences ranging from country stars like Johnny Cash and Brad Paisley to rock icons such as Pearl Jam, U2, and The Rolling Stones. In addition to these musical heroes, Garrett also honed his ear for music listening to his family. With his mother a singer, along with aunts and uncles of exceptional musical ability, Garrett has had a rich base from which he could build his own talents. At eleven years old Garrett picked up the guitar and began to put chords to the early songs he had written. It was not long before these fledgling attempts at music grew into a life’s passion and dream.
In the winter of 2006, Garrett visited Nashville, Tennessee where he visited many of the famous sites and got a surprise chance to sing an impromptu Johnny Cash cover at the famed Wild Horse Saloon which only increased his yearning to play country music. While in high school, Garrett began performing his original music with his band, Live Bait. School coffee houses and “The Bathhouse” at Golden Gardens Beach in Seattle, WA were favorite venues. The band did not last but Garrett continued to pursue music.
Over the next few years Garrett continued to develop his vocal, lyrical, and guitar abilities while at the same time picking up new instruments like the banjo and mandolin. In 2010, Garrett recorded and released his first studio album, “Days of Mine”, produced by Susan Denini and engineered by Jason Shavey. Through his recording and performing experience Garrett has continued to grow as an artist and constantly challenges himself as a performer, musician, and songwriter. His intensity, dedication, and professionalism have made him a dynamic artist with a great deal of versatility and depth.
