Garrett Whitney and the Outlaw Gruntry Band are the hypothetical result of a one night stand between Seattle, WA and Austin, TX. Meshing the influences of grunge, outlaw country and classic rock into what they call "Gruntry music," the band stands out amongst other acts in the pacific northwest. Featuring experienced musicians well versed in metal, hard rock, classic rock, and classic country, the band delivers stunning live performances that combine the bands original material with unique takes on covers by artists such as Waylon Jennings, David Allan Coe, Guns N Roses, The Rolling Stones, Hendrix, and Tom Petty. The groups original songs are penned by vocalist and guitar player Garrett Whitney who has a knack of combing edgy, sincere, brash, humorous, and honest stories with a pop sensibility. The songs are brought to life by the incredible flavoring of lead guitarist JT Phillips whose use of the acoustic guitar combined with his mass array of effects pedals result in a country/blues based psychedelic eruption of sound. The songs are pounded and shaped by the driving consistency of the bands most metal element, Jarratt Van Dyke on drums. Adding the bottom end to the group is experienced scene veteran Dan Allen whose tasty sense of bass adds the grove to the gruntry sound. From soft, soulful ballads to heart racing rockers, Garrett Whitney and the Outlaw Gruntry Band deliver a unique yet highly palatable taste to a newly emerging resurgence of classic country music.
