“Falling is such a beautiful song and you can really pick up the doo-wop influence and yet, they have updated the style with their own unique style. I truly don’t think I have heard anything like it today.Today, you have so many genres with cross overs and subgenres but this is the first time that I really can pick out a power pop/doo wop sound. You know what? I really like it and I can’t wait to see what is in store for us with their new album.”

“One of the latest and greatest rock groups is preparing to explode out of the sunny Southern Californian coast, led by seasoned singer-songwriter Albert Garrett. Backed by The Bad Romantics, this four piece alternative group has already pumped out three radio-worthy tracks which are blowing other local artists right out of the water. Beginning with the driving, gritty “By the Sea,” The Bad Romantics immediately demand the listener’s attention, following it up with “Back for More” and “Say to Me,” which both have “international success” written all over them. Capable of mid-tempo alternative tracks as well as distorted rock with a slightly punky edge, the world is just waiting to hear more from Garrett. Visit any of their official sites and social networking pages for some delectable streaming audio to ensure you aren’t left in the dust by this West coast phenomenon. ”

“So is Albert Garrett the frontman for an up tempo rock band, or is he the sensitive singer-songwriter spotted on YouTube with his acoustic guitar? As his performance at 3 Clubs in Hollywood with backing band The Bad Romantics on Wednesday night revealed, he’s both. Simultaneously. The live set consisted entirely of rock numbers supported by multiple electric guitars. But the singer with just the right amount of gravel in his voice managed to show two sides of his artistry at once. He has enough presence to pull off the rock frontman role, humorously introducing sentimental rocker “By The Sea” as being about a girl he met at a gas station. But there’s also enough vulnerability in Garrett’s performance to make him and his band more than merely standard rock fare – and to make him one to watch as 2012 unfolds. As of yet there’s nothing from Albert Garrett in iTunes, but you can get a taste of his music on Reverb Nation.”
