"On June 8th, the Seattle music scene was put on notice. That's when Garrett Whitney released his 9 track album, The New Age Outlaw." "Whitney’s debut album puts on full display a much desired rawness in music. I am talking about, in rawness, an extremely powerful vocalist singing about life… not only his life, but your life, my life… just life. “Forever Uncool” is but one example of this, of the true emotion and power behind the lyrics. The incredible lyrical rawness in the record might just be derived from a life of hard knocks endured and overcome by Whitney who just recently surpassed 6 months clean and sober. A true testament to the human spirit, Whitney has shown that anything is possible. He has overcome all the odds and this resonates brilliantly in his music."
"On June 11, 2013 The night of June 8th, 2013 proved to be a night of validation for one Garrett Whitney. The New Age Outlaw stepped up to the stage for his long anticipated CD release party at the one and only Louie G’s in Fife, Wa. The latest addition to the Mental Itch Records family, Whitney dumped a barrage of powerful, soulful melodies on the crowd leaving no doubt that the New Age Outlaw has arrived. His self-described ”Gruntry” style combines a brilliant mix of Country and Rock & Roll that is both incautious and straightforward." "This is one of those records you will want to…No… y0u must have. Jump on the New Age Outlaw’s wagon because this boy from Burien, WA. has big things for him on the horizon."
