London-based singer/producer/multi-instrumentalist Jack Garratt combines electric guitar, drum machines, keyboards, and an R&B-friendly falsetto to fashion smooth, club-ready electro-R&B anthems. Garratt released his self-written, self-performed, self-recorded, and largely self-produced debut album Phase in February to critical acclaim and was awarded triple j’s feature album. The beardy multi-instrumentalist has been dubbed ‘one to watch’ thanks to a support slot with Mumford & Sons, festival appearances at the Apple Music Festival and Radio 1’s Future Festival, sold-out shows in the UK and US and his breakout single ‘Weathered’, which was a favourite of Beats 1 host Zane Lowe and triple j. Garratt was the winner of the critics choice category at the 2016 Brit Awards and BBC Music Sound Poll of 2016.
Critically acclaimed new singer / songwriter Kacy Hill, hit the Top #5 on Spotify’s Global Viral Top 50 chart with her single Foreign Fields. Kacy wrote the stripped down, airy tune with British producer and artist Jack Garratt…props to famed producer and Def Jam co-founder Rick Rubin for introducing them to each-other in the studio! Kacy characterized the song as about “exploring new space in your life and surrounding yourself with people that encourage you to push past a comfort zone.” As a member of the Vanessa Beecroft-curated performance troupe for Kanye West’s Yeezus tour, later signing with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. music label, was named as one of Dazed & Confused’s most exciting creative artists for 2015 and was recently listed as one of VOGUE 44 stars-to-watch in 2016.
