Organic signs Stringdusters' Garrett
Tuesday, July 23, 2019
– The Infamous Stringdusters' Jeremy Garrett has signed with Organic Records to release a solo album of his own original music.
"I'm overjoyed to sign with Organic Records and to work not only with some of the very best in the business, but also with one of my very good friends and frequent writing colleagues, Jon Weisberger, as he enters his new role at the label," said Garrett.
His next album will be "Circles," but no release date was given.
Garrett's solo work is characterized by his layering of looping of multiple instruments and vocals he creates as a one-man show.
"Circles, which I produced with Grammy award-winning engineer/producer Billy Hume, is a project that reflects the evolution and diversity of my solo performances over the last couple of years, and I can't wait to start getting this music out to listeners," said Garrett.

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Turner pleases the traditionalists
Josh Turner is a hard-working citizen, a man of faith and a loyal father and husband. He also happens to be one of the youngest members inducted to the Grand Ole Opry.

Concert Review: Not much really changes for LaFarge
Just one look at the stage made it clear that this was not going to be a typical night with Pokey LaFarge. There were only a few guitars to be seen, which meant that LaFarge was going it alone.
"I've been touring for years with a band," LaFarge told perhaps a few hundred people before he had even played a note.... »»»
