Raised on a steady diet of Jimi Hendrix, John Mayer, Alice In Chains and The Black Keys, Tacoma’s Nolan Garrett is just as accomplished as a fiery axe-slinger as he is an ambitious songwriter. A mere moment’s scan of his unique artistic amalgamation suggests an artist on the verge of something extraordinary as personified in his gutsy blend of timeless rock n’ roll, sophisticated pop, elements of grunge and garage rock, doused with just the right of amount of blues on the fire.
For an artist of any age, it’s surely an electrifying dichotomy, but considering Garrett is a mere 16-years-old, it suggests he’s nothing short of a modern day prodigy. Yet even with youth on his side, the versatile performer is already a veteran of sorts who first started playing at age 8, took to the professional stage a year later and is currently criss-crossing the Northwest as a weekend warrior while he maintains a straight A average at the highly coveted Tacoma School of the Arts.
Nolan’s first single for London Tone Music is a steamy rockin’ blues with socially conscious lyrics way beyond his years called, Step Back.
