Josh Garrels Background
Josh Garrels earliest musical memory happened at the tender age of three.
He recalls, "Singing through the whole song of 'Pretty Little Bluebird' with my head inside of my family's clothes dryer because
I liked the sound of the acoustics. When I finished, I pulled my head out, and my mom stopped folding laundry and started
smiling, clapping and congratulating me for getting the words and melody right." By the age of 13, Garrels took his music
to a new level of sophistication, using his family's karaoke machine to create overdubs. He took his passion for music even
further the next year when he founded a punk band where he took the lead on vocals and played guitar.
When he was 16,
Garrels started off his summer vacation with an ankle injury from skateboarding. Stuck on crutches for the whole summer, Garrels
used his time wisely and learned how to craft hip-hop beats. Garrels references the time as when his passion for recording
and production started and his aspirations for being a pro-skater ended.
From the very beginning of his career, Garrels
has selected to record, mix, produce and distribute records without any help from a record label. Lo-fi bedroom recordings
culminated into Stonetree (2002); Underquiet (2003); and Over Oceans (2006).
Jacaranda arrived in 2008, and the following
year, Garrels completed the EP Lost Animals.
In 2010, Garrels and his family moved to Portland, Oregon. His new Pacific
Northwest surroundings inspired many of his works, including Love & War & the Sea in Between. Garrels said, "The evergreens,
mist, rain, rocky coast and stretches of uninhabited woods feel wild and untamed. I think the terrain also influences the
area's culture and spirituality. Living here has deeply affected me and my work."
That same year, he worked with Mason
Jar Music, a Brooklyn, New York-based outfit. He collaborated with Mason Jar Music on the tune, Words Remain, using handbells,
the flute and strings.
Several other coveted albums followed, and Josh Garrels continues to compose his ethereal and
original material today!
