Josh Garrels Background
It is fascinating to learn the musical origin of your favorite artists. In the case of Josh Garrels, his first recollection of music was at the age of three. He explained the specifics, "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." It was years later at the age of 13 that Garrels musical interest matured passed siting inside a machine meant for laundry, but continued to be relatively rebellious. In his teen years, he founded a punk rock band in which he played guitar and provided vocals. Not long after founded the band, he had an accident on a skateboard and broke his ankle that kept him on crutches for an entire summer. It was during this relatively stationary time that he began to explore the world of hip-hop and the development of the genre's beats. It was this period of time that Josh Garrels passion for the recording and production process was sparked, as well as a longing to become a pro skateboarder transitioned to something new.
At the beginning of his career, Josh Garrels was content with working independently in the entire creative, recording, production and distribution of his own music. The results were incredibly low-fi, but gave it an edge that led to Stonetree (2002), Underquiet (2003), Over Oceans (2006), Jacaranda (2008) and EP Lost Animals (2010).
Once Josh Garrels had finally got into the swing of releasing his music, his family packed up and moved from his hometown to the Pacific Northwest. Interestingly, the new landscapes and scenery inspired much of his new work, like Love & War % the Sea in Between. According to Josh Garrels, "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." After the relocation, he started to work with Mason Jar Music, which was based in Brooklyn. The collaboration between the two produced the song, "Words Remain." The instrumentation included handbells, flute and strings. Josh Garrels remains strong in his musical output and has no indications of stopping. If you have not checked out his incredibly original and ethereal music, do so today.
