Shaped by Garrett’s past relationships, the newly-released track explores the pain that follows a break-up and, critically, the journey toward forgiveness and acceptance. He also takes pride in pairing his latest song with a video that celebrates LGBTQ+ relationships.
According to the artist, the song tells the story of Garrett’s life-changing relationship, from the early passion to the painful break-up and eventual inner peace.
The story began in 2018 when he moved from New York City to Berlin. Outside of a café, he met a man, and they started a relationship. As the relationship ended, Garrett was left in a foreign country with no support system. He looked inward, struggling with the idea of forgiveness, and poured these feelings into the song.
Raised in New York City, Garrett spent his younger years behind a microphone performing his poetry. He has leveraged this experience into the latest release; his lyrics are passionate, sensitive, and cadenced. Garrett’s gravelly voice also adds a layer of depth to his performance.
The artist’s meaningful lyrics pair well with his UK garage style, a genre that adopts elements from R&B and house dance music. In ‘THE LIGHT,’ listeners will hear the rhythmic lyrics of R&B backed by a high-tempo dance beat.
With the latest video release, Garrett continues to advocate for queer relationships. His lyrics reassure listeners that hope after heartbreak is possible. To hear all of his music, please visit https://open.spotify.com/artist/3S1YEBLdJ5a7PI9TCatDrd
About this track, Garrett said, “After the destruction of a relationship, you have to, with every ounce of your being, find a way to pack up your life and move on. People change, obstacles show up, and we, as humans, have to find a way around them. That’s what ‘THE LIGHT’ is about — setting someone free.”
