NWP welcomes Tacoma music prodigy Nolan Garrett!
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 17-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.
“I wasn’t very good at sports, so I decided to try music and picked up the guitar, but when the day of my first lesson came around, I didn’t even want to go,” he lets out with a laugh of those pre-teen beginnings. “But after my first lesson, I was hooked, and besides having a knack for it, I was able to get instant results where there wasn’t any competition. http://www.nolangarrett.net
