Known for poignant out-of-love songs that combine a reverence for classic soul with modern electronics and traditional instrumentation, the Brooklyn-based, Pittsburgh- born singer-songwriter released his debut EP Mellow Drama to wide praise. Counting heavyweights such as Beyoncé, Sam Smith, and Katy Perry among his most ardent supporters, Kevin Garrett has shared stages with X Ambassadors, James Vincent McMorrow, Oh Wonder, Emily King, and Alessia Cara, performed at festivals such as Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, Sasquatch, Montreal Jazz and Way Home and has repeatedly charted on Spotify’s Viral 50 list. In 2016, Kevin co-wrote and co-produced the critically acclaimed song “Pray You Catch Me” from Beyoncé’s sixth studio album, Lemonade. And he’s only just begun...

For all the climates and cities that bring people together, the boys in A R I Z O N A came together as a trio in an apartment in Boston, their makeshift studio the counterweight to the lofty halls of East Coast music scholarship. In a string of infinite sessions during their time at both Berklee College of Music and Emerson College, Nate (guitar) hopped on a session with David (keys) and Zach (vocals), and all the moving pieces came together in a way that would reincarnate itself in many different fashions before eventually becoming the group now known as “A R I Z O N A”.

The three songwriter/producers from Jersey shared an obsession with the far left, sometimes even obscure side of music, but were even more romanced by the brutal honesty of pop topline and lyrics. Their music - including “I Was Wrong,” “Where I Wanna Be,” “Let Me Touch Your Fire,” and “People Crying Every Night” - creates new shapes and boundaries to span genres, time periods and styles, all focusing on the naked human tropes contained in the traditional pop narrative: love, loss, the need for raw unhinged expression.

The years and cities came and went, and it took until just last year for these old friends to point their focus finally inward. Thus, the band was formed, and they were no longer just the writers or producers; they were the performers. Over the past few months, the trio’s music has incited an exponentially upward curve of massive fan engagement and early success with tens of millions of streams across Soundcloud, Spotify, YouTube and more. A R I Z O N A joined the social savvy co-conspirators at Atlantic Records and Artist Publishing Group at the close of 2015 and are currently working on their debut album.
