When Jack Garratt first came to our attention, his signature immediately became richly built electronic choruses that entwined themselves around his soulful vocals. We would have never expected that Garratt, who so expertly wields his production chops and natural vocal talent, existed in any musical incarnation prior to this. To hear Garratt’s account of his early singer-songwriting days, which he admits were not very good, just goes to show that reinvention is often the key to creativity. We caught up with the producer down in Austin in between SXSW showcases to learn more about the work he is drawn to and hopes to make.
