AG grew up in Miami, earned a degree in music production and engineering from the Berklee College of Music in Boston, and moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career that has so far produced eight albums and landed her music on such television shows as Grey’s Anatomy, One Tree Hill, and Gossip Girl. Inspired by artists like Jewel and the Indigo Girls, she plays piano and guitar, and sings her own impassioned originals, which occupy the indie territory at the intersection of folk, rock, and pop. Performer Magazine, in a recent cover story, calls her “a fearless beast of artistic expression” and praises her new EP, Reimagine: The Beatles, as “one of the most haunting, gender/genre bending expressions of musical ingenuity in recent memory.”
Garrison Starr recorded her first album straight out of high school in Hernando, Mississippi in 1993, and since then she’s released nearly a dozen more, including last year’s Amateur, which includes a duet with one of her idols, Mary Chapin Carpenter. The website absolutepunk calls the album “a rare treasure,” and popmatters says that its 13 originals “sparkle and shine.” Garrison has worked with such artists as Kevin Devine, Mindy Smith, and Glen Phillips of Toad the Wet Sprocket, and her songs have appeared on television programs including The Hills and Pretty Little Liars.
