Folk/Americana musician and songwriter Garrett Heath has focused his craft by way of soulful imagery and an honest voice. He’s a proponent of Dostoevsky’s maxim that “beauty will save the world” and often journeys listeners into the mysterious union between joy and suffering in his songwriting. 

Raised with a thorough appreciation of American folk music, Heath began playing guitar and writing songs in high school. His debut album “Whisper in the Dark” sparked a tour of the eastern US in 2013. His music was also featured on the 2014 feature film, “Potential Inertia” (OneFishFilms).

RELEASES

“The easy, rootsy nature of both Heath’s approach to recording and his lifestyle as a whole is reflected in a collection of songs that are never less than warm and wholly inviting.” – Leicester Bangs

In light of the difficulties shared throughout the pandemic, “Kingdom Come” steps forward into a world full of potential without forgetting the challenges that brought us here. Read more

“The Feast” (Single)
Release Date: July 13, 2021

The single invites a friendly embrace amidst a rural Americana twang of connection and reconciliation. The album, due out July 30, was mastered by Grammy-winning engineer Pete Lyman (Chris Stapleton, John Prine, Jason Isbell). 

A lilting melody and gospel imagery gather around a table of friends, reminiscing into a rolling and healing swagger. The single enlists a vision where everyone is welcome to come as they are.  Heath says, “At its core, it’s really about a shared sense of belonging and a mutual ‘coming together at the table,’ so to speak. It’s about finding a deeper kind of healing, and it speaks to our deep need for reconciliation in a time of highly politicized division and polarization.”
