Kevin Garrett’s Unaffected Vocals Give His Music a Pristine Honesty Check out our thoughts and photos of his performance at The Hollywood Palladium Opening for Banks
LOS ANGELES, CA-
“…Kevin Garrett collaborated with Banks on the song “Contaminated” and he is currently on tour with Banks throughout the month of October. Though his name may not ring familiar to you, odds are good that you’ve heard his contributions in popular music. Among a laundry list of projects he has contributed to, he co-wrote the first track on Beyonce’s Lemonade (“Pray You Catch Me”) and was the featured vocalist on Rudimental’s “Do You Remember”.
His music leans emotional which floats through his R&B stylings. After putting out a handful of EPs (Mellow Drama in 2015 and False Hope in 2017, he dropped his debut full-length Hoax this year. The vibe in his music parallels Banks’ vibe. It’s music that’s warm and introspective, which is buoyed by Kevin’s unaffected vocals that give his music a certain pristine honesty. It’s the kind of feeling you get when you listen to a James Blake track.
Like his music, his performance on this evening was a moody plunge into the center of his being, and Banks’ fans seemed to be eating it up. Needless to say, I think he left a very favorable impression on the Palladium crowd…”
