RE-IMAGINING JAZZ, FOLK, ROCK, CHORAL AND ORCHESTRAL MUSIC

 

Born in London, I have lived and travelled across the UK, Antarctica and North America, and now call Scotland home. Live audiences hear my solo guitar work as 'serene', 'focusing', 'calming', 'beautiful', 'haunting' and 'hypnotic music', and enjoy the 'ambience of tranquility and pleasure'. I've ended up playing this way after diverse musical experiences:

Jazz -   free improviserworkshopper, quartet member

Folk - performer, accompanist, tune book creatorguitar mentor 

Rock -   bass player, songwriter 

Choral music - choirboy

My work has been received well across jazz, folk and roots genres on radio stations and in magazines. Reviewers have heard echos of Grant Green, Pat Metheny, Bill Frisell, Ralph Towner, Dean McPhee, Dick Gaughan & Steve Reich, and I acknowledge some of my other guitar heros here.

To help avoid another case of mistaken internet identity, I'd like to clarify that  I am not Steve Garrett Nashville singer and minister, Steve Garrett rap star, Steve Garrett Cardiff community activist or Steve Garrett German country and western singer.
