Garrett Kato Releases New EP ‘n. hemisphere’ Today + 2021 UK/EU Dates Supporting Pierce Brothers

August 28, 2020 BY Nettwerk

Today, Canadian-born, Australia-based singer/songwriter and producer Garrett Kato releases his new EP, n. hemisphere (Nettwerk), which he’ll support with recently announced 2021 tour dates with Pierce Brothers across the UK and Europe, starting January 20th in Dublin. All dates are below; listen to the new EP HERE.

Garrett says of n. hemisphere, “The first half of my existence on earth started in Vancouver. This was where I grew up and was all I knew as a kid up until 23. Now, looking back, I treasure the experiences of growing up in the Pacific North West. This EP is a letter to my past and where I’m from. During its production, I toured around the world twice and found unique musical inspirations, from Berlin deep house to throwback rock n roll. It’s my most diverse work as a producer-engineer, as well as a songwriter so far.”
n. hemisphere is the sister EP to Garrett’s March 2020 release, s. hemisphere, which featured stand out tracks “Breathe It In (feat. Julia Stone)” and “Holding on to You.” His journey across both hemispheres as an artist, producer, and eventually husband and father,wraps both of these halves together in one musical odyssey blanketed by a patchwork of folk, indie, alternative, and rock.

Garrett traded Canada for Byron Bay in 2010, planting roots after years of nomadic living.  By 2020, he generated upwards of 45 million worldwide streams and performed sold-out shows alongside Damien Rice and Ziggy Alberts. He landed syncs in blockbusters like Bad Moms as “Take It Slowly” exceeded 13 million Spotify streams. His 2019 EP, Distant Land, earned the endorsement of Triple J and Beatroute Magazine as the title track eclipsed 2.7 million Spotify streams. He also cemented himself as an in-demand producer, working with the aforementioned Ziggy Alberts on his 2016 EP Four Feet in the Forest (certified Platinum in Aus) and his 2018 album Laps Around the Sun (certified Platinum in Aus), as well as releases from Kyle Lionheart, Pete Murray, Pierce Brothers, and more. Creating out of his personal studio, he crafted these two EPs.
