Garrett Kato Shares Soulful New Single “Secrets”
March 24, 2022 BY Tamara Simons
Platinum-award-winning producer Garrett Kato shows no signs of slowing down as he shares his introspective soulful new track “Secrets,” available everywhere tomorrow HERE. Along with the release of “Secrets,” Kato will be supporting the Pierce Brothers for their UK/EU tour this coming May and June 2022.
Produced and mixed in Garrett’s home studio, “Secrets,” shows a side of Kato we have never seen before. The track touches on vulnerability and the challenges of mental health after dealing with loss.
“I’ve lost two friends to suicide and believe it’s partly a result of keeping secrets to yourself about how much you are really struggling. Opening up to people and professionals is something that is very important and is a growing situation as the world gets bigger and harder.

Australian tastemaker triple j dubbed him as the “producer and musician behind some of the most prominent sounds coming out the Byron Bay’s booming buskers’ scene” and rightly so; Garrett has worked with a string of Aussie icons including Julia Stone, Tones and I, Busby Marou, Pete Murray, Riley Pearce and more. Additionally, in 2021, Garrett launched his very own masterclass-style online course, through which he teaches up-and-coming singer-songwriters and producers the skills of the trade he knows so well.
Born in Canada, Garrett Kato moved to Australia after spontaneously quitting his day job to pursue his passion for music. After busking and performing five gigs a week, Garrett is now having his songs synced with box office hits in the US, touring internationally, and all the while running his own recording studio.
