The band met in a whirl wind storm of fate and mutual acquaintances...
Garrett Lee Bartley has been holding a guitar from age five. Though he had many in his family whom played he was self taught by the age of fourteen and has been using his talents to entertain family and friends alike. Always making up new songs that not only reflected his age but also circumstance, mostly just having fun and laughable lyrics.
The blend of his style was finally mastered in his adulthood in the past few years. When he found his true sound in a country, blues, rock that not only fit his lyrics but also the feeling he wanted to reflect in his sound. The band met in a whirl wind storm of fate and mutual acquaintances. The mesh between Shawn Clayton's rocker guitar style, smooth vocal harmonies and attention to detail was a shoe fit that gave Garrett's songs the edge it was missing, not to mention a complete feel to the song.
Stefan Wikle is as solid as a concrete floor on Bass. His tasteful notes and impressive background harmonies sets the stage for some great musicality. The other tandem on the rhythm section is Dana Peite on drums. Another twist of fate was sharing the stage with Dana on some local tour dates and eventually getting him to thump the drums for GBB! The Garrett Bartley Band is in its dynamic as a true family who keeps growing with every new fan, welcome home.
