.............

The beginnings of this album were born on the road when touring my last record, Little Cottonwood—cut live in a cabin at the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon in the Wasatch Rockies where I grew up. Because of the simplicity and intimacy of that album, I quickly found on the road that the tunes were too quiet and too mellow for the farmers markets, cafes and street corners where we played. So at (and in between) these shows, I wrote material on the spot to help gather the space. And thus, Huckleberry Tree took its shape.

There are other factors too that infused the writing, finishings and sound of Huckleberry Tree.

There is a thriving old-time, roots music scene where I live in Portland, Oregon. And some of the country’s finest curators and keepers of this sound call it home. So as the writing of Huckleberry Tree matured, I embarked on countless hours of listening to pickers and players huddled in corners of smokey pubs playing their hearts out—seeding a re-appreciation, love and preservation of old mountain music. After months of this, I began assembling a crew I now call “The Great Salt Licks” to bring Huckleberry Tree to life. They are Sammy Lind of the Foghorn Stringband, Jon Neufeld of Jackstraw, Tony Furtado, Scott Law, Drew Shoals and Will Amend. With their help, we created a record that deconstructs and rebuilds the pieces that make up that American sound.

Garett gets down...
Garett gets down with some of the best musicians in Portland to create my favorite CD that I've heard this year. Huckleberry Tree holds true to the essence of a "living room jam with friends", where this kind of music always belongs. It's perfect music for a Sunday afternoon drive, cranked up with the windows down.

Get the Whole Thing!
Garett pulls off a masterpiece with Little Cottonwood. This album has been in my car for several months and continues to get better each time I give it a listen... while each song stands on its own, it is really the album as a whole that I have fallen in love with. A wonderfully executed album with great stories and superb musicianship, Little Cottonwood will not disappoint.

Musical Wonder
Wonderfully rich thought, emotion and pure talent has come together in a perfect balance for Huckleberry Tree. Garett's beautiful story based composition has come alive with musical accompaniment that really connects with heart of the music. I have listened to Garett's music for many years and this album has reached a whole new level of musical wonder! I could not put it down!
