ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Producing music since an early age ... Garnetta finally premiers her art and love for music to the world.

As the world turns her music is designed to inspire others hearts and minds.

Look for more greatness coming your way

As said by Dusty Groove...

Soulful grooves from Chicago's Garnetta -- done in a style that slides into house music at times, but which often has a much more cosmic edge! There's echoes here of recent work on the European scene -- spacier elements than you'd expect from more straightforward Chicago tracks, often filtered together with a great sense of production that has all the best bits gelling together wonderfully. The rhythms are relatively straight ahead -- not as broken or skittish as some Detroit electronics -- but there's still a strongly adventurous feel to the way they're put together overall. Titles include "Don't Walk Away", "Jazz Market Stroll Kalimba", "Take This Desire", "Habit 4 U", "Robot Spit", and "Phase 1". (Note: the packaging is a slim CD case with an insert, done by Garnetta.)

I enjoyed listening to the songs.

To give you insight to the scoring scale above, the majority
of artists score in the 2.5 to 3.5 range in the various categories.

Whenever an artist sees a 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3 or 3.5 as a score in a certain category (or categories) it means that's an area I feel they need to improve and develop.

When someone sees 4, 4.5 or 5 as their score in a category, that tells them, to me, they are in the professional league and have strong potential. It's a validation from a pro, letting you know you are doing a fine job.

Every artist should work hard to earn 4.5 to 5 in every category.

I don't give out 4's and 5's easily, so any of those you see, you have earned. Well done!

Keep me posted!

Best wishes,

Eugene Foley

Now Garnetta is taking the world in her own hands. Traveling to places like Miami, Madison, Las Vegas,and many others she has found a niche of her own. Look forward to Garnetta touring near you!

Personal Review
I envision a trendy restaurant or lounge with modern furnishings, high ceilings, and track lighting strategically (and minimally) placed throughout. Garnetta’s full-length CD, "Stacking Blocks," is playing in the background as people shuffle in and around the space. It’s a music video in slow motion—the soundtrack to life. The music works on many levels with its crisp, clean, beats and unobtrusive presence. It’s the kind of CD you could have in the background at a dinner party that would go unnoticed for a time, until people started to get it—this is good stuff.

The tracks begin to bustle a little more as they go, and cleverly placed sampling let’s you know, “It’s alive!” Indeed it is. When “my desire” hits the beats, the party is starting to jump a little more and they’re clearing a spot on the floor for some dancing amidst the dimming track lights. When the tracks end, you almost wish they had kept going into the next to avoid the pesky silence that ensues as you wait for the next jam to start moving.

By the time we get “in the mix” with “Saxolicious Delicious,” the colored flashing lights have taken over the dance floor and people are softly shaking their bodies together, clapping their hands above their heads in unison. Phone calls mixed in with the beats of “DrumApella” force you to stop and take notice. You wonder briefly if that’s your phone before you decide it doesn’t matter if it is. You’re too busy feeling the “ecstasy” to answer.

The last track “Sunny Mix” rounds the collection nicely, easing back into subtle beats and sending you off to your final destination, though you’d rather it just keep rolling a little longer.
