Garrett Laurie

Alternative // Belfast , Antrim // He/ They

Northern Irish cinematic singer - songwriter Garrett Laurie explores the dark side of the queer experience. Their recent EP, ‘Can I Play Too Or Is it Just For Boys?’ invites us into a world of thudding pop hooks and darkly poetic lyricism daring the listener to dance to or enjoy their suffering. Their vocal talent is employed masterfully to explore gender roles throughout the project, which was placed at number 18 on Chordblossom's 'Releases Of The Year 2022’. Last year Laurie attended Nikki MaCrae and Ciaran Lavery's Soft Gut Song Camp where the pair co-wrote an upcoming single together. Last Summer, their single ‘Have Fun’ was voted for replay on BBC Across The Line for two consecutive weeks. The rising artist has introduced themselves as a prolific creative force and is currently recording for their next EP, 'Barbies With Betty Finn', co-produced with Ryan McGroarty of Beauty Sleep and Chris Ryan of Robocobra Quartet.
