Growing up in coastal Michigan, Garrett Borns moved from one inspiration to another. His first artistic love was visual arts and then came music thanks to an eccentric piano teacher. At the age of fifteen BØRNS attended the prestigious summer program at Interlochen Center for the Arts to study filmmaking while writing songs on the side with the music majors. Playing local gigs through high school and college, BØRNS ended up in a secluded treehouse home in the Los Angeles canyons where he wrote his debut Candy EP, a set that filters the singer’s naturally moody, sensual sound through “an explosion of sunlight,” as he puts it. BØRNS’ single “Electric Love” is taking over radio airwaves and garnering praise from the media with NPR stating the song is “catchy and clever,” and Spin noting BØRNS “writes brilliant pop songs that worm their way into your heart in an instant.” BØRNS spent most of 2015 on the road sharing the bill with Misterwives, Charli XCX and Bleachers and playing festivals like Firefly, Lollapalooza and the upcoming Bumbershoot, Life Is Beautiful and Austin City Limits.

I’m stoked for this released but Check out BØRNS’ previous release, his EP Candy.
