Garrett Kato WA Tour (Sonar Room)

About this event

Singer, songwriter, and platinum-award winning producer Garrett Kato delivers his new sonically striking indie-folk album, Small Town Rituals.

Small Town Rituals sees Garrett harnessing an organic approach to the writing process, allowing his emotions to come to the forefront todeliver his most vulnerable piece of work to date. The 9 tracks explore various subconscious narratives that provided Garrett “a chance to look forward and backupon my life and gain new perspectives on things.” There’s an overarching theme of “overcoming” throughout, inspired by the uncertainty surrounding Garrett’s life at the time it was recorded. “Growing is natural, but the sudden impacts of the pandemic made it feel a little forced, with everything starting and stopping at any moment. But you can learn to live with almost anything.”

Written and self-produced at his home studio, most of the album was mixed on hardware, giving the songs a more immediate and intimate feel. “The distinct toneof a vintage LA2A compressor is littered throughout the record, giving it a real warmth and detail that I previously dreamed about,” shares Kato.

Small TownRituals features the previously released singles, the record opener “Drugstore Houses,” co-written with Australian singer-songwriter and label-mate Riley Pearce, “Telephone,” “Secrets,” “Disappearing Light,” and “Rearview Mirror.
