Garrett Kato Releases New Album & Tour Dates w/ Pete Murray

97

Canadian born, Byron Bay local Garrett Kato has today released his anticipated new record, That Low and Lonesome Sound, alongside the announcement of a 27 date tour opening for Pete Murray on his extensive regional, Yours Acoustically tour through October, November and December.  Kato will also be hitting the road this month to play a run of album launch shows kick starting tonight at Brunswick Hotel in Brunswick Heads, Black Bear Lodge Brisbane on the 17th, The Vanguard Sydney on the 23rd and 303 Melbourne on September 26.

New single Headlights is an anthemic, toe-tapping folk rock, anti-love song.  “I’ve always loved the idea of anti love songs and having a large group of people sing along to something other than ‘I love you babe,’” says Kato.

Recorded between Kato’s home studio and 301 Studios in Byron Bay, alongside Anthony Lycenko, That Low and Lonesome Sound was two years in the making with Kato recording most songs multiple times, explaining, “I just kept adjusting them and tending to them like my garden.”  The result is a dynamic album full of texture and warmth.  Kato’s smooth, dreamy melodies and exquisite harmonies create a feeling of nostalgia, weaving a rich tapestry of storytelling folk gems.

Written about Kato’s relocation from Canada to Australia, “the record focuses on the journey and personal battles of letting go of a past life,” he explains, “some songs have themes which stretch further into my past, but the majority are about my new life and love in Australia… it’s basically a personal diary of manhood and letting go.”

Pumped to tour the new record, Kato will be playing his first run of September shows with his full band and will then jump straight on the road solo to open for his local Byron mate Pete Murray.  ”Playing solo with just my guitar is my most comfortable mode, I love breaking hearts if I can.”
