His goal: to push boundaries, to find new ways to approach music, to audibly compliment & bring out the best in each game, and most importantly, to tell a story; one that will take players on an immersive journey & leave an incredible impact.
Nashville-based composer, producer & mix engineer born into a musical family in 1997, Garrett Williamson grew up constantly writing music on piano and figuring out grooves on drums. By the time he was 10, he began recording his own music, and in 2012, he released his debut album, Edge of the Universe, and from there continued to release more projects commercially. He eventually began working on music for YouTubers such as the group Hidden Block & PeanutButterGamer, and for video games including Asagao Academy & Obliteracers.
With a lifetime passion & over 17 years of musical experience, and a love for video games, Garrett was always fascinated with how musicians had to approach music in games compared to the linear style of film & television. His goal has always been to constantly push boundaries, to find new ways to approach his work, to audibly compliment and bring out the best in each game and its world, and most importantly, to tell a story; one that will take players on an immersive journey and leave an incredible impact.
Some of Garrett’s largest influences include The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Foo Fighters, Dirty Loops, Janet Jackson, John Mayer, Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, Jamiroquai, Frou Frou, Jacob Collier, and many others. Within video game music, Garrett is heavily influenced by Koji Kondo, Jun Senoue, Simon Stålenhag, Tomoya Ohtani, Yuzo Koshiro, Kazumi Totaka, Nobuo Uematsu, and many more.
Garrett is currently working on more music for video games, YouTubers, documentaries, and his own personal projects.
The older I get, the younger time seems. When I was seven, 22 years seemed like a long time. Now it seems like a drop in the bucket.
