New Album: BØRNS – Dopamine

:: Great!


.

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. [Press release]
