Garrett Whitney and the Outlaw Gruntry Band are the hypothetical result of a one-night stand between Seattle, WA and Austin, TX. Meshing the influences of grunge, outlaw country, and classic rock into what they call “Gruntry Music”. The band stands out among other acts in the Pacific Northwest. Featuring experienced musicians well versed in metal, hard rock, classic rock, and classic country, the band delivers stunning live performances that combine the bands original material with unique takes on covers by artists such as Waylon Jennings, David Allan Coe, Guns ‘n Roses, The Rolling Stones, Jimmy Hendrix, and Tom Petty. The group’s original songs are penned by vocalist and guitar player Garrett Whitney who has a knack of combining edgy, sincere, brash, humorous, and honest stories with a pop sensibility. Bringing a bluesy, rocking tone to the band is lead guitarist Adam Reid. The songs are pounded and shaped by the driving consistency of the band’s most metal element; Jarratt Van Dyke on Drums. Ted Cochran adds the bottom end with his melodic bass lines, ultimately mixing into one of the Pacific Northwest’s most eclectic and diverse original musical acts. From soft, soulful ballads to heart racing rockers, Garrett Whitney and the Outlaw Gruntry Band deliver a unique yet highlight palatable taste to a newly emerging resurgence of classic country music.
