Garrett Merk – “Fool’s Gold” (Prod. Mic Kellogg)

By: Shamus Hill

Brockton’s Garrett Merk is back with an exceptional track titled “Fools Gold”. Featuring some transcendent production at the hands of Mic Kellogg, the pair truly bring out the best of one another as this song aligns itself as one of Garrett’s best up through this point in time.

“Fools Gold” is based around Garrett’s tiresome mentality with respect to the music industry and the artists/individuals present within it. While many put up some form of a facade in order to remain relevant, Garrett speaks on how authenticity needs to return to the forefront of music. Instead of putting up a front on social media — Garrett relies solely on his discography for the establishment of his fanbase. This is something that has paid off incredibly well for him, as he currently finds himself living in Los Angeles making progress towards the fulfillment of his dreams. The hard work and dedication will always speak for itself, and this serves as the basis for “Fools Gold”. As long as Garrett continues to express his true self, he’ll continue to prosper. With that, we’re thrilled to see what the young talent has in store as 2019 continues to progress.

Garrett Merk – “Bygones” [Prod. Mic Kellogg]

By: Seamus Fay

Growing a considerable fanbase throughout 2017, Boston native Garrett Merk’s genuine personality and polished artistry are undoubtedly about to lend themselves to a prosperous 2018 for this young talent. With every new release I find myself enjoying something new about his sound, and in this light, I can honestly say that Merk is ready to do big things in his hometown and beyond. Today, he’s back on our pages with a dope Mic Kellogg-produced single titled “Bygones”.

This track’s ability to resonate with any listener is immediately what marked it as special for me. Merk illustrates his lines of letting the past go and moving on to the bigger and better in the world with passionate cadences, and in the way that his vocals just meet with the surface of the instrumental, a wonderful sound is brought about in this offering. All in all, I’m a big fan of the direction that Garrett Merk is headed in, and this single should only reassure fans that he has much more on the way.

With that, be sure to listen to “Bygones” below.
