Kevin Garrett covers Childish Gambino ‘Redbone’ | ellesse Make it Music


ellesse Make it Music is a series of studio sessions filmed and recorded at Metropolis Studios, London. Exclusive interviews and performances from both established & up-and-coming artists are released every fortnight via our ellesse UK YouTube channel.

Singer-songwriter Kevin Garrett’s music career has soared to new levels of greatness in the last two years. He’s gained support from a star-studded fan base, including the likes of Sam Smith & Katy Perry, and recently sold out 17 dates on his ‘False Hope’ headline tour – a pretty amazing achievement for an independent artist who’s yet to release an album.

Hailing from Pittsburg, Pennsylvania (now residing in Brooklyn, New York), Kevin began writing songs at 13 after learning to play the violin, keyboard and guitar in his younger years.

These days, he’s composing musical works of art for some of the biggest names in the music industry. His most notable writing achievement came in the form of co-writing and producing the opening track of Beyoncé’s ‘Lemonade’ album, titled “Pray You Catch Me”.

For his Make it Music session, Kevin has performed an acoustic version of ‘Heart Like Yours’ from his False Hope EP, as well as an exclusive cover of Childish Gambino’s massive hit ‘Redbone’.
