American musician, rapper, singer, songwriter, DJ and record producer Garrett Nash takes us on a ride in new nostalgic single “The Middle Of Nowhere”
“I wonder what it’d be like to live a different life all the time,” Nash shared. “Just me & my family in a little house in The Middle of Nowhere. When I wrote this song with Gabe Simon I was sitting in his studio in Nashville looking out the window at a little abandoned garage in his backyard thinking “what if i just… moved in there? Would all my fears, anxieties, & problems go away? Probably not, but maybe I’d feel home again.”
The new track follows Nash’s nostalgic cover of his favorite childhood song, “Stacy’s Mom,” as well as a pair of irresistible singles – the self-reflective, “Super Glue,” and the touching ode to Nash’s upbringing in Los Angeles, “Palm Trees.” These recent tracks marked a new direction from the singer-songwriter formerly known as gnash. The name change reflects his remarkable growth as both an individual and artist over the past decade.
gnash made his global breakthrough with 2016’s multi-platform blockbuster hit single, “i hate u, i love u.” The stripped-bare track reached the top 10 on Billboard’s “Hot 100” – where it spent an impressive 39 weeks – and singles charts around the world, earning 6x RIAA platinum certification and more than 2B global streams. Furthermore, the “i hate u, i love u” companion video is an unadulterated blockbuster, now with over 650M individual views via YouTube alone.
2019 saw gnash follow a series of EPs with his RIAA gold certified full-length debut album, we, drawing praise from such outlets as The Guardian for its “highly intimate confessionals about doubt, anxiety and insecurity…the combination of charming tunes and humbling insights are truly lovely.”
A strong advocate for mental health, gnash has long been open about his struggles, publicly acknowledging the benefits of therapy while also encouraging fans to find their own unique way to express themselves.
