SPACES: Inside Kevin Garrett’s one-of-one Pittsburgh home studio


Gear costs dropped, the internet took off, and nothing has been the same since. As artists today have more control over how they release and promote music, they also have more control over how and where they create music.

SPACES is a series that shines AWAL’s light on the new creative process exploring how the nuances of artists environments make it unique.

We’ll feature artists in their own spaces making music, talking about music, and explaining how those spaces influences and inform the music they create.
