Matthew Mayfield & Garrison Starr
“I’m claiming my seat at the table. I’ve earned it.” Garrison Starr has reconciled the painof her past, wrestled shame and self-doubt into submission, and stands in herpowerfully-bared truth with her new album, Girl I Used To Be. After two milestone-ladendecades in music (GRAMMY-nominated album, sync placements on massive TV hitsincluding “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Pretty Little Liars,” touring with Patty Griffin, MelissaEtheridge and more), Garrison, hailed as “Lucinda Williams for Gen X’ers” by NPR,quietly put her “artist self” on the shelf. Having been been kicked out of the Evangelicalchurch of her youth for being gay, she retreated into songwriting — exhausted, hurt, andangry. Processing pain with her pen, Garrison faced down the hell she paid growing upin Christian fundamentalism which only saw her “sin” — trauma she tackles on thealbum’s tone-setting first track, “The Devil In Me”. Lauded by MSNBC for her “gorgeous,full, rough, passionate voice that can be ultimately pensive, intimate, hurt, consoling,libidinous, or scornful — sometimes during the same verse,” Garrison reconnected withher a part of herself she’d been missing “for a long, long time” while recording Girl IUsed To Be. “This album is an exploration of self-love, forgiveness, and self-discovery,”she says. “There is a vulnerability in these songs and the performances that I love. Thesongs were recorded and performed live, with two old mics — one on the guitar and oneon my voice. No click, just me and the old Martin I was playing, or the old Gibson. Theywere both such sweet and patient old vessels.” Adding, “This record feels like me. AsI’ve always been. Right here all along.”
