The music on this season of SNL has been pretty crappy. It's time we get a singer songwriter that is successful, but not in the traditional sense. Garrison Starr has released 12 albums, the last of which is "Amateur" which was completely funded by her fans. She had complete creative control over this album and it's by far her most personal and beautiful record. She has had little to no mainstream exposure. Her songs have graced shows such as "Pretty Little Liars" and "MTVs: The Hills". She is a passionate singer/songwriter and is definitely an amazing live performer. She is very personable and open with her fans. A lot of her music is about her struggle with coming out. Her career spans from 1993 to present. She has been a part of This Living Hand, Plover, The North LaBrea All Star Conquistadors and Among the Oak and Ash. She has matured as an artist and an individual. Coming from a very southern family, being gay wasn't widely accepted. Her song, "Unchangeable" is a heartfelt anthem for anyone that has felt not good enough or unaccepted. Her music transcends every genre, background and personal history. I challenge anyone not to find just one song they can relate to. From tales of love, to feeling "Ugly", to finding the love of your life, Garrison delivers.
