Grand Haven, Michigan native Garrett Borns — better known as BØRNS — has been on our radar for quite a while now.
BØRNS first won us over with his synth-inspired folk sound with his debut EP Candy, which dropped back in 2014. Since, the musician released his debut album Dopamine — which satisfied our need for more of his unique sound — back in October of 2015.
The 24-year-old stands out for his undeniably feel-good tracks that never fail to relax us and make us smile. Sometimes you just need a euphoric jam and that’s what he’s perfect for.
We caught up with the artist when he was in town for a tour stop at The Phoenix to take him way back when to revisit his hilarious and, as he says, “awkward” childhood.
Press that play button and learn a lot more about BØRNS — he even surprised himself.
