His friends call him G’Lo- which has more to do with his name being Garrett Loria and not that he tells them to get on the floor like artist J’Lo, which he also does. We stumbled upon this multi-talented charming DJ Producer where he feels most at home- on stage. He originally thought he’d rock the symphonic stages as a classical pianist and in fact, went to an arts high school to study just that. However, once at UC Berkeley to study music and technology, he set his eyes on the party atmosphere. Now he rocks crowds of up to 500 in the clubs of San Francisco and has fully embraced a musician’s lifestyle.
He produces original songs. He teaches classical and jazz piano. He is completely up-to-date in the latest releases from every major country. He frequents concerts to check out upcoming talent. When asked how he juggles it all he said, “I don’t actually sleep, I just take naps. I am too excited to get back to work every day!”
Garrett doesn’t need to seek out fun times cause he brings them wherever he goes. Even cooking dinner becomes an opportunity to get creative since he never uses recipes. He also loves to fish with his dad when he wants a break from all the lights and action of being a full-time artist. He also likes to kick back with his boa constrictor, Versace, who doesn’t mind Garrett’s loud music. Garrett jokes that he used to clear his mind by playing video games competitively because “actually both playing piano and DJing, like video games, are at the root- technical button pushing” but can’t find the time for it anymore.
With brains, skill, and a gregarious nature- putting on amazing shows and events has become second nature for Garrett. “I wanted to pursue DJing as a career because I get to make a living doing exactly what I’m passionate about. There’s a shortage of people who genuinely have a fun time at work and brag about their jobs- I’m stoked to be one of the people who does.”
