- DNA Magazine

"Save The Queen is the perfect gate into a new artist destined to be important and hugely successful"

-Larry Flick, Sirius XM Radio

GAREK is a Chicago based singer-songwriter. Born and raised in Wisconsin, he made the transition to New York in 2010. Fusing Industrial Rock (a la Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson and Garbage) with haunting melodies and explosive choruses, GAREK creates a distinct sonic landscape. 

 

GAREK’s first single “Save The Queen” debuted at #5 on the DRT Indie Rock Chart in the U.S. and #11 on the European chart. "Save The Queen" also found a home at Sirius XM via Billboard Music writer and DJ Larry Flick. The single received a "massive response" within its first week and spent several weeks on heavy rotation.

In September 2014, GAREK proved his influence extends beyond music as he made his UK debut for the Champagne-inspired jeweler ‘Wearing Memories’ at

London Fashion Week.

 

Guests of the sold-out show were treated to a spectacle blending GAREK’s Industrial stylings with ‘Wearing Memories’ classic appeal.

 

Models strutted down the catwalk in black morph suits to GAREK’s “Save The Queen” before GAREK himself closed the show.

"I do not typically comment on the strength of an artist, but I continue to receive Facebook messages, direct emails, Executive Board emails, and even calls regarding his name, where he can be found on social media, and more; he won the audience.
