Ever since winning the Critics' Choice Award at this year's BRITs all eyes have been firmly fixed on singer/songwriter/producer Jack Garratt. Following up a big 2015 with an even bigger 2016, the release of his debut album, Phase, back in February well and truly signaled his arrival on music's main stage.
Infamously commenting on the current lack of diversity at Award ceremonies such as The BRITs this year whilst at the show itself, Garratt brought a conversation that was already being had to a much bigger audience. Listing the likes of Little Simz, Krept & Konan, and Stormzy as artists he feels should have been represented at The BRITs, his words resonated with a lot of people. Revisiting his initial comment, Garratt sat down with Gigwise to explain how it all came about and whether or not he thinks things have changed since.
During the interview backstage at Reading Festival, he also touched upon his itchy Twitter fingers, his love of film scores, and Janet Jackson, following a recent cover of the singer's song 'I Get Lonely' with rising soul star Gallant.
