Biography

Garrison Starr is a singer-songwriter who originally hails from Hernando, Mississippi; a suburb of Memphis, TN. She was born on April 29, 1975.

Her first album “Pinwheels” was recorded shortly after her high school graduation. During a 1 1/2 year stint as a student at Ole Miss, Starr met and forged a friendship with fellow artist and producer Neilson Hubbard. To this day, Starr and Hubbard frequently collaborate. Her second release, the 7 track EP “Stupid Girl” references her experiences there which were not always pleasant.

Garrison was signed to Geffen Records who released her first major label album “18 Over Me” in 1997. “18 Over Me” includes the song “Superhero” which is her most well known song to date, it has appeared on several compilations including “Live at World Cafe” and CMJ magazine’s sampler. Garrison re-recorded “Superhero” for her 3rd major release 2005’s “Airstreams & Satellites”. It also includes a faster version of “Molly” which originally appeared on the “Stupid Girl” EP. On both versions producer Neilson Hubbard sings back-up vocals. “18 Over Me” is currently out of print and can only be purchased used. Garrison occasionally has copies at her live performances, but currently Geffen owns the rights to it so she cannot re-release it.

On the moderate success of “18 Over Me” Garrison was invited to play on the highly successful all female festival tour Lilith Fair created by Sarah McLachlan. Starr left the deep south for Los Angeles in the mid 1990s.
