Glitteratti consists of songwriter Marc Gartman on guitar (Two Many Banjos, Fever Dream), Dave Carroll on electric guitar (Trampled by Turtles, Two Many Banjos), Tim Saxhaug on bass (Trampled by Turtles, Dead Man Winter) and Kyle Keegan on drums (Ben Howard, Mandolin Orange), and was formed in Duluth, MN in 2013.
Their debut full length album, Among the Wild, was produced by Steve Garrington (Low) and will be released March 6, 2020. Side A consists of songs they recorded in 2019 with Brian Frederick Joseph (Bon Iver, Paul Simon) at his studio in Eau Claire, hive. Side B, originally released as an EP entitled In Pasadena in 2017, is made up of material they recorded with Lance Conrad (Lizzo, HALEY) at his Humans Win! Studio in Minneapolis.
While Glitteratti began as an acoustic covers outfit, over time Marc Gartman began to present original songs that the band could potentially play. Steve Garrington, a Gartman cohort for many years, became a key player in helping to figure out which songs created an interested sound for the band and how they might go about recording them.
Glitteratti will tour nationally in support of Among the Wild in March 2020.
