Los Angeles-based producer gnash combines the emotional vulnerability of Bright Eyes with the sounds of laptop alt-R&B similar to the Weeknd's early releases. His international hit collaboration with Olivia O'Brien "i hate u, i love u" went multi-platinum across the globe in 2016, rising into the Top 10 in the U.S., Europe, and Australasia.
Born Garrett Charles Nash, gnash got his start as a DJ and as one part of the duo Gemineyes with Harry Hudson. In 2014, his reimagining of the O.T. Genasis track "CoCo" garnered attention from blogs, which led to a string of digital singles released in 2015. His debut EP, U, was released in March of the same year. A mellow, laid-back affair, U employed gnash's rapping over woozy atmospherics, bringing to mind Drake and Troye Sivan. At the end of the year, me arrived. One year after his debut release, he issued his third EP, the seven-song us. Gnash described the emotive, downtempo us as his personal sonic journey through life's ups and downs -- breakups, self-discovery, searching for new experiences -- ultimately leading to loving oneself. A full roster of guest collaborators appeared on the EP, such as Compton rapper Buddy, Goody Grace, Mark Johns, Liphemra, Wrenn, Quiñ, and Rosabeales. Lead single "i hate u, i love u," a duet with Olivia O'Brien, surpassed 350 million online streams, topped international charts, and entered the Billboard Top Ten in late 2016.
In 2018, gnash returned with the singles "The Broken Hearts Club," "Nobody's Home," and "t-shirt," which would all land on his official debut full-length, We (Atlantic), which was issued in early 2019. ~ Neil Z. Yeung~ Rovi
