Casey’s Garrett Biggs has had a busy week. Last weekend, he released the studio recording for the song “Average Joe” on YouTube. You saw a live version of the song first here on Coles County Rocks.
Here’s the video.
Also this week, he announced the Album Release Party for his first album, also titled “Average Joe.”
Here’s the press release about the celebration:
Garrett Biggs, a local teen from Casey, IL, will be releasing his much anticipated debut CD entitled “Average Joe” on April 9th, at Richard’s Farm Restaurant in Casey, Ill. Tickets to the event are $20 for adults and $15 for kids 12 and under.
Included in the price of the tickets is a country style buffet. The show will feature Jake Hoult as the opening act, and Garrett Biggs & The Highway 40 Band as the headline act.
Tickets can be pre-ordered by contacting Richard’s Farm at 217-932-5300. The doors open at 6 p.m.. The buffet will run from 6:15-7:15 p.m. Jake will take the stage at 7 p.m. with Biggs following at 8 p.m. Come and be one of the first to listen to Garrett’s debut project!
The CD, much like Garrett’s live show, will feature seven new original songs that are energetic, but capture that down-home vibe.
At just 17 years old, Garrett has established himself as one of the area’s top live Country acts. He has opened for big name, headlining acts like Aaron Tippin, Josh Thompson, Craig Wayne Boyd, and Drew Baldridge. He has also been featured on WTHI News 10’s “In The Spotlight” segment, and was recently chosen by 104.3 THE PARTY to win a front-of-the-line pass to “America’s Got Talent.”
“I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…thank you! I am so blessed to able to release this new music, and without you, I know it would not be possible,” Biggs said. “From the moment I stepped into the studio at Last Day Productions, my songs began to take on a whole new life. Being able to record, and even co-produce, my first record has been absolutely amazing, and I am really, really excited to see what the fans think of this project, whether it be through their headphones, cruising down the road, or out our live shows.”
