Gattison, recently released his newest single “California Magic”. The track is written by Shari Short (who has written for Ariana Grande, Joe Jonas, Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus) and will be followed by an international video release that will feature VIP cameos.
Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Gattison began playing the piano and singing at the young-age of ten years old and composed his first song at the age of twelve. Since his youth he has been surrounded by musical talent and has grown tremendously from it. He grew up in a family where every member could either sing or play an instrument.
His rich musical heritage includes his Aunt, Dorothy Morrison, who was the original singer of the 1960’s hit, “Oh Happy Day”, his uncle, Jerry Combs, who was signed to Warner Brothers Music, and his cousin Levi Seacer Jr, who played guitar for Prince. All of these were major musical influences for Gattison.
Gattison began his musical journey in a small gospel church where he developed a smooth, soulful sound very early in life. In his teenage years, he discovered Electronic Dance Music, and he immediately fell in love with the genre which sparked a journey of developing the right mix of his musical upbringing and his new-found love.
Gattison went on to write, record, and even perform original music. Gattison’s concerts evolved to him performing to crowds of over 10,000 people and he even performed at the Centennial Celebration of the National Park and shared the stage with legends like Emmylou Harris (thirteen-time Grammy Award Winner) and John Prine (two time Grammy Award Winner).
