Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter/producer Sean "The Pen" Garrett has inked a deal with Columbia Records and is ready to step into the spotlight as a solo artist focusing on his own work. Dubbed "The Pen" by Jay-Z, Garrett is now focused on his own performing career as well as taking his songwriting and producing to a whole new international level. When you are christened with a nickname courtesy of a mastermind like Jay-Z, well, you take that name and you use it! I wish Jay-Z gave me a nickname.
Grammy-nominated Garrett has crafted singles for Jay-Z, Britney Spears, Santana, Mary J. Blige and Gwen Stefani, earning this hit-maker an astonishing seventeen #1's including Beyoncé's "Check on It," Chris Brown's "Run It," Fergie's "London Bridge," Mario's "Break Up," Nelly's "Grillz," and Usher's "Yeah!" which Billboard named the #2 record of the decade. Further demonstrating Garrett's international reach, his Enrique Iglesias produced blockbuster "Dímelo" topped the Billboard Latin Charts for a stunning 13 weeks. Clearly, the guy has the Midas touch with OTHER artists, but it is time for him to step into the spotlight as an artist in his own right.
On signing with Columbia Records, Garrett stated, "To be working with a label as esteemed and respected as Columbia Records, it's a huge honor for me. Columbia has produced some of the biggest albums and the greatest artists of all time so to have their support behind me means a lot."
