G. Love Biography:

Garrett Dutton III (born October 3, 1972), better known as G. Love, is the front man for the band, G. Love & Special Sauce.

Dutton, born in Philadelphia, began playing guitar at age 8. He wrote his first song by the time he was in the 9th grade and began playing harmonica in a wire rack. Dutton credits Bob Dylan and John Hammond Jr., as well as then-contemporary "old school" hip-hop sounds of Run-DMC, the Beastie Boys, and Philadelphia's own Schooly D as influences.

Dutton, still in high school at Germantown Friends School, began playing solo on the streets of Philadelphia. After a year of college, he relocated to Boston, working as a fundraiser for Peace Action and playing wherever and whenever he could. One of his few indoor gigs at this time was a Boston bar called The Tam O'Shanter, where he met drummer Jeffrey "The Houseman" Clemens in January 1993. Dutton and Clemens began working as a duo, they were joined a few months later by bassist Jim "Jimi Jazz" Prescott and became the house band on Mondays at The Plough and Stars in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The name G. Love doesn't really have that much of a story to it. The 'G' stands for Garrett, his first name. He said in an interview that the 'Love' was just there because it sounded right.

G. Love featured Jack Johnson on his 1999 LP Philadelphonic playing an early version of Jack Johnson's "Rodeo Clowns" when Jack was an unknown artist. Jack later featured the song on his 2003 LP On and On.

Known nowadays for his excellent live shows, he is often seen touring with Jack Johnson, who signed G. Love to his record label Brushfire Records. He has made appearances on the records of artists such as Slightly Stoopid and Donovan Frankenreiter.

Lacey Mosley of G. Love performing on Daily DownloadOn April 12, 2006, G. Love performed live on television for the first time on Fuse TV's Daily Download. They did two songs: "I'm So Sick", which has been a Top 5 video on the station, and "All Around Me". On July 10, 2006, G. Love logged their first network television appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live where they performed their first two singles, "I'm So Sick" and "Fully Alive".

Their music is a mix of screamo-esque emotion-based vocals and hard rock instrumentals. The band cites influences such as Rage Against The Machine, Foo Fighters, Incubus, Soundgarden, The Smashing Pumpkins, and Nirvana.[citation needed] They have toured with P.O.D., Seether, and Shinedown and are headlining their own tour. The band will be playing on the revival of the Family Values Tour. The tour consists of Korn, Deftones, G. Love, Stone Sour, Dir En Grey, Deadsy, 10 Years, Bury Your Dead, and Bullets and Octane.
