Rock
A.k.a. Bruce Robertson Garrett Lund

Bruce Robertson aka Garrett Lund was and still is a mysterious person. In the early ‘70’s he was singer in the L.A. group The Caretakers (4). From what is known, he was born in the early ‘50’s. His father deserted Garrett and his mother -before he was born and in his teens his beloved mother died. Garrett’s audition and acceptance as a member of The Caretakers (4), was a step up from his first local band to evolved into Trane, and became an instant success, playing the southwest of the US. Trane appeared at numerous rock festivals and large clubs, opening for Led Zeppelin, Cream, Eric Burdon & The Animals, Jefferson Airplane and The Who. Almost immediately Trane was headlining their own sold-out shows. What happened then is unclear, except that Garrett began a solo career and three years after Trane completed “Almost Grown” which was promptly rejected by 22 record labels. Convinced that the album could and should be an artistic and commercial success, Garrett’s manager/producer, along with friends and family, set out to independently release “Almost Grown” with the help of record promoter, John Holcomb, succeeded in achieving rotation on nine radio stations and selling 2.000 units in less than two weeks. Armed with the independently released success, the record companies were once again given the chance to sign Garrett and once again they passed. Since then, there's virtually no information on “Almost Grown” or Garrett Lund until 2001.
