Garret Dutton -- aka G Love -- grew up in Philadelphia and has been making music since the age of eight. His debut album G Love and Special sauce came out in 1994 on the classic Okeh blues label, and melded hip hop styles with traditional blues in a distinctive sound that became a reference point for lots of artists in the years to come. To date, he has released eleven full length studio recordings, and recently toured with Dave Matthews.
In this segment, G Love plays a couple songs and speaks with 91.5 KRCC’s Vicky Gregor during a stop through Colorado Springs on his most recent concert tour.
