Family is everything to Garrett Charles Nash, a.k.a. L.A. singer-songwriter, rapper, and producer gnash. "I was raised to talk about how I felt," he recounts in this heartwarming short documentary produced by The FADER and YouTube, and filmed entirely in the Nash family household.
gnash's mom, dad, sister, mentor, manager, and best friends all weigh in on his path from "Lil homie gnash" who used to DJ local house parties to an accomplished artist who's "growing up to be a man," as his mentor put it. He's still all about family, though: he records all his music out of a home studio he and his dad built in their garage. "If a feeling sticks around for long enough, then I'm gonna make a song about it," gnash says of his approach to his art. "I just wanna help people with how they feel."

gnash is going on tour March 31. Find tickets and more info here.
