You Know Me !

GAREK

Summer 2014

1. How do we know you?

I’ve forced myself on Patrick a few times. I’m also the queen behind the not-so-viral smash “Save The Queen.”

2. What is your latest project?

I recently wrapped a shoot for my second music video. Katy Perry and Lady Gaga made surprise appearances. It was absolutely tasteless.

3. Where are you living?

Fabulous SpaHa (East Harlem)–the only place in the city I can get a walk-in for my weave.

4. What don’t we know about you?

I have a better point than most dancers.

5. What is your favorite travel destination?

Any open bar (I’ve traveled for those).

6. What inspires you?

Pinot Noir, failed relationships, bad habits, real artists.

7. If not yourself, who would you be?

Ursula the Sea Witch.

8. What book is your bible?

The Alchemist by Paolo Coehlo.

9. What is your favorite word?

Free.

10. Who is your biggest hero?

Ursula the Sea Witch. She knew what she wanted, and went after it. I respect that in an eight-legged female.

11. How would you define success?

Touring, making art, and having a steady 3-meals-a-day routine.

12. What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?

What are you reading?

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. A bit of light reading…

Garek is a New York based singer-songwriter. Born and raised in Wisconsin, he made the transition to New York in 2010. Fusing Industrial Rock (a la Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson and Garbage) with haunting melodies and explosive choruses, Garek creates a distinct sonic landscape.
