Artist Biography

The Garden is a punk bass and drums duo from Orange, California comprised of twin brothers Fletch and Wyatt Shears. They started the band at the age of 19 after a brief stint modeling for Yves Saint Laurent. Fletcher took on the drums while also habitually cross-dressing. Meanwhile, his brother Wyatt took on the bass guitar and vocals instead of the traditional guitar. Together as The Garden, they released their debut cassette EP titled Everything Is Perfect in 2012 followed by the EP The Life and Times of a Paperclip, both released via Burger Records. While releasing these EPs, Fletcher began a solo project doing electronic material under the name Puzzle while Wyatt did a synth/bass project called Enjoy. In 2014, The Garden toured throughout Tokyo, the U.S., and Europe before releasing their 17-track debut album Haha the following year. The album’s production was split between Burger and Epitaph Records. In 2018, they released their next album Mirror Might Steal Your Charm which featured a more guitar-forward sound. The next year they worked with Mac DeMarco on their single “Thy Mission.” The Garden’s latest album is 2022’s HORSESHIT ON ROUTE 66.
