Garrett Borns, who performs as BØRNS hails from Western Michigan, but wandered to New York for a short stay before heading to Los Angeles “on a whim.”

That turned out to be a great move. KCRW’s Chris Douridas booked him for one of his It’s a School Night get-togethers and things started looking up. Things really took off, however, after Taylor Swift tweeted to her 51 million followers talking up Garrett.

With a debut EP called Candy, action centered around two songs: Electric Love, which is out at Triple A, and selling 5000 singles a week (75,000 total to date).

The other track attracting attention is 10,000 Emerald Pools, which is likely to be a follow up at radio.

BØRNS will play the NON-COMMvention Thursday, May 14.

Check out this acoustic version of Electric Love, featuring fellow NON-COMMvention artist Zella Day…
