GATTISON's (he/him) musical journey began at a young age in the San Francisco Bay area, surrounded by a family of musical talents. Drawing inspiration from his Aunt Dorothy Morrison, vocalist on the 60s hit “Oh, Happy Day,” and cousin Levi Seacer Jr., guitarist for Prince, his music reflects his rich musical heritage.

GATTISON's artistic exploration expanded into the fashion world, where he founded House of Gattison. This fashion line, inspired by his own music, creates wearable art pieces that merge music and style seamlessly.

From his early gospel church roots to his love for Electronic Dance Music, GATTISON's journey represents a fusion of his musical upbringing and evolving interests. His first single, "Picture Perfect," reached #43 on the Dance Billboard charts, receiving recognition from publications like BuzzFeed and Billboard.

With House of Gattison, his luxury streetwear brand, he offers fans a tangible connection to his music through unique and expressive fashion.

His new single "Love Potion", Gattison has created the feel-good love song of the summer. In celebration of the release, House of Gattison launched a special "Love Potion" collection. Inspired by the seductive and captivating essence of Gattison's new single, each piece created as wearable art, capturing the essence of his music in every thread. "Love Potion" is available on all streaming platforms now!
