Sweet Tea: Musical Refreshment (EP) Release Date - July 14th!!! 

In the summer of 2014, wracked with back pain and barely able to walk due to all loss of feeling in my left leg, my life suddenly stopped. I couldn’t go to work, or take care of my kids or do any of the many responsibilities required of a single mother of two. It was depressing, it was a blow to my faith, but it turned out to be a gift from God.

Alone and in need of a distraction from the pain of recovering from back surgery, I began to write music. I wrote about my marriage and how it fell apart. I wrote about my kids and the brightness I see in them each day. I wrote about my best friends who always magically show up when I need a glass a wine and some laughs. I wrote about meeting someone new and losing someone I loved. Sixteen songs later, I had a soulful and melodic journal of my life.

In the fall, I recovered and returned to work full time. I fell into my routine and the songs stayed in that journal. Until November. That’s when one of my dearest friends and brother, Jermaine Michael Rollins, collapsed and suddenly passed into heaven.

Shaken to my very core by this event, I pulled the journal of songs out of my desk and promised to finish at least a handful in honor of a man who inspired me and believed in my talent. These are just a few of the songs I am choosing to share with you now. “Sweet Tea: Musical Refreshment” is the name of this collection because its soulful and southern and my given stage name made manifest. You’ll hear some soul, you’ll hear some jazz, you’ll hear some R&B. But more than all that, I hope that you'll hear my heart and that you would feel peace in your day as you listen to this chill music :)

Thanks for listening loved ones!

Peace, love and blessings,
Clarissa Amber Garrett

Hey loved ones! It's February, one of my favorite months of the year. It's a SHORT month (which is awesome). It's a month to celebrate LOVE. It's black history month! All things DOPE in my world. Although I don't have any shows booked this month, I'm still singing at a few events that I'd love to share with you. First, my friend Melissa Sharee is having a show, the LOVE IS SEXY Valentines Day show. I'll be there singing some background vocals and enjoying the music! Also, I've been invited to sing at THE FEDERAL SINGERS NIGHT in North Hollywood! This is an exciting move and a GREAT venue for singers.

Lastly, check out AND DOWNLOAD my single "I Need You (SOUL CRUSH). I have been in the studio recording some good music for you to enjoy in the coming months. I promise to keep my website updated with new tracks, so make sure to subscribe so we can keep in touch!

I'm also working on posting a full video of January 3rd, "THE SHOW", its in editing but can't wait to share it with you.

Ya'll enjoy your month!! LOVE on somebody <3
Fist up in the air for #blackhistorymonth #blacklivesmatter #icantbreathe
Clarissa Amber aka Sweet Tea



I am completely overwhelmed as I write this blog post. I can't even call that a "SHOW", it was more like an out-pouring of love from the people in my life. As I took the stage that night, I saw friends from high school, my moms friends, church friends...my sons teachers!! It was so amazing to see all of your faces and I was so happy to perform for you all!

I hope the message of the night came through LOUD and CLEAR. 2015 is the year to MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE! GOD has your back LOVED ONES! It's time to put behind you the hardships of 2014 and move into the new year with HOPE and determination. My goal was to not just sing you nice songs, but encourage you on your own path to greatness! It was so great to share with you my story during the night and guess what? We are going to do it again!

That's right! After the show, I was invited to return to The Warehouse for another night. Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 23rd at 9 p.m. Tickets will be available closer to the date, I do hope you come and hang and listen to come good music that night!
