Sean Garrett is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer. Garrett Hamler was born on March 30, 1979 in Atlanta, Georgia . Because his father was in the U.S. military, Hamler never stayed in one place for too long. He transferred from army bases between England and Germany since he was four years old.
Hamler gained an interest in music early on and began performing at various talent shows. His performances led to him getting signed to Ariola/BMG at the age of 17.
When he returned to the United States after graduating with an A.A. in business from the University of Maryland’s program in Germany, Hamler began writing songs.
Hamler, better known by his stage name, Sean Garrett, is responsible for a lot of chart-topping singles. He is responsible for writing Usher’s “Yeah”, Ciara’s “My Goodies”, Pussycat Dolls’ “My Buttons”, Britney Spears’ “Toy Soldiers”, Mario’s “Break Up”, and Teairra Mari’s “Make her Feel Good”.
Sean Garrett has co-produced a string of hits for Beyonce such as “Ring the Alarm”, “Get Me Bodied”, “Upgrade U”, “Diva”, “Video Phone”, and “Check on It”.
Sean Garrett is well on his way to becoming one of the top producers of his time. He has produced eighteen number one singles in seven short years. This has allowed him to be ranked No. 5 on Billboard’s list of producers with the most number one hits.
He is the first producer to achieve this amount of success in less than a decade since George Martin; Martin produced 20 No. 1 hits in 6 ½ years. Garrett, however, is the only hip-hop producer mentioned on the list.
