Live Music: Anthony Garcia
February 28 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Anthony Garcia is a songwriter, guitarist, classically trained pianist and vocalist. Currently based in Austin, TX, Garcia’s hometown is Lubbock, TX, where he draws inspiration for the mood and vastness of his music. His style is cinematic Americana, a genre that interweaves songwriting with expanding, quasi orchestral sections. Garcia’s music mixes a range of influences: guitar solos reaching back to the guitar hero tradition of Zeppelin and Hendrix; lyrics and songs that pay homage to Townes Van Zandt and Leonard Cohen; and haunting violin inspired by J.S. Bach. Garcia’s music has been described as “mariachiesque Queens of the Stone Age”; ˜like something out of a Cormac McCarthy Novel”; songs that seem like they’re the ˜missing tracks from a Robert Rodriguez soundtrack”; and in Paris, France as “Americana Hypnotique”. Garcia has toured several times over the past few years in France, Germany, Ireland, and most recently Switzerland, and when stateside, divides his time between Austin and West Texas, expanding dates into New Mexico and occasionally Colorado.
