Anthony Garcia is a songwriter, guitarist, and classically trained pianist based in Austin, Texas. His musical style has most accurately been described as “cinematic Americana,” a genre that interweaves songwriting with expanding, quasi-orchestral sections.
Versatile is the best word to describe his live performance; Garcia often switches between genres within a set, and sometimes switches between instruments within a single song. A lover of rock, blues, classical piano, and Spanish guitar, and a fan of soulful vocals and old standards, Garcia’s musicianship and eclectic song choices always keep the audience enraptured and inspired.
Garcia’s style is cinematic Americana, a genre that interweaves songwriting with expanding, quasi orchestral sections.
His 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”.
