Connor Garvey’s songs are like placing folk-funk guitar & ukulele, soulful vocals, and paradoxical metaphors in an electric juicer- you’ve never tasted it before, but its intriguing and delectable so you have to keep drinking. His clever, rhythmic string foundations provide a background for his most prominent instrument, his voice. His songs draw the attention of the entire room with humor, daring honesty, and grace through “a universal message that people can grab hold to just the kind of thing I needed.” (Dennis Bigelow-Music Director of KRFC-FM) It is this conection with his audience that makes Garvey wonderfully successful in his live performances where he invites the them to share in the beauty of the moment- the shared night of music.
“Garvey’s sandy tenor, attention to rhythmic detail and winsome way with a melody bring to mind the music of Paul Simon in his Rhymin Simon days as well as contemporaries Josh Ritter and Jason Mraz” writes music blog Direct Current. The entertainment publication The Portland Phoenix describes Garvey’s style as “Martin Sexton-ish jangle-funk, Mraz-y confessionals, and a very clear voice.” Time and again he is heralded for his unique voice, approach, and ability to connect with the listener- qualities that are necessary for a long career. http://www.connorgarveysongs.com/
