Connor Garvey's songs are like placing folk-funk guitar & ukulele, soulful vocals, and paradoxical metaphors in a juicer- you've never tasted it before, but it's intriguing and delectable so you have to keep drinking. His clever rhythmic guitar and ukulele foundations provide a medium for his most prominent instrument, his voice. His songs draw the attention of the whole room with humor, daring honesty, and grace. Examine Garvey’s musical palette, and you will find songwriting masters like Martin Sexton, David Wilcox, John Gorka, Paul Simon, and Deb Talan (The Weepies) plus hues from artists such as Stevie Wonder, Bill Withers, Catie Curtis, and Josh Ritter. And he listens to a lot of hip-hop. Connor comes to music to write songs. The symbiosis of person and craft leaves Garvey continually growing as a musician and positive soul. His musical resume includes songwriter competition victories, three self-released albums, self booked and promoted national touring, performances with the likes of Catie Curtis, Story Hill, Kevin So, The Bittersweets, Chris Keene, Slaid Cleaves, Jeff Mitchell, and Dan Walker plus heartfelt appreciation from living room crowds to full auditoriums. As Connor’s musical career gains momentum he is bringing with him messages of hope, growth, and love in songs that silence rooms, brighten smiles, and inspires others to sing out.
