Boris Garcia isn’t a person but a band, an ensemble that starts with what is called jamgrass (“We’re all folkies at heart,” remarked one band member) but also fuses a dozen strands of American music into a rich, ever-evolving whole. Rock, Folk, Celtic, Soul, Psychedelic/Bluegrass – you can hear them all. They masterfully blend acoustic and electric instrumentation, with Americana roots sensibility.
Boris Garcia has seen significant commercial airplay charting AAA and Americana pacing them “outside” most of the Jamband crowd,” real song’s that resonate” despite any monikers or genre classification.
Boris Garcia has just released their 5th studio album “It’s Time for Tea” produced by Tim Carbone. Joining them in the studio were Dave Mattacks (Fairport Convention, XTC, Jethro Tull), Mike Robinson (Railroad Earth), and Bill Patton (Father John Misty).
