Garcia and Scott are authentically Garcia and Scott. Genuine. Artful. Real. They write, produce, record, and perform their own songs and videos. To date, the duo has released two albums: "Garcia and Scott" and "Down in Jimmy's Basement." Presently, the pair is working on a third album. As much as they love writing and performing original material, Garcia and Scott also enjoy putting their own spin on choice covers. As Gary would say "I wish this was a song that we had written!" When they’re not at home in Nashville, writing and recording, you’ll find the husband and wife duo out on the road, performing an energetic and original blend of Rock, Blues, Alt-Country and Latin-Influenced acoustic music at clubs, theaters, festivals, fairs and concert series throughout the south and midwest. Always working to grow, Garcia and Scott have added Europe to their schedule. Performing in Madrid, Barcelona and Dublin. The duo’s signature sound is defined by strong lead and harmony vocals, Scott's rhythmic guitar style and Garcia's percussion. Whether it’s an original, or an originally-arranged cover song, there’s no denying it’s Garcia and Scott. Take it from a fan: "Is it the songs? Yeah, they’re clever, well-crafted and lively. Is it the musicianship? Yeah, that too. Scott sounds like two players at once sometimes. Is it the stage presence? Yeah sure, both Garcia and Scott are having a great time up there. Is it the vocal blend. That’s it! That’s it, right there. Their voices are meant to be heard together. Don’t miss your chance to hear them soon and often!!” -- John Griffin, Host-Juke Joint Shuffle, WKMS Murray, KY
