Michael Garfield

For fans of:Jeff Buckley, Bon Iver, Joseph Arthur, Kaki King, Elliott Smith

Between the personal warmth of songwriting tradition and the whirling electronics of festival culture, Michael Garfield is making music for which new words must be invented – boundary-crossing songcraft and dreamy instrumental etudes both intimate and ecstatic, focused and raw.

Not content to merely push the boundaries of acoustic fingerstyle technique, Michael weaves body, axe, effects, and audience into a greater instrument ecstatically playing itself – taking listeners on a ride through our remixed musical past, present, and future.

At once totally original and strangely familiar, vulnerable and sleek, these tunes recast the familiar songwriter and guitar as archetypal forces in the turbulence and transformation of our planetary renaissance.
