Diego Garcia: Artist You Should Know

Written by


I’ve been pretty much obsessed with the song “You Were Never There” for the last two weeks. It’s from Diego Garcia, who used to front NY-based garage rockers ElefantKnowing that band, I would’ve never guessed he had this album of gorgeous, 70’s-inspired tracks with lush strings and Spanish guitars in him. The album, called “Laura,” is a dedication to his wife. Diego has said he made the record to heal his heart — ” In other words, I had to get my girl back.”

This song is most definitely my favorite, but you can hear the entire album streaming as part of our Album Preview series, with a great write up from Anne Litt.
