Richard Garvey 9


Victoria, CA   Feb 2015  

Artist Bio

Pronouns : he/him

I love writing songs and performing.
I write with guitar, banjo & ukulele.
Mostly folk but been branching out into more acoustic-pop & folk-rock styles.
I'm in the early stages of producing a new full-length album called light heart.

You can get sneak peeks on socials or on my patreon.

The songs for "light heart" are already written except lyrics for 1 or 2 songs. So hopefully this month!

My more official bio :

Richard Garvey is a guitar-strumming, banjo-plucking, and sing-along-starting performer and community organizer. His award winning songs explore the highs and lows of love, injustice, and the marbled mess of the human condition . Whether he’s playing to a living room or an amphitheatre, Richard brings clever songs and a sly sense of humour to inspire solidarity, hope, and change. If you’re looking for the latest incarnation of world-changing, foot-stomping, and heart-filling folk music, see Richard Garvey.

    Haha ya, I was thinking of going hip-hop with that song, but, I'm trying not to try too many obscure things on one song. Just learning the banjo means that it currently is obscure to me 😁
