What's happening, gang? Joel Garcia here, the lead guitarist previously of the metal band, Disruptive Force. I'm a small-town guy from Hellertown, just outside of Bethlehem, PA. I'm here to promote my solo work as best I can in a digestible manner. The sounds I create are coming from an Ibanez classical nylon acoustic, an Ibanez RGD 7-string electric and Garageband, if that counts as an instrument. Some influential bands and artists have been Metallica, Dream Theater, Rush, Paul Gilbert, Yes, Genesis, Frank Zappa, etc.; while my acoustic playing in influenced by more of The Dear Hunter, Tommy Emmanuel, Al Di Meola, Portugal. The Man, Clint Mansell, John Murphy, Yann Tiersen. It's a wild mix, so I suppose we'll see how it all comes together.
I hope everyone enjoys what they hear and I always appreciate feedback and criticism from both fans and other musicians. Let me know what I should keep doing and what to back off of that you think would help the overall sound. I'm always looking to hear from local bands and artists within the area, so if you think we should get to know each other, just shoot me an email. It would be good to hear from you.
Much love, everyone. I'll see you out there.
