Wookie Garcia / Press

““Eleven songs about life, love and the pursuit of happiness in the modern world…” That’s a pithy enough description but it doesn’t quite do justice to Chula Vista’s Wookie Garcia regarding their excellent debut. Wookie Garcia is a quartet led by guitarist/vocalist Kyle Ince whose songs dominate the material on Songs from Ray’s Garage. Bassist Mark Tucker and drummer Jason Sumner-LaRussa lay down a solid foundation but what I’m really digging is the sound of lead singer Brian Sharkey’s voice – the guy has really great timbre and knows just where to place himself in the mix (he also contributes a fair amount of songwriting muscle to the proceedings as well). Organist and pianist Robert Fedeli isn’t listed as a member of the group but he really ought to be because his Benmont Tench-like textures really fill out the sound wonderfully. Wookie Garcia has a warm, life-affirming sound and they appear to have good times ahead. Check ‘em out when you get the chance.”
