Garth Reeves has been playing professionally for over 18 years. After cutting his teeth in the halcyon days of the Olympia scene, Garth moved to Seattle to explore that cities burgeoning music explosion. A short of list of bands Garth has been in include: Dangermouse, Nubbin, Goodness, Blue Spark… and now as a solo artist and in collaboration with others, Garth is expanding on a catalog of solo work that mines the roots of American musical vernacular.
After returning to Seattle from a stint in Brooklyn, Garth and producer/keyboardist (and Vashon Island resident) Jason Staczek began recording the follow-up to Garth’s first record Nothing But Time in several Seattle studios. Collaborating notably with Ian Moore, Timo Ellis, Pete Droge and Garth’s regular touring band The Unfaithful Servants (Jeff Fielder, Andy Stoller, Mike Musburger), Garth and Jason are honing the song craft and production style of Nothing But Time, while continuing to mine that albums musical landscapes.
Garth’s album Nothing But Time, released in 2005, was made using analog tape, an old Trident board, and a tight knit group of Vashon and Seattle musicians (Jason Staczek, Pete Droge, Rob Brill, Jeff Fielder, Andrew McKeag, Carrie Akre, Danny Newcomb, and Dan Tyack, and others). The result is a stunning and emotional record deeply rooted in tradition.
