Touching on country, soul, and Americana, Sean Patrick Garvey’s Obsidian Son delivers songs that lift themselves from the speakers and slow dance gracefully across the room. Deft accompaniment and flourish is wrapped around a core of compelling, immediately engaging melodies, giving the music a timeless resonance. “With the way life moves these days, my time with the muse can be short. I’ll write anywhere a song presents itself to me,” explains Garvey.
There was a time when Garvey had put his guitar down and started working on making a living. The son of a grape grower and winemaker, Garvey grew up in the vineyards of Northern California. Although the feverish rhythm of agriculture was in his blood, it was songwriting that consumed him. Surviving as a songwriter is not for the faint of heart, but then again, neither is farming. There is something inherently uncomfortable about depending on weather and nature for your livelihood. Yet Garvey spent his life watching his father unearth wonder through sustainable methods and advocacy for the rights of farm workers.
When Garvey’s dad needed help farming their family ranch it felt natural to return home. The career change became a sea change for Garvey’s music; he reconnected with the black soil of his youth, the shards of unearthed obsidian, the lives of laborers and stories from the field.
Obsidian Son is a collection of stories inspired by years living in a rural farming community.
