David Garza

Composer
Thousand Roses Publishing

David Garza has been turning ears since he emerged from the fertile Austin, Texas music scene with his inimitable blend of alt-rock, Latin folk, and even musique concrete. Through a couple of major-label albums and a trove of indie releases, he's embodied the troubadour, the guitar hero, the post-punk provocateur, the falsetto-wielding overman, the effects-looping mad scientist – but always a storyteller. This prolific genre-jumper has broken music industry barriers while building an enduring catalog of compositions for music, theatre, and film audiences. Handpicked to co-write and perform by the likes of Fiona Apple, Pearl Jam, Nina Diaz, Ben Harper, and Los Lobos, Garza is one of a kind.
