Davíd Garza

Davíd Garza is an Austin-based, American singer-songwriter who infuses rock and pop with a Latin feel and whose vocal style draws comparisons to Freddie Mercury, Jeff Buckley, Donovan and Robert Plant. In 1989, following stints in numerous high-school bands, Garza enrolled in the University of Texas at Austin, where he and his band Twang Twang Shock-A-Boom (named in reference to the guitar, bass, and drums of the group) gained industry attention for Garza's combination of pop-savvy songwriting and Robert Plant-style vocals. After leaving the group to go solo, he formed a new backup band and gigged continually around and outside the Texas area, billed as Davíd Garza & The Lovebeads and later as DAH-VEED. A third generation Mexican-American, David grew up between Dallas and Fort Worth. Before he was old enough to get into clubs, Garza was handpicked by Edie Brickell & New Bohemians to open for them in the funky warehouse district of Deep Ellum. He played solo gigs by night and attended Catholic high school by day.
