“The Blues spoke to me, the raw unadorned honesty is what still motivates me musically.
“It spans all styles. When I say soul, I mean ‘SOUL’ you know when music has it. I am not speaking of some narrow definition for a style of music. I speak of music with spirit about life … the trials and tribulations of the working man. Folk music is kin in spirit as is most music that I love. My goal is to connect with other like-minded human beings, to keep the tradition of soul music alive. Where you write, play and sing from your own self – just like the early blues musicians. Feeling has no genre.”
Rise to the Grind is Garrett Lebeau’s debut album on Jimmy Lefave’s Music Road Records.
