Alford is one of
America's great independent, unsigned artists,
as proven by the release of his new self-produced CD "Doc
Garret... Closer to the Sun".
The MP3 samples make the point, and the CD drives it
(check out the
clip, with guest
appearance by Blackfoot guitarist Charlie Hargrett).
How can I describe the sound of the
Doc Garret Band CD
in words alone?
Each song is unique, yet familiar.
Take blues roots, with southern rock guitar styling,
add a pinch of reggae, metal, and inspirational ballads,
and one can begin to conceptualize the variety of music that can be heard on
A healthy dose of beauty with power.
Screaming guitars combined with soulful vocals that rock with a message!
Thought provoking lyrics that evoke the full spectrum of your emotions.
Love, war, birth, death, anger and the awe of the universe
are all a part of this heartfelt musical journey.
Sit back, relax, take your shoes off.
Open your mind, become a part of the cosmic consciousness.
Laugh, cry, party, get mad, make your ears smile.
