Garrett Lebeau — new to Austin, via the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming — creates music that’s sultry, substantial, soulful. Most importantly: It never shouts to make its point. Lebeau’s music is striking for its quietness, a welcome respite from this loud and restless world.
On first blush, Lebeau’s vocal style will remind a lot of music fans of Boz Scaggs. His inflection is jazzier, though, and the content more soulful. He wraps his voice around songs, like Van Morrison or Aaron Neville. What’s more: LeBeau is a fabulous electric guitarist, but again on the quiet side. He doesn’t wail. His essence is mature. It’s all about texture and space.
