Recently a new single from David Garfield showed up in my inbox and I was eager to hear more from this talented musician. Especially since this was a song he co-wrote with the legendary Smokey Robinson. While my mind was racing with the possibilities of what these two would come up with, I can safely say that the song they delivered, I Lied, was 180 degrees from what I thought it would be. I was expecting a kind of jazzy R&B number, and what I heard coming through my speakers was some of the sweetest country sounding music that I’ve heard in quite some time. Vocalist J. Paris has a great voice that is perfect for country and the pedal steel, played by Dan Dugmore, adds just the right accents to make this song stand out.
As this is only the second single that I’ve heard from Garfield’s upcoming project, my appetite has been whetted to hear the final project in its entirety. I’m not sure when that will be yet, information has been spotty so far in that regard, but I will surely let you know when I know more about it. In the meantime, keep your eyes open for anything he’s got out, you will no doubt be as impressed by his virtuosity as I have been.
