The jon garner trio is the newest project from veteran San Diego musicians Jon Garner, Rich Wright, and Michael Cannon. Combining serious chops with musical maturity, the group crafts music that is both full of pop sensibilities, and yet allows room for the musician to create and explore on the fly. In short, music that sounds good to people of any generation, yet is fun enough to perform for generations.
The guys in this group have played in every imaginable style over their careers and bring that knowledge with them as they shape the jon garner trio sound. Consisting of Jon- Gtr/Vox, Rich-Acoustic Bass, and Mikey-Drums/Percussion, the sound is obviously organically rooted. The trio format allows the music to breath and for the players to stretch out, especially in their exciting live performance; deconstructing and reanimating the music in real time, real funky time.
The sound can be described as alternative soul or indie funk. The song “Holiday” draws on indie pop, with a Stereolab type beat and floating pop melody with a touch of soul inflection. “Mission” and “Watermelon Girl” are global hybrids of American groove and late 70’s Brazilian funk, similar to music legendary Brazilian artist Jorge Ben-jor. “If I” is a classic Motown or Stax Records type groove. Even the Americana torch song “Laces” contains a steady pulse, a bounce that is crucial to the jon garner trio sound. This is music designed to move you and get you moving at the same time.
