Diego Garcia, the Argentine-American singer-songwriter and former frontman of indie-rock band Elefant, released his solo debut on Nacional Records last year to much critical acclaim. The crooner is backed by beautiful string arrangements and Spanish guitars for many of the tracks on the contemporary romantic album Laura. With influences like Julio Iglesias, Roberto Carlos and Sandro, it is no wonder the album sounds the way it does. In case you were wondering, Diego and the infamous Laura, the same Laura which the album is inspired by and named after, are now married.
For those in Austin, Diego Garcia will be performing a headlining show in Austin on Thursday, April 19, at Lambert’s. More information and advance tickets are available here. In the mean time, listen to “Roses & Wine” off of Laura below. Submit your email in the widget for a free download.
