Garrett T. Capps back on European soil this June10-03-2020
Garrett T. Capps is like a country artist without a country. Or more like a country artist without a planet. Space country is what he likes to call his music to attempt to convey the atmospheric and psychedelic flavoring of his brand of honky tonk. It’s a little bit out there, which means he doesn’t fit nice and snug into any specific niche of the country and Americana scene. That’s not to say he doesn’t have a home. In San Antonio, Garrett T. Capps is considered a honky tonk holdout and hero in a city where such characters are few and far between.
Sure, George Strait is often associated with the Alamo City, but more by proximity than close association. Steve Earle left a long time ago, and was always more alt than country. Meanwhile Garrett T. Capps has been doing what he can to establish a beachhead for old school country in San Antonio, helping to open the Lonesome Rose honky tonk on Mary St. last year that has since become the spot where a lot of the Austin honky tonkers play when they want to take the two hour trip south. Garrett T. Capps is San Antonio’s ambassador for all things twang and interplanetary travel.
NASA country singer/songwriter Garrett T. Capps released his third studio album "All Right, All Night" in August of 2019 via Shotgun House Records. Drawing inspiration from the Texas culture he grew up around, the San Antonio-based artist delivers a distinct collection of songs rife with expansive modular synth arrangements, old world twang and visceral ruminations on life, death, love and religion. While his next album is almost completed, with a TBD release date, Capps has been hard at work taking his current catalog to the road with his raucus live show and unique charisma. For this tour he will bring along his countrified rock n' roll ensemble, "Los Rippers". Expect an intense fiesta.:
