A gift from Diego Garcia; stream his new album, Paradise, in its entirety
Singer-songwriter Diego Garcia just released his sophomore album, Paradise on Concord Records. Following the critical acclaim of his solo debut Laura in 2011, Garcia recorded another collection of songs with sharp pop melodies and superb, crafty musicianship. Paradise is a captivating and romantic mix of Latin, American and European influenced songs. About his solo career, Garcia says: “For the last four years, I’ve been following my instincts in search of a new sound, a sound that could properly deliver my message on love, or I should say, the malady of love,” he explains. “Minor keys, cello, nylon classical guitars, light drums, and wooden tambourines helped create a vibe for me to accomplish this sound.”
Diego Garcia is doing an in-store performance at Main Street Music in Manayunk tonight at 7PM. WXPN Welcomes Diego to World Cafe Live on Wednesday, October 23rd.
To thank the members of XPN for their support, Diego has made a stream of his new album available in its entirety. Listen to it below, after watching his quick video greeting.
Diego also put together a video playlist of some of his favorite musicians. Watch the playlist here.
