Garage Voice, Scott Ryan

When: Sat., Dec. 21, 8 p.m. 2013

Like many bands these days that sing about, or are inspired by, Jesus, Garage Voice would not classify themselves as a Christian band. Instead, the three-piece is a rock ‘n’ roll band that also creates gospel music. At the core of the Seattle group’s sound is a Hammond organ and an especially reverberating guitar. On Garage Voice’s recent album Amenin, things go from an upbeat, almost-Motown feel to something more ambient, building layers of sound. Most of the songs last about two minutes, giving you just the right amount of flavor before switching to the next track. This is the kind of music that isn’t afraid to be spiritual while also rocking hard.
