J. Garza

Born:

John Garza is a Chicago-based musician & composer. John grew up on Chicago's northwest side, having been influenced by an eclectic array of musical experiences: watching Chicago blues on Maxwell street, listening to house and hip-hop on the north side, exposed to traditional and popular Latin-American music at home and in the neighborhood, as well as listening to American rock and pop. At an early age, John was fascinated by the jazz that came on the radio late nights, and that has become his genre of choice in a composing and performing context.
