Welcome!

Hi, this is Josh Garey in Berkeley, California. I love writing, recording and performing music of all kinds.

Sun House - On the Rise Again

Sun House delivers a raw, explosive sound that evokes the spirit of 60's blues-rock, melodic hard rock and groovy jams while always taking it somewhere new, as with songs in Japanese about vegetables and the secret rulers of the world (but not in the same song). Featuring Josh Garey on guitar & vocal (Comfy Chair, Gun & Doll Show), Keith Hanson on bass & vocal and Bill Bledsoe on drums & vocal.

White People (eponymous)

White People is the result of two old friends hanging out and recording at their leisure over the course of about two years. Between the two of them, Josh Garey and Morgan Riley generate an "electro-acoustic" sound that combines guitars, vocals & songwriting with DJ cuts, scratches, loops, samples, beats, soundscapes & synthesizers. Dig in.

Power Crazed Dictators

Recorded by Bill "Mudboy" Lackey at his house of horrors in Oakland, CA, the Power Crazed Dictators were happy-go-lucky bakery boys by day and comical anti-heroes by night. Preceding a wave as big as the hip-hop-metal craze that was to follow was a task for only a hearty few. PCD were among them, gettin' down in the 'Town. Featuring Josh Garey, Are Zeeb, Jon Clarence Nelson, Joel Griffin and DJ Pause.
