Boris Garcia isn't a person but a band, an ensemble that starts with what is called jamgrass  "We're all folkies at heart," remarked one band member  but also fuses a dozen strands of American music into a rich, ever-evolving whole. Bluegrass, jazz, rock, folk, Celtic, soul, blues  you can hear them all. It is a band that didn't even start out to be a band, merely a recording project. But once these old acquaintances started making music together, the music created its own momentum; they played for a friend's party, and realized they were a band, and haven't stopped since.

Casey Abrams, a hyper-literate, generation-hopping songwriter and musician calls his performances "tramp art music".

Like the Depression-era Tramp Artists who created unique works of art from found and cast-off objects, Abrams crafts inspired, uncategorizable songs from a hundred years-worth of records, books and various what-have-yous found in dusty attics and roadside shops.  His sophisticated songs have their roots in Americana, jazz, and the classic singer-songwriter tradition. The idiosyncratic performer is known for infusing ragtime, folk, country blues fingerpicking and jazz chops into a repertoire that ranges from Fats Waller to ELO, and from Stephen Foster to Todd Rundgren.
