Ernesto Garcia Jr. has been a performing musician for over 20 years. Hailing from El Paso, Texas, his original band (Sour Mash Jack) performed throughout the southwest and generated enough buzz to warrant a move to SoCal in early 2000. After spending years in the trenches of LA playing, touring and recording with many amazing and talented artists (El-Vez, Kristian Hoffman, Laughing with Lulu, Erik Penny, Ann Magnuson, Billion Stars), he is now in San Diego writing and performing his own material. Through the magic of Craigslist he has since stumbled upon some amazing musicians and good friends... Josh Cherichetti (guitar), Joel Shedroff (bass), Ryan Shultzaberger (percussion), Candice Earnhart (vocals/guitar/accordion) and Aaron Luke (drums/vocals). "Dark Matter" was their 2012 debut, "Wishing for Boredom" their 2014 sophomore effort and "Live in Long Beach" is their first live release. They have since toured the southwest a bit, ventured up the west coast, recorded a new EP "Circle of Willis" and are hoping to do more of the same soon. They are currently working on their third full length release. Watch for a show near you soon...
