Garrett began creating music art at the same time that such art began to chronicle the establishment of the Austin music scene in the early 1970s. Over the course of the next two decades, Texas’s capital city became a world-renowned music mecca, and Austin music artists played a vital role in capturing and sharing the vibrant culture swelling within what would become the “Live Music Capital of the World.”
Describing the evolution of the Austin music poster, Garrett richly and poignantly details the history of the music, musicians, and venues that brought the surprising harmony of “the Austin sound” to a country otherwise polarized by antagonistic cultural, social, and political perspectives.
