Review

"Garred seems to channel Leonard Cohen, singing with deadpan mystery and grave tone." - THE OREGONIAN

It takes a unique skill set to work as a music therapist at the Oregon State Hospital maximum-security wing. By day, Scott Garred works with the castoffs of society in drum circles, sing-alongs and rock bands. By night he is Super XX Man, bolstered by the spirit of camaraderie in a gentle band consisting of wife Michelle "Polka Queen of NE Portland" Garred sprinkling salt and pepper on accordion, Zach "Fingers" Boyle casting a waterfall of sound on guitar, and Ali "Little Sister" Wesly lending backup vocals, flute and brushed drum. Built on simple melodies, these songs have classic appeal recalling Buddy Holly or early Willie Nelson. Couched in major chord harmonies, the lyrics have an optimistic halo, beckoning the listener to sing along. In so doing, one will sing narratives of life and love that, while not shying away from spirituality, illuminate the dilemmas of being human. In the world of Super XX Man, we are encouraged to find someone to call "darlin," we're inspired to "stroll on through," and we're reminded that amazing grace is a sweet sound.
