Best known as one-half of the internationally acclaimed Thievery Corporation, Rob Garza’s career includes over two decades of pushing conceptual boundaries to the forefront of a flourishing electronic music movement.
Rob Garza’s fascination with musical discovery began at a very young age. As a kid he was drawn into a wide range of styles, beginning with Punk and New Wave. His interest deepened when he discovered the unbridled creativity that lay at the edge of electronic music. Once he began experimenting with synthesizers, his descent into deep genre exploration just blew up.
Garza’s exploratory nature ultimately led to the creation of the pioneering electronic musical outfit; Thievery Corporation. In the late ‘90s, Thievery became renowned for their ability to blend sounds both underground and global, incorporating Brazilian, Jamaican, Indian and other world influences.
Over the past 25 years, Rob Garza has brought legends to his recordings with Thievery Corporation the likes of David Byrne, Perry Farrell, The Flaming Lips and more. Beyond the studio, Garza has toured internationally for over two decades, headlining some of the most prestigious music festivals in the world and sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in music. His music has appeared in countless soundtracks for film, television, and commercials, including his work with Thievery Corporation on the GRAMMY award winning soundtrack Garden State. He wrote and recorded the score for “Enter The Tomb – VR Experience Tutankhamun,” which was nominated for a Positron Visionary Award at the Cannes Festival in 2020. While keeping active with all that, Rob also works to bring together music, culture and humanitarian work with his hands-on contributions to the World Food Programme’s efforts in Africa and Nepal.
