The Idle Hours (Marc Lacuesta & Alfa Garcia)

Alfa Garcia Plus

Hi! We are The Idle Hours: two musician-songwriters who met at a Nashville dinner party one February day in 2011.

After bonding over music, wine, and silly conversation, we thought we'd try writing songs together. Marc (Lacuesta) had been in the Nashville music scene as an engineer/producer for more than 10 years. Alfa (Garcia) had been songwriting and playing solo since 1998.

Hi! We are The Idle Hours: two musician-songwriters who met at a Nashville dinner party one February day in 2011.

After bonding over music, wine, and silly conversation, we thought we'd try writing songs together. Marc (Lacuesta) had been in the Nashville music scene as an engineer/producer for more than 10 years. Alfa (Garcia) had been songwriting and playing solo since 1998. But the world of co-writing was new to both of us. Miraculously, we didn't kill each other after writing our first song together. Half a year later, we are 7 songs in and recording our debut EP!

It might sound cheesy, but even though we are 2000 miles apart, music keeps us together. We write our brand of indie-pop-folk for lots of reasons - to get stuck in your head, to set a mood - but mostly, to package our endlessly idle hours of conversation into 3-4 minutes of musical goodness.

We get a lot out of what we write. We hope you will too.
