Reviews from Around the World

“This was a concert of valour, of truth and perspective and in songs such as the night’s opener April Come She Will and the delightful (The) Boxer, aided by a single acoustic guitar played with generosity of spirit by Tab Laven, Art Garfunkel gave the audience just exactly what was needed; the sight of seeing a master of his art on stage.”

 

- Ian D. Hall

The Philharmonic Hall; Liverpool, England

“Art’s sharing of prose, poetry, musings and personal sketches was a thoughtful interlude whilst relaxing his vocal chords between songs.  His accompanist was a guitar virtuoso who made the show an acoustic delight.”

 

Bergen Performing Arts Center

- Englewood, NJ

“Thanks again for the concert in Hamburg. As all in the audience agreed, your guitar playing was amazing and really made the concert special by giving such an incredible support to Art’s voice!

A Musician's Life

Tab Laven is an exceptionally gifted guitarist and singer/songwriter who is currently on a highly successful two-man world tour with Art Garfunkel.

 

Tab Laven started his career at 21 years of age performing world wide with Mary Macgregor (Torn Between Two Lovers). Over the years he has played with Michael Johnson (Bluer than Blue), Harry Connick, Jr., George Jones and many more. He toured with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s John McEuen’s Great American Road Show, made several appearances on The Grand Ole Opry TV Show, the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and many more.

 

His debut album of self-penned songs, Cranberry Red Balloon, features him as the lead singer and guitarist, with Art Garfunkel joining him on the title track.  Laven’s voice has been described as dreamlike and soulful, reminiscent of Peter Gabriel.  Each song on this landmark album feels like an old friend; familiar and nostalgic. The CD includes pedal steel guitar virtuoso Paul Franklin (Dire Straits) and other notable Nashville session players.  Background vocals include Bruce Johnston (Beach Boys), Vicki Peterson (The Bangles) and John Cowsill (The Cowsills).

 

Tab is currently in the studio working on a new CD in between tour dates.

Listen to the Album

Tab’s self-penned album with background vocals by Art Garfunkel, Bruce Johnston (Beach Boys) Vicki Peterson (The Bangles) and John Cowsill (The Cowsills).

“The beautifully produced songs all have a kind of  Southern California, sun-kissed quality.”

 

 - Lahri Bond Music critic

“Tab's subtle and breathless voice compliments the music by being both laid back and engaging at the same time. " The music's arrangement is both elegant and quietly lush, showcasing Tab's guitar playing and accenting his soft phrasing.”
