Go look for him on youtube. Especially a video by LaBlogotheque.

We don't try - something you've heard a million years before, and suddenly everything makes sense

Saturday- It's something so intimate, i wonder how he could sing it for anyone else

ok, won't go on.

The deep piano sounds, the cellos are yearning

He's also beautiful
rufus, elliott, sufjan, whatever.

Imagine a field in Dakota or Iowa, or better yet get one and everything will fall into place

I was introduced to this album via Yahoo Music Launchcast Radio and loved the songs I was hearing so much I bought this CD. If you like some of the popular artists like James Blunt, Damien Rice and Jack Johnson then you will love this. A collection of very eerie, meloncholy tunes with almost whispered vocals at times, this album is a nice collection of background music for relaxing. Relief is my persoanl favourite and is a deep emotional song which inspires reflection. Highly reccommended!

Chris Garneau, next big thing 18 Mar. 2007
By B. Rose - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I predict it right here, right now. Chris Garneau is the next big thing. The next James Blunt, the next Damien Rice. Tou-shay, Garneau, for simply being you.

In this not-so-indie world, it's an extremely rare occurance to buy a CD that you can actually listen to straight through. Where it doesn't get old after two listens. Where every song is... actually good! Chris Garneau has shattered that world with Music for Tourists.

Each song is like a lullaby - my favorites being "We Don't Try", "Sad Song", and "Saturday". There is a certain child-like tragedy that comes with his voice and music - when you can hear him hit the piano pedals, inhale before notes, and actually FEEL something. Each song feels exceptionally personal - you can see into him, where a piece of you lies somewhere in the very center of each amazing, heartbreakingly beautiful piece. To the point where it's unclear whether to cry, smile, or finally make something of yourself.

Music for Tourists is one of those albums that is good for any mood or setting. Listen in the car, walking around town, or just as background music, reading a book, or before bed. It relaxes you while making you feel something, how many other artists can make that kind of claim?

Included is a great cover of Elliot Smith's "Between the Bars", as well as an incredible myriad of instrumentations throughout the album.

If your ears could talk, they'd tell you to buy this album. So do it.

Who knew tourists could be so fun!

An album of adult lullabys. 19 Feb. 2007
By Jennifer Cole - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Music for tourists- Chris Garneau (whimsical pop album)

Songwriter Chris Garneau excels at creating a lullaby-esque genre, while incorporating a zealous chord-driven piano and swaying instrumentals-bass, cello, french horn, percussion. His voice is like a less convicting Damien Rice, full of whispery singing; but still while the sound is pretty, the lyrics do provide wrenching meanings. The music is soft and constant, but rocks all the same. I suggest tracks 1,8,12,13. It's kinda funny track five talks about hamburger helper. Also covers Elliot Smith's "Between the Bars", which is absolutely not comparable. His lyrics are also pretty emo-indie, a little dismal, but adds to the quality.

Cet ablum est une vrai perle, magnifique et doux sans jamais être triste. Arrangements d'une très grande classe. Un voyage à faire et à refaire.

A good effort 21 Nov. 2009
By Maggie 333 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
You know, it seems that people love or hate this album. This is one of those albums that you have to be in the mood for - when you're in the right melancholy, pensive mood, he's great. If you're looking for upbeat, however, you'd best move on. The sparse production on the tracks gives the album an almost tactile feeling. It's definitely worth checking out a few tracks before committing yourself, because he doesn't mix things up very much.

Lovely Music 24 Jun. 2009
By Lotte - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a great album that I can totally chill out to. I listened to this album on a trip to Germany which was quite ironic because the name of the album is "Music for Tourists". I would recommend checking out Chris Garneau's myspace page to get a feel for his music before you purchase it. It may not be for everyone...but I thoroughly enjoy his music.
