Biography

There are multiple artists named The Garden: 1) Gothic / ethereal band from Pennsylvania. 2) Collaboration between David Tagg and Hakobune. 3) Punk duo from California.

1) The Garden was a gothic rock / ethereal wave / shoegaze band from Pittsburgh, PA, United States. The band was formed in the autumn of 1985, with the intentions of pursuing a sound that was not only unique, but also moving. And through the years, Anthony LaCava, Christine Sacramento and Stephen Marlette, with accompaniment by Shelly O’Keefe on bells/keyboards, followed this dream by creating many songs of great substance. The band emerged with an intensely uncommon sound drawn on electronic drum tracks and dark ambient guitar mixed with rhythmic bass, heartfelt lyrics and strong vocals.
Often described as “Pittsburgh’s first gothic rock band”, The Garden has sustained a rather faithful following. Tanya Kavalkovich joined the band in 1996 with her lyrical violin contributing a new warmth and beauty to an already compelling sound. Opening for such acts as And Also the Trees, Wolfgang Press, Throwing Muses, Faith and the Muse, Strange Boutique, Spahn Ranch, Gargoyle Sox, Of a Mesh, FourWay Cross, This Ascension. The Curtain Society, Bella Morte, Eva O.
Heavy employment and academic demands forced Stephen to leave the band in 1997. Christine, Anthony, and Tanya formed a new band with drummer James and vocalist Patricia called Between the Waters
