McGarvey's debut solo cd, Tell Your Mother, earned raves from publications ranging from Time Out New York, the Chicago Tribune, Philadelphia Weekly and Performing Songwriter magazine. The disc was also included in several year-end "Best of " lists in both the US and UK.
In late 2006, McGarvey finished mixing a new collection of songs entitled Beautiful Mess, and is currently shopping the new material.

McGarvey maintains the melodicism on Beautiful Mess but the overall tone musically and lyrically is far more intimate than his debut. Songs like "Girl Meets God" and "Citizens' Band" reveal debts to artists like Elvis Costello and fellow Upper Darby native Todd Rundgren while "Gone, Gone, Gone" has the flavor of a 1960s technicolor film score and "Please Don't Go"--with its portraits of the desperate lives being lived in the fictional town of New Jerusalem--is the closest thing to suburban Gospel music you'll ever hear.
