FRI. OCT. 10, 2014 BRANDON MCDERMOTT & KEVIN ANDERSON

BRANDON MCDERMOTT BANDFrom Galveston to Houston to  College Station and all the way up to Amarillo, the Brandon McDermott Band has been bringing their exciting brand of Texas country music to stages across the  Lone Star State. The Brandon McDermott Band started in College Station, TX while McDermott was attending Texas A&M University and began writing songs and playing at open mics around town. After moving back to his       hometown of Galveston and playing some solo acoustic shows, he met up with island musicians Kevin Anderson (lead guitar/vocals/harmonica), Clark Duhon (bass) and Broc Adams (drums/harmony vocals), to form the rest of the band. It didn’t take long for audiences to take notice and start filling up local venues to watch them play.  It wasn’t long before their fans started requesting an album and so the band listened.       http://brandonmcdermottband.com/

FRI. OCT. 17, 2014 CALVIN STANLEY

Calvin StanleyMany alt-rock bands attempt, and fail, to create gripping atmospheric music. Sadly, most slip into soporific doldrums or overwrought sentimentality. Houston’s Pale is not one of them. Its new release, High Up and Away, strikes just the right balance of rocking aggression and gentle emoting.

Songs like opener “Salvation of the Rabbits” (a possible breakthrough hit) reveal a late-’80s influence, when alt-rock was still a post-angst-ridden, pregrunge sound. Good money says there are at least a few Chameleons records on these kids’ shelves. Singer Calvin Stanley, meanwhile, is another front man who employs the Jeff Buckley Falsetto (not that there’s anything wrong with that). Yet when Stanley emotes, it’s far from overblown — it’s simple, clean and precise. He delivers the goods, then moves on without wallowing in over earnest keening.

Look for truly transcendent moments in songs like “Psalm,” which employs ethereal keyboards and nostalgic guitar lines that grab you and won’t let go until the tune’s five minutes and 46 seconds are up. Of course, when it’s time to go, the guys’ll stand at the door and implore you to please let them stay a little longer. And you’ll give in, especially when Stanley massages your ears with his sensual “Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo.”

FRI. NOV. 21, 2014 RICHARD DOBSON – JANET AND WRECKS BELL OPENING

Richard DobsonRICHARD DOBSON “Dobson writes in the pithy, down-to-earth style that is at the heart of country music. He traffics in down-and-outism and that spirit-whatever it may be – that gets people through hard times and toughens them without numbing their sensitivity.”  Dale Adamson

http://www.richard-j-dobson.ch/

Inspired by the example of Kris Kristofferson and the records Bob Dylan had made there, I moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 1971, beginning a series of peregrinations back and forth to Texas that continued for almost three decades. In the late seventies I began a series of newsletters published in an English fanzine called Omaha Rainbow. I recorded my first LP, In Texas Last December, an album of original songs released on Buttermilk Records, a small Houston based label in 1977. I began selling records overseas by mail order. I began touring Europe in the eighties, which led to a recording deal with Brambus Records in Switzerland, an affiliation that has lasted to this day.

Occasionally people ask me if I’ve been able to make a living at this business, and I’ve always answered that while you couldn’t call it a living, I wouldn’t trade the life. Music has enriched my existence immeasurably and brought so much joy, I would be a fool to complain about the hard times. A privileged and ancient profession, music can open doors and take you to places where the rewards are not counted in money. It is a window on the world like no other. Looking back I can truthfully say I have few regrets. only sometimes I wish I had kept up with those piano lessons.

Seth Walker

SAT. NOV. 22, 2014 SETH WALKER

300x300 Seth Walker Yes, he is coming! The driving delivery and infectious down-home style of Seth Walker’s voice and songs resonate with Blues and Roots music. Although he is heavily influenced by guitar players–B.B. King, T-Bone Walker and Snooks Eaglin to name just a few, Seth also has a great gift for songwriting in the blues idiom. “These songs sound like classics– matter of fact, they are!” says Chris Tomlin, Gold Record recording artist. http://www.sethwalker.com/music.html

SHAKE RUSSELL, MIKE HEARNE AND MIKE ROBERTS

Shake Russell. To fully appreciate and comprehend the magnitude of Shake’s contributions to music, one need only listen to his life’s work. From his 1976 album, “Songs on the Radio,” to the 2006 CD, “Love is Why,” Shake’s music is a testament to the reasons why he is so widely celebrated as a Texas music legend. http://shakerussell.com
