If you know me and the music bug that's buzzed around my life for as long as I can remember, then you are aware of my tastes for different flavors. The only thing I've ever been able to compare it to is food as I like to mix things up like a chef in a kitchen just to see what it tastes like. And finally after so long of wanting to do this, I'm able to throw several dishes on the table mixed the way I've always wanted them to be and serve them to a small intimate crowd right here in downtown Tyler, Texas.
So what am I cooking? For years,
we've thrown soul, blues and bluegrass around a campfire at Caddo Lake
with close friends. This allowed me to expand on sounds that I was never
able to experience within the guettos
of South Dallas. But while doing this, that music bug would never leave
me alone wanting me to add more to the flavor within those deep Caddo
After twenty years of wondering what it would sound
like, I'm happy to share with you something brand new that no one has
ever done before on stage. We'll be adding soul to the sounds of
bluegrass with David Brashier on dobro, David Burns on drums, my
background vocalists and Nashville's own Chessboxer. Oh yea, I'm in
there somewhere on harmonica and vocals.
Chessboxer is made up
of fiddle player Ross Holmes who was recently on tour with Mumford and
Sons, Matt Menefee on banjo and Royal Masat on upright bass. They will
be joining me between concerts with Bruce Hornsby while performing in
Dallas and then on to a show for Austin City Limits.
