INDIE ARTIST OF THE MONTH: TMT-TV with Cody Hughes Davidson
Cody Hughes Davidson(Feb 2008) The Cody Hughes Davidson Band was formed in October 2005. Cody, at age 25, is the youngest member of the group, but don't let his age fool you. He is a self-taught musician who has been singing and writing his own style of Texas/Red Dirt music since high school. Cody started by performing acoustic shows, opening for Aaron Watson, Doug Moreland, Ryan James and Charlie Robison also playing for any and everyone who would listen, including the smallest of bars and largest of backyards. more >
Adam Carroll: Slow Burn
Adam Carroll - Photo by Steve Circeo(Feb 2008) I sat down with Adam Carroll after a weeknight show at Gruene Hall. It had been one of those small acoustic shows in the bar area, and Adam had invited a few guests join him, most notably Mark Jungers. The majority of the forty or so people who were in attendance were there to listen to the music. That's my kind of show. We did the interview at one of the picnic tables in the dancehall area, Townes Van Zant playing in the background. more >
CD/DVD REVIEW: The Band of Heathens - Live at Antone's
Band of Heathens - Live from Antone's (Feb 2008) In an age when solo artists abound and lone singer/songwriters front mediocre bands, the Heathens present three skilled vocalists with top-notch musicianship. When many in Texas seemed concerned with becoming the next Cross Canadian Ragweed, the Heathens offer up a more palatable dish of Lone Star lonesomeness and Southern fried hospitality. And while most of today’s acts wouldn’t even dream of doing the requisite (and often unnecessary) live album until they’ve got two or three studio albums under their belt, the Heathens have begun their careers with two back-to-back live gems. more >
Catching Those Bluebonnet Blues
Bluebonnet Blues Festival 2008 (Feb 2008) Beyond the wide-open Texas skies and the fields of wildflowers that come into bloom every spring, there’s not much blue about the town of Marble Falls. It’s a place where people come to have fun, to play on the lakes and in the hills, to get away from their ordinary lives, and lose themselves for a while in good times. No matter how beautiful or peaceful, every place has a connection to the blues, to that feeling of sorrow that is just plain part of being human. Marble Falls, for instance, is the only town in Texas that was planned by a blind man. more >
CD REVIEW: Scott Wiggins Band - Burn
Scott Wiggins Band - Burn (Feb 2008) An addictive guitar riff bookends "Was It Worth It," the first song on Scott Wiggins Band's Burn, and addictive may be a good way to describe the songs the band presents to listeners on this record. They didn't blow me away the first time I listened, but they kept circulating around inside my head until I gave them another listen. And another. And another. While I'm still not blown away, I do seem to be, well, addicted. more >
