Layne Elizabeth

Layne Elizabeth opened the last Shaun and Dan  show at Love and War in Texas, Plano on Tuesday, February 6 on TexasSelectRadio.com. Layne is another of the talented young singer-songwriters playing around the Dallas area. She shared her own originals and a couple of cover songs. She has a lovely voice and insights in her songs that belie her age. Follow the link above to know where she’s playing next

Craig Langford is a bassist by profession, but he like’s the “songwriting thing.” Which is good for us because he’s pretty good at it. He illustrated

his talent in a set of original songs. The most touching of which was a song about his mother, entitled simply, My Mom.

Rickey Gene Wright followed Langford on stage. Due to the encroaching storm, Rickey was the last performer of the evening. He played a set of his

Americana music. Songs such as There is Nothin’ Like the Love of a Texas Girl, and Island Red. He played my favorite song of his, the haunting Waitin’ On My Time.

As always, follow the links and hear their songs for yourself. Better yet, go see them play.

Jason Gibson and Mark Purnell

Now that Christmas is over and I’m finally starting to get over the cold I got for Christmas, it’s time to start catching up.

Jason Gibson and Mark Burnaugh opened the show at Love and War on December 19th that Shaun Outen and I hosted. They swapped songs as well as accompanying each other. Their set included Don’t Take My Whiskey and One Night Taco Stand.

Cold Multiple & Domestic

Cold Multiple & Domestic took the stage after Gibson and Purnell. The band consists of Craig Fasken, rhythm guitar and vocals, Craig Smith, lead guitar, Michael Levy on bass, and Matt O’Dea on drums. They play rock and roll and blues. And they do it well.

Dan Roark

The band played songs by Old 97s, Bob Seger, and others. Their set also included originals like the one about Pancho Villa. Fasken said that the first two songs they wrote together were blues songs. Then they played Fifteen Years, one of the two songs.

I followed the band and played a few songs, including Waffle House is a Mighty Fortress, and I Got My Ass Kicked in Nashville from my upcoming cd, Hello Out There. Terry Strange followed me and closed out the evening with a set that included his songs, Angel Song,

and How About the Truth.

It was a great show. Come on out this Tuesday and join Shaun and myself. Come listen or plan to play a few of your songs on TexasSelectRadio.com. Good music, good food, friendly staff. Come join us!

Keep writing the songs that are in your heart.

Peace be with you.
