Happy to announce the release of Somebody’s Darling’s new album Adult Roommates. They played their CD release in Dallas, TX at Trees to a packed house. This album was such a treat to produce on as I was able to work with friend and insanely talented engineer Matt Pence at Echo Lab in Argyle. Check it out on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/adult-roommates/id905061275
Here are a few quick pics from the great Will Bolton (http://wbolton.com) from the Kirby Brown sessions at FAME studios in Muscle Shoals. Got to meet and spend some time with some heroes of mine on this trip – Spooner Oldham (keyboardist on Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, etc hits) and Rick Hall (legendary producer with his thumb on over 350 million singles sold worldwide). Can’t wait for everyone to hear this special forthcoming album from Kirby Brown: Songs for Re-Entry. Headed to my main spot back in Dallas for overdubs: Modern Electric Sound Recorders.
The Roomsounds have teamed up with director Will Von Bolton (wbolton.com) and released a brand new music video for their smash single, “Couldn’t Break My Spirit”. Check it out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiJVlJAHZNU

Phil Hamilton’s “Bad” recently hit #1 on the Texas Regional Radio Report with over 2,000 spins reported in the week. The single also peaked at #2 on the Texas Country Charts. Phil and I wrote the song together in one sitting back in November 2011, and we knew we had something special the moment we put the last words down on paper. Thanks to the tasty mixing done by Tony Lash up in Portland, this song was destined for big things! Watch out for some more big singles this summer and pick up a copy of his LP Renegade Rock n Roll on iTunes!

“Today marks the iTunes release of Dovetail‘s debut album, Mount Karma. With vibe to spare, the Dallas hippie-rockers are offering twelve tracks or classic rock and pop influenced sunshine.
Mount Karma was produced by Dallas guru Beau Bedford, a man who’s been writing/performing/engineering an impressive army of big bluesy pop and 100-proof rock & roll with the level-perfect mix of soul, grit, and spit-shine. Alongside Dovetail, Mr. Bedford is responsible for the most recent efforts of Larry g(EE), The Roomsounds, and Kirby Brown–all of them, records insisting to be turned up to ’11.”
Epically kind words Majestic Show! Thank you… Thank you… And please, turn it up to 12. Check out Dovetail’s live performance of “Story” recorded and filmed at my cabin:
