Alejandro Escovedo Biography
MChavez_5

There are songwriters who sing their songs, and then there are songs who sing their writers.

Alejandro Escovedo is one with his muse and his music. Over a lifetime spent traversing the bridge between words and melody, he has ranged over an emotional depth that embraces all forms of genre and presentation, a resolute voice that weathers the emotional terrain of our lives, its celebrations and despairs, landmines and blindsides and upheavals and beckoning distractions, in search for ultimate release and the healing truth of honesty. Sometimes it takes the form of barely contained rage, the rock of punk amid kneeled feedback; sometimes it caresses and soothes, a whispery harmony riding the air of a nightclub room, removed from amplification, within the audience.

Good Girls with Bad Intentions
Thursday January 10th

Featuring

Lisa Morales – Leslie Sloan
Robyn Ludwick – Shelley King

LISA MORALES

Following a long-run in the Houston/San Antonio-based folk duo Sisters Morales, Lisa Morales steps out with an astonishingly beautiful solo debut that is as cathartic as it is devastating in its fearless confrontation of grief.

The whole record is littered with pieces of broken heart, but even when she declares “I Am the Weakest,” Morales’ words and voice resonate with strength and resilience. And in “Looking for Something Beautiful,” she storms out of the depths of despair with the most defiant, cheer-worthy cry of stubborn hope this side of Lucinda Williams’ “Passionate Kisses.” -  Richard Skanse

LESLIE SLOAN

Leslie Anne Sloan, aka Miss Leslie started the band Miss Leslie & Her Juke-Jointers – with a real upright piano, bass, pedal steel guitar, telecaster, drums, acoustic guitar, Miss Leslie on fiddle. In 2005, the band released “Honky Tonk Revival” to rave reviews and in 2006 released a follow-up live album recorded at the Continental Club in Houston called “Honky Tonk Happy Hour”.

In 2006-7, Miss Leslie began a prolific period of songwriting. “Between the Whiskey and the Wine” was the result. Recorded at Tommy Detamore’s studio in Floresville, TX. “Tommy as co-producer was so great to work with and the songs just literally fell into place. It was the end of an important journey for me.”

SHELLEY KINGThe music of Shelley King draws from and blends a spectrum of roots music styles, but one word succinctly describes it: soulful. Be it R&B, folk, blues, country, bluegrass or rock — or combinations of and variations on those themes — she delivers the goods straight from the heart with a voice that’s splendidly rich and warm and as big as all outdoors.

Writing “a proverbial trunk full of instant hits and yet-unheard classics,” as the Austin Chronicle describes her songs, King has risen from the vibrant music scene in the Texas capital city to charm fans across North America, Europe and Japan, win two Austin Music Awards, and be named the Texas State Musician for 2008.

Robyn’s critically acclaimed new album features a dizzying cast, including Producer/Multi-instrumentalist Gurf Morlix (Lucinda Williams, Blaze Foley), Ian “Mac” MacLagan (Small Faces, Faces, Rolling Stones), John Ludwick, Eddie Cantu, Gene Elders (George Strait, Lyle Lovett), Trish Murphy, and Slaid Cleaves.

Out of These Blues takes Top 10 Albums of 2011 honors from Austin City Limits, No Depression, Texas Music Magazine and 93.3 KGSR as well as Best Album of 2011 by the Texas Music Scene.


Alex Harvey Returns to Cheatham Street

From Kent Finlay’s Facebook Page:

Back in the late 70′s and early 80′s, when super songwriter ALEX HARVEY and his great band were playing every week at CHEATHAM STREET WAREHOUSE, we had some great times!

Alex was playing the night my oldest daughter Jenni was born. When the show was over, Alex and the band all came over to the hospital to welcome her to Texas, (Texas means the world to me) and to christen her into the world of music. She has been up to her neck in music and the music business ever since.

Alex is coming back to play Cheatham this Thursday (10/11). We will miss our friend Steve Mendel who was the bass player in Alex’s band (and who we lost to cancer recently). Alex has written more great songs than anyone could ever count including DELTA DAWN, RUBEN JAMES (and 16 other great songs recorded by Kenny Rogers), and the list goes on and on.

 

I hope everyone can come out on Thursday to hear my friend ALEX HARVEY. Jenni says she feels like getting born again! -Kent Finlay

Carolyn Wonderland Returns to Cheatham Street on Friday 6/8

Carolyn Wonderland returns to Cheatham Street Warehouse on Friday  night.

Doors open at 8:00pm and The Hems will be opening the show at 9:00pm.

Tickets are available now at www.CheathamStreet.com.

Who is Carolyn Wonderland?

Carolyn Wonderland has the goods. A triple threat with her diverse songwriting, soulful vocals, and guitar goddess status – all featured on over twenty CDs, six of which are her releases – she has a pedigree in this business that’s hard to match. A bit of a renegade, she likes to incorporate elements of Blues, Country, Swing, Zydeco, Surf, Gospel, Soul, and some nights, maybe even a Cumbia into the musical mix. Recent years have seen her stretching out musically working some expert whistling and scat singing into her shows. In addition to her trusty guitar, “Patty,” Carolyn has been regularly playing her trumpet, and even occasionally the accordion, mandolin, or keys…she is threatening to take up nose flute if someone doesn’t stop her… Continue reading
