Convoy and the Cattlemen
Convoy and the Cattlemen
Convoy and the Cattlemen arose from the city of Arlington, TX, in the heat of the summer of 2010. The six member ensemble, influenced largely by the energy of rock and roll, professional wrestling, pork tacos, and lots and lots of beer, consists of fearless leader and acoustic guitarist, Convoy Cabriolet, a smokin' fast lead guitarist, Toker Ace, a head-bangin' steel guitarist, Hawk Hawglund, a crazy little fiddler, Tandy Hyde, a bona-fide-insane bass fiddler, Slappin' Jimmy, and an out-of-control drummer, Little Big Lech. Together this team of comrades has taken the country-western and punk scene by storm with their one-of-a-kind, highly energetic performance. Convoy and the Cattlemen will be pressing their first set of original tunes to vinyl in the spring of 2013, long after rummaging up one of the best, biggest, and diverse groups of loyal fans in North Texas. Convoy and the Cattlemen have warmed up crowds for the likes of Junior Brown, Nick 13, Eleven Hundred Springs, Two Tons of Steel, and the Whiskey Folk Ramblers and churned up madness of their own doing, on some of the best stages Fort Worth and Dallas, Texas have to offer. You better believe country-western will never be the same. YEE-HAW!!!

Fort Worth's best kept secret of soul, Andy Pickett, is about to drop his first full length record; an eleven song journey through the deep end of love, longing and the inevitable entitled It Happens Every Night. Recorded by Britt Robisheaux and Jeff Ward and produced by Jerry Hudson at Eagle Audio Recording, It Happens Every Night features an all star ensemble including members of Telegraph Canyon and Theatre Fire. The release on CD and digital media via Dreamy Life Records will be punctuated by a live performance with full backing band at The Chat Room on June 13th.

Influenced by such genius as Nina Simone, Bill Callahan and Curtis Mayfield, Andy Pickett has been developing his own artistic style in private for many years. It Happens Every Night is a uniquely seasoned and mature debut from a tremendous talent who has only just decided to share his work with an audience. "I walk the night, that's the best I've done so far / and when I'm done I use your heart as a getaway car," Pickett confesses in the single "I Walk the Night". From the title track, a front porch narrative of nightlife on Hemphill Street, to the sweetly reassuring gospel of pilgrimage "Western Hills," It Happens Every Night fears no caveat in endeavoring the sincere expression of human emotion.
