I’m a singer/songwriter based out of Longview, Texas. Over the last year I’ve debuted my third national release, a new live CD – “A Life Well Read”, played at festivals, house concerts, and many other venues in 17 different states and Canada. In total I did 175 shows in 2016.

“When I ran into Keith Rea at the Mucky Duck on a recent trip to Houston, I was immediately intrigued with his new CD just from the title, “North Bound Train”. As I have a song called “South Bound Train” I was interested on his take on the rails going in the opposite direction. I recently have shared the dreamy “Paradise Shoes” with my listeners. Other highlights, for me, include the title track, “North Bound Train”, the jazzy “Honeysuckle Wine” the Celtic flavored “Dunkeld” and “Don’t Blame Me”. The album is solid throughout. ”

“With a sound that hovers somewhere between folksy observational story-telling, an old-fashioned country vibe and West Coast singer-songwriter fare, it's probably best to file him directly in the `Texas Troubadour' box and leave it at that. Of course, that puts him in the company of songwriting greats such as Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark and Eric Taylor, so I'm sure he won't mind. ”
