Have Gun Will Travel
"This Florida roots-rock / Americana quintet earned critical acclaim with their 2008 debut Casting Shadows Tall as Giants, becoming an NPR favorite and getting regular airplay on PBS's Roadtrip Nation. They're like a cross between Death Cab for Cutie and Wilco, thanks partly to singer/guitarist Matt Burke's earnest, Ben Gibbard/Jeff Tweedy-like croon. His lyrics are both imaginitive and vibrant (and printed in a mock newspaper article style insert!), relating historical tales, heartfelt odes to his hometown, and clever social commentary. The outstanding playing (especially from inventive drummer Jean-Paul Beaubien and viola player Joshua Hernandez) and flawlessly detailed production on rollicking songs such as "Sons & Daughters of the Gilded Age," "Kerosene & Candlelight," and "The Ballad of Asa Dalton" further ensures this exceptional album is no sophmoric slump." - The Big Takeover.. "(HGWT) were well outfitted with striking songs and a great ensemble feel. Brothers Matt and Danny Burke front the outfit with winning personalities and solid chops. Since they played the Americana conference a couple of years ago they've made stops in Music City, so if you're into Band-like, elemental roots-and-roll, check ‘em out". - Music City Roots, Nashville.. "...organic, infectious Americana Pop. HGWT's music has a refreshing immediacy to it... Excellent work, fellows." - American Songwriter.. "My album of the year, so far... All in all, an exceptional and hugely atmospheric album from a band that shows that there is still room in alt.country for experimentation." - Maverick Magazine (UK).. "a dozen catchy, clever songs... splendidly fleshed out with old-fashioned instrumentation and other organic, ambient sounds that augment the record's endearing, back-porch feel." - Metromix Tampa.. "The band crafts Americana with an edge. Taking influences from a bunch of diverse sources and channeling the whole through their own branding. The mix is infectious..." - Alternate Root Magazine.. "Top 10 contender for album of the year..exceptional atmospheric album" - The Roots of Rock (New Zealand).. "...traditional enough to attract the hardcore Americana fan yet different enough to attract those who are not normally impressed" - Discussions Magazine.. "well-written stories wrapped into pop-tinged folk and americana songs." - onechord.wordpress.com.. "Somewhere between indie pop and Americana, and teetering on that line in a way that seems fresher than usual." - brandnewkindof.wordpress.com.. "Postcards... is a masterpiece" - paperpistol.ca.. "Essential Listening" - Ninebullets.net.. "Stellar" - Tampa Bay Times..
Mix one part Texas fiddle and one part Tennessee banjo, add doghouse bass and a splash of guitar and you have a delicious cocktail for your ears known as the Urban Pioneers. This string band hammers out a variety of original songs that encompass old time hillbilly music, western swing, rockabilly, and even a few gypsy type songs for good measure.
The band stays on the road all over the world for over 250 days a year playing anywhere from large festivals to backyard parties to goat farms.
In 1996 Texas is the Reason released their only full length record Do You Know Who You Are? (Revelation Records) combining a structured balance of powerful and melodic guitars, equally measured drums, and an earnest vocal delivery closer to that found on the other side of the Atlantic. As pioneers of emocore, the band’s implosion a year later on the brink of major label success is the stuff of rock lore. Texas is the Reason has since become embedded in the history of emo, if not indie rock as a whole. It’s a legacy Garrett Travis Klahn (front man/guitarist) embraces without the constraints of definition. For Klahn, the eighteen year spread between then and now has been wide, wonderful and packed with wanderlust. Through a journey of various projects—the hook-laden Solea; the shoe-gazing Atlantic/Pacific; and most recently, his first proper solo release - Klahn’s musicianship has flourished. Where at the start of Texas is the Reason he could hardly play guitar, he has since evolved into a polished singer/songwriter. His simple desire for melody and a story remains an inspirational thread throughout. With the coming winter Klahn will release the much anticipated debut single and head abroad with a full band; it’s a follow-up to a number of recent solo tours wherein he road-tested new songs and stripped down old favorites in venues varying from open-air festivals in Belgium to beautifully decaying former dance halls in Scotland. Continuing an adventure equally propelled by the past and fueled by the future.
Klahn will soon release "I Don't Care At All" taken from the forthcoming debut solo album, "Motion For Action" via Rise Records.
Prison Wine is the new folk/rock/country/blues phenomenon taking over the outlaw scene.
