Texas Americana Blues. Lyrics work the soil deep. Humor lifts the weight.
NOTES
"...absolute dynamite emotion filled blues... True Texas with a groove..." - Bob Fonda, program director, KFLX

"...Every song is about people moving on, or wishing they could ('I don't want to be the one I'm leaving behind'). This searching for redemption over the next hill, or around the next bend of the river, is of course the great theme of American music. But in Hart's songs you're never sure that the river isn't hopelessly polluted (question for industrialists: 'If you can't taste the poison, what are you made of?'). The landscape becomes almost surreal (back and forth from Desert Storm in 'A Brief History of the 1st Iraq War'). "There are always only more and more questions ('What's a Baby to Do?'). In the end, it's only people and relationships on a human level that can offer any true redemption..."
- Jeremiah Kelley, poet

"Bluesy rock from the heart of Texas, the sort of whiskey smooth voice and stinging guitar that'll have you ordering double shots and a beer back -- even in your own living room."
- Bill Stafford, CD World (Dallas independent record stores)
