A connoisseur of traditional honky-tonk, Dale Watson is proof that the spirit of country music's forefathers hasn't been entirely lost to the worlds of arena tours and country pop radio. Watson cites Hank Williams, George Jones and the stoic baritone of Johnny Cash as his influences, which clearly comes through in each of his records. Regular performances on the Grand Ole Opry are pretty much the height of Watson's commercial exposure, as the musician much prefers small, intimate bars in places like his hometown of Austin, Texas to bigger venues. He has, however, managed to tour Europe on a couple of occasions, winning over fans of his no-nonsense, purist approach to the genre along the way.
Texas-born musician Joe Ely has played with everyone from Bruce Springsteen and Lyle Lovett to Uncle Tupelo and the Clash. Ely started his career in the seminal country-folk band The Flatlanders and has since released a string of well-received albums that explore everything from rock to honky-tonk. In his long and varied career, one constant has been the skillful consistency of both his performances and original compositions.
Mike Flanigin is a pianist who grew up on the outskirts of Dallas, in a town called Denton, Texas. Developing a strong affinity for music, Flanigin soon made the move, as most Texas-based musicians do, to Austin, where a thriving night-life scene welcomes any talented musician with open arms. Though Flanigin had only played the piano once before moving to Austin, one night at a music club, he slipped behind the decks of a Hammond B3 organ and was instantly smitten. The instrument connected with Flanigin in some intrinsic way and after three months of practicing with the B3, he was invited to play with a band led by one of the bigger names of the Austin music scene, Doyle Brahmall Sr. It was during this time, Flanigin really started to grow as a jazz musician and after seeing him perform, Steve Wertheimer, a club owner, offered Flanigin the opportunity to serve as band leader for The Continental Gallery, which he was opening up in 2007. Flanigin has since managed to grow by leaps and bounds as an instrumentalist by playing an ardent amount of live shows and is now viewed as a premier Texas session musician who can play nearly any genre with ease.
