Go Texans! Robert Ellis and The Richards on the River this weekend – Enjoy!

TGIAF (Almost Friday)! Can there  be little else on everyone’s mind outside of The Texans game this weekend? YES! We’ve got some exciting acts coming to town and some local faves to say hello to!

I’m excited about Belles Landing and Robert Ellis on Friday + I’m interviewing the Richards there on Saturday! The Richards have been great about keeping in touch and sending some recordings…wow! Their vocals are so tasty they reminded me of some of the great folk and pop singers of the 60′s but their genre claim is: Texas Reggae – Yow! My interest is peaked. I’ll be sharing my interview with The Richards in a few weeks and you can taste for yourselves!

Robert Ellis is appearing Friday night at Belles Landing:
“Equally inspired by Jackson Browne and George Jones.” -NY Times
 
“the amiable singer projects a Zen sense of calm…whether he’s singing about growing old or getting even. He’s only 22, but sounds well acquainted with both” -Spin 

“Beautifully simple songs that will strike a chord from Tennessee to Trondheim.” -Mojo 

The New York Times quote was what grabbed me – in fact, anything that says George Jones is gonna grab me! Soooo….I did what I always do when something interests me: I headed over to YouTube to check out Robert Ellis. My immediate reaction was: Dan Fogelberg (and not just because of the long hair…), he has that same sense of honesty and personal connection to his music…I never got the feel that either was trying to appeal to a popular audience; but their creations are so heartfelt they can’t help but resonate with millions.
