The Bigsbys – True Story

In Uncategorized on July 18, 2012 at 3:00 pm

Album Cover“The best songs seem to come from the people and stories you know best, from the things you’ve experienced.” – Alex Smith
True Story, the new album from The Bigsbys consists of stories that are all a little bit true. The Bigsbys are a hard group to fit into a genre, but easy to appreciate. Soul permeates the sound of the band. The Bigsbys music is a merging of Roots Rock, Alt Country, Blues and Soul. The band is comprised of four guys from Palestine, Texas. Alex Smith(Guitar/Lead Vocals) has been writing songs for the better part of a decade, and over the last few years has built a foundation for his words to be heard. Brad Hobson(Lead Guitar/Vocals) brings a bluesy/Indie Rock style to the group that gives the tunes a sound like no other. Russell McClendon(Bass) keeps the vibe funky and fresh from start to finish on every song, and at every show. Joey Tritico(Drums) certainly helps prepetuate the myth Rock N Roll belongs in Texas. The bands sound is unique, and their ability to play to any crowd seperates them from the pack of bands touring Texas. The bands first studio album “True Story” features 10 original compositions by the band recorded at Stormy Cooper’s Studios in Houston, Texas. The album is available now on ITunes, Amazon and Lonestar Music

Sarah Pierce was born in Rockford, Illinois and raised in rural Texas and Colorado. The daughter of a cowboy raised in a family of cattlemen (4 members are in the Cattlemen’s Hall of Fame), Sarah’s dream was to be a singer, a dream that began to take shape when she was 12 years old. Her stepfather was a small town doctor by day and played bass in the local country band on the weekends. One day he asked her to come along and sing a few songs. After one song, Sarah had a gig. “The stage is like a big comfortable couch; I am so at home there.”

This ‘Woody Guthrie in a Cyber World’ grew up in upstate New York along the shores of the Hudson River. At 19 years old, he moved to the Mexican border town of Laredo, Texas and found a job working as the late night DJ on a small radio station. One night, he played ‘Turn, Turn, Turn’ by the 60’s folk rock group The Byrds. As the song played, he recalled seeing the songs writer, his neighbor Pete Seeger, performing in his Dutchess County hometown in New York. By the time the song had ended, he decided to pursue a career as a folksinger

In an apparent attempt to hide any signs of his former career, Jeff Strahan wears his hair so big it makes Lyle Lovett’s former hairdo look like a crew cut. Not that Jeff is ashamed of being a lawyer, but that was his old life. Now he makes music full time, playing all over Texas, with frequent tours to other parts of the United States, combining his stage training from law school with his natural ability to connect with the audience. Throw in a thirst for writing songs that he can play in front of people, a spirituality that has guided him his whole life, and the intelligence to make it all come together, and you’ve got an Americana act that translates around the globe.
