Poor Lazarus

Growing up around cowboys and ranchers of the Texas Panhandle, his music is heavily influenced by the culture of the west.  Drawing from the same well as his Panhandle music forbearers Terry Allen, Joe Ely, Butch Hancock, and Jimmy Dale Gilmore et al, his compositions strike universal heartstrings from a singularly vast and barren landscape.  His sister taught him to sing and play a 1950’s-era Magnus organ as a child and his passion for music began to be fueled by the popular country and folk artists of the era.
