The Gallows Drifters / Bio

We'd like to thank Machete Western, Purple Stick Pin, Thom Tex Edwards, and The New Mystery Girl for there interest in our music and help playing shows with us across Austin this year. Cheers! Also, thanks to Amelia Cowens and Studio 57 for there expertise in our current recording sessions. Special thanks to my family for their support and great musical history lessons through out life, Rob Whitehead at Tweak Freq Studios for his recording, engineering and mixing work, Todd Thompson for his top notch keys, Ed the flying trumpet man for his wonderful work, Casey from Belton, TX for her awesome cello playing, and Esme West for her beautiful cello additions.

We do our best to tell a brooding tale of deceit and hardship through instrumental works.

............The music is based on a short story of a lone stranger traveling in the old west. Through a series of tragic events, loses his horse in to a murderous barron, 
and in a fight of vengeful retaliation eventually gets hung by the law. 
Honest man in a cruel cruel world..................
