Eleven Hundred Springs plays real country music. The kind Hank Williams and Waylon Jennings played. With their classic country sound EHS are part of a current semi-rebellious Texas music movement to "Take Country Back" from Nashville much like the Outlaw music movement did back in the 1970s.
With the release of their sixth full length studio album, This Crazy Life, Eleven Hundred Springs carries on their musical tradition, blending influences ranging from classic country, country rock, swing, rockabilly, and bluegrass yet still sounding distinct and original.
The album was recorded in the heat of the summer in Ft. Worth, Texas’ Wavelight studios. From the opening title track, (a lament of life on the road) to the hard-driving party anthem “Great American Trainwreck”; This Crazy Life gets off to a toe-tapping start. The album’s first single “Show Me The Money” speaks to an emotion that people in these troubled times are sure to relate to. This Crazy Life also offers stand out tracks for fans of the more “Singer-Songwriter” type of music in “There’s A Place For You” and “O.G. Blues”.
Of course it wouldn’t be an Eleven Hundred Springs album without the traditional country sounds the band cut its teeth on. “Some Things Don’t Go Together” and “I’ll Get On To Getting Over You Tomorrow” are some of the best Swing and Honky Tonk Texas has to offer. While the influences and sounds cover a wide range, two elements run throughout This Crazy Life; solid song-writing and great performance.
In the tradition of Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys all of these accomplished musicians’ talents are featured.
