Americana / Folk / Singer/Songwriter
"When I ran into Keith Rea at the Mucky Duck on a recent trip to Houston, I was
immediately intrigued with his new CD just from the title, “North Bound Train”.
As I have a song called “South Bound Train” I was interested on his
take on the rails going in the opposite direction. I recently have shared the dreamy
“Paradise Shoes” with my listeners.
Other highlights, for me, include the title track, “North Bound Train”,
the jazzy “Honeysuckle Wine” the Celtic flavored “Dunkeld”
and “Don’t Blame Me”. The album is solid throughout.
The CD was recorded with care at Jack Saunders’ White Cat Studio, THE place
to go in Houston to capture folk and Americana songs. First rate backup includes
Ken Gaines, Matt Harlan, Lloyd Maines, Leslie Krafka, Connie Mims, TC Smythe and
So take a ride on the “North Bound Train”. You’ll stop at some

country vibe and West Coast singer-songwriter fare, it's probably best to file him
directly in the `Texas Troubadour' box and leave it at that. Of course, that puts
him in the company of songwriting greats such as Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark and
Eric Taylor, so I'm sure he won't mind.
