“Southeast Texas is both geographically and musically unique. The land around Beaumont and Port Arthur is oil-rich and that oil fuels a blue-collar, working-man economy. Southeast Texans aren’t afraid to put in a hard day’s work or to spend a long night unwinding once the work day is done. The confluence of blues, rock, and rural country music in Southeast Texas brought us Johnny & Edgar Winter and Janis Joplin. ZZ Top got their start here. Against this backdrop and channeling that Texas Roots & Blues Rock sound, is Dick LeMasters. His latest album, One Bird, Two Stones, hits all the right bases. These songs have a solid Texas vibe and can hold their own at the toughest bars in town. Riffs that stick in folks’ minds as they clock in for the graveyard shift down at the refinery. Blues to soothe sore muscles and hung-over minds. Rock for a wild night on the town and country for repentance the day after.”
