“Nick Gaitan & the Umbrella Man, guests from Houston who have S.A. experience. Bassist, singer and songwriter Gaitan and his Umbrella Man crew worked frequently at Saluté, where their Gulf Coast gumbo — a mix of roots rock, swamp pop, blues and Tex-Mex conjunto — went over well. It's a cinch it'll fly at Boneshakers.”
“Best Song About Houston Umbrella Man (Nick Gaitan), "I've Found My Weakness in You"”
“Rocks Off's bass-playing friend and neighbor Nick Gaitan talks about how our building inspired his song "I've Found My Weakness in You," and how his boss Billy Joe Shaver liked it so much he decided to record it.”
"He funnels those experiences into this effortless, grandly entertaining disc, which captures the heart and soul of Houston life via country, conjunto, rockabilly and more..... Listen closely -- your street might be mentioned in one of the terrific tunes."
“Nick Gaitan leads The Umbrella Man, whose self-titled debut is a walking-bass Gulf Coast tour of zydeco, conjunto, swamp pop, country-soul and even dub.”
