About Joe Ely

Joe Ely was born between Route 66 and the Rock Island Line in Amarillo, Texas, and he saw Jerry Lee Lewis playing on a flatbed trailer in an Amarillo dust storm when he was six years old. Since then he’s had a career than can fairly be called mythic. His songs about the geographic and romantic landscapes of the Lone Star State are pure poetry, but there’s no other Texas songwriter on whom rock has left a stronger mark. Joe was a member of the original Flatlanders, a backup vocalist with the Clash, and a member of Los Super Seven. Joe has also shared the stage with Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones, the Clancy Brothers, and Uncle Tupelo. He is a true pioneer of “outlaw country,” Americana, and Texas music.

Joe is a recent recipient of the Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award. In the words of Texas music writer Joe Nick Patoski, Joe Ely was born “to roam the earth and preach the gospel of the Roadhouse, extolling the virtues of the nowhere-else-but-Texas pressure cooker environment where hard-core country and the rawest kind of rock and roll collide on the dancefloor every Saturday night.”

• “Hard Livin”

• “All That You Need,” in concert with Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt

What Other People Have Been Saying...

“Texan troubadour…Ely still sings with agility and swagger” -Guardian

“What I love about Joe is that even if he’s just sitting on the couch running through something he’s working on, he does it like his hair is on fire.” -Terry Allen, country singer/artist

 

About Lucette

At once beautiful and haunting, the chilling power of Lucette’s gentle voice is unwavering and undeniable.  Using just the texture of her voice, Lucette paints landscapes: starlit skies above a vast, cold desert; a deep river snaking lazily through the Deep South; and a dark thunderstorm rolling over an infinite prairie are just some of the images that her singing conjures up.

Although young, it is obvious to all those who listen to her that Lucette is an old and doggedly romantic soul. Full of emotion, her performances take audiences back to the days when artists such as Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, and Loretta Lynn dominated the airwaves.

Her single “Bobby Reid” was recorded in just one take, capturing the raw and melancholy fluctuations of her effortless and mysterious sound.

Her single “Bobby Reid” was captured in just one take, capturing the raw and melancholy fluctuations of her effortless and mysterious sound. Working with acclaimed producer Dave Cobb (Secret Sisters, Jamey Johnson, Waylon Jennings) Lucette wrote and recorded her self-titled album —with an expected release date of spring 2013—in under a month. ”Creating music just comes naturally to me,” she says, when asked to reflect on the experience. “There’s not a day that I don’t feel like sitting down at the piano and writing”.

In January 2012, Lucette joined The Secret Sisters on a tour of the UK, playing venues such as London’s Union Chapel. “She has a sultry, laid back way of singing that draws you into the song even more, well worth a listen.” -Milky Tea Kid, on the Union Chapel show.
