Tommy Mack & The Lifters

THE LIFTERS started out in 2001 and have since released three CD's, two on Austin label Killingbird and the latest CD "Rolas Para Gringos" on TOMMYPLANET RECORDS under TOMMY MACK & THE LIFTERS . They released their second CD "Texas Trash" in 2005 to positive reviews in the USA and abroad with the single "She's A Devil" going into heavy rotation in Brazil, Argentina and the UK prompting plans for a future tours. Included on the new CD are two country standards 'Make Believe' by Conway Twitty and "Mama Tried' by Merle Haggard. Both songs have a refreshing rock edge that is synonymous with the bands 'Big Texas Sound'.

In 2011 they released their third CD "ROLAS PARA GRINGOS " on the newly formed TOMMYPLANET label in September 2011. Having adopted the new moniker "TOMMY MACK & THE LIFTERS" due to the constant rotation of band members that has led to speculation that the sound had shifted away from the original format showcased on the first two CD's "Engine Music" and "Texas Trash". "Nothing could be further from the truth" says Tommy Mack " We finally have a CD that was recorded all in one studio with one engineer and produced by our ears exclusively. The songs are a mix of old un recorded material and new stuff I wrote just for this project, and believe me, it's all LIFTERS all the way. The name change might take a while to stick and cause some confusion but, it was a chance I had to take to let people know I was in this for the long haul no matter who else was in the band at any given time."
