ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"I learned how to play this music in the streets of New Orleans, on the highways of Texas, in the golden hills of Northern California, at the steps of Le Sacre Couer in Paris, in the high mountains of Morocco, and in a million little towns off country roads across America. I owe this music to the thousands of people who have taken me in to their homes and shared with me their bread. I am indebted to every person who ever gave me a dollar so that I could play this music another day. Your spirits run through me and it is only through you that I have found the strength to sing these songs. I hope you will listen to this record. It is the most honest achievement of my life so far."
- Charley Crockett on "A Stolen Jewel"

Bio:
Charley Crockett, a true descendant of Davy Crockett, was born in a poor town in deep south Texas. A border town, San Benito is also the birthplace of Tejano/Country music star Freddie Fender. Crockett's early years were spent between Texas and Louisiana, raised by a blues singing single mother in Dallas, and an uncle who introduced him to the big brass sound of the French Quarter in New Orleans where he would later learn how to play guitar as a street performer. In 2009, Crockett showed up in New York City, where he made a living captivating subway car audiences for several years before being discovered and offered a record deal as part of the street group "Trainrobbers." Deciding to take his chances in a rapidly changing music industry, Charley declined the offer and headed west to California instead. Of mixed Jewish/White/Creole dissent, he has a unique sound blending a rich and diverse heritage of both new and traditional music. Crockett has been compared to many artists from Bill Withers and Jerry Lee Lewis to Dr. John and Citizen Cope. Elusive, rebellious and self taught, Crockett is a true street made original from earlier times.
