ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
And this is how it all started...as a boy, one cold winter day in north
Texas, the wind cut across the barren flat cotton fields like a knife. Not a
lot to do on days like that, but that's the day he found it: an old record
album of his Dad’s, Hank Williams and the Drifting Cowboys. That name
alone sounded like a story, like a song to him. So he studied every word,
the one and only photograph, the simple, matter-of-fact lyrics, the beautiful
melodies, and the ‘voice’. He believed every word old Hank sang. The
fun, up-tempo songs made him smile and the sad ones made him wonder
how such heartache could be made to be so beautiful.
As his love of song grew, new discoveries were made: genres like country,
folk, rock 'n’ roll, jazz, and all kinds of artists. He couldn't get enough!
Treasures were abundant as each new song was like a precious gem.
Being influenced not necessarily by the artist, but by the song itself,
young SW began plotting his own path.
SW started playing his hand the way these men who'd come before him
had done. He taught himself to play the guitar, and he began travelling
this country in search of life and his own experience. He was living what
Hank, Woody, Cisco, and many others had done before him. He was doing
what he believed was an initiation of being the songwriter of his music, as
these became his stories he was writing, singing and playing. From hitchhiking
across the country with just his guitar and little or no money to
near fatal rail car explosions, experiencing love and the pleasure of a
beautiful family, SW has lived a very interesting and colorful life that just
adds to the song.
This naturally talented singer/songwriter has plenty of stories and songs
left to tell. He is known not only as a musician, but also as a goodhearted,
kind and gentle man, one of the nicest guys you'd ever want to
meet, never wanting more than the friendship he's offered and the smiles
he gotten in return. You can hear it in his music.
If you've taken the time to read this, then take the time to listen
to S W La Follett. As SW would tell you, ''It's a gift!'' Bet you'll
like it.
