Album Notes
Success for this "True Americana" ensemble has been about embracing a supergroup ethos while shunning supergroup egos. At their best, the band represents not just what's right about the Austin TX music community but about live music as a whole. And they're only getting better.

When Phil Bass, Chris Beall, Phil Hurley, and Lonnie Trevino Jr, four established musicians, decide to join forces and play together just because it’s fun, you’re going to get something special. Such is the case for The South Austin Moonlighters, a band that blends blues, folk, soul, rock, and country, who can flip the switch from slow melodic country to gravelly rocking blues without a hitch. Think Little Feat meets Los Lobos with a splash of The Flying Burrito Bros, and you start to peel away the many musical layers of sound that makes up the S.A.M. Using a four part harmony at times accompanied with some brilliant guitar playing, S.A.M. plays with a full-bodied sound, and puts off an aura of down to earth Southern Blues and Country Rock, that can make even coldest days seem warm.

Detailed, polished, and powerful.
Detailed, polished, and powerful. The best translation from live stage to studio I’ve experienced in many years. These guys are gifted musicians all around. Their authentic selves and beautiful art come through in a bright and soul-warming way. Soak up the greatness that The South Austin Moonlighters have created with this unique work. Download and enjoy this!

These Guys Are Good!
We saw The South Austin Moonlighters live before we heard this CD, and they blew us away. All four guys write songs and all sing lead, so the band's sound is always varied and interesting. The songs are strong, and all vary in style as well -- you get a little folk, a little rock, a little country, a little blues... and a lot of talent and energy. As singers, they have wonderful range, and they blend harmonies very well. As musicians, they're about as solid as can be. Chris's and Phil's guitar styles complement each other nicely, and they take advantage of that by exchanging lead parts now and then. Like the others, Lonnie (bass) and Phil B (drums) have been around long enough to know how to provide a solid base for the various types of music the band plays.
Give this CD a listen -- you won't be disappointed. And if you're in/around Texas and get a chance to see The South Austin Moonlighters live, by all means, do it!
