West Texas rooted traveling band with multiple musical personalities ranging from rock to folk to country to punk.
If you were not doing music, you would be…
In the perfect music-less world, I would be a fighter pilot/intergalactic bounty hunter/professional dog petter, but in the real world without music, I would probably be finishing up a degree in English or history while working some dead end job in El Paso.
Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?
I enjoy cooking at home from time to time. Travis is the real cook in the band though. He can cook anything really well from the perfect filet mignon to the best egg and weenie burrito.
Pick ONE song one your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?
'Scraping the Bottom' almost didn't make it on then recording list. I was very reluctant to have it recorded, but after some convincing from the band and Frenchie, our producer, I agreed give it a shot. It's a song are about feeling pretty down and out and wondering where the carefree ease of youth went, and ultimately realizing you never can have that exact feeling back, but there are better things out there in the present and future, you just have to shut up and listen and look for them.
Finish this sentence: The Dirty River Boys is the artist that…
...wants you to get up out of your chair and move already!
