Texas Slim

texas-slim
Texas Slim could very well be a reincarnate of a passed soulful singer who plays guitar and is once again carving out a niche in blues music history. Born and raised in Dallas, TX…. Slim from an early age met and played with the great Alex Moore, (who first recorded the blues
in 1929) and later Little Joe Blue. In March of 2002 Slim released his second solo effort “I Have Arrived” which includes the production and performance talents of Aaron Comess (Spin Doctors/Joan Osborne and others). In addition to his own records, Slim has recorded and toured with Cold Blue Steel, Randy McAllister, FOAMY (New Bohemians) and has graced the stages of the House of Blues as well as one of the first artists to ever play a Hard Rock Cafe. Also in late 2001 became the birth of the Love Machine. Joey Love and Bill Cornish have known each other for several years. Bill had been an occasional sound engineer for the Blues Xpress and when Joey needed a bass player he called upon Bill who had recently been on tour with Jimmy Morgan and Texas Slim backing up Randy McAllister. After a year and a half of performing with Bill in the

Blues Xpress, Joey sensed he needed a new direction which came one night in the back of a club in Dallas, TX. There was Texas Slim and Joey Love talking about wanting to form a band with another guitarist and as they say ‘the rest is history’. This truly has been a musical match made in heaven, neither Slim or Joey try to outdo the other but, actually compliment each which exudes in the music that transcends from the stages they perform. The year 2006 is quickly becoming the band’s best year yet starting if off by recording a National TV Commercial and Radio spots for Famous Dave’s BBQ Restaurant’s which will be shown in markets across the country. The video was directed by Danny Clinch who’s photography talents have been
seen in Rolling Stone, GQ, Vanity Fair among others. Danny also directed a DVD for Bruce Springsteen which recently won a Grammy! The band recently took part in the 2006 IBC Competition in Memphis and drew a great deal of attention to them increasing their fan base and recently opened for the likes of Johnny Winter, Blue Oyster Cult, and Savoy Brown. Texas Slim third CD just come out in May 2009 for European label Blues Boulevard.
Two new CDs produced by Feelin’ Good Records in 2011, the first one recorded live “Cooking with Gas”, the second one recorded in studio, “Lucky Mojo” turned the spotlight of the world media on him. Excellent reviews of both CDs, with some interviews like the one published on Blues Matters, together with a wide crowd of followers, proclaim Texas Slim as a musician of great talent of the new generation. Do not forget his participation in the “Blues Explosion Show” in 2009, next to E.C.Scott, R.J.Mischo and the legendary Sonny Rhodes, and in 2012, which saw him headliner on the stages of the best European festivals together with Vivian Vance Kelly and Brian Templeton.
In short, a force of nature, not only in Texas. Watch out !
