The Texas Gentlemen have signed to New West Records and will release debut album TX Jelly on 15th September 2017.
The band recorded the 11-song album in four days at the legendary FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. It was produced by band leader and organist Beau Bedford.
TX Jelly spans blues, soul, folk, country, rock, and gospel and the final track list was whittled down from 28 songs recorded for the project. The album will be available digitally, on compact disc and vinyl LP, and is available for pre-order now via PledgeMusic.
Of TX Jelly, Bedford said, “We set up our own version of Rock ‘n’ Roll Summer camp and invited our friends down to FAME studios. We figured at worst, we would have a great time as friends hanging out in one of the most historic studios in America. There was so much mojo once we turned all of the gear on – sounds just started popping out of the speakers, and the songwriters couldn’t help but feed off the energy. TX Jelly is the fruition of years of kinship and a deep hunger by our collective group for American roots music.”
This September The Texas Gentlemen will appear at Americanafest, Pilgrimage Music Festival along with Justin Timberlake, Eddie Vedder, Ryan Adams and more.
The Texas Gentlemen are Beau Bedford, Nik Lee, Daniel Creamer, Matt McDonald, and Ryan Ake.
