Joe Ely's covered a lot of ground in his time, with 33 recorded releases over the past 30+ years. When it comes to the mystical process of writing, singing, and performing music, there's no pretending or holding back. From Lubbock’s Flatlanders, (Butch Hancock & Jimmie Dale Gilmore) to the Joe Ely Band, their mixing of country and rock elements into something new and completely different, to his incendiary solo acoustic sets, he remains a true Texas original. He has had a genre-crossing career, performing with Bruce Springsteen, Uncle Tupelo, Los Super Seven, The Chieftains and James McMurtry, in addition to his early work with The Clash and more recent acoustic tours with Lyle Lovett, John Hiatt, and Guy Clark. The songs that Joe Ely sings are the stuff that makes anyone's
journey something worth remembering. Come see this wandering minstrel, gypsy cowboy while you can, this one is sure to sell out!
---------Mark Wayne Glasmire - gentle country ballads, interspersed with mid-tempo odes, but each song carries its own original message.
