The Damn Quails, described as a young band with old souls, are a combined effort between singer/songwriters Gabriel Marshall and Bryon White, proud saplings of Oklahoma’s opulent music vegetation. Having been exposed to local storytellers like Tom Skinner, Mike McClure and Gene Collier, both Bryon and Gabe sank their roots into songwriting early on and remained close to that art while earning their music chops on stage indulging in music styles that ran the spectrum.
Backed by the ‘Quail Philharmonic,” the live show spills off the stage with a pooled sound that makes veteran performers stand up and take notice, and on any given night the philharmonic fills to include some of their peers from other bands. After all, the jam is what it is really all about and Bryon admits that they have never performed a song the same way twice. The rich sounds of soul, blues, country, folk, and a little bit of rock are all accounted for in a cohesive mixture that digests smoothly, like a dose of high quality opiates hitting the bloodstream.
Born in East Texas then transplanted & raised in a tiny South Texas town, Chris King is an honest songwriter who places the subjects of his songs in the middle of heartbreak, moonlight, alcohol, Cadillacs, hope, dance halls, & thunderstorms… all with as much gallop or yawn as he can muster. With a new voice in Texas music, Chris King’s first full-length record, “1983″, was released January 15, 2013.
Joe Teichman is a singer-songwriter based out of College Station, TX, a very pivotal view for the up and coming music scene in the state. Joe has been playing for the past four years and is nowhere near through. He has had many full band shows around College Station with the “Cool Arrows” but also many acoustic shows consisting of himself and mandolin player, John Terry, traveling the state to cities and towns such as, Dallas, Plano, Dripping Springs, Johnson City, Breckenridge, Austin, Georgetown and even Lampasas, TX. Dates are being added so come catch a show and let’s have a good time!
