je'Texas— Are getting ready to announce the release of their debut album, due out 2022.
The songs were inspired by my daily experiences. The first batch were written while I was in a relationship and they seem to reflect the stages of that relationship. The love, excitement, sorrow joy, frustration, and all the other aspects of it, says Dylan Bishop lead singer and song writer of je'Texas. The latter batch was written after the relationship in solitude and the tunes seem to have a bit more introspection and imagination as a result of that. I hope that by communicating my own experience,it might help someone find perspective on their own experience. Maybe even inspire them to do something similar. Hopefully je'Texas' sincerity translates to the listeners and moves them in some way
je'Texas debut Album will soon be available for preorder
Drummer Damien Llanes and bassist Gian Ortiz made their respective journeys to Texas as young men before settling in Austin. Judging by their exquisite skill, they were keeping busy. Damien’s drums manage an often orchestral level of flourish and intrigue while always honoring the absolute and certain foundation required of rock-n-roll drumming. Gian, similarly, delivers the whole spectrum of bass from tastefully traditional blues-based lines to effervescently expansive melodies and chords as the song and set call for it. This is all done while they provide supporting vocals behind Dylan Bishop’s lead vocals and guitar. Dylan’s precocious talents span a breadth of rock-n-roll that makes one wonder if he found a crossroads of his own and made a deal.
Three special spirits have come together in the cocktail mixer of the Austin music world. Je’Texas on KUTX98.9Laurie Gallardo
