Old Soul, Badass

By: Laurie Gallardo

The influences that drive Je’Texas’ Dylan Bishop come from the old-school rock ‘n’ roll his dad introduced him to when he first started playing guitar. From that moment on, traditional blues proved to be the pivotal point. As KUTX Music Editor Jeff McCord observed about KUTX’s January 2023 Artist of the Month, the band’s only been around since 2020 but you’d never know it by their sound. Bishop and bandmates Damien Lanes (drums) and Gian Ortiz (bass) wield a mighty ‘60s psych jam band style that tends to blow the roof off of every live show they do.

“Our music is mostly rooted in that rhythm and blues stuff and we each bring some other ingredients into the mix of course,” Bishop explains. “Things definitely evolved over time.”

This month, Je’Texas begin a July residency at C-Boy’s Heart and Soul on South Congress. You can see them play tonight, Thursday July 6, and every Thursday this month, at 10 p.m. Texas psych/garage rockers The Point follow with their set at 11:30 p.m. This show rules.
