Kevin Galloway: “The Luckiest Creole In Terrebonne Parish”

By: Jack Anderson

Before the indie pop chirality of Lucius caught on our airwaves, and heck, even before KUTX was its own music station, there was only one “Lucius” to be reckoned with on Austin radio – Uncle Lucius. From the early-mid-oughts all the way through the late twenty teens, frontman Kevin Galloway and his keen grasp of blues-R&B-country rock helped make Uncle Lucius a household name here in the Live Music Capital. But within the same year that Uncle Lucius called it quits, Galloway pulled off a well-calculated creative transition; his solo debut The Change dropped in fall 2018, raking up acclaim and giving Galloway the confidence boost to keep ’em comin’.

Right around the same season that he introduced us to The Change, Kevin Galloway recently returned with his sophomore full-length, Secondhand Starlight. Considering that these easy-going performances were captured with the help Doug Strahan and the Good Neighbors alongside Kelley Mickwee and Jamie Lin Wilson, to say that the stars aligned on this record is an astronomical understatement. Following the release of Secondhand Starlight on June 24th, Galloway’s been gearing up for a regional tour followed by three-stop stint in the UK. So give Secondhand Starlight some streams while Kevin Galloway rounds out his travel log, something that already includes the Zydeco-influenced crawfish-broiler, “The Luckiest Creole In Terrebonne Parish”.

Daniel Fears: “Say Something”

Here at KUTX and Song of the Day, we try to be as dutiful as we can in providing both an accurate representation of the Austin Music Experience and great tunes. But honestly, all talent aside, for some local artists we often have to dig around to find something that’s actually airwave worthy. Daniel Fears, […]

Nihiloxica: “Asidi”

What happens when you aggressive UK bass collides with testosterone-driven Bugandan percussion? Nothing quiet, that’s for sure. That specific combo of acoustic and electronic, of modern and traditional first came about with the formation of Nihiloxica half a decade back, when UK producers Spooky-J and pq linked up with Nilotika Cultural Ensemble members Isa, Sally, […]
