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”.

Honey Hideouts: “Goodbyes”

By nature, the id of a creative is often occupied by abstract fragments, waiting to be manifested. But sometimes the spark to bring something new to fruition only arrives with a change of scenery. And a recent case of such comes courtesy of Denmark’s Markus Artved. An accomplished producer who’s lent his ear to Lukas […]

Gary Devlin: “Waves”

We’ll never deny the merits of lyrical therapy. Then again, the staying power and worldwide accessibility of meditative genres like classical and jazz has little to do with curated words. And more often than not with that universality, comes positivity. Cut to El Paso-born, Arlington-based songwriter-guitarist Gary Devlin. Sure, Gary’s got the makings of a great […]

The Tibbs: “Ain’t It Funny”

We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again; the retro-soul renaissance of the last 10-15 years has been one of the most refreshing trends to break into the mainstream. And it’s been especially intriguing to hear countries outside of the U.S. tackle that classic Motown/Stax sound with their own takes on those brassy, upbeat, […]

Cinnamontal: “P.R.P.P.P.”
