Description

“A lot of people tell me they don’t like country music, but they like what I am doing,” says Junior Brown. “I hear that line more than anything else,” which is ironic because a couple of licks is all it takes to erase any doubts concerning Junior’s stylistic allegiance. His music combines the soul of country and the spirit of rock n’ roll.

In Junior’s case, playing everywhere from the Grand Ole Opry to rock showcases on the West Cosat and his hometown of Austin, Texas, * crossover * is not synonymous with water-down or light-weight. He says of his ever-growing legion of converts, “Just about the time they label me as some old time honkytonk singer, I throw something new in there that surprises them. And then they’ll appreciate the traditional styles of country music too. Do something to wow them without ruining the roots of country and they end up accepting the music that they would have been prejudiced against.”

Robert Earl Keen makes no secret that he is groping for answers to difficult philosophical questions. He has found followers and lost disciples along the way. Under the worst circumstances, and he is adept at finding them, he exposes a tender place in his heart that his fans hope to find. At this juncture in Keen’s long career he is emerging, phoenix like, out of the ashes of “thought you killed me that time” with the best material of his career.

Farm Fresh Onions was recorded in Austin at the Hit Shack and contains eleven original Robert Earl Keen songs. There is plenty to attract new listeners and satisfy tastes of fans who have been asking “when is the next one?”
