"Band keeps building for the future"

It’s a long journey to go from playing cover songs in front of the band’s girlfriends to opening a concert for Earl Thomas Conley in front of 7,000 fans. But for members of 10 Mile Crossing, it has been an enjoyable trip. The band’s single “I Do” is currently getting airplay around Central Texas, including locally on KOXE. The band’s debut album, “10 Mile Crossing,” is scheduled for wide release in July.

The five members of 10 Mile Crossing, including Brownwood native Brad Windham and Early native David Gist, come from various backgrounds and came together as a band about three years ago.

“I had played since I was probably 16 years old. Jeff (Buchanan) and I met in college and played in a cover band for several years,” said Windham. “We were more pop rock, Matchbox 20 type stuff.” Windham said they played around Waco and Denton.

Gist said he had played in a few blues bands that performed around Brownwood and Abilene.

“I took classical piano for several years and I was a wedding singer too,” Gist said.

“A few years ago we all quit,” Windham said. “You put it down, you pick it up. But it gets in your blood. Then things changed. We started writing our own songs. We’d call up friends and let them listen to what we had.”

The two friends performed mostly acoustically for a couple years and gradually the band grew. Windham and Gist both play guitar and sing. Buchanan, who also sings and plays guitar, was the next to join the band. Justin Sherwood, drums, and Marty Sanders, bass, then entered the picture.

“We’ve been doing this about three years, but the first two years were really spent just forming,” Windham said.

The band practiced in Gist’s small garage.

“There was no air-conditioning, it was crammed and packed. We’d practice every weekend or every other weekend for a year — we drove our girlfriends, family and neighbors crazy.” - By Bill Crist — Brownwood Bulletin

This group of artist developed strong friendships over a period of several years while playing in different cover bands. Jeff Buchanan, Brad Windham and David Gist packed the clubs regularly in West Texas during the nineties, fine tuning their showmanship and writing abilities. While Justin Sherwood and Marty Sanders tightened up their rhythm section in front of thousands of service men and women overseas.

When the cover band life wasn’t fulfilling and the overseas journey came to an end, their lives crossed paths again. Through trial and error, sweat and tears, the band 10 Mile Crossing was formed.

In March of 2005, they went into the studio armed with 10 original songs that were written, polished and practiced in a 10X10 room in Brownwood, Texas. The finished product is the result of a year and a half in the studio and many sleepless nights.

The CD made its debut on January 1, 2007 and has been receiving generous airplay on numerous Texas stations as well as attracting the ear of notable Texas A&R lables.

The ink is still wet from the signing of a three year distribution deal with legendary Smith Music Group. Look and listen for 10 Mile Crossing's album due in stores this summer.
