"Bent Lovehandles put out a whole lot of music and a new CD from their ‘Tiny Texas Town’"

“It should take you on a musical trip,” says keyboardist William Rich about the new album he and songwriter-guitarist Brent Lovelady have finally made. “And it should be fun.” It does and it is ...

These guys play a wide range of music, are very talented, and clearly enjoy what they’re doing. … Their first CD, “Sacred Order of the Broken Hearts,” released at the end of last month, ... is good music for driving around West Texas, alright.

And just as their live performances sample a fairly wide array of music, so does the album. Yet for Sacred Order, the duo focused entirely on original songs by Lovelady.

“Your New Tattoo” is an instant classic, and funny. Reminds me a bit of a Randy Newman. … “After a Fall,” the CD’s first track, is a clever country song that drew me in and keeps playing in my head; “Tiny Texas Town” was described by one listener as “Big Bend meets Big Mamou,” for its Cajun sound; “Pray for Me” is a slow, haunting ballad of a contemporary soldier; and “Wilbur’s Secret Life” is a ragtime number showcasing Rich’s nimbleness on the piano.

BRENT LOVELADY -- Songwriter

All I’ve really ever wanted to do was write good songs, hang with a kind woman, and live where I was hard to find. It’s simple stuff like that for me. I can’t remember a time in my life when I haven’t written. Words, melodies and rhythms are magic to me. I don’t know if the world needs another songwriter but I know I need to write songs.

I grew up in Weatherford Texas, spent some time in the oilfields of Oklahoma, ruined a couple of good women along the way, ended up meeting the love of my life in Cairo, Egypt, and was a staff writer for a small publishing company on Music Row in Nashville Tennessee.

I learned a lot in Nashville. With the exception of Diane Warren I believe the best songwriters in the world live in Nashville but alas I didn’t like the pace or the noise. I’m off the grid now, tucked away in the desert near Terlingua, Texas where sitting on the porch and playing guitar are the norm. Sometimes less is more.
