Bio

The Jalapeño Compadres have become a real band in the summer of 2008. Starting out with Baeda & Alex in 1996, it took some time to pave the way for Americana music on our home turf. Now, the folks seem to be ready for it. With Christian & Robert the Jalapeño Compadres won some of the most proficient local musicians and extra nice guys around. We're right into firin' up Texas-style Americana in our region!

Where it all began:
Back in the early 80s I heard Waylon & Willie sing “Back To The Basics of Love, Let's Go To Luckenbach, Texas”. “Well”, I thought to myself, “if this place is anywhere near to what the song is all about, Luckenbach must be my center of the world”. It didn't take long till I headed out for my first-time-ever trip to Texas and the Hill Country - must've been in the late 80s. As soon as I got there I knew them outlaws were right about what they sang. The Hill Country to me turned out to be a whole other country than I had expected – a wonderful stretch of smooth rollin' hills where Folk, Country, R & B, Blues, Rock, Conjunto etc. blended into a unique musical atmosphere inspiring to anyone who has ever strummed a six-string. I caught fire immediately, became a fan of the FAN, Texas Rebel Radio, and Americana music. J. D. Gilmore, J. Ely, R. E. Keen, G. P. Nunn, Texas Tornados - thank you guys, I owe you many a good time. A songwriter myself, I kinda grew into that Texas and Americana musical spirit. I kept writing songs by the dozen, but needed someone to give 'em that Texas kickin' edge. Then along came Alex, a string wizard with his musical roots deeply planted in Ireland. Though playing a whole other music before (Rory Gallagher – the Irish Blues legend; Jethro Tull …), it didn't take more than a few shots of ol' Irish whisky to talk him into that Texas thang: Born were the Jalapeño Compadres!
