Biography

Texas Slim could very well be a reincarnate of a passed soulful singer who plays guitar and is once again carving out a niche in blues music history.

Born and raised in Dallas, TX.... Slim from an early age met and played with the great Alex Moore, (who first recorded the blues in 1929) and later Little Joe Blue.

In March of 2002 Slim released his second solo effort "I Have Arrived" which includes the production and performance talents of Aaron Comess (Spin Doctors/Joan Osborne and others). In addition to his own records, Slim has recorded and toured with Cold Blue Steel, Randy McAllister, FOAMY (New Bohemians) and has graced the stages of the House of Blues as well as one of the first artists to ever play a Hard Rock Cafe.

The year 2006 is quickly becoming the band's best year yet starting if off by recording National TV Commercials and Radio spots for Famous Dave's BBQ Restaurant's which is airing in 30 states across the country. The video was directed by Danny Clinch who's photography talents have been seen in Rolling Stone, GQ, Vanity Fair among others. Danny also just finished a DVD for Bruce Springsteen which won a grammy award.

Other accomplishments in 2006 include headlining the Edmond Jazz & Blues Festival, opening for Johnny Winter, Savoy Brown and Blue Oyster Cult and touring the country.
