"Richard and the Pallbearers"

Richard & The Pallbearers - A Puncher’s Chance EP
Een nieuwe ep van Richard & The Pallbearers. Vorig jaar bespraken wij hier bij Hanx zijn verdienstelijke en bij vlagen zelfs heel mooie Chaste Machine. A Puncher’s Chance EP werd voor het grootste gedeelte geproduceerd door de voor mij onbekende Greg Ramirez. Prijsnummer is hier Love Letter To My Dearest. Een slepende gitaarriff trekt het liedje door rul zand terwijl de maan over de sporen schijnt. Wreckage From The Palace Of Song is aardig maar niet opzienbarend. Merciless Damsel is beter omdat het wordt opgeluisterd met fraai tegendraadse geluiden. Richard Paul Davis is gegroeid en hij lijkt zich te gaan ontpoppen als een hoogst origineel en eigenzinnig liedjesman. Weer een stap dichter bij Het Album van Allure. (Wim Boluijt) - (in Dutch)


Soon to be released self made Album "Black Friday".



We're the 508's. A poet, an outlaw and a healer... all songwriters plying our trade because this is what we love. Music=Life -The 508's
Richard Paul Davis - Richard comes from a family of musicians and is of Cherokee/Irish descent. His Grandfather, Harold Davis, played with The Southland Playboys and with Mel Tillis at the Grand Ol' Opry; while his Grandfather Richard was a preacher and worship leader for many years in Joplin, Mo. His influences include Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, Frank Black and David Bowie. He is mostly self taught on the guitar/vocally and has played from orchestra pits to Gospel revivals to good ol' honky tonks. He has two albums out under the name of "Richard and the Pallbearers". His album, Chaste Machine, received critical acclaim and radio play in five countries as well as three movie soundtracks to his credit. He now resides in the D/FW area.
Britton Audette Keene - Britton is a brilliant and renowned underground poet. His intellect biting, his orating skills and delivery are purely unrivaled. His voice beckons from the recesses of ones vacant places and both soothes and strikes his listeners like a death adder to an ankle. His poetry tells tales of deicide against cowardly facless gods to rememberance of things untold. He is the founder of "Walking Through Random Sundays" and has spawned many musical progeny since. His grandfather also played at the Grand Ol' Opry, and he sights Dax Riggs and Jeff Mangum as his favorite artists.
Zachary Scott Pohl - Zachary is an exceptionally talented singer/songwriter and multi instrumentalist. He has a degree in music and many years of choir direction to his credit. His songs are full of pure heart, intelligence and power, but they remain accessible to everyones ears and souls. He is interested in Mayan culture and is widely considered to be one of the finest lyricists/vocalists in Texas. He is also greatly inspired by Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, as well as John Prine and Ray Charles.
