Cory Morrow w/ Folk Family Revival
November 9, 2012 @ 9:00 pm - 2:00 am
It is fitting that a south of the border gamble nearly two decades ago would ultimately yield an acclaimed Texas troubadour. Cory Morrow’s humble artistic beginnings read like the gritty lyric of an unwritten Townes Van Zandt song. This straight-shooting musician, who drops his ninth solo release Vagrants And Kings on May 20th through Sustain Records, a branch of Universal Music, started strumming at the age of 15. One lucky coin toss later, the six string gained a new owner. Morrow enlisted in music lessons during his high school years, and soon he was banging out songs by Led Zeppelin and ZZ Top. When Morrow moved on to college at Texas Tech University, friends introduced him to the rootsy, honky-tonk fare of fellow Texans Robert Earl Keen and Ray Wylie Hubbard.
FOLK FAMILY REVIVAL
Folk Family Revival, comprised of the Lankford brothers – Mason, Barrett and Lincoln – and Caleb Pace, has been described as Americana, folk and country, but their unique sound has influences spanning rock and bluegrass as well. As the primary songwriter, Mason fronts the band with vocals and guitar, Barrett plays bass, Caleb is found on electric guitar, mandolin and lap steel, and Lincoln backs the band up on drums and percussion. Childhood friends (and brothers), the foursome has already been featured on Fox26 and live radio and has opened for artists like Willie Nelson, Hayes Carll, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Cody Canada & the Departed, Robert Ellis, and Bob Schneider. In their not-so spare time, the boys enjoy practicing new music in their shed, working on cars and reinforcing the bond that makes them such a moving and awe-inspiring act – despite their young age. Unfolding, which debuted July 12, 2011, was produced and mixed by Jeffery Armstreet at Red Tree Recording Studio in Magnolia, Texas – where the band currently resides. The album was mastered by Grammy winning engineer Gavin Lurssen.
