Should’ve Been Cowboys
Should’ve Been Cowboys is a four-man Indie Rock band from College Station, TX. They formed a year ago and have performed throughout the Brazos County. Over the course of 2012, they performed thirty-eight shows. Front-man Clayton Tumlinson’s beautiful vocal melodies, Taylor Maddox’s attention-grabbing lead, Nathan Garcia’s dynamic drum style, and Brenton Kim’s solid foundation, compose Should’ve Been Cowboys. This fun and high-energy band will leave audiences floored for more.
Taylor Maddox comes from a family with absolutely no musical background or talent. He started playing guitar in 7th gradewhen his mother bought him an electric guitar for his birthday. In all honestly he started playing to catch the attention of a girl at church, but thanks to that, his dream of being a life-long musician was born. He met 2 of his best friends, Nathan and Clayton, at the same church in 2005 when we were all raw musicians. Barely knowing anything, Taylor climbed on stage and fell in love with it. Letting David Gilmore and Jimmy Page be his major influences as a young musician, he fell in love with multiple genres and allowed music to take over his world.
Clayton Tumlinson grew up playing music with his older brother, Bobby, who is 6 years older than him and played the piano. Clayton got his first acoustic guitar for Christmas from his aunt and uncle when he was 11 and they’ve been jamming together ever since. Right off the bat Clayton was writing songs and playing guitar without any prior knowledge how to do so. He played at the First Assembly of God in Marble Falls, Tx every Sunday with his brother and it was then that he realized he knew he wanted to be a musician. Since then he has put everything he has had into music. Leading with passion and ending with his own blood, sweat, and tears.
Nathan Garcia was surrounded by music from a young age. With a drummer and DJ for a father, music was always there. He learned to play the drums at a young age, performing in his first talent show at the age of 9. Ever since then, drumming, and music in general, have become his passion. At the age of 17 he started learning to play the guitar and his love for music grew exponentially ever since. After moving to College Station, Texas in 2010, he began forming relationships with other musicians he had met years before. This would eventually lead to the group Should’ve Been Cowboys being formed. Since then Nathan has been teaching guitar at a studio in College Station and hopes that through this he can share his love of music with a younger generation.
Brenton Kim began playing bass in Dallas, TX. Starting at the age fourteen, his musicality has developed throughout the years. Absorbing influences from multiple genres, Brenton approaches the bass with a peculiar and distinct feel.
Tall Talk is a 3-piece rock band from College Station.
Anna is a senior at Texas A&M and a new up-and-coming singer/songwriter in Bryan/College Station. She’s been playing guitar for about 10 years, and just started seriously writing and playing this past summer. Come listen and check out new talent this town has to provide!
