Tomball, Texas native Marcus Eldridge is one of the most unique talents in Texas Music: a guitar player's guitar player with a wild & free-flowing mixture of south-Texas twang, blues, ranchero sauce, beef ribs, and Houston July icehouse jukebox. He sings like an angel who loves every honky-tonk minute he lives. To his band mates in the Mystiqueros, he is the spark, known as "party in a box" and "crazy Uncle Mertis." And to more young Texas artists every night, he is a performer to look up to, be moved by and learn from. Eldridge's genuinely soulful voice & style were forged in the clubs and dancehalls of Texas, the songwriting trenches of Nashville, and the highways and back-alleys of the real musician's life. Now, with "Bring on the Night," its Marcus's turn to step out of the neon shadows and into the stage lights where he belongs. This is a country-soul record: immediately timeless, as real as Marcus's love of life and music of every soulful stripe. He wrote or co-wrote all but one song on "Bring on the Night," a collection of songs that celebrate the sweat-soaked juke-joint nights that this uniquely Texas spirit loves to live in. When not out entertaining the good folks of his homeland with solo shows or his own band, you can hear Marcus romance the fretboard and the microphone as one of the Mystiqueros, on their new release "Diamonds in the Sun" on Palo Duro Records. His guitar & voice grace two current Texas Music Chart singles, with more to come soon. "Bring on the night" indeed, Marcus. Bring on the night.

The thing I love about Marcus is watching him get after that crowd and not letting them go. It is refreshing to see someone not held back because of taking themselves to serious. This guy just picks that guitar and belts those tunes like nobody's business. You don't see many people who enjoy picking as much as Marcus. Keep it up.

Bought a couple extras as Christmas gifts. Great stuff. Found my new anthem: "Beer Drinkin' Girl"
