Houston Marchman is as Texas country as they come. That means he's lived it and he's got the poetry and the musicianship to tell it in a song -- a song that takes you with him to the heart of his experience. A lot of his growing up years were spent on his father's ranch in Meridian, Texas, and it was there that he soaked up the sounds, sights, and stories of ranch hands, small - town folk, rodeo riders, truckers, Mexicans, sweethearts, and broken hearts that come with the territory. By the time he was 16 his songs began to emerge, and he has been writing and singing ever since. One of his first professional gigs was performing in a wild west show -- as a bronc rider and singer. While touring Japan, Houston gathered enough material for road and rodeo songs to last a lifetime. Marchman followed up his rodeoing with 6 years in Nashville, writing and performing, and scraping by. The title song of his first CD, VietNashville, pretty much tells that story, like Steve Earle, Robert Earl Keen, Joe Ely, Lucinda Williams, and plenty of other talented singer - song writers, Marchman just doesn't fit into the Nashville country music mold. His sound is unapologetically "Texan." Now that he is back where he belongs, Marchman is performing all over north Texas backed by a hot group of players called the Contraband. The result is a hybrid sound that says something different in a world of formula, commercially driven music. This band delivers country music that packs the punch of rock, while it carries on the tradition of Texas Folk, conjunto, polka, and blues.

Houston is the best songwriter out there. The first live cd was the best ablum I have ever listened to.It is the kind of CD you never get tired of. His live shows are fantastic. If you ever get the chance to see him I would not pass it up.

Talented songwriter that is unjustly ignored by the Texas crowd. He deserves so much more. He is a much better songwriter than the much heralded Ray Wylie, Billy Joe and Joe Ely. Take a listen to this cd and you will see. It's dark and deep, but well worth it.

Its ok. I like the first track. But I was really disappointed with "Long Way From Here" I like "Ft. Worth" 100 times better. Clever lyrics saves this album. Of course I think he is one of best song writers out there. I am curious about the 6th album thing.... I thought I had them all... "Leaving Dallas" 'Trying for Home" "Live" "Desperate Man" And now this one... What is the other one?

Another vastly under appreciated singer/songwriter. He has the creative impulse that so many are lacking. Like Chris Wall I don't understand why this guy is not consitantly at the top. Oh wait, now I remember; it's because most people only hear 5-10 singers, and mistake pop for country.
