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.

It does not get any better than this. While Houston's studio albums are outstanding, his new "Live!" cd captures Houston and the Contraband at its best. LIVE. You have got to hear this CD. Adios Baby live is 10x better than the studio cut. Buy and listen. You will enjoy every minute of it.

I first heard Houston on KNON playing "Bill Longley". I've been a fan ever since. He shoots straight from the hip, no BS. Hs newest cd "Live" is one of his best efforts. He's one of Texas's best singer/songwriters. Copy a song! I don't think so.

Howdy! I'd just like to say that I really enjoy Houston Marchman's music, But isn't it funny how much Viet Nashville sounds like Elmo Lincoln by Jack Ingram. Someone isn't being very original.??

What a great show at the White El. The Contraband is kick ass. Houston's words are nothing but real and his songs are the greatest. Can't wait to see him again.

Houston Marchman is what country music is all about. Great lyrics and great sounds all come together to tell fascinating stories of how life really is. The fact that Houston writes his own songs only adds to the mystique of his music, and he is such a genuine person as well. Rarely does a day go by that my buddies and I don't have one of Houston's cd's cranking out of a stereo here in Murfreesboro, TN. Keep singing that great Texas music!

I've seen Houston opening for Pat Green and on his own in little ice house (The firehouse) in Houston. Both shows were exceptional. His music and especially his lyrics tell many wonderful stories. His songs fit right into the Texas ranch life style. He is personable with the audience and was a big help in Houston when my Son's Tennessee license wasn't good enough for the bar we were in. Thanks Houston! Great Show. Great Music
