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 Marchman is one of the best singer/songwriters of his generation. His music is as honest as it gets. It means a lot to hear someone sing something they actually wrote, it adds something. I can relate to Houston's songs in a way that I have never been able to relate to any other musician before.

Houston Marchman has cut what may well be remembered as the best damn independant C.D. released by a Texas artist this year! From the album opener Wichita Falls this C.D. is a soulful, story telling delight. Houston has shown himself to be a true master of painting full, rich, glorious picture's with his music. Every song is a fully realized masterpiece of sound. Buy this Disc and you will get the full tour of Texas Honky Tonk Killin', Lovin', Leavin', Drinkin', Fightin', Missin', and Movin' on!!!! And I'm still leavin out the hidden Adair's Honky Tonk Christams Party! A Texas Music Mastepiece!!! No Bull. You will be sorry when you're best friend gets it first. At least I was.

Houston Marchman is a fantastic songwriter/singer. He deserves any and every ounce of praise he gets. He deserves a lot more praise also. His voice makes me think of Bruce Springsteen growing up in the southwest and being a cowboy. He's gritty and raw. His words melt together some well and the feelings he makes you feel are unreal. Truly a Texas treasure. I suggest that everyone gives this man a listen.
