Who is Mike Graham? Singer, songwriter, and West Texas survivor...Mike Graham. He stands alone in the crowd of Texas singer/songwriters flooding the market these days, with a style so noticeably shaped by the energy buried in the dry, parched oil fields of West Texas. Born in Pecos, raised in and around Midland, Big Spring, and Odessa, Texas and attending Angelo State University in San Angelo for a couple of years, it's not surprising that his debut CD (1999) is titled "Just West of Nowhere". Although his musical influences include Steve Earle, Johnny Cash, Robert Earl Keen, and Townes Van Zandt, as you might expect, Guy Clark, Joe Ely, and Butch Hancock (all from West Texas) are on the list as well. Mike released a new collection of songs titled "Find You a Highway" in April 2001 on Boatfolk Records and is receiving heavy airplay on radio across the state. This Larry Joe Taylor production follows up on the West Texas theme of "Just West of Nowhere" with songs like "67", and "Half of Lubbock" while also exploring new directionin "Be Alright", "Sacking a Small Town", and "Riding on the Rails". Mike is currently appearing across the state with his band as well as in solo or "songwriter" shows. He has appeared with Chris Wall, Larry Joe Taylor, Davin James, Steven Fromholz, Terri Hendrix, Lloyd Maines, Tommy Alverson, Cory Morrow, Ed Burleson, and many others.

Pretty good musician / songwriter. I really like his style but it is impossible to find a cd other than Bad Ideas. Get them back on the market already.

Mike Graham is a total badass, he played a live show at Camp Stewart for all of camp as a favor to a good friend of his, Thomas Cochran. That night goes down in history as one of my fondest memories at camp. He is an awesome singer/songwriter and is just as incredible live as he is on recording.

I saw Mike at Zapato's in College Station. It wasn't that great. The band before him blew him out of the water. Sorry!

Thanks to all the previous good reviews on this artist on this board, i took a chance on buying this cd, and i'm glad i did,as it's a great listen. Tracks 4 River of Tears and 9 Friday Night are worth the price of the album alone. Shall certainly be checking out his earlier albums

Finally a band that is doing something different in this scene. These guys are not a copy cat band. They have their own distinct sound and can really rock the place with great songwriting and a really tight band. Also, I'd like to know what bands James does like.
