Walt Wilkins & The Mystiqueros, the legendary Texas songwriter and his new group of exceptionally talented musicians, will release their debut album, DIAMONDS IN THE SUN. The CD was produced by Lloyd Maines, with Americana gems like “Trains I Missed,” which is already creating a buzz, “The Shape I’m In” and “Stand Up Seven.” The album includes six tracks by Wilkins, two by band members, and three covers by the likes of The Band, Davis Raines, Ray Stephenson & Bob Dipiero. Live performances are already drawing comparisons to The Eagles, but the band also reflects influences such as Poco, The Lost Gonzo Band, and Crosby, Stills & Nash. Joining Wilkins on acoustic guitar are Bill Small on bass, percussion and acoustic guitar; John M. Greenberg and Marcus Eldridge on electric guitars; and Ramon Rodriguez on drums and percussion. All five are singers, four are songwriters and each has made his own records. Maines also contributed turns on steel guitar, baritone guitar, acoustic high-string guitar and mandolin. Wilkins, a gifted songwriter, has earned comparisons to Guy Clark and Kris Kristofferson. His credits include “Songs About Texas,” the single that launched Pat Green’s career, Ricky Skaggs’ “Seven Hillsides” from the GRAMMY Award-winning SOLDIER OF THE CROSS and Ty Herndon’s “Big Hopes,” which was the title track for that record. Most recently, GRAMMY Award-winning artist Pam Tillis recorded on her new CD his “Someone, Somewhere Tonight” from MUSTANG ISLAND.

What happens when America's greatest living songwriter/wordsmith lays down tracks with 4 immensely talented musician/songwriters? Yep....Walt's CD with the Mystiqueros "Diamonds in the Sun". Lost track of how many copies of this CD I've purchased for other people as gifts. The last time I did that was....never.

I have been a big Walt Wilkins fan for a long time. He is one of the best song writers around. He has now takin it to a new level with the Mystiqueros. These guys were meant to play together. Even if they just played and hummed together with no words I'd still pay to see them. They are that good. But they don't just play and hum, instead they sing amazing well written words. I like the Mysiqueros so much that we hired them to play at our wedding last Nov. I couldn't think of anything better than dancing our first dance to Poetry. By the end of the reception anyone that hadn't heard them before was trying to find out how to get a cd.
