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.

Wow! I got this cd last week and it hasn't come out of my player yet. I LOVE THESE SONGS! They are the kind you just naturally sing along to...every one of them...no 'skippers' on there at all. Of course, the lyrics are rich and the harmonies are beautiful. Gosh, thank you Walt and all the Mystiqueros for another winner. You guys are the best! Can't wait to see you live again in Dallas.

Diamonds in the Sun is so good. I have listened and listened and every time it plays a different song catches me as the best, Trains I've Missed......Don't miss this one.

I heard the CD at a friend's house (he wouldn't say how he got an advanced copy). WOW, this is the best Walt has done in a while, and should be his biggest seller. Great lyrics, smooth harmonies, and the band sounds like they are having fun. Marcus and Johnny are incredible guitarists, and the variety of voices reminds me of the early EAGLES music.
