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.

Walt is the most passionate singer that i have seen in awhile. I had the pleasure of meeting him at Albert ice house and he is as awesome of a person as he is a preformer. You have got to see him you if you enyjoy real soul and passion in your music.

If only there was a sixth star to rate "Hopewell." I originally bought this album for "Rambler," but the more I listened the more I realized the entire CD was a masterpiece. "Angels Share," is an excellent ballad that really makes you feel like slow sippin' some Beam. My favorite would be "Somedays a Dollar, Somedays a Dime," another excellent tune from Walt.

I saw Walt a few months back in Austin. There was a guy there who told me Walt looked like Jesus. I couldn't help but tell folks after that, that Walt "writes like Jesus". I don't mean to offend anyone, but listening to these last two albums have been like reading the Bible at times. Thanks Walt

Thanks Walt for making me believe the balladeer is still alive. These lyrics and harmonies pierce to the marrow even to the darkest soul. If you like Texas flavored music, buy this NOW !!

This is an EXCEPTIONAL CD, easily the best CD since Hayes Carll's Little Rock. Real country music from a real singer-songwriter. Folks, if you don't like this CD then you're just f'ing dead.
