“Once upon a time I played a guitar in my bedroom. Now I play in the living room, too.”
In our continued celebrations of Love Austin Music Month, the AMM points a glaring spotlight at ATX-based songwriter/vocalist/guitarist Aaron Winston‘s pop-powered anti-folk project Russel Taine Jr. Not a person, but a band, though it did start as a solo endeavor. Now bringing along bassist Justin Winslow, drummer Wes Armstrong and lead guitarist/vocalist Dylan Hill for the journey, Winston amps up the vibe with a full-length debut, Tales, including previously released singles “Something You Said,” “Hurricane,” “Blue Jean Baby” and “Year and a Moon,” along with today’s AMM featured track “You Like.”
