David Longoria is no stranger to the local scene, and he’s an outstanding presence outside of Austin, in terms of music. Your Austin Music Minute host got to know Longoria’s work through his band The Black, and through his playing with And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, and with songwriter and longtime AMM favorite Bill Baird. So, to say that Longoria’s solo work has been long-anticipated is something of an understatement.
Longoria presents his debut under the moniker Longriver with Of Seasons, released through Hullabaloo Records. Longoria has referred to it as the album of his dreams. Indeed, it’s a strong connection to an intimate, soul-searching, cosmic-American style, examining society’s ineptitude in dealing with pain within the human experience. Beautiful writing encapsulated by beautiful folk-rooted performances.
