You’ve surely heard of Jimmie Dale Gilmore, legendary Austin musician, but have you heard of his son, Colin Gilmore? If you haven’t, now is the time to check him out. The talented singer/songwriter grew up in Lubbock with his dad, and was surrounded by influential musicians growing up, including Joe Ely and Terry Allen. Just like his pops, Colin’s voice exudes a West Texas croon, and his music is an eclectic mix of folk, rock, Americana, country, and a little bit of punk rock. He’s been releasing albums for a few years, and his most recent album, “The Wild and Hollow,” was just released.
Gilmore stopped by our studios on Friday, August 9th for a live performance right here at KUTX! Be sure to tune in. You can also catch him at his CD release party at Strange Brew, the ever-popular coffee shop/music venue, on Friday evening.
