A lot of people claim to be true Texas troubadours, but when you’re literally descended from Davy Crockett, the competition starts to dwindle. Enter Dallas transplant Charley Crockett, whose heritage and personal drive have made him a master interpreter of traditional music. Lineage aside Crockett’s a beast onstage and in the studio, with five full-lengths notched in his belt, including hist late 2018 album, Lil G.L.’s Blue Bonanza.
Lil G.L. features fifteen cover songs from the likes of T-Bone Walker, Jimmy Reed, Austin’s Lavelle White and much more, providing for a blues, soul and country experience equally rooted in the past and present. The Blue Bonanza starts right now with some sultry self-promotion via “Good Time Charley’s Got The Blues”!
