J.Tex & The Volunteers – Old Ways vs New Days
See the brand new video from the song “Ship Coming In” from the album
The final result is ten finely crafted songs, recorded together with guest musician Bebe Risenfors (who played with Tom Waits), and of course the Volunteers, Tue Lund Christensen on bass and Jason Bedard on drums.
J.Tex was born in Detroit and raised in Denmark, he feels quite at home in both in the United States, where he has many musical collaborators, and in Copenhagen, where he lives today.
He is very much part of the Southern Swedish rock’n’roll scene, where a love of music, vintage American cars, old motorcycles, vintage clothing and the shine of well greased hair is very much a way of life.
The best of USA, Denmark and Sweden come together on this, the coolest album release this winter!
”Heptown has a truly impressive feel for roots and
rockabilly music and the know how to pick their band.
J.Tex & The Volunteers is another great Heptown act.”
– Buster Fayte
”At times it’s like Seasick Steve meets Cab Calloway, others it’s more Tom Waits meets
Maurice Chevalier. It’s certainly different, but most importantly, it’s wonderful.”

VIDEO “This Old Banjo” (the first single from the album, released Nov. 2014)
The americana group MINERS OUTFIT release the first single runner for the upcoming Barriers Ep, due in June 2014.
Inside of You will be followed by a video to visually express the depth and thoughts behind this new effort. A more avant-garde expression and a wide combination of traditional folk music mixed with pop, rock, home-made crunch and catchy choruses.
Americana covers such a huge ground of elements in music and Inside Of You is filed under that genre description.
