Featuring The Lawless
Entering the Texas Music Scene as a force to be reckoned with, The Lawless hit the stage in 2017 with their own brand of music self-described as “Shed Rock”, a sound reminiscent of southern rock on steroids. Hard hitting guitar riffs coupled with blistering, yet melodic lyrics, The Lawless has the audience attention from the first note to the last cymbal crash, leaving those watching wanting more.
The Lawless, Taylor Long, Kyle Villereal, Josh Redus & Travis Kilmer have developed a sound that fills the long vacant gap left by Cross Canadian Ragweed in 2010. Front man, Taylor Long belts out lyrics with melodic conviction while delivering driving guitar licks designed to melt even the most stoic face in the crowd. The band creates a wall of sound without losing a roots vibe that pulls every listener in, waiting to hear what they will do next.
Long’s influences and songwriting style come from the likes of Chris Knight and Jason Isbell, often spawning sometimes dark lyrics, full of self-reflection and personal struggles to which everyone can relate. Each song from the beginning of a show to the end is connected by one common thread. They all have melodic hooks that make fans leave with the guitar hooks ringing in their head until they can get back to the next show for another fix.
Addiction is real. It can be to alcohol, drugs, tobacco, people, money or music. If you need one more vice, go Lawless.
