Curtis McMurtry

Rear Window Listening Room, 107 E. Menefee Ave., Ganado, TX 77962

 

Though Curtis McMurtry is only 23 years of age, many of the characters in his songs seem to have given up on life decades ago. His debut solo album, Respectable Enemy (due out August 2014) chronicles the narrations of unapologetically bitter individuals still haunted by the ghosts of lovers and friends they have long since driven away. Few other songwriters inhabit such lonely, spiteful people with such conviction. From the doomed narrator of "Foxhole" to the resigned nostalgia of "Eleanor's House" Curtis writes to break your heart into sharp, jagged pieces.

Curtis was born and raised in Austin, Texas and grew up listening to local songwriters like Matt The Electrician, Jon Dee Graham, and his father, James McMurtry. From 2009-2013 Curtis studied music composition at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, New York, primarily writing contemporary chamber music for banjo and strings. In 2013, Curtis moved to Nashville to sharpen his songwriting skills by co-writing with veteran writers including Fred Koller and Guy Clark.

"Curtis McMurtry is a talented new artist, and we got to see him in an intimate setting, right at the beginning" -Barry Gilbert, No Depression

"One way to bear the weight of an influence is to embrace it, and Curtis' take on ‘Gulf Road’ was a perfect way to introduce and honor his father"- Jonathan Bernsterin, American Songwriter

The Steel Wheels - Dinner Show

 —  —

Rear Window Listening Room, 107 E. Menefee Ave., Ganado, TX 77962

 

When you think of one of the best shows you have ever seen, The Steel Wheels has to come out on top. We are fortunate to be bringing them, for your listening pleasure, for the third time.

The last time they were here, there were dozens of Rear Window patrons that didn't get to see them, so, this time around they will perform two shows. The first show will begin with Dinner, served at 6:00PM and a curtain time of 7:00PM where The Steel Wheels will play two 45 minute sets with a short break in between.

The dynamics the Steel Wheels project leave a continuous ebb & flow of chills throughout the evening. It truly doesn't get any better than this!

The Steel Wheels - Late Show

Rear Window Listening Room, 107 E. Menefee Ave., Ganado, TX 77962

 

This is the second show for Tuesday October 21st. Dinner will not be served at this show, and The Steel Wheels will play a straight 90 minute set ... Concert Style!

If you, like many, will get tickets to both shows, you will not be disappointed, because their repertoire is vast and no two performances are the same.

The dynamics the Steel Wheels project leave a continuous ebb & flow of chills throughout the evening. It truly doesn't get any better than this!

Richard Smith & Julie Adams

Rear Window Listening Room, 107 E. Menefee Ave., Ganado, TX 77962

 

I really don't know what to say about this phenomenal duo, except that if you miss this performance, you are doing yourself a great disservice. First, if you want to know how good Richard Smith is, just ask Tommy Emmanuel, Monte Montgomery, Andy McKee, or any guitarists you might consider to be great ... they will all give Richard high praise. As for Julie Adams ... she is a classically trained cellist who is in high demand as a session musician when she is in Nashville. She has performed world wide, and has played on many songs you have listened to over the years. This is one of the best show's you will ever hear, and to be in the intimate setting of the Rear Window ... well ... it just doesn't get any better that that. If the moon and planets all align properly, they may have classical guitarist, Valerie Hartzell, join them. More on this show to come, soon!
