“This business of music is populated with characters of every variety that humanity has to offer. The rule seems to be ‘the more topsy-turvy the character, the more interesting and valid the artist.’ In the bohemian cast of troubadours popularly known as Texas Music (Yes, the Lone Star State has its own brand…you’ve never heard of “Connecticut Music“, have you?) there exists the usual and varying degrees of talent and relevance. Tom McElvain, when we’re speaking of the current wave of the North Texas region, represents the higher order of that rank-and-file.”
