Your Texas Music is dedicated to Texas music of any stripe — from gospel, classical, jazz, country, and hip-hop, to blues, bluegrass, rock, Americana, and folk — you name it.

We're fans of struggling, undiscovered artists, working and paying their dues. We're also fans of people who have paid their dues, but for one reason or another have never gained admission to major label stardom.

Your Texas Music is the place to go for tickets to shows by Texas artists, Texas music CDs on independent labels, Texas music downloads, and art by Texas artists.

Your State — Your Music.

A few words from Don:
In the eighties, Gustavo Wenjoe introduced me to the songs of Nueva Trova. Reading “NACLA Reports,” I learned Oliver North’s role in financing Reagan’s Contra’s. And in Mexico City, I met the woman who became my spouse. The Mexican peso was revalued and cross border business suffered. An El Paso club went from booking two week engagements to weekends only. Devaluation was followed by the Texas oil bust and real estate crash. I found extra work as an actor, worked as an artist in residence, and studied for a Master’s degree in Spanish. Amidst all this, I wrote and performed a one man theater show called “El Peregrino.” Many of the songs on the LP were part of that show. Originally released on vinyl, the recording has been re-mastered for CD and I’ve added two extra songs.

Thanks for your support throughout the years, DS
