CDs 'n' Music...
A note from Harley...
I have spent many many years out on the road, all over the US playing music with and for other Artists. Most of the 800 plus songs I have written sat in a trunk in the attic, untouched, unrecorded, and unsang. In 1991 while returning from a gig with Johnny Paycheck, I was in a bad car wreck and broke my neck, injured my head and lower spine. While healing from those injuries I began to write in earnest and made a firm commitment with myself to start recording my own music. The result has been the successful release of these CD's with more on the way. My first CD, HARLEY'S ANGELS, is a compilation of songs that range from hard country to country rock. I wrote all but one song on the CD. Wild Irish Rose, written by Bobby Braddock (He stopped loving her Today) struck a chord in my heart. Being a Vietnam Vet myself, I felt it was important to include it on the CD. The rest are reflective of my life experiences, love songs, and heart felt ballads to give rest to the soul.
My second CD was more happenstance than intentional. I was in the studio with my friend, fellow musician, and Engineer, Buddy Stephens recording a new CD we were to call Campfire Songs when the terrorist attacks of September 11th happened. From there we put Campfire on the back burner, (lil pun der, HaHaHa) and in six weeks I wrote, recorded and released REDNECK WHITE AND BLUE. To date it has sold over 2000 copies, a meager amount for the big boys, but alot for me. I hope you enjoy this and my other albums. My old singing buddy, Tom Hunter, released an album back in 1990, most of it recorded in Nashville. The album is now available again with added bonus tracks. Tom and I have performed under the name, HunterBrown for many years, and we get together whenever we can.
Hawaii and Texas share quite a distance between them, but the Texas Hawaii Connection is growing stronger by the minute as you can hear in my CD, Tales of the Hana Road. More great music is on the way from everyone here at Texas Records.
A note from Tom...
Quite a few years back, I met Harley Brown at the Old Top Rail (may she rest in peace) songwriter's night, hosted by Ronny Spears. Ronny had organized the event and knew I was looking to put a band together and knew that Harley was looking to do the same. The result was the band HunterBrown; an immediate success.
Unfortunately Harley had some medical troubles and had to bow out (ever so gracefully I might add). Harley is back on his feet, living in Hawaii and Texas which limits our time to perform together. HOWEVER, I am excited to be working with Harley and wholeheartedly look forward to what the future holds.
