Alternative folk rock from Austin, TX. Richly melodic. From starkness of voice and guitar, to lushness of layered strings and harmonies. Timeless love songs. Powerful stories. Subtly humorous. Ray Davies meets Neil Young.

Details:
"Eggbo's 'Flight of an Urban Legend' could have easily been released circa 1971 along side such great albums as the first by Grin or Crazy Horse or even Neil Young's 'After the Gold Rush.' Had that been the case, we would all know every lyric to every song and this would have been a staple in our musical diets for many years by now. It could also have been released along side the 1988 Heyday album by Chris Cacavas & Junkyard Love which it sits so well beside. But 2000 was the year that gave us this absolutely brilliant album. So there's some catching up to do to establish this record in the hearts of music fans as the bright, shining jewel that it is. We have a new desert island disc."

Since the 80's Eggbo has been one of my favorite singers, if you know how many great singers come from Austin you know that is a compliment lined with "this guy has great talent in opening one's heart" a compassionate songster with Plantlike precision. I would buy anything he put out. Oh, by the way, since the 80's he's just gotten better.
