Hotter than a jalapeno, cooler than the other side of the pillow, this multi-talented, multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter duo harmonizes like few artists can.
Their diverse backgrounds and love of similar musical styles bring elements of Americana, folk, country, blues, honky-tonk and Tex-Mex sounds into concert, with a decidedly Texas flavor.
Guitar, fiddle, mandolin, accordion and upright bass all come together with those magical harmonies to create a melodic blend that is much more than the sum of it''s parts.
Superb musicianship, intelligent songwriting and absolute professionalism complete the package, to produce a strong show every night.
"Paradise, Texas" is a state of mind, of life, of love. The Tex-Mex accordion of Grammy-winning Flaco Jimenez, complemented by the solid, swinging bass lines of fellow Texas Tornadoes/Doug Sahm alumnus Jack Barber, defines the border sound. The instrumental prowess and perfectly matched voices of Glenn and Kim make this collection of memorable songs -- Paradise, Texas.
