New Braunfels band, Poor J. Brown draws from their environment and life experiences to create soulful, authentic, Texas music. Their second full-length album, Where the River Meets the Rails is a testament to that. The record is named after a spot on the Guadalupe River where the band has gathered over the years to fish, drink beer, barbecue, write songs, and host their annual crawfish boil. A railroad bridge towers above the pebble beach where they like to hang out, and train conductors always wave as they pass above. It’s the kind of place that is pure Texas, and so is this record.
Tracks like “The Way of the Gun” are reminiscent of the early days of Texas blues with driving guitar riffs and solos that would make Doyle Bramhall proud. “Put it in the Gumbo” is a catchy east Texas Cajun song that is fast becoming a fan favorite. “The song is so simple and silly that I had no idea it would become so popular” added songwriter Leon Waddy. “My mom is from Madisonville, Louisiana and she grew up poor. Her gumbo recipe had anything and everything in it…depending on what was in the fridge. That’s what the song is about.”
Much like their debut album, Where the River Meets the Rails is a musical roller coaster ride that includes upbeat Texas country, funk, straight forward rock, and even some ballads. The most powerful of all is the country rock anthem “Daddy’s Son.” It’s a song Waddy wrote about his father, who passed away a few months ago. “The songs not just about my dad, but the legacy of hard work, honesty, and integrity he instilled in his children.” Waddy summed it up this way, “It’s about being the man your father raised you to be.”
Last spring, Poor J. Brown celebrated the band’s first year anniversary with new lead singer, Myles Smith. Their original singer Dave Fenley, of America’s Got Talent Fame, moved to Nashville to pursue his solo career two years ago. The bands excited to be releasing the first album with Myles because it’s a representation of what they sound like now. Smith had some pretty big shoes to fill, but his vocal range and gravel-road soul comes through in every track. He was the right man for the job.
