Frontman and songwriter Rich Layton began his serious musical education after college, playing harmonica with then-girlfriend Lucinda Williams in Austin, Texas. After honing their chops on street corners and dives, the two moved to Houston to join the seminal music scene at Anderson Fair. Rich became house harp player at the inner city club that was home to Townes Van Zandt, Nanci Griffith, Lightning Hopkins, Lyle Lovett and many others.
Breaking out of the folk circuit, Rich became a founding member of Houston’s premier rockin’ blues revue, Dr. Rockit & The Sisters of Mercy. He went on to play, record and tour with many Texas talents including Alan Haynes, the late Rocky Hill (brother of ZZ Top’s Dusty Hill) and Fort Worth sax maniac Johnny Reno. In 1985, the Lone Star State’s leading music magazine honored Rich as one of six Texas Harmonica Tornados, a list that included such luminaries as Kim Wilson and Delbert McClinton.In a special category Rich calls “Died-And-Gone-To-Heaven” are numerous performances with rock ‘n roll legend Bo Diddley and with long-time friend Buckwheat Zydeco. Rich also takes the stage with such musical pals as Lyle Lovett, Dave Alvin, Dale Watson, Teresa James & The Rhythm Tramps and many more whenever their paths cross.After 30 years in Texas, Rich moved to Portland and entered the vibrant NW music scene. In 2003, Rich Layton & The Troublemakers emerged with a high energy mix of original roots rock, honky-tonk and more to a growing local and regional audience. In 2005, the band released its first album "Chop Shop Pit Stop" featuring a stark and intense version of Lucinda Williams’ “Still I Long for Your Kiss.” The new album, "Tough Town," was co-produced by Rich and LA-based Terry Wilson, an ex-Texan, A-list bass player, producer and long-time music director for Eric Burdon.The 12 originals songs are sharply drawn tales of good times and bad choices, big dreams and bad timing. For the characters who inhabit Rich's songs, hope may hang by a thread, but it’s never out of reach. The recording captures Rich and his band at the crossroads of twang and tremolo, weaving a swampadelic soundtrack for the heart of a Gulf Coast Saturday night. Your table waits under the broken Lone Star beer sign. The Lone Star State’s leading music magazine honored Rich as one of six Texas Harmonica Tornados, a list that included such luminaries as Kim Wilson and Delbert McClinton.
Fellow Texan and Portland producer Terry Wilson worked well in helping forge the unique sound of this effort. Being a fellow Texas native, induced what he calls, “Texas Trash” to the over-all sound of the record by sprucing up vocals and strategically placing some of his secret mastery skills to the work. The co-production between he and Rich make this effort a double-barreled ‘Mojo Filter’ shot of rock and roll.
