I just got back home from my January Texas run and would like to thank everyone involved. We had some great shows,quite the turnout in Austin and I was graced by the Honky Tonk Princess Shelli Coe on some angelic harmonies at the Scenic Loop and the Red Eyed Fly.

We had an impromptu Texas Tombstones reunion for a packed house at the Giddy Ups in Manchaca after my set with John Duer. John played bass and sang with me the whole tour not to mention driving as well, my hat is off to him.

To Top it off we had a great visit with Gordon Ames when we appeared on Big G’s Texas Roadshow and got to play and chew the fat with Jim Beal at KSYM in San Antonio. I’ll be back for a handful of shows in the Spring when I appear at the Stars of Texas Fest in Houston.

A big thanks to Ian Duer who retrieved me from San Antonio {we broke down in front of the venue} and drove me to Ft Worth just in time for my last gig and connecting flight home at 6am the next morning. Im back at home for a short spell now and trying to figure out to get breakfast tacos Fed Exed to me and planning our next  tour. Up next we are working on MidWest and East Coast Dates and it looks like I may be headed back into the studio for a few special projects that will come to light later this year. For now you can get updates on shows at http://www.stevietombstone.net/shows.html .

After a chance meeting with Roy Acuff, Stevie (then, a young man) was certain he would always be a musician. Almost three decades later, he has become an accomplished performer and songwriter. Stevie has now released five solo albums and several music videos, produced music with his 1980s swamp rockabilly band, The Tombstones, and made appearances all over the world.Stevie’s band mates, over the years, have been a veritable whos who of underground and nationally recognized players, featuring members of Circus of Power, Wilco, the Georgia Satellites, and Jason & The Scorchers. Priding himself in his ability to cross genres, he has also had the honor of sharing the bill with the likes of Leon Russell, the Stray Cats, Greg Allman, Willie Nelson, Drive By Truckers, Johnny Bush & the Ramones, just to name a few. He is currently living in Upstate New York with his wife and child when not touring. Stevie is presently publicizing his most current release Greenwood, an autobiographical account of his life as a father, husband and traveling musician.
