Born and raised in the central Texas small town of Markham, singer/songwriter and guitarist Darryl Lee Rush spins whimsical tales of rural and urban Texas over gutsy and dusty backbeats. When he was old enough to play the honky tonks, Rush moved to Austin and joined the Big Johnsons. A chance to join the folk-rock band Fast Train persuaded Rush to move to Dallas. After Fast Train broke up, Rush decided to stay in Dallas and form a new band under his own name. With bass player Mike McShane, harmonica player Don Gallia, and drummer Andy Mayer, Rush built a solid Dallas fan base by playing his rocking brand of country in any bar that would take him and to any audience that would listen. Numerous shows later, Rush and his band were signed to Shiner Records. The label released their debut, Llano Avenue, in August of 2005.
