The Lubbock Legacy Continues

In the North West corner of the great state of Texas lies a little town known locally as the "Hub-City." It gained this name because it is the center for the economy, education, and health care for a multi-county region of Texas known as the South Plains. It wasn't until I moved here and started to venture out into this community did I realize that not only is Lubbock, Texas the hub for those forementioned things in this area but it is also the center of growth and development of a large number of insanely talented musicians and singer/songwriters. Lubbock is not a fluke in producing just a couple of popluar artists like local legend Buddy Holly or the famed Dixie Chicks lead singer Natalie Maines. In fact, once you start exploring the local music scene in Lubbock you start to believe that there must be something in the water. And if this is true Ronnie Eaton must be chugging the stuff.

Ronnie's debut release, called the Moth Complex, is a testament to the great local music scene of Lubbock. Not only does it highlight the singer/songwriters sexy country/rock voice and his abilities as a lyricist and songwriter but it also showcases the talent of the other great local artists who contributed to this album. All instruments were perfomed by local artists and the album was produced and mixed locally. Even the cover was done by a local artist (who happens to be Ronnie's wife). It's because of this great collaboration by true artists and their love for music that we have been blessed by the release of this album.

The album begins with an upbeat and catchy tune that is also the first single to be released on the album. "No Way to Tell" has the ability to rocket Ronnie to the next level if the right ears fall on it. You'll find yourself humming or singing the hook long after you've listened to it. Or (as happened with my wife and kids as I was listening to it) it might spark a spontaneous dance party in the living room. There is a reason that this song is the single release as it is quite infectious and has the formula to make a local artist a national sensation.

The single is obviously there to entice you into Ronnie's world. But like the devil might do with temptation and sin, once you've tasted it you'll want more and more and by the time you've listened to the whole thing you'll realize it's not at all what you expected at the beginning.

The album continues with songs that really take you on a journey through the life of people you might come across as you travel through Texas. They are filled with pain, heartache, joy and grace. If the music is the telling of Ronnie's life then there is no doubt he has experienced hardship and has poured all of that into these songs. Also put into his music is the apparent influence of local Texas artists like Robert Earl Keen and some of the greats like Tom Petty and Ryan Adams.

It's the kind of album that you'll want to listen to every song on the album. There are definitely a few gems on there like "Smile and Nod" and "Dashboard" which you'll find yourself hitting the repeat button a few times. But every song has the ability to draw you in and experience the life of the character Ronnie has created in your mind.

I am so thankful to know Ronnie personally and blessed that I have watched this rising local artist begin his journey to success in music. Which, if he keeps writing stuff like this, he no doubt will be. It's not often that an artist's freshman album release is so well done but something special has been created with the Moth Complex. It will be one of those coveted albums that people will come back too after he has been making music for years and has released even greater albums since.

Don't pass on this one!
