JERRY DAVID DECICCA

 

Jerry David DeCicca is the singer-songwriter from The Black Swans and producer of records by legendary outsider songwriters from the 1960s and 1970s like Larry Jon Wilson (Monument Records, Heartworn Highways), Ed Askew (ESP-Disk, 1967), and Bob Martin (RCA, 1973). He also produced a collection of vintage recordings by Rob Galbraith due late 2015 and provided research and liner notes to the Elyse Weinberg “lost” album, both courtesy of the Numero group.

His debut solo album, Understanding Land, was self released in summer of 2014. His forthcoming album is being produced by Jeb Loy Nichols summer of 2015

“DeCicca is a careful, precise songwriter, but the songs don’t necessarily sound written. Instead, they seem like they occurred to him naturally and ineluctably. ” — Pitchfork

“DeCicca’s songs have always been steeped in the kinds of subjective truth that we find in history, movies, literature, and music. He uses allusion, metaphor, and history to weave his own hybrid mythology; none of his songs feel strictly confessional — even if they are — which is part of what makes the Black Swans’ sparse Americana so compelling. ”

Chris King was born and raised in rural South Texas & now resides in Austin, Texas.

GABE WOOTTON

From the piney woods of East Texas to the flat lands outside Lubbock, from the rolling prairies of Central Texas to the sandy shores of the Virgin Islands, Gabe Wootton has covered more than a few miles. With an eye on the horizon and an ear in the wind, he has found melody in the mundane and rhyme in the hum of life. A sketch of scenes in passing, character studies of the broken and the jubilant, triumphant tales of ruin to joyful lamentations of woe, Gabe’s songs run the gamut incorporating elements of all the music he has stumbled upon throughout his life.
