ONLY BEAST: "I stumbled across Only Beast simply because of their name and instantly became enamored of their dynamic and incredible front woman Danielle Renee, and the sheer raw power of the rock and roll that comes pouring out of her throat. Let's turn our attention now to another key ingredient [...] drummer John Salinas. The man is like some sort of ordered chaos who beats up and down the sides of songs in a whirlwind of rhythm that always feels like its on the verge of falling apart, the way a death-defying trapeze act does. It never falls, though."
- Jef Rouner, Houston Press
THE WHEEL WORKERS: "They are simultaneously brilliant and down-to-earth, sincerely progressive and catchy as hell, that rare band that can incorporate thoughtful politics into music while keeping things fun and engaging...The Wheel Workers are freaking awesome, and [with Citizens] they’ve gone a very different direction from the path they marched down last time. And it’s good. Oh, is it good." - Jeremy Hart, Space City Rock
"if you happened to miss when I said that this record was top notch, then I’ll just say again that it’s a true masterpiece.." - David Garrick, Free Press Houston
THE BRUNSON THEATER: Texas has a dirty secret creeping up from the Dirty Bay. Although it's affecting the air right now...it's not toxic. The stories you will hear confront a toxic subject but you will likely enjoy the journey whether you're skimming the surface or digging in deep.
The sound will demand your attention while warming your heart. Even on the haunting songs you'll find yourself singing like a child. An effective and rich bed of harmony supports every note. It seems impossible for a two minute long song spit out 21 chords yet never get in the way of the melody. No, this is not jazz. This music is for everybody!
This is rock music from a band known as THE BRUNSON THEATER! The music native to Texas new and old covers a wide variety of styles but the forbidden music that's been spinning around the Dirty Bay for a while recently spawned a piece of work incompatible with any southern musical heritage.
With veteran musician, Ryan Guidry, singing, writing and arranging the album promises to be one of the most melodically infectious and satisfying rock records of the past 15 years. Imagine Peter Gabriel era Genesis sung with Justin Hayward's (Moody Blues) timbre cross pollinating with The Beach Boys and Radiohead into a palatable flowing collection of songs informed by The Beatles.
