The Texas Gentlemen
As for how the Texas quintet manages to slide so seamlessly between various styles and sounds? Well, these are no ordinary Gents. Rather, the members—co-singers and frontmen Nik Lee and Daniel Creamer (who also handle guitar and keys, respectively); guitarist Ryan Ake; bassist Scott Edgar Lee, Jr.; and drummer Aaron Haynes (who since the recording has been replaced by Paul Grass)—have spent the last half-decade or so logging thousands of hours of stage and studio time behind a wide array of artists, from legends including Kris Kristofferson, George Strait and Joe Ely to young whippersnappers like Leon Bridges and Shakey Graves.
And while some people (okay, many people) have whispered in one another’s ears and written kind words about how this crack outfit of stage and studio aces is nothing less than the second coming of celebrated backing units like the Wrecking Crew, the Swampers and one-time Bob Dylan associates the Band, you certainly didn’t hear it from the Gents themselves. “We never instigated or condoned any of that,” Nik Lee says, and then lets out a self-effacing laugh. “We definitely appreciate the comparisons…we just don't think they’re accurate.”
Drummer Damien Llanes and bassist Gian Ortiz made their respective journeys to Texas as young men before settling in Austin. Judging by their exquisite skill, they were keeping busy. Damien’s drums manage an often orchestral level of flourish and intrigue while always honoring the absolute and certain foundation required of rock-n-roll drumming. Gian, similarly, delivers the whole spectrum of bass from tastefully traditional blues-based lines to effervescently expansive melodies and chords as the song and set call for it. This is all done while they provide supporting vocals behind Dylan Bishop’s lead vocals and guitar. Dylan’s precocious talents span a breadth of rock-n-roll that makes one wonder if he found a crossroads of his own and made a deal.
