So my original artwork for the "Easy" single cover was kicked back today because the Lionel Richie likeness.  I was kinda expecting  that though, even though I have paid the licensing rights for the music. So - I made another one that I sent in today and hopefully it won't have any roadblocks.   I've put both here so you can check them out.  Although, it will be nice having OASPM on a cover, assuming it gets approved.

I want this guy to write my official biography one day





I've got some new music out y'all!  Set for an official 7/31 release, you can find some streaming versions here on my website as well as over on my SoundCloud page (see box of social media points of interest -->.   It's the first cover song I've recorded and it's a song I've always loved.  Did it the TMS way  -  tried to keep the soul and change the shoes.   Hope you enjoy it.  If so, or if you hate it please let me know;.   Oftentimes  my music is interpreted differently than I set out to create and I love hearing how other people feel about it.  If you're on the fence or could take it or leave it, then you're in the wrong place.  You wanna go here. 


I don't know what to say here.  This review is awesome and I'm very glad someone sees things my way out there haha. Really though read this!

Interview with TexMex Shaman – Fever In The South 

TexMex Shaman releases third hit track, “What It Do,” from EP, Fever in the South

Dallas, TX, May 20, 2019– TexMex Shaman’s third release, “What It Do,” from the EP, Fever in the South, is a tour de force of funk beats, guitar riffs, samples and loops, all combined to create a distinctive genre bending style. This track continues a style that independent music journalist Mike O’Cull describes  as “a fearless disregard for convention and a burning desire to subvert musical norms.”

“Each track on the EP is completely different auditory vision,” said Stephen Watkins, aka Tex Mex Shaman. “This track is a bit more down tempo with a touch of metal and psychedelia, but always with a grin.”

The six-track EP, Fever in the South, is the first part of a full album being composed by Watkins as he delivers the first tracks of this new project, Tex Mex Shaman. The full album, which will include five or six more tracks, is expected to be released in January 2020.

The goal of TexMex Shaman is to bend genres and put together musical sounds that give each listener their own journey through each track. The complexity and intense layers of every track, including “What It Do,” make them different with each new listening, providing music lovers with a new experience as new sounds and elements pop to the forefront. All of it is held together with a club quality beat and robust guitar tracks.

Speaking of an earlier release, “Roll Over Matryoshka”, StereoStickman founder & editor Rebecca Cullen said , “This composition showcases a clear love for the art-form, a clear intention and sentiment presented by the artist, but at the same time – it allows the listener to make it their own almost entirely. A rare and beautiful quality.”
