LLOYD MAINES’ FIRST ALBUM!
September 2 is a big day in music because that’s the day Grammy- award- winning Texas based producer, session player, musician, and Austin City Limits Hall of Fame member, Lloyd Maines will release his first album,
Eagle Number 65.
Here’s what Lloyd has to say about the landing of this eagle:
“During 50 years of recording, I’ve either produced or played on around 5000 projects, and I am very grateful for that opportunity. I started playing guitar at the age of 13 from a Mel Bay chord book. I started playing pedal steel at age 17. Steel is my main instrument but over the years, because of needing something different on recordings, I learned to play several other instruments.
During year two of the COVID pandemic, I decided to produce an album on myself. It was recorded in my little, funky man cave studio at our house in Austin. Because I have four very talented grandkids, they are included on the album.”
There are 12 songs on the new album, including “Auld Lang Syne” – and New Year’s Eve is not as far away as the Texas heat makes it seem.
