Texas Alt-Country Rockers, Free Willy Band, evoke elements of Country and Rock with grace throughout their latest album release, ‘Remember The Alamo’. Kicking off with the first track, “Amazing Gracie”, Free Willy Band lyrically creates the feeling of a mind drifting through discontent and yearning for connecting deeply with the star of the town. The second track, “Get in the Car”, takes a turn with a soulful Southern acoustic guitar strumming into the hearts of those who fancy romanticism and the simplicities of life that are overlooked by fear.
“God Has a Name” is the third track that lyrically speaks highly of a belief system and feeling that Free Willy Band has created through connecting with both their higher power and immediate surroundings. The fourth track, “Not Your Everyday Love Song”, is a sweet Southern girls musical dream as Free Willy Band serenades their lover with lyricism that is full of passion and sincerity. “As a Man Thinketh” is the fifth track that lyrically speaks the simple truth that acknowledging that the manner in which you choose to think creates your external and internal reality. Free Willy Band keep their landmark style of Folk/Southern instrumentals flowing throughout the sixth track, “Another Day Another Dollar”, as they lyrically dive into leading life with a blue collar mentality.
“It’s Good If You Like It” is the seventh track that dials back to the gems of wisdom that our parents share with us within our burgeoning days of youth while reminding listeners that free thought is important to develop. The eighth track, “Meant to Be”, is anchored in love and peculiar charm that attracts good old-fashioned souls and listeners that share their enduring love without holding back. “Sugar Baby” is the instrumental ninth track that meets generations of audiences with blues-infused delight and rhythm that is brightly-colored and free. The title track, “Remember The Alamo”, speaks of the moment in which an individual feels within their core that they have met one of their matches throughout life that sparks a fire within. Closing out with “Medley: The Star Spangled Banner / America The Beautiful”, Free Willy Band adds their unique touch to the classic with respect, integrity and tact.
