“AMERICA’S SINGING COWBOY” –STEVE MITCHELL

Steve is a native 7th generation Texan, with a rich ancestry of early cattlemen who were among the first pioneers settling the western frontier.  For history buffs, his forefathers helped establish the uncharted cattle trails with such noted cattlemen as Oliver Loving and Charles Goodnight.
Steve is a top-level vocalist, musician and composer, who combine his singing and acting career with his everyday lifestyle, along with his strong patriotism and unwavering faith in God.
He is committed to the preservation of western music in its purest form.  Steve has been featured on the CBS Morning Show, Good Morning America, A&E Channel, Westerns Channel, Great American Wild West Shows, Talk America Radio Network, Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO., Six Flags over Texas, TV-5- Branson, The Nashville Network, KABC TV-Eye on LA., National Westerns-Denver, Co., Mirage Hotel, Las Vegas, Nev. and more.
Much like his forefathers, who served in the Texas Legislature, when Texas first became a state, and wrote and published detailed accounts of life on the Texas frontier, Steve’s songs are enriched by his real life, rich cowboy experiences.  He has many tales to tell of the Old West.
Steve is an inductee into the “Gene Autry Cowboy Museum” in Gene Autry, Okla.
His music is laced with cowboy tradition.  Every melodic note and inflection of voice portrays open range, mesquite trees, sage brush and golden sunsets.
Steve and his lovely wife, Eileen (a noted opera singer), blend their voices beautifully, pleasing audiences throughout the US.

 

Cowboy Poetry and Music w/ Martin & Murray

Tim Martin of “Martin and Murray” has been singing and playing music for over 40 years. The lifestyle, values and culture of the Cowboy and life in North Central Texas permeate his music. He is doing his part to keep the Spirit of the West alive by writing original songs and covering artists like Dave Stamey, Ian Tyson, R.W. Hampton, as well as the old trail songs that have been a part of Cowboy lore for generations.
Tim also has a strong gospel/bluegrass influence coming from his younger days in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Tim’s first professional work was singing second tenor in the original Christian Music Hall of Fame group “Acappella” out of Paris, Tennessee Tim combines his love for music with his work as a hospice chaplain by singing for many of his patients and currently playing for 18 nursing homes a month from Baird to Stephenville and Brady to Ranger.
Tim met Glenn Murray when they both served as chaplains for hospice in Comanche Texas. Glenn became the bassist in Tim’s band “Spirit of the West’. Over time it was clear that they both had a passion for the cowboy way of life and music and they formed “Martin and Murray” with the goal of playing at Cowboy Poetry Gatherings, Rodeo Events, and Cowboy Churches. As well as working on putting together their first CD, Martin and Murray are also working music for a project related to the story/screenplay “Transcending Times – The Charles Alsonso Kennedy Story”
