ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In mid-April 2010 Americana songwriter Dylan Sneed met five friends in a 100-year-old farmhouse in the low country of South Carolina to record his latest album, Texodus. The five-day session was a flurry of activity, as the group worked day and night tracking 14 songs. And best of all, it was all paid for before they even pushed "record."

During the previous two months Dylan, a native Texan, raised money to fund the project through the website Kickstarter.com. His fans came through, pledging 120% of the budget. All told, Dylan raised over $8,000.

texodus puts a smile on my face
this album has become a must have on my playlist! sitting at work, walking to dogs, doing the dishes, no matter what i am doing, texodus brings a smile to my face! i love the way this album has come together and the first thing i feel when listening to it is a sense of home, calm, and peace. i also love the way it is so easy to identify with these songs and how you can feel a different aspect of each one as if it was written just for you to enjoy. i recommend this album to everyone who loves music as it is a must have album! thank you mr. sneed for yet another wonderful creation!

Songwriting beyond his years
Everytime I listen to this album I am surprised by the emotional depth of Dylan Sneed's songwriting. There is an underlying sadness in his music that is honest and endearing. And he manages to connect with me, a man 20 yrs his elder, in a way that I wouldn't have thought possible. He expresses a lifetime of experiences that I am only just beginning to understand myself, seasoned with just the right blend of whimsy and grace. This is an album that deserves to be listened to again and again. A sweet and spicy marinade for the soul!

...the next step
For more than a decade I have had the pleasure of hearing Dylan Sneed’s music evolve and mature. From his first studio album, through his live records and his latest studio endeavors Dylan has continued to impress my musical tastes and please my ears. Texodus highlights Dylan’s eloquent and conversational songwriting abilities with his musical talents and knowledge. Instead of relying so heavily on his own masterful guitar skills, Dylan has invited fellow musicians to help in the Texodus experiense, thereby giving it a fuller and more complete sound that compliment each songs own subject matter. Dylan’s ear for instrument combinations and composition-whether intentional or accidental-reaches a higher level of maturity. His cover of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” gives the listener a new perspective on an old hit, while the title track, Texodus offers a good, foot-tapping beat with instrospective lyrics.
You can’t go wrong with Texodus. Even the stripped down live shows that feature Dylan, himself on guitar and harmonica compliment the acoustic feel of his studio album, even without the added instrumentation. The Texodus experience is an all-around good time. Whatever your motive-be it enjoyment, appreciation or critique-Texodus is sure to please.

Reminiscent of an old friend in your favorite coffee shop, singing just for you
The 12 tunes from the long-time Texan now living in South Carolina embrace 11 originals (including one instrumental) and a mournful cover of the late Robert Hazard’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” made popular by one Cyndi Lauper.
Sneed’s acoustic meditations on love and faith are couched with tasteful guitar picking, feathery percussion, quiet keyboards, and an evocative fiddle.

However, for all the hushed cuts, the best is “Selfish Boy” that gallops along nicely. The title cut and “Climbing the Wall” also clip away at a lively pace. That spirited approach effectively buoys the loping layers of “Love You like I Do” as well, pondering the value of grace.

Yet, the core quieter tunes wrestle with matters of the heart and soul, such as the strength of memories in “All Around Me” and especially in “The Garden” as Sneed sings he will “never know what I have/Until it’s gone.”

“Texodus” closes with “Under the Sheets,” a fiddle-driven lullaby about living life sung as a duet that languidly morphs in a waltz that reminds us to “Don’t keep your eyes on a mountain that’s so steep/The best thing to do is to breathe deep/Now.”

That's some good music
Every time I listen to this album, I feel happier and more at peace. It's not only good music, talented singing, guitar, piano and violin and drums playing, it's comforting lyrics and songs about life situations that we can all relate to. I also happen to know that Dylan is a great guy and he doesn't want just a ton of fans, he wants to get to know you and thank you personally for supporting him as an artist. So please buy this album! It's totally worth it!

Under the Sheets
This album is a beautiful album, and Under the Sheets is currently my favorite song. Awesome recording, great job!

Great album
This is a great album - one that needs to be shared with others. My favorite tracks are "Selfish Boy" and "Midnight Promenade," though every track on the album evokes a different emotion. Dylan's lyrics are simple but profound. He is a truly talented lyricist and instrumentalist, and this comes through clearly in this album. Buy more than one album; you'll want to share it with someone.

This album will make you smile from ear to ear!5
I was charmed from the first few notes, and it just got deeper from there. He sings the stuff you hide away in your heart with wit, humor, and complete honesty. I find myself smiling even when he sings of fear or heartbreak, because his lyrics delight me so. He is such a talented storyteller, poet, and tunesmith. I can't listen to this album without singing along. These melodies will serenade you long after you've left your car. Texodus is definitely a trip you want to take!

All Natural Good Texas Music
Howdy! I just need a moment of your time to tell you about the great new CD by Dylan Sneed called Texodus. Dylan is not a selfish boy as he pours out his soul on yet another set of well crafted songs. This is the kind of music I like to have all around me, especially while at work where there are things that can make me want to climb this wall or that wall...it's so true that girls just want to have fun and that includes listening to good music! The tunes will have you toe-tapping and humming along in no time while finding your own relevance in the contemplative lyrics. These songs are good to listen to anywhere, be it under the sheets, on a midnight promenade, while working in the garden or on a Texodus of your own. Real quality music! Well, I won't keep you. Still, baby, you need to get this CD! It may not love you like I do but it's worth adding to your music collection! Have a little prudence & get a few copies to give loved ones for Christmas!
