ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes


Lone Star Hippie started out as a few other "Free Thinking" Texas bands have. A vision, a guitar, and a old cluttered garage in Houston. Founder, Mike Morris is not new in the music scene. Mike got his first drum set at age 9 and by age 12 was playing drums full time with various well known local country, blues, and rock players around the Greater Houston area. At 18 Mike started an all original punk/rockabilly band called The Brewed, that made one album but disbanded shortly after. Since then, he has played or set-in for a number of bands of many genres, but Mike's main influence is from psychedelic music. In the beginning of 2003, Mike laid down his drumsticks and picked up his guitar to focus on writing the songs he had going on in his head. Then in early 2006 ( the year Lone Star Hippie was also formed ) Morris was called upon to join up with world renowed Zydeco musician, C.J. Chenier & the Red Hot Louisiana Band, to go on tour playing drums. C.J. is the son of Grammy Award winning Legend, Clifton Chenier, who was acclaimed "The King of Zydeco". Many world tours later Mike is still working with Chenier and for now juggling both acts. Morris likes the experience of the road, and uses the opportunity to do some of his best songwriting. "Sometimes you can have a moment of clarity when you are as far from home as you ever have been, and all alone" Lone Star Hippie is truly who Mike is, and the band is the sole vision and focus for him. Mike was blessed to meet Houston producer and ex International Artist engineer Frank Davis. In the 1960's Davis recorded all of the great Texas psychedelic bands such as The 13th Floor Elevators, The Moving Sidewalks (Billy Gibbons), The Golden Dawn, The Red Krayola, The Lost and Found, Bubble Puppy, and even Blues legend Lightnin' Hopkins and more. In the summer of 2009 Frank invited Lone Star Hippie into his studio to make their debut album. Jerry Page from the band Helios Creed, engineered the album. Jerry is also now the bassist for Lone Star Hippie. One great feature of Lone Star Hippie is that all of the players get along well and are great friends. The most special is 18yr old drummer, Chanse Morris, is Mike's son. Chanse has followed in his fathers footsteps, or lets say drumbeats. A young Chanse picked up the drumsticks when his father laid them down to play guitar. With Morgan "T-Bird" Wright on lead guitar. T-Bird joined the band recently, just in time to start working on the material for a second album. Bringing a few of his own songs and ideas to the table. He and Mike have been arranging and putting them all together, and the Mojo is definitely there. Mr. Wright can hold his own with some of the finest of lead guitar players around. Morgan and Mike have been friends since childhood and work together like a machine. It's truly a friends and family band. The vision is to make a soulful, psychedelic based music. A real Rock-N-Roll "groove gumbo" if you will, where the more ingredients you add the better. Throwing in some of life's personal trials and journeys through the mind, body, and soul, but with a better message for all in this modern day where the hope for enlightenment seems to be fading away...

“LONE STAR HIPPIE - This is a great take on psychedelia, considering how many Freak Folkers are making psyche seem like it has to be boring and arty. This is three parts Skynyrd, one part jam band, a jigger of blues rock, and six strings of guitar choking that qualifies as trippy while never losing muscle. If this band wouldn't rule the stage in the bar you drink at then you need to find a new bar. Posted by Roctober Magazine Reviews: April 4th 2011”
