Freak Show

by Tres Womack

Twelve very unique cuts. “It’s hard to categorize Tres’ music without hearing it for yourself. But when you listen to the CD you’re not going to hear anything prosaic, contrived, or overdone. Every song is original, meaningful, and better than the last.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Tres Womack

Tres grew up in Brownwood, Texas and now lives near Austin. A former teacher and coach, he joined the Texas music scene four years ago with the 5-song EP “real simple”. In 2006 he contributed to a “limited release” live record as a member of the get-o-cowboys. Since that time, he’s stayed busy fronting both his own band and the “get-o-cowboys.” Four years and 200 shows later, he’ll finally debut a full-length CD titled "freak show" (January 2008) featuring 12 unique songs penned by Womack.

The new record features a host of “Texas” talent including Keith Davis, James Hertless, Mike Henretty, Ron D’Argenio, (all former or current members of Brandon Rhyder’s band) Seth Allen (Josh Grider), Luke Adair, Josh Droegemueller, (get-o-cowboys & Luke and B) Tim Womack, Rob Stiteler, Scott Saunders, and Drew Womack (All former “Sons of the Desert” members). The project was tracked at five different locations in Austin and Nashville over a 14 month span.

While putting the finishing touches on his debut CD, Tres teamed up with songwriters Josh Droegemueller and Luke Adair (Luke and B) on their first "get-o-cowboys" studio effort. They finished tracking this November with familiar’s Hertless, Henretty, and D’Argenio. Austin notables Kimberly Kelly and John Garr lent their talents as well.

Song Notes...

no better than I am…about long term relationships and how people will adapt to a point, then they are who they are…this is what you get, I am who I am and you are who you are

nothing left…heartbreak…the desperation of someone who doesn’t want to give up… even when there’s nothing left

who’s responsible…I spent 18 years teaching and saw firsthand the despair caused by the lack of parental responsibility…one night we were eating out and witnessed the complete disregard for the mental and physical welfare of a three year old that led to this song…I tried to put myself in his shoes…unfortunately this was very easy to write

freak show…its always amazed me the personal level at which writers’ share with the general public…the pain, sorrow, issues, pleasures, etc…just lay it all out there for complete strangers…exposing ourselves and loved ones…song’s about selling those feelings like a ticket to a freak show

of my world…aka “sunday boy”…I don’t remember what set this song in motion other than the adage “opposite’s attract” and coming up with a new way to say that…but with "opposites" the highs are very high and lows can be catastrophic...like any song I write, I don’t commit to a genre…this song “happened” and was on my first EP…keith and james suggested we re-cut it...i’m glad we did

crashing down…about losing someone you love

sunday morning…there are times in everyone’s life that define who we are or what we will become…sunday morning is a time, place, experience…good, bad, right, wrong

gather ‘round… about the lack of integrity on both sides of the "news"…those who hunger for it and those who feed the machine…song came from a very sad story that was sensationalized by the media...

let it go…is about opportunities missed, disappointment caused, and choices made that moved the finish line back…

like I do…if you’ve ever been in a relationship, you’ve acted like a fool…like i do

around you…the song’s morphed over the years and turned out nothing like the live cut from 2005…which is funny because its usually the other way around…i kept it because seth allen played cello on it and i wanted it on the record…we cut the song in two parts and had to piece them together in post-production…unless seth happens to be on stage, you’ll get the original version during a live show…

what you see in me…my favorite cut on the record…james, keith, mike, ron, and i put a mic in the middle of the room and two takes later we had a “live - acoustic” version of this song
