Texas Slim could very well be a reincarnate of a passed soulful singer who plays guitar and is once again carving out a niche in blues music history.
Texas Slim
Born and raised in Dallas, TX.... Slim from an early age met and played with the great Alex Moore, (who first recorded the blues in 1929) and later Little Joe Blue.

In March of 2002 Slim released his second solo effort "I Have Arrived" which includes the talents of Aaron Comess (Spin Doctors). In addition to his own records, Slim has record and toured with Cold Blue Steel, Randy McAllister, FOAMY (New Bohemians), Wanda King (Freddie King's Daughter), and EC Scott. Slim has graced the stages of the House of Blues as well as one of the first artists to ever play a Hard Rock Cafe and has opened for the likes of Bobby Blue Bland, Johnny Winter, Savoy Brown, Blue Oyster Cult, Etta James, The Blues Brothers (Dan Akroyd, Jim Belushi) and countless others. In 2006 the band filmed several TV Commercials for Famous Dave's BBQ based out of Minneapolis and they have aired in over 30 states in the U.S. Click here to read an article about the commercial deal.

2009 has proven to be a great year for Slim with an extensive 8 week European tour in support of his brand new release slated to hit the U.S. market in September 2009.
