Wow! It's hard to write about the Brazos Brothers without also talking about the Brazos River. The river begins in New Mexico. Then, in West Texas, we have the Double Mountain Fork, Running Water Fork and, what gives that Brazos coffee it's great taste, the Salt Fork. Just as the waters of the river are varied, so are the Brazos Brothers songs. Since we have played music together in various other settings for longer than I care to admit, folk, rock, country and a little jazz are all in there. In 1986, Jack Stephenson, Rocky Randall and Garry Spradlin formed SRS Music with the intent of writing music strictly for sale to established artists. By the time I paddled alongside, they had two or three minnow buckets full of tunes. With the addition of my bass guitar, and the pedal steel in the studio, the performance side of the music began to emerge. After hearing some of our 'rough cuts', another brother from way back upstream invited us to his RockHouse Studio to record a few songs and see how they sounded under better conditions. It was during these first sessions that Earl Musick started calling us the Brazos Brothers, and it just seemed a natural name for a bunch of guys that grew up on and in and still live near the Brazos River. Now Steve Hardin has come aboard, adding drums and new inspiration. We invite you also to come aboard and go with us as we drift past the sandbars, willow trees and sunsets of life's river that flows always toward the deeper pool of water. - Gene Scott.
