This week on Beale Street Caravan we feature Greyhounds. Greyhounds are a fantastic band that might be under most folk’s radar right now, but we don’t expect that to last much longer – they’re making a big statement with a brand new record that’s got heads turning. Andrew Trube and Anthony Farrell have been collaborators in some form or fashion for over 15 years – as session musicians and songwriters, on the road backing other artists, and working together on a catalog of songs that they’ve released sporadically under the Greyhounds moniker. Their newest effort, Accumulator, is out this week; it’s their first, formal release and it’s powerful stuff.  Also on the program, we continue our series The Man Who Invented Rock and Roll. This week, the late Sam Phillips talks about Rufus Thomas.

About the artist:

As Greyhounds, guitarist Andrew Trube and keyboardist Anthony Farrell have been making music and touring for 15 years, refining and developing a sound Trube calls “Hall and Oates meet ZZ Top.” The band also has long ties to Memphis, home of the soul that inspires them.
Ardent Music, the independent record label based out of legendary Ardent Studios in Memphis, Tennessee, expects to build on the fanbase the band has developed both on the road and as a staple of the Austin music scene. Label director Reed Turchi says, “We committed to three albums not only because we believe in these guys, not only because they’re great musicians and songwriters, but because they’ve been incredibly prolific.” “We’re always writing,” Trube says. “We’ve got songs for eight albums.”

Ardent has had a long and productive relationship with Texas music: Studio C was designed for ZZ Top, which called Ardent Studios home for many years, and Stevie Ray and Jimmy Vaughan recorded Family Style in the famous brick building on Madison Avenue.

The first ‘hounds out of the gate will be Accumulator, scheduled for an April 2014 release. The album will combine cream-of-the-crop tunes the band’s devoted followers pass along to the uninitiated with new, previously-unreleased tracks.
