Covering – The window -by L. Cohen

Joshua “Tullie” Alford passed away recently. Most of anyone who reads this might know Josh. Maybe not though.
I just wanted to write something here, in the hopes that maybe y’all will find his songs out there on soundcloud or else where. He wrote some great songs and hopefully other people will find them as well.
Joshua used to front a band called High Hawk in Chicago. Later on, we played a good show or two with Joshua and had some fine times hanging out and talking music and dreams. Josh was a natural onstage and a true one of a kind.
Although we never got super close, I knew Josh as a friend and respected him. I was always attracted to his mix of wild, charm, and sincerity. Could see it in his dancing and hear it in his songs. Glad Ryan Boyles introduced us years back. Very sad to hear of his untimely passing.
Here’s to you Joshua. Rest in peace brother. See you on the other side.

Finally getting to do a show with Tess Seipp whose beautiful musical endeavor is called Molybden. Also the 42nd most abundant element in the universe, Molybdenum (the element)
is mined a few hours south of Marfa in Mexico. Molybden (the band) Iives in Austin, but is born of Marfa roots. So there we have it. A return of sorts. A line connecting to it’s starting point. Should be a great night of music and beautiful sunset views. The show is free and starts at 8 pm.
Hope to see some worldly travelers and familiar faces alike.

Also, wanted to make a statement about having to skip out on our Chicago show on the 2nd of January with Judson Claiborne at the Hideout in Chicago.

We were totally bummed to have to cancel that date, but maybe it proved to be a blessing in disguise as we would have pulled into Chicago around the same day as the North Pole did. Or maybe it would have been a blast to be there in the Arctic weather? Hmmm. A bummer in disguise.

Will be back to Chicago in late Feb. early March though. Will keep the page updated!

Well, after this last Christmas holiday super season, we at Hotel Brotherhood just wanted to post a recap/thank you for a couple shows we played between the 28th and New Years Eve.

First off we wanted to say thanks to Sam Walker and his band Trust The Finch, who are making tunes down in Austin by way of West Texas, and also Terra Peters and Hogan Sullivan as well. Was a pleasure to be part of such a cool night of music over at Padre’s on the 28th.

Also, wanted to say a word about New Years Eve. While in Odessa returning a harp with Nicki and hitting a couple thrift stores, we got a call to open that nights New Years Eve show for Jimmie Dale Gilmour and Butch Hancock,… needless to say we didn’t turn that one down. Was a great night complete with Champagne toasts, lots of folks, and Jimmie Dale signing about how that night, he thought he was gonna go downtown.  Also, Colin Gilmour played some great tunes solo and joined everyone on stage throughout the night.  A night to remember for sure. Thanks to Lance and those guys for asking us to open that one up and Colt Miller for laying down the sweet licks with me.IMG_1710

Hotel brotherhood. Nightlands. Saturday Nov. 30 PADRE’S
November 27, 2013, 4:09 pm

Nightlands is the recording project of Philadelphia-based multi-instrumentalist Dave Hartley. The music he creates in his bedroom is itself a bed of delicate, chiming strings and bubbling synths beneath a blanket of choral vocal arrangements. It’s dreamy in the literal sense — the seeds for the album were sown when Hartley began archiving musical ideas that occurred in his sleep with a simple bedside tape recorder. As a result his debut album Forget the Mantra is, in essence, a field recording of Hartley’s dreams — a travel journal through pop music and a collection of psych-hymns from the first human lunar colony. The songs sound both huge and intimate, breathy and cavernous like massive echoes of a faraway concert. It’s the big, shadow music from just across the lake.

Should be a fun night in town come on out to the show.
