Joe Ely

Lubbock-born guitarist and songwriter Joe Ely is all over the place, in terms of his musical style(s) and his poetic vision expressed in song. The cowboy rock ‘n’ roller is active in the alt-country band The Flatlanders, which also features Texas country dignitaries Butch Hancock and Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and, in the past, has worked with such divergent acts as The Clash, Los Super Seven and Bruce Springsteen. Ely even took a jaunt into experimental electronic territory, as heard on 2014’s B4 84, an album made on the Apple II computer and recorded more than a decade before the idea of personal computers really took off. But it is his solo country efforts that really showcase Ely’s prowess and cement his place as a Texas music icon. His most recent output, 2015’s Panhandle Rambler, is as perfect a collection of reflective, West Texas country music as you’re ever likely to find.
