Flatland Cavalry is an energetic blend of hillbilly band whose sound and influence can be traced to the vivacity and showmanship of the Turnpike Troubadours, melodic stylings of John Mayer, and songwriting ability of renowned Texas artists such as Randy Rogers and Wade Bowen. T
homas Mooney, Editor-in-chief of New Slang Lbk, a music blog focused on the thriving Lubbock music scene, states,” It’s the closest thing to Turnpike Troubadours in some time. Close your eyes and maybe, you can hear the same wiry twang in Cordero that you heard in Evan Felker years ago. The comparisons don’t end there. There’s the piercing interplay between guitar and fiddle. The honest longing for intimacy, inevitable heartbreak, and the occasional summertime fling that sprinkle their way through songs.” Founded in 2012 by childhood friends and college roommates, Cleto Cordero and Jason Albers, Flatland Cavalry is determined to take the Lubbock music scene (and the state of Texas) by storm with their refreshing original sound.
Within two weeks of releasing their debut EP, Come May (May 2015), the ambitious young band received an offer and signed with the Oak Park, California based booking agency, Atomic Music Group, and joined the roster amongst other great Texas-based musical acts including Ray Wylie Hubbard, Brandon Rhyder, Folk Family Revival, and The Statesboro Revue. It seems the future is bright for the humble five-piece from Lubbock, TX; whose sole mission is to write and play music that’s, “Easy on the ears, Heavy on the heart.”
