Music News - Announcing 'Texasman' from Sig Wilder & Friends

Announcing 'Texasman' from Sig Wilder & Friends

01 November 2023 - 0 Comments

Texasman is about the past - about youth and its tendency to slip away. The song concerns the time Sig Wilder lived in Austin with an indie pop band. They were living far away from home with big plans and dreams. The Texas man in the song is the one and only Willie Nelson, who embodies the spirit and legacy of Texas music.

Sig Wilder’s expression of yearning for recognition and the spotlight, juxtaposed with their current state, feeling like they're still in 'some dull shade of green.’

Texasman weaves a fill-in-the-blanks story with evocative lyrics that mirror the artist's journey through the ups and downs of life away from home and the aspirations to follow. The chorus, infused with an unforgettable melody, serves as an alt-country gem that invites listeners to reflect on their own aspirations, their own 'Texasman,' and the indelible marks left by youthful dreams and the passage of time.

“Texasman
Texasman
I’m looking up at your highlights
down here pining the spotlight
truth is love
the truth is on the other side
I still can’t reach
still some dull shade of green”

- Excerpt from Texasman

Texasman’s initial pulse engages the ear, opening quickly to a timeless acoustic guitar sound. Then Sig Wilder’s voice kicks in with supple rasp rupturing the barrier between artist and audience. It continues in waves of emotive dynamics, swelling between the verse and chorus like magic. It leaves you needing the next phase.

Tune in to the alt-country sound that's as comforting as a front porch swing and as moving as a lullaby from a country music great! Indulge in the perfect blend of twangy guitars, melancholic lyrics, and a handful of nostalgia that defines the alt-country genre.

“The band’s most recent release, “Light Tower,” encapsulates a dreamy and warm sound that soothes the restless heart.” - Happy Mag


“Light Tower” is a testament to Sig Wilder & Friends’ ability to capture the essence of human emotions and weave them into an unforgettable musical experience.”
