Houston Jones features the mile-a-minute flat-picking of guitarist Glenn Houston, formerly of Hearts on Fire and The Waybacks and the honky-tonk vocals and guitar of Louisiana-born Travis Jones. The singer/songwriter from Davis, California, (known to many as one of the dynamic singers in the NorCal eclectic septet Mumbo Gumbo) blends the two styles in a way that has distanced her from the country mainstream but endeared her to fans of soulful singing. Webster's is an authoritative voice that manages to make existential angst, romantic confusion and spiritual longing sound uncommonly appealing. Each note she sings conveys a probing, acute sensitivity to the little complications of life and love, with a sexy edge to boot -- Webster is a real find, a great singer who has found her voice but not her niche.
The Reverend Billy C. Wirtz's electrifying piano and on-stage antics have amused, confused and amazed audiences across the country. Critics often describe him as a "twisted, musical genius" and his shows as "total anarchy."
