Kinky Friedman

In working with superstar producer, multi-instrumentalist, and 3-time Grammy winner Larry Campbell, Kinky Friedman has finally found the perfect compliment to his jagged edge Texas Hill Country persona. Together with fellow 3-time Grammy winning engineer Justin Guip, they have produced perhaps the crowning achievement of the Kinkster's career, Resurrection (Echo Hill Records, 2019).

With eleven new tunes, four of which were co-written by up-and-comer Doc Elliot, and a special guest appearance by long-time Kinky pal and co-conspirator Willie Nelson on the title track. Kinky puts to bed any notion that he is not a first-rate songwriter of the highest order.

Every tune is tailor made for Americana radio; every song a masterpiece of deep reflection and an oven deeper soul. No longer the reckless comic gadfly of his youth, Kinky has found the pathway to the truth that haunts his inner being. Each and every story will continue to haunt listeners and fans long past Kink/s time with us on this planet.

Like his fellow Texas-born songwriters and good pals Billy Joe Shaver and Kris Kristofferson, Kinky speaks to the legends and the myths of the great southwest, but always with an eye to the longings, needs.and hopes of the modern world. His lyrics are universal, yet his vision is completely personal, unique to a man who has led the most special of lives.

Kinky's more soulful music has always been the favorite of the equally soulful, including such luminaries as Nelson Mandela, Joseph Heller, and Bob Dylan. Resurrection will cement Kinky’s place in musical history as one of the all-time greats, with one of the all-time deepest souls to ever pick up a guitar.
