Austin TX Music Hall of Famer Gurf Morlix Brings CD Release Show to Fort Myers
Veteran roots music producer, songwriter, performer, and Austin Music Hall of Fame inductee Gurf Morlix is touring the country in support of a brand-new release, ‘Impossible Blue.’ He will be in concert at the ACMA Listening Room at All Faiths on Sunday, February 17th.
Film star and writer/director Ethan Hawke, perhaps one of Morlix’s newest and most recognizable fans, remarked about discovering his work. “If you are serious about music, you might want to get serious about Gurf Morlix. Part Alt/Country, part blues, part literature- every one of Gurf’s albums are excellent.” Morlix appeared in and worked with Hawke on the recently released bio-pic, Blaze, a film that tells the sad and poetic tale of Morlix’s best friend, Texas singer-songwriter Blaze Foley, who died an untimely and violent death in the 70s.
Morlix is know for producing albums for roots music luminaries such as Lucinda Williams, Robert Earl Keen, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Slaid Cleaves, and more ‘Impossible Blue’ is Morlix’s 10th studio release of his own music, his previous releases having topped Roots/Americana charts in the US and in Europe.
Peter Blackstock of Austin360 described ‘Impossible Blue’ as “classic Morlix music, a rough mix of blues and folk deeply grounded in the guitar grit that is his trademark.” In an interview with DailyCountry.com, Morlix called the songs on this album, “the best songs I’ve ever written,” Daily Country goes on to say, “Take it as a matter of fact that every word, line, and note has been duly vetted by the toughest critic he’s ever encountered in his 50-odd years of making music: himself.”
ACMA member David Hintz opens the show.David Hintz has been performing and writing songs since the mid 1960’s. For reasons he will never quite understand, he put away pen and guitar for many years until the early 21st century. So after a 25 year hiatus David was coerced into going to an open mic in Fort Myers, FL. Scared to death and being extremely shy he performed a few of his original songs and the world hasn’t been the same since.
His songs are about love found and lost, divorce, peace, politics, religion, equality and rebirth. David writes and performs straight from the heart. Whatever the song topic the message is never sugar coated. He is always working on new material and is currently working on a new collection of original music. David is a local favorite and valued member of the Americana Community Music Association
David has two CD’s RODE HARD AND PUT AWAY WET” 2013, and “OUT WITH A BANG” 2015
