As Greyhounds, guitarist Andrew Trube and keyboardist Anthony Farrell have been making music and touring for nearly 20 years, refining and developing a sound Trube calls “Hall and Oates meet ZZ Top.”
Between Farrell’s old school “SoCal” feel with vocals that would melt the hardest of women, and Trube’s goofy East Texas “slap-a-jank” guitar and vocals, the two have found a groove and a sound that can’t be matched. It’s as if oil and water mixed and had a big ol’ party.
Over the years the duo has written songs that have been recorded and performed live by artists such as Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, and Ruthie Foster, to name a few. Additionally, Trube and Farrell lend their studio production talents to emerging artists in the Austin community and beyond.
When not performing as greyhounds you can catch Trube and Farrell with JJ Grey & MOFRO helping out on keys and guitar.
Influenced by the pillars of Rhythm & Blues like Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Bo Diddley and Ray Charles and inspired by recent artists such as J.D. McPherson, Nathaniel Rateliff and Gary Clark Jr., The 40 Acre Mule – J. Isaiah Evans: Guitar & Vocals, Robert Anderson: Drums, Tim Cooper: Bass, Chris Evetts: Baritone Sax & Percussion, and John Pedigo: Guitar & Vocals – quickly built their own unique sound by blending vintage Rock & Roll, Rhythm & Blues, Soul and just a touch of Country.
