Biography

Gripping vocals, intelligent lyrics, and songs filled with memorable hooks are what you will find with Leaving,TXs debut release, 100 Miles to Sunday. This original alt.country outfit delivers a clever blend of cutting edge twang-rock mixed with a healthy dose of country.

The album is driven by songwriter Chris Pattersons rugged, in your face, vocal style, ripping telecasters and sweet pedal steel all anchored by a tight, driving rhythm section. This powerful group of musicians makes Pattersons songs really shine.

The sound for 100 Miles to Sunday was magically captured by veteran music Producer/Engineer, Paul Grupp (Byrds, Charlie Daniels, Boston, etc.). Grupps influence is quite evident on the album through both the dreamy ballads and the edgy rockers. The CD is destined to be another triumph in the already long list of Grupp successes.

Formed in late 2004 by songwriter Chris Patterson and bassist Garry Cecil, Leaving, TX has rapidly come to life in the Washington, DC music scene. Patterson is a self-taught musician who after leaving the jam-band Grooved Pavement spent the next 18 months studying and writing. During this time he spent many nights on the local singer-songwriter circuit finding out which songs were working with the audience. After a visit to Austin, TX he came back with the desire to finally build the band that would showcase his music.
