Hogan Sullivan drove to Austin from Terlingua,Texas 3 years ago to make Cactus-Jazz and Desert-Punktry. Sullivan has teamed up with another Terlinguan turned Austinite, William Blackstock to deliver on those brands. Together they employ half the musical workforce in Austin as the backing band "Solitarios".

Tracks such as, "The Attention" with it's barbed "Cactus-Jazz" stylings, "Angeline" as a heartbreaking tale of birth and death in the Chihuahuan desert (that Sullivan and Blackstock call home) and the shimmering but haunting "Aphrodite", are staples of the Sullivan's writing style which dances through time changes, and turn on a dime arrangements. Hard earned grace and tenacity run like steel wires through the heart of these tunes though, which show a fundamental dedication to song-writing craft (which Sullivan helms) and attention to arrangement (which Blackstock applies to the tunes).

The singularity and solitude that informs these tunes is apparent upon both initial listening and under close examination of the tunes. Take some time to do both and catch Hogan Sullivan and Will Blackstock deliver on some musical branding that could only come from Far West Texas.
