“Julieann is the real deal. She has a long history in the Texas music community as a vocalist and songwriter that’s admired by all who have had the opportunity to hear her. Her fans have hung with her, too. Soulful singing with a heart to match makes for a joyful and entertaining listen”
– Terri Hendrix
“Stray Dogs by the Highway” is the first edition of rich collaborations between poet David Love Lewis, composer/songwriter Alan Dyson, and jazz guitarist/ producer Erich Avinger.
Leaning into the canon of American poetry and music, this work is a well-simmered kinesis of William Faulkner, Allen Ginsberg, Bob Dylan, Randy Newman and Leonard Cohen.
Lewis, Dyson and Avinger are Southern artists motivated by the hypnotic Om of the cicada, the hum of road, and the mantra of familiar hymns permeating the piney woods of East Texas and Northwest Louisiana.
