Cowboy Mouth is New Orleans rock n' roll. Annually presenting roughly 150 shows, releasing nearly a dozen records, and featured on TV shows and radio stations everywhere, Cowboy Mouth has been seen and heard by millions of fans worldwide. For more than 15 years, the members of Cowboy Mouth have preached and shouted at the top of their lungs the joys of being alive and the joys of being in and from New Orleans, sharing a slice of Mardi Gras heaven with fans around the world. As frontman Fred LeBlanc has said,"If The Neville Brothers and The Clash had a baby, it would be Cowboy Mouth."
The band's 11 album releases include two records on MCA, one on Atlantic and several on their own Cowboy Mouth Records label. So far, the band has enjoyed domestic sales of over 500,000 units. But the album sales pale in comparison to the number of tickets the band sells to their live events. Cowboy Mouth shows are legendary, and have been witnessed by more than 9 million fans to date. Always on the road, they've toured several times with their friends in Hootie and the Blowfish, BareNaked Ladies, Sister Hazel and Better Then Ezra as well as other well known supporting acts.
Crowd participation is a must at a Cowboy Mouth show. Led by Fred's larger-than-life presence, the band's performances are high-energy and extraordinarily intense, usually leaving audiences as drenched and spent as the band. Cowboy Mouth fans range from ages five to age eighty-five, but they have one thing in common - as Fred confides to the audience, "Cowboy Mouth is about pretending that you're five years old, naked as a jaybird and about to turn the hose on your parents, and there's not a damn thing they can do about it."
A Cowboy Mouth show is always full of surprises, and have included guest appearances by Harry Shearer, Steve Van Zandt, Rob Thomas , John Popper, Art Neville, Johnnie Johnson (Chuck Berry's piano player), Kyle Turley, and Tom Arnold (Best Damn Sports Show), to name a few. Their audience stretches from the festivals and colleges to the clubs and theaters they headline around the country.
The band has also made several film and television appearances, including the Steven Soderburgh film "The Underneath," MTV and VH1, Live with Regis and Kelly, Ellen DeGeneres Show, and The Late Show with Craig Kilborn.
The band is led by Fred LeBlanc, Cowboy Mouth's maniacal drummer/lead Singer (think the Tasmanian Devil playing drums like Keith Moon with a voice like Bo Diddley) and John Thomas Griffith on lead vocals and lead guitar. Fred came to Cowboy Mouth after four years with the southern punk band Dash Rip Rock. Also an accomplished producer, Fred mixed the band's first two studio recordings and also earned a gold record for producing Deadeye Dick hit song from the movie Dumb And Dumber, "New Age Girl." Griffith, (the Griff) had been friends with Fred for years before the two talked about forming Cowboy Mouth together along with two local New Orleans musicians. As the lead singer of the the Red Rockers, Griff had a top-selling album on Columbia Records. Their hit song "China" was one of the first hits on MTV, and is still played on the radio today. Griff has opened on tour with bands like The Go-Gos and U2, and was recently inducted into the Texas Guitar Players' Hall of Fame.
Bassist Casandra Faulconer has been one of the most sought after bass players in New Orleans. Offbeat magazine nominated her as one of New Orleans best bass players and she has performed on stage with Dr. John, Debbie Davies, Papa Mali, Cyril Neville among others.
The band's rhythm guitarist Matt Jones was a member of Jimmie's Chicken Shack for six years(Island Records/Koch Records.) A prodigy guitarist and high school lacrosse star, Matt made guitar his choice at the end of high school and has been on a rock and roll tour ever since.
Recorded in both New Orleans and Los Angeles, their latest album, "This Train ...", was produced and mixed by Cowboy Mouth's front man Fred LeBlanc and it is the first album from the New Orleans rock and roll party kings since 2008. "This Train is an emotional rollercoaster ride of an album about Faith: both the loss and the regaining of it," notes LeBlanc. "It is an album that that celebrates the emotionality of life's up's ("This Train", "I Believe", and "(I've Lived) Long Enough") and downs ("Blues At Bay", "Saturday High", and "Drama")."
Weaving a rich and varied tapestry that is ultimately an uplifting, life-¬‐affirming journey with one of America's most powerful live bands, This Train captures all of the raw emotional energy within the heart and soul, passion and enthusiasm of New Orleans flavored rock and roll.
Texez Mudd's 4 primary members formed in 2012 primarily to compose and play original songs. The band now consists of 5 members with the newest additions of James McLester and Wulff Harris. This has added a new dimension to our sound reflected in our newer compositions. The band's influences are mainly classic and southern rock from bands like Eric Clapton, 38-Special, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Jimi Hendricks.
Texez Mudd is currently working on recordings for their first record. The band has performed in prestigious venues including: The House Of Blues, The Hard Rock Cafe, and the Gas Monkey Live. We have also performed at the same event as Derek St. Holmes(guitarist from Ted Nugent), and Troy Luccketta(drummer from Tesla) with compliments from both. It is an exciting time for Texez Mudd and "We continue to till the soil together to create the buds for future fruit"(Texez Mudd 2013).
