Horse Opera, an original roots music band from Austin TX. Drawing on a wide variety of influences, including a strong respect for the country, bluegrass, and hillbilly music of the 40′s, 50′s, 60′s, and 70′s. Horse Opera was founded in 2006 by Jimmy Deveney, who took the name as a tip of the hat to his love of the old weekly serial cowboy western movies of the 30′s and 40′s. Horse Opera released a debut cd in 2010, “Sounds of the Desert”, went on several national tours, and played the ‘Mirande Festival of Country Music’ in Mirande, France in July 2010. Deveney reformed Horse Opera with an all new line up in 2012, adding Howdy Darrell on acoustic guitar, mandolin, and lead and back up vocals. This not only added Darrell’s songwriting, playing and singing to the mix, it also added harmony as a major component of the band’s sound. Deveney and Darrell then enlisted Heather Rae Johnson on the fiddle and vocals, and former ‘Jesse Dayton’ bassist, Rick Watson, on the upright bass. Horse Opera performs as a 4 piece, sans drums, and a 5 piece when drums are called for. The fantastic Scotti Iman assumes the throne when the need arises. After a successful official showcase at SXSW 2013 in March, and a stellar set at the Viva Big Bend festival in west Texas in July, Horse Opera set out on a 3 week western states tour. The band came home to release their new self titled cd on September 24th, 2013, and played their CD release show, also September 24th, at the world famous Continental club. This show was a dual CD release with Austin favorites BrennenLeigh and Noel McKay, as they release their duet CD ‘Before the World was Made’. Local Cajun fiddle favorites, Gumbo CeSoir opened up the show. The band then embarked on a 3 week east coast run, that included a blistering 3 night stand in NYC. Horse Opera ended 2013 with regional dates around Austin and Texas, and a fantastic appearance on the popular TV show, ‘Songwriters Across Texas’.
