The 1995 Grammy Award winning (for best country performance by a duo or group with vocal) Mavericks officially started in 1989, in Miami, Florida.

Raul Malo was a singer and a songwriter and Reynolds played the bass. They added drummer Paul Deakin and guitarist Ben Peeler to the mix by the late 80′s and began to play Read the rest of this entry »

The Mavericks were founded in 1989 in Miami Florida. Since cover tunes were all that was wanted in country type clubs, the Mavericks started playing in rock clubs and writing their own material.
In 1991, their debut album, The Mavericks, was released. Raul Malo, lead vocalist and guitarist, wrote all the material for this first recorded album. “This Broken Heart”, was the only single released from this album, and sadly, it never made the charts.

The Mavericks no longer play together, but their influence on the music world is far from over. Frontman Raul Malo, in particular, has continued to work on his craft since the bands breakup, recently releasing Sinners and Saints, a solo work to continue a string of successful albums, to the delight of fans who can never get enough of Malo’s inimitable sound.With arguably even more twang than on previous recordings, Sinners & Saints proudly lets it downhome roots shine through. Recorded in Austin, Texas, featuring contributions from many veterans of the South Texas music scene, the album does not try to hide the influence the area has on the music, blended flawlessly with Malo’s traditional Nashville stylings, rather embracing the eclectic combination.An all-around well balanced mix between original songs and personally crafted covers, the 9 track release is sure to entertain not only original Mavericks fans, but new followers in the post-Mavericks era and genuine music lovers far and wide. Not specifically catering to audiences of old, the upbeat backdrop of musical instruments will, however, clearly will remind listeners of the Mavericks glory days. Read the rest of this entry »
