Black Gold Texas Tea is a side project of a heavier blues & beats and of original instrumental material. Influences are Ry Cooder’s Paris Texas Soundtrack, ZZ Top and acoustic folk blues of Lightning Hopkins and Lil Son Jackson. I grew up on Australian rock of AC/DC, Cold Chisel and Midnight Oil and later discovered Led Zeppelin and the infamous guitar encyclopedia of Jimmy Page. Black Gold Texas Tea gives me a chance to explore those influences but with the same guitar techniques as my acoustic folk style.
