When Grammy winner Dave Alvin and Grammy nominee Jimmie Dale Gilmore made the album Downey To Lubbock together in 2018, they wrote the title track as a sort of mission statement. “I know someday this old highway’s gonna come to an end,” Alvin sings near the song’s conclusion. Gilmore answers: “But I know when it does you’re going to be my friend.” 

Six years later, they’re serving notice that the old highway hasn’t ended yet. “We’re still standing, no matter what you might hear,” they sing on “We’re Still Here,” the final track to their new album TexicaliTexicali continues to bridge the distance between the two troubadours’ respective home bases of California (Alvin) and Texas (Gilmore). 

The album’s geographic theme reflects Alvin’s repeated journeys to record in Central Texas with Gilmore and the Austin-based backing band that has toured with the duo for the past few years. The 11 songs on Texicali also connect the duo’s shared fondness for a broad range of American 

music forms. On their own, both have been prominent artists for decades. A philosophical songwriter with a captivating, almost mystical voice, Gilmore co-founded influential Lubbock group the Flatlanders in the early 1970s. Alvin first drew attention as a firebrand guitarist and budding young songwriter with Los Angeles roots-rockers the Blasters in the early 1980s.

Hailing from Santa Cruz, CA, Poi Rogers performs a mix of original and vintage country & western swing, Hawaiian steel guitar ballads and cowboy tunes. Poi Rogers features Gerard Egan on his handmade acoustic guitar & 1954 Fender triple neck steel with Carolyn Sills on standup bass, their timeless harmonies anchoring the show.  The duo, who also front the award winning band, The Carolyn Sills Combo, plan to release their debut album in 2024.
