Something About Me
If I told my whole small life story you would get tired of me real quick. So, I''ll tell you a few things about certain areas of my past. Here goes. I was raised 12 miles outside of Holly Springs Mississippi on a 56-acre farm. Holly Springs is about 40 miles South East of Memphis. We had cows and grew our own food.
After graduation, I moved to Memphis and got a job at a grocery warehouse. I learned about the fast life quickly and knew at an early age I wanted to do something different. In the-mid 80''s I had several jobs, moved to Nebraska for a year then Kansas for 3 years. In my late 20''s I realized I had to get an education, so I went back to school. I was interested in music but knew what the odds were for being successful. So, taking the technical route, I finally got my BS in mid 1998.
Around 1980 I wrote my first song. My friends said it wasn''t that good and it really wasn''t country. I always loved to play the guitar and sing cover songs. In the-mid 1990''s I joined a Memphis band called "Country Comfort." I was the lead singer for about 2 years. We only played cover songs and before that, I wrote several other songs. Using my own material at that time would have been too awkward for me.
I did not feel comfortable singing in front of an audience yet. Even now, it''s a little uncomfortable at first until I can get the crowd into it. My personal life reflects many of my songs yet, some of my songs are only imaginary. I can''t say which ones are and aren''t (I''ll explain more to my fans later).
After getting my masters degree in 1999, I moved from the Memphis area to a small town in Tennessee. I really like the people here and hope the job situation and politics stay under control so I can stay. I love my job and writing songs. We all dream about not having to go to work. If someday I get the opportunity to only write songs and perform, that would be wonderful because, for 41 years I have seen what life is like and what I perceive true friendship and relationships are really about.
I''m keeping my fingers crossed that this CD does well because "Dream" my next CD is already written. I hope you enjoy my CD and if you would like to join my Fan Club please email me at JoeHouckMusic@https://www.tradebit.com.
Thank you for taking the time to read about me and I hope you enjoy the CD "For You"
My album "For You" (below) explains what the songs are about and some of the (possible?) reasons :))
"Sugar Cane" This upbeat blues/southern rockin'' song is hard to listen to sitting down. Boy meets "Sugar Cane" they start seeing each other all the time cause she drives him insane.
"Some Girls" It''s a situation where she is different from the other girls he has known before. She has the power to make him want her by being gone? Great guitar!
"She''s My Baby" This is an up-beat southern rock new country sound about the beauty of a true relationship and how a dream becomes real.
"Gone With the Wind" This is a sad but true ballad relating the story of a mother who has had all she can take and leaves. The father reflects on the past trying to understand why this is happening.
"Outskirts of Town" A guy from the other side of town meets a lady from the elite side of town. They take a chance.
"The Deer Song" There''s a big buck in them woods. Ever see that buck wearing what looks like a rocking chair on his head? Hope you hear it.
"For You" is the title track. This (may be true) song is about a guy who is crazy about a girl that has no interest what so ever for him. She confides in him. Mean while he takes in all her experiences with other guys while hurting in side and finally lets her know how it feels. A lot of us have been in this situation.
"Double Life" A man loves his wife and someone else on the outside more. What really happens after this is on my next album "Dream."
"On The Line" Describes the general situation people get into when they don''t keep a relationship interesting. She doesn''t have to let him know the fire is dimming and he can see it coming but feels his hands are tied and like a nightmare he can''t seem to stop what''s about to happen.
"She''s So Free" is about a couple that''s happy mainly because "She''s so Free" and happy to be who she is. He on the other hand knows he is blessed with her presence. This isn''t just a chick song. I bet that tough guy on the commercial that didn''t watch the movie "You''ve Got Mail" would like this song.
