The Best International Artist
Biography: Billy Love Lace
Straight out of Southeast Texas, home of the late, great Johnny  Winter, The Lovelace Brothers have released a smokin' new  single, "Leaving," and are readying a U.S. tour for the Summer  of 2017, Billy Lovelace, the group's guitarist-vocalist and  principal songwriter, has announced.  The Lovelace Brothers, who made their mark in Houston's  unsderground blues scene, are truly one of Houston's Best-Kept  Secrets.  "We have our original bassist (Sean Lewis) back, he is  totally the shit!" says Billy Lovelace, whose other band member  is his brother, drummer, Paul Lovelace. "Selling Your Soul at the  Railroad Tracks...the Dark Blues...Delta slide stuff...the real shit," asserts Lovelace. They're once  again primed and ready to "electrify you with their live shows and brand of music, 'Texas Electric  Blues.'  In the mid 1970’s, a young 10-year old named Billy Lovelace started his career and love of music  with, in his words. “A Beat Up Norman Electric”. Playing the guitar was a natural gift and talent  for Billy, one that started him on the path to creating his own sound and gift of performance. Under  the training of historically great artists and the direction of Tower of Power’s own Dick Wilkie, he  soon moved to Los Angeles, working in the music industry at recording studios while also  performing with many popular bands, honing his craft and growing his name."We are from a  somewhat of a music-involved family," explains Billy Lovelace. "On my father’s side, my  grandfather owned in the 1950s – 70s KOGT in Orange, Texas. My uncle owned a blues bar in  Austin called Mamma’s Money, which I was told, The Fabulous Thunderbirds played at among  others. I also had a few uncles that were musicians. On mamma’s side there were some gospel &  bluegrass groups. If I wasn’t in the music business, I would probably have been a chef or in the  fishing and boating business. But that’s another story."  Upon moving back to Houston in 1987, Billy teamed with brother Paul in Houston-based bands,  Symon Bar Sinister and Think Tank, the latter band achieving some big-time prominence in  Houston, with Music News writing, "Think Tank is a Texas blues-rock band in the style of Stevie  Ray Vaughan-meets-Jimi Hendrix. In fact, they played a couple of tunes by both artists that  would've made 'ol Jimi and Stevie proud." From there, Think Tank morphed into what is today the  Lovelace Brothers with fellow Houstonians, brother Paul Lovelace on drums and Sean Lewis on  bass.   In/around 1998, Billy was shot by an unknown assailant. At the time he was guitarist and principal  songwriter for the group Free Radicals, which won two awards - "Best Jazz Group" and "Best  Unsigned Band" - at that year's Houston Press Music Awards. A song from the Free Radicals album  written by Lovelace, "School of the Americans," was used in the 2000 crime-drama motion picture,  Cement. Billy also became Chief Audio Engineer and Teacher at Texas Recording Studios in 2000.   Now, it's the start of a whole new beginning for The Lovelace Brothers.  "We just released “Leaving” an original, & “Come On” by New Orleans blues great Earl King. The next songs to be released will be another original, & “Going Down” by Freddie King. And then, the sky's the limit!
