Eddie Heinzelman has made a major footprint on the country music landscape as an in-demand session musician/sideman--he's currently playing guitar on tour for Radney Foster. However, he's also imprinting in an even more impactful way as a solo artist with the release of his sophomore album, Wherever You Go.

The new album follows Heinzelman's 2017 debut, Hey Songwriter, and offers up an infectious mix of Americana, country, roots rock, and classic jams. The songs on Wherever You Go are brimming with a specific, inimitable personality. A full nine of the 10 songs are solely composed by Heinzelman; the title track is co-written with Radney Foster. Tunes such as "Dammit, Mary"--an ode to one of Heinzelman's favorite songwriters, Mary Gauthier ("her songs are so good they make me cuss")--and "The Road," a touring artist's love letter to his wife, show the range of depth his songwriting can travel. Heinzelman, of course, adds a generous helping of his own instrumental prowess and signature blazing guitar to the record, and he recently has developed two custom signature guitar effects pedals, designed in conjunction with Robert Keeley and Keeley Electronics, called the Verb O Trem and Verb O Trem Workstation.

"Music is how I communicate with the world,” Heinzelman says. “I’ll leave behind two things when I die: my family and my songs. I want my songs to say something, to give people an insight into who I am, and to hopefully touch people in some way."

His extensive resume includes performing with a literal "Who's Who" of Country, Bluegrass, and Americana artists, including: Radney Foster, Darius Rucker, Kelly Willis, Ricky Skaggs, Jack Ingram, Mary Gauthier, Darden Smith, Julie Roberts, Vince Gill, Deana Carter, Darryl Worley, Gene Watson, Jeannie Seely, Collin Raye, T. Graham Brown, Jimmy Fortune, Moe Pitney, John Berry, Ty Herndon, and many more!

"The Marfa Lights offer a timeless sound with equal measures of polished and grittiness to their music. Its authentic, with Heartbreakers style guitar hooks and noteworthy lyrics and melodies, The Marfa Lights have put their own twist on classic sounds."

Originally both from neighboring small towns in North Texas, the musical collaboration of these two come as no surprise when you uncover their particularly unique lineage. Sprouting from families of musicians who also played music together, Scribner and McBroom seemed to be destined from the beginning to join forces and create music together.

Now in their early 20s, the duo has been making music together in the form of, writing, playing, and producing since they were in middle school. Originally collaborating casually, these two ended up working together so much they had no choice but to start a band. At the core of the project, Levi Scribner and Reed McBroom set out a clear mantra by focusing their energies on making songs that merge country-tinged vocal harmonies with hard-rock guitars and catchy melodies that are are clear representation of their southern roots.

The Marfa Lights debut album, "Open Road", is now available on all digital media outlets.
