My name is Jud Block, and I play a Texas underground style country called "Empty Chamber Music"...doing my damndest to keep the songwriting traditions of Townes Van Zandt, Eric Taylor, Brent Best and Billy Joe Shaver alive. I've shared stages with The Waylors, Eric Taylor, Unknown Hinson, Elizabeth Cook, Tim Carroll, Eddie Spaghetti, Hellbound Glory, Izzy Cox, The Pinebox Boys, Bleu Edmondson, Gideon Smith & The Dixie Damned, Bob Wayne, South85, John Howie, Jr., David Childers, Midnight Ghost Train, Joey Allcorn, Brian Burns, SwampdaWamp, Bill Noonan, and Chuck Johnson. My recently released CD, Barroom Gravity, is garnering critical acclaim for its dark humor, literary bent, and brutal honesty. [+]
