“The way people come into your life when you need them, it's wonderful and it happens in so many ways. It's like having an angel. Somebody comes along and helps you get right.You see, we are here, as far as I can tell, to help each other; our brothers, our sisters, our friends, our enemies. That is to help each other and not hurt each other. ”
— Stevie Ray Vaughan
Clint & The Cosmic Wake (C&TCW) is a Texas based Southern Rock/Blues band with an eclectic foundation marrying influences like gospel and blues to metal. Clint Echols (vocals, lead guitar) began playing Country music in the ‘90s with seasoned musicians in places like the “Chinkapin” in Uncertain, TX. He has played feverishly since those days, honing his gift and eventually pairing up with rhythm master “Flute Man” Greg McDonald (drums) who started 40 years ago playing in his father’s Country band, drumming between sermons at church. Dan Giddens (bass) spent nearly a decade playing bass guitar in metal bands before adding his dark spice to the crew. April Echols contributes crafty harmonies, rhythm guitar, and writes unhinged lyrics to melodies you cannot fit in a box. The band has a singular style of songwriting showcased alongside Texas blues rock riffs. At a Clint & The Cosmic Wake show you will hear the band seamlessly weave in hypnotic earthy originals while paying tribute to the stylings of Texas greats such as SRV & ZZ TOP.
