Billy Tulsa & the Psycho Crawdads was our country band that formed out of the ashes of City of Faith. John Knowles, Joey Palmeri, Levell Price and Tony Radford "went country." Joey wasn't feelin' the whole country thing so he bailed and we brought in Nelson Blanton on guitar. The rest is, uh, whatever. This song, Million Miles From Home, was from a demo that was produced by LA country legend Larry Dean and recorded at Sound City [B room]. The vid is a compilation of misc junk put together by a friend of the band.
We played, non stop, all over Southern California for about eight years, and did a few showcase trips to Nashville as well as CO and OK. We played the SoCal country circuit - booked solid - with all-original material, whereas all the other bands were top-40. We signed with an indie label and recorded the album Tennessee Rain in 2000 with producer Dusty Wakeman (download it FREE at billytulsa.com). The label sat on the record, not releasing it, in hopes of selling it [and us] to a major, which didn't happen. They refused to release us from the contract to pursue other options and we ultimately burned out.
Nearly 10 years later, John and Nelson took the album that we wrote and recorded in 2000, reprinted the cover, and are calling it Alvarado - After the smoke clears. The original album can be downloaded FREE at billytulsa.com.
