Join us for free live music brought to you by Big Gus and Swampadelic!
Over a long and varied career, D/FW singer-songwriter Gus Samuelson has come at the music business from various angles: road-managing Merle Haggard, DJ’ing at Dallas’ KHYI 95.3, and perhaps most enduringly, hitting a midlife creative Renaissance all his own that’s resulted in a steady stream of compelling original music over the past few years. He’s earned enough industry goodwill to warrant a vanity project, if that’s all he was good for, but instead he’s offered up focused, revealing, and outright enjoyable music over the course of a handful of albums, including 2013’s solo acoustic gem American Soul, one highly danceable album under the Swampadelic band name, and last year’s gripping sort-of-debut under the “Sinner Man” banner.
