Darryl Lee Rush hails from Markham, a small farming town in South Central Texas. His roots are proudly referenced in his second recording effort entitled Live From The River Road Icehouse. As one might assume, this is a live album that was recorded at the River Road Icehouse, in New Braunfels, Texas. However, in addition to the live performances, there are two studio recordings that bookend the project, which are absolutely worth listening to as well.
Rush has an energetic, engaging performing style that is rather evident on this album. His simple, but interesting, songs and his amusing storytelling ability that is reminiscent of a southern Garrison Keillor or a fast talking Forrest Gump, as can be heard on “Town Too Tough To Die”, makes this recording a worthwhile album to add to your music collection.
