DARIUSTX, solo side project of singer/songwriter and composer Darius Holbert, released a brand new album,
DARIUSTX V. The Angels of Goliad on December 11th. His fifth studio project, Holbert produced the seventeen track record which was mixed by Ryan Rees (CeeLo Green, The Ting Tings), and mastered by Adam Boose (Dawes, Conor Oberst, The Velvet Underground).
He shares, "This album showcases some of my best friends and family, who also happen to be some of the top A-list studio talent in LA, including the incredible voices of Nicole Britton and Caroline Wilson. This album trends towards Americana and leans more heavily on my Texas and Louisiana roots.”
