The Texas music scene is at it again with the release of veteran harmonica sideman turned singer songwriter Jimmy Ruggiere’s debut CD “Nicer Guy”. Under the direction of Chris Gage, producer, engineer and musician extraordinaire at his MoonHouse Studio in Austin, these 10 songs import a fresh, yet occasionally retro energy to a classic genre. The self-penned album of 10, original slice of life stories is hewn from reflections only careful honesty delivers. Each track on “Nicer Guy” manages to capture a bit of genuine soul, humor and truth while introducing surprising twists and insight along the way. Eclectic. Eccentric. Real.
