Texas Hill is the new vocal trio of Craig Wayne Boyd, Adam Wakefield and Casey James. Craig Wayne Boyd offers a voice full of gospel-tinged country smoke, Adam Wakefield blends a rootsy bluegrass-and-Americana rasp, and Casey James wraps it with a blue-eyed soul quality and deft blues guitar chops. The result is a band that’s both rock solid and highly adaptive. Texas Hill is instantly identifiable, thanks to its well-developed signature sound: a proud, in-your-face harmonic wall. Each of the individual Texas Hill members earned a national presence as contestants on TV music competitions – Boyd and Wakefield were both members of Blake Shelton’s team during different seasons of NBC’s The Voice, and James developed a following during the Simon Cowell era of FOX’s American Idol. Texas Hill’s highly anticipated debut album Heaven Down Here was recently released January 21, 2022. Sounds Like Nashville praised the project, “With its real-life-inspired lyricism and multi-genre stylistic influences – which melds soul, R&B, country, southern rock, and even some Memphis blues – Heaven Down Here encapsulates the true spirit of down-home music… an easy-listen and strong appeal to both country and non-country fans.”
