Our Religion sees much motivation in its Tx origins, and singer/songwriter Ric Swanson infuses the band’s tunes with this, producing a rich design of Americana music deeply rooted within the Lonestar Condition. Swanson and guitarist Chris Watkins 1st began producing music collectively in the first ’80s, playing in professional pop/rock and roll bands such as for example Nightwork, with whom they released an recording in 1986. Alongside twin brothers Jeff and Jerry Doyle, Swanson and Watkins ultimately moved from their pop/rock and roll past and created Our Religious beliefs, an Americana-style music group with a origins rock and roll/folk advantage to it. The Tx natives found motivation within their homeland in addition to Tx songwriters like Man Clark, Townes Vehicle Zandt, Tremble Russell, and Lyle Lovett, not forgetting famous songwriters like Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, and John Cougar Mellencamp. Our Religious beliefs documented its debut recording with Grammy-winning maker Marius Perron and released it individually in January 2001 alone label, Right Monitor Records.
