Before this South Texas ensemble of sin known as Black TarPoon decided to start on a music project that would be different then any project they had ever done before, they made their way to a place the locals called the "neither here nor there", "betwixt and between", to meet a man who is said to have dressed in black, whom some call the Devil but others call the demon Mephistopheles, and made a deal with this well dressed man at the darkest of crossroads... They left the path of what they knew to start forging their way through the roots... The roots of Americana music that is. Their distinctive sound is a blend of delta blues, outlaw country, and folk with a hillbilly punk twist. Their lyrics have a horror movie essence, they are dark yet soulful, loving yet hateful and tell the stories that few would tell yet all can identify with. Black TarPoon's music can be best described as hillbilly blues inspired horror folk fused with murder country while keeping a punk rock mentality. This soulful ensemble of sinners will soon be slashing their way into your hearts with a Texas chainsaw massacre edge!
