CD Release on Slow Start Records
September 28th, 2019
The High Desert Playboys feature some of the finest country musicians in New Mexico. They are lead by singer/songwriter Clark Andrew Libbey, a touring musician with over 27 years experience. He tours regularly throughout the southwest, Texas, Colorado and California promoting his latest album "From the Deserts of Ohio". He is joined by Ryan Goodhue, a jazz trained pianist from Boston who's honky tonk sensibilities hearken back to the haunting sounds of long gone wild west. Mikey Hale, one of Albuquerque's finest drummers, rounds out the foundation of the band. Recently joined by accomplished pedal steel player Bud Melvin, and violinist Kristen Rad, they have an old school country sound that works for crowds of any age. Since 2016 they have been wandering around New Mexico honky tonks playing dance sets of classic country and original country songs. Join us for some two stepping night out or call us for your next barn dance!
