    Michael O'Connor with Jack Saunders (CD Release Party)

    Anderson Fair presents Michael O'Connor with Jack Saunders. 

    Having played countless gigs on acoustic and electric guitars and mandolin with bands of all styles –Michael O'Connor’s (pictured) songwriting reflects his cross influences as he incorporates blues, country, folk and rock into a sound uniquely his own. Some of his influences include BB King, Robert Johnson, John Hiatt & Lucinda Williams. Prominent in clubs and song swaps in the Texas hill country, Michael’s performances have also included numerous radio broadcasts as well as appearances on HumbleTime Radio Show, where he was recognized at the 1999 Annual Humbie Awards.

    Jack Saunders has been part of the Texas music scene since his arrival in the Lone Star State during the late 1970s. Born in Southern California and raised in a military family, Jack lived in a number of different states-from Rhode Island to Alaska. While taking a break from the frozen north, he ventured to Dallas, where he was impressed by Texas music.

    In 1982, Shake Russell, who had just split with his longtime partner, Dana Cooper, offered Jack a position playing bass and guitar in his band. The band, which changed personnel many times, lasted 7 years and produced several records. In 1996, Jack and Shake parted ways, and Jack released two CDs while traveling and fronting his own band.

    Since then, Jack has been very busy as a producer and engineer in his Houston recording studio, White Cat. Most recently, he has been dividing his time between producing artists in the studio and playing his own shows, along with backing up his singer-songwriter friends-Ray Hubbard, Susan Gibson, Greg Trooper, Randy Weeks, and Hayes Carll, to name a few. Jack continues to have fun with a variety of different projects, including his own. "Living for the Sunshine."
