Veteran singer-songwriter Rick Eakens, a guitarist from Las Cruces, N.M., has led the Footnotes on and off for most of his life, crafting the sound in his head into rootsy rock & roll. With the early Beatles and Buddy Holly as his touchstones, Rick & the Footnotes embody the unpretentious attitude, catchy songcraft, and high-energy abandon of the vintage classics that originally inspired him to make music.
