Singer and songwriter Monte Warden has enjoyed many lives in the music biz: teenage rockabilly with Whoa! Trigger, country traditionalist with the Wagoneers, Buddy Holly-meets-Hank Williams roots rocker in his solo career, and million-selling songwriter for country acts like Patty Loveless, Travis Tritt and, as required by law for Lone Star tunesmiths, George Strait. The Austinite’s latest incarnation with the Dangerous Few may be his most ambitious: reimagining the style(s) of pre-rock pop music through the lens of a Texas native, dubbed the “Great Americana Songbook” by the wags at Paste. Boasting a self-titled debut of timeless originals co-produced by Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, U2, Bowie), Warden and the Few hold down every third Thursday at Parker Jazz, bringing a salt-of-the-earth sensibility to the Songbook atmosphere.
