Some people just don't know when to quit -- and for that, HPPR is thankful. With more than 100 head of grass-fed cattle on his family farm in Buffalo, Missouri, you'd think Lyal Strickland wouldn't be tooling around the country with his guitar. However, you'd be incorrect. This guy loves pushing the logical boundaries of how much HARD WORK a human can handle, and then handle it all, he does. Currently touring for his 8th album, Preservation , Lyal stopped into the HPPR studio in Amarillo to...

Called “the best kind of singer-songwriter” by the Dallas Observer, Vanessa Peters has played more than 1,100 shows in 11 countries and has independently released ten critically acclaimed albums. She tours the US and much of Europe, where she has a strong fan base thanks to the albums she made with her former Italian band, Ice Cream on Mondays. (It's because in Italy, all the gelaterias are closed on Monday -- and Vanessa struggled. Oh, she struggled.) But she's back in the states now ,...

High Plains Morning was recently haunted by the living ghost of Gabrielle Louise , who was traveling through Amarillo while touring for her recent full-length album release, If the Static Clears . With funds generated directly from her fan base, Gabrielle put this record together with passion and care. It just came out Friday, so we're thrilled she was able to stop in and talk about her songs, storytelling, balancing our inhalation of tropes vs. the exhalation of individual purpose, and two...

Who are THOSE GUYS? Now that’s a question this trio of seasoned musicians has heard more than a few times. Perhaps because they choose to duck out of Amarillo’s acoustic live music venues. “We know most of the local working musicians,” the trio says. “We don’t need to take gigs that could be theirs.” Rather, they stick to playing events, benefits, gatherings of friends and family, and their monthly residence at area assisted living centers. “We’re one of Amarillo’s best kept musical secrets,”...
