When legendary honky-tonk band Eleven Hundred Springs played its final notes near the end of 2021, it understandably felt like an ending to many of its loyal fans. Over the course of 23 years the group played countless shows around the world, released over a dozen albums, and had become the standard for what a swingin' Texas country band should be. But for lead singer-songwriter Matt Hillyer, the ending of his beloved band wasn't the closing of his own musical road.
Hillyer's life in music began well before Eleven Hundred Springs was born. He honed his chops in the rockabilly outfit Lone Star Trio, and even a rock band, Strap, hitting the stages of Dallas' storied Deep Ellum neighborhood throughout the '90s. In 2014 he released his solo debut album If These Old Bones Could Talk, a stellar effort that served as a reminder to fans that Hillyer had more to say than what could be found on Eleven Hundred Springs releases. With Glorieta, Hillyer doesn't begin a post-1100 life as much as he continues the dance he began decades ago. It's really that simple.
