Joe Walters aka Texas Joe came to the UK just over 5 years ago to start a record label with Lewis Durham of Kitty, Daisy & Lewis called Evangelist Records. They issued 78's from Blind Boy Paxton, C.W. Stoneking and Pokey LaFarge. A lifelong collector of records he started DJ'ing from his collection of obscure 45's when he moved from Texas to Los Angeles.
From rare to rockabilly to deep country to soul and funk his eclectic mix of tunes had him in high demand in the jumping LA bar scene. These days he's more than likely found in the bar of Texas Joe's Slow Smoked Meats listening contently to his jukebox.
