Four albums (and countless songs written for other artists) into one of country music’s more esteemed careers, country recording artist/songwriter George Ducas continues to evolve. His latest evolution comes in the form of YELLOW ROSE MOTEL, a project that stands as his most comprehensive and cinematic to date. YELLOW ROSE MOTEL comes packed with everything from smash singles that remain true to Ducas’ modern day-roots country hybrid style to completely-off-the-rails story-telling songs that leave a mark on the listener long after they’re heard. The album both firmly reestablishes Ducas’ country roots and secures his status as a highly respected artist in the country music industry.
Born in Texas City, Texas between Houston and Galveston, George Ducas’ family wasn’t a particularly musical one, leaving Ducas to take the reins of his own music education. He did benefit from hearing a steady diet of Willie Nelson and Texas singer-songwriters Jerry Jeff Walker and Guy Clark around the house, and taught himself how to play guitar around the age of 12. He later expanded his learning to both blues and rock.
All together to date, Ducas has been a part of studio albums that have sold more than 20 million copies and even garnered a Grammy nomination. All the while, Ducas maintains that the best part of it all is to tour and perform live – whether it’s back home in Texas, across the US, headlining festivals in Japan, France, Brazil, Switzerland, the UK, or appearing on Nashville’s famed Grand Ole Opry. Of his live show, Ducas says, “I like for the experience to be a non-stop musical journey, of both my own recordings and songwriting hits, both past and present. And I can’t wait to add the songs from YELLOW ROSE MOTEL to my live show.”
