On her fourth album Love, Guns, and Money,"the music is stellar, the mood shines like the moon. The telepathic brilliance of . . . John Inmon (lead guitar) gleams. Bianca’s voice smolders, hovers, strikes, lies down with you, stands up to you, strokes you, pierces you, and makes the whole recording the strikingly personal experience that it is" - Robert Earl Hardy. The cover "features a photo of her standing in front of a Dutch club’s chalkboard that reads ‘de Texaanse Troubadour Bianca DeLeon.’ she’s much better known in Europe than in Texas. . . . DeLeon is rooted in and lives in two different worlds, the Texas-Mexico borderlands in which she was born and raised, . . . and the national and international singer-songwriter venue circuit, . . . she’s a bit different from your average troubadour. How many of them could write “I Sang Patsy Cline (“the Night Noriega Fell’)?"-3rd Coast Music –John Conquest. Special guest this evening will be Rev. Barry W. Lynn.Hope to see you on today!Kellen
