About

Thrift Store Cowboys is a Lubbock-based sextet, including Daniel Fluitt, Colt Miller, Clint Miller, Cory Ames, Kris Killingsworth, and Amanda Shires on fiddle and vocals, who have been touring together for a decade after meeting at the musical South Plains College. We have self-funded and self-released our previous records -- and for our new album, Light Fighter, produced by Craig Schumacher (Neko Case, Calexico, Iron & Wine) we would like to have a proper shot in the national marketplace -- with marketing, such as radio promotions at non-commercial radio stations, and other campaigns. As well, though we've been touring (in a packed van) for 10 years, we need to tour the east coast, and build a fanbase there. Our hope is to strengthen our fanbase and continue to make records.

We also need to replace copies of our last album, Lay Low By Crawling or Creeping, destroyed when a stranger torched our gear and merchandise-filled trailer parked next to Daniel's bedroom, nearly taking his life. (It has been thought that a homeless man sought shelter in the trailer and accidentally started the fire).
