Longtime Texas singer-songwriter Connie Mims displays her impressive pop/rock chops on her first solo album since 1983.

Mims wowed audiences throughout the 1970s as a member of such seminal Lone Star State bands as the acoustic Wheatfield and the electrified St. Elmo’s Fire. Both groups enjoyed broad exposure through extensive American touring, highlighted by gigs at L.A.’s Troubadour and performances on the PBS series Austin City Limits. But neither ever achieved the success of other country crossover groups of the time like the Eagles and Poco.

A smooth blend of pop/rock with a light country groove. With help from legendary Texas keyboardist Riley Osbourne, Mims serves up ten songs, mostly self-composed, that range from bluesy ballad “That’s the Way My Love Is” to the high-energy rock of “Anywhere My Heart Goes” to the ethereal, Joni Mitchell-inspired title track, “Go Deep”. For Mims, accessibility matters most in modern music. “I wanted to produce memorable songs that people didn’t have to struggle to understand,” she says. “I just want them to be able to sing along”.

Even if you missed her at the Kerrville Folk Festival and other venues around the Southwest, you might have heard her singing the praises of Blue Bell Ice Cream in the company’s classic commercials.
