About Joe Miranda & The Kings Of Texas

Joe Miranda's songwriting style carefully follows his heroes like Jim Morrison, Townes Van Zant, Greg Allman, Sting, Neil Young, Freddie King, and so many other greats who've always looked for the maximum in passion and truth from the heart.
Hi, I'm Joe Miranda, Singer Songwriter guitarist from Texas. I'm so thankful to God to have blessed me with the gift of such a deep appreciation for music, especially the blues
My lineup is basically me and my right hand man who I've played with for many years, "Smokey" Joe Miller from Chicago who played with the original Joe Ely band, Howlin' Wolf & many other greats, we have another great Sax man, Ron Aprea from NY, who is also on this disc. Ian Bailey, one of the greatest Drummers in Texas, is on most of these songs, and other great bass players beside Tommy Shannon who's all over the place on my tunes; Omar Vallejo, Notien Verwenza, Raven Leo. The great Riley Osbourne on keys. Our Houston chapter of players includes, Jody Perez, Rich Segura, Jacob Whooly, Adam Johnson, Willie McGowen
. I've played with Hundreds of great. awesome players in Texas, the South, California to NY, and the Gulf Coast, even a bit in Europe, in my life. And they are all Kings, (and Queens) every one. That's why my band's called the Kings Of Texas. I'm just the guitar player, LOL.
I'm a songwriter who never compromises in the studio or with my pen to find the most unbridled passion in every song. On stage, I love to let the guitar talk , moan or scream and never hold back, like I've learned from Albert Collins, Stevie, Freddie King, Buddy Guy, - so many great players, and I've done my best on this project to show and deliver just that.

Hello All my friends, fans who follow my tunes, fellow musicians, and music lovers who I care for so dearly!
We've been with you here on N1M for 2 and a half years now, and it's been wonderful to say the very least. I have something important to say because I need to honor the memory of my right hand man and Saxophone player,, Smokey Joe Miller. who passed away in August of last year. Of course, I've been devastated over his loss but I feel his spirit very strong, and music is incredible in its power to transform emotions to a joyous state within its own realm. I know excellent Sax players I can continue with, so we'll continue on with great new songs already in the process of being recorded which we'll have out soon
However, I want to talk a little about Smokey so all you my friends can know about this guy's great talent and story. He was from Chicago and grew up right there where all the great blues music took shape in the 50's and 60's with Muddy Waters, Little Waler Jacobs, Willie Dixon. He Played with Howlin' Wolf, and is on Wolf's "London Sessions" album. He plays on most of my songs we recorded, here available for you to hear on this site where we also have songs with Bobby Keys, Rocky Morales, & San Antonio's West Side Horns. Tommy Shannon, Rocky Hill, Tommy Dar Dar, Many others. All of them Kings.... Some really great company.
So rest in Peace my brother, we'll see you on the other side. Clipped on this message is a song we wrote together, Sweatin'Bullits and a photo from one of our last recent gigs. But please keep coming back and you can hear him on all my other songs that don't have a different player like Bobby Keys mentioned. Smokey also played flute on PTSD Blues.
Meanwhile, please stay tuned. We have a lot of really hot tunes on the way I've written specifically for you guys here on the web that I'm sure you're going to like!
Peace, Good Muisc, Joy, and a Whole lot of Love to everyone for 2020!
Your friend,
Joe Miranda

For proof my life's been blessed, I got to play & record with Bobby Keys, man!! ...I was playing with Rex Ludwick, who played w/ Willie, and used to play with Bobby Keys in the 60's with Leon Russell & Jerry Williams out of Fort Worth. We'd just scheduled the session and Rexxy knew he wasn't busy, got a hold of him sent Bobby our pre-production tracks... For only a grand he agreed to fly down from Nashville, and we had a blast! These were my original first take solo tracks. I kept them because we weren't just Jammin, we were duelin! You can hear Bobby Snatch away the solo from me at the beginning, and then the middle of the song, just like playing at a Texas roadhouse on a Saturday night! Also Check out Bobby playing the big fat bass Baritone throughout the song, as well as cool cat DJ T-Bone with the hip record scratches, LOL!!.
This was early, like January 2004. Just a month later he got a call from the Rolling Stones to go away to play their 40 Licks Tour, and the rest AGAIN, is history, baby!!!

Hello All my dear friends and beloved fans,
Just want to let you all know I just uploaded a few songs I recorded years back but are new to the postings here. I finally got the licensing squared up & paid on them as they are all 3 cover songs by Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf, and Shuggie Otis.
I have great artists included w/ me on these cuts. On Gypsy Woman, Stevie Ray Vaughan's great Bass player Tommy Shannon, also the West Side Horns from San Antonio, Bobby Keys on Sax, and the great Tommy Dar Dar on Harp.
On Country Sugar Mama, Tommy Shannon, The West Side Horns, and on Signifyin' Monkey, The West Side Horns and the great Paul Orta on Harp.
Also I'm going into the studio very soon to produce a whole lot more original songs I can't wait to get out there!
Thanks so much, and God bless you for keeping up with me.
All the love, Always,
Joe Miranda & The Kings Of Texas

Hello Friends,
I just wanted to thank everyone on N1M who's given us a listen, and even more, for being a subscriber to my band, the Kings Of Texas. I've had the great fortune of playing with greats from my state, so they are the Kings, not me. I'm just a song writing guitar player who loves the blues and rockin' Texas style.
Attached is a song I wrote some years back that's been getting some attention from a movie producer, and I just wanted to ask if anyone cares to wish me a little luck, maybe say a quick prayer it can take a hold. The theme of the song, Sweatin' Bullets, is about overcoming love gone wrong, and not wanting to be fooled and lied to anymore. A hell of a spot to be in, trying to encourage those who want to do better.
Thanks so much for taking the moment! I appreciate you all so much!
Joe Miranda

My buddy Charlie Machado rebuilt the motor on my '72 Shovelhead, Ported out the heads like a drag racer and installed Pan Head pipes! That's right, a Shovel w/ Pan head pipes More torque, more muscle, LOL.. Growls so beautifully, she's on this recording. Runs great to this day. I wrote this song in tribute to Stevie Ray, who used to call his main guitar "First Wife.", Like many bikers I know, and how they feel about their Scooters! Just a lotta love, baby. Smokey Joe on Sax. Double drums, Riley Osbourne on Keys, Tommy Shannon on Bass. Stuart Sullivan mixed.
