Town-by-town, and club-by-club Dalton Domino has been burning down Texas with smoldering live shows for several years now. Today the product of the Lubbock music scene released his second album, Corners.

The album kicks off with the futuristic "The River," and then it takes a country-rock turn with "Decent Man." Domino gets introspective with the title track, and pissed off in the album's first radio release, "July." Corners features guest vocals from Jack Ingram ("Corners"), and Charlie Stout ("Sixteen Years")

Dalton runs the musical gambit, but that's nothing new from a man who admittedly has an eclectic taste in music.

A big musical moment for me was in 2003, when I went to a punk show in Las Vegas,” Domino clearly recalls. “New Found Glory and MXPX were playing, which was perfect because I had grown up skateboarding and hearing the live bands at the Van’s Warped Tour. Punk music really was my base, because I loved the freedom of the lyrics. The songs dealt with the stuff that was relevant to me. The older I’ve become, the more I’ve enjoyed that same freedom I see in the writing of so many great Texas and Red Dirt artists. The feeling I get from great lyrics is what will has always stuck out to me.”

So, what else do you need to know about the guy everybody won’t stop talking about?
