“The River Gang was the name, the code name for the DEA files on this little import company. They are the ones that named it and I put it into the song River Gang.” “I was an outlaw in Austin when outlaws were outlawed.” Billy Stoner was born on Lookout Mountain, Tennessee, and he resides there today. As a child, Billy was a member of the Chattanooga Boys Choir in Tennessee. After high school, he learned how to drive a truck and spent time on the road. In the late 1960s, he was a member of Boston band The Family Circus, and in the 1970s Plum Nelly Austin (Texas). He recorded his own musical project in 1980 at Longview Farm in N. Brookfield, Massachusetts, which a friend refers to as the outlaw sessions. All the business he did for almost two decades was to support his music habit. Not long after recording his album, Billy became a member of The Austin Fall Stars, a band based at Big Spring Federal Prison Camp. They performed at community events in West Texas, too. “River Gang” is the first single from Billy Stoner’s upcoming album, The Music Habit (TL-99), which Team Love Records is proud to release later in 2017 as a CD and digital album. It was produced by Billy Stoner, and album credits include executive producer Jack Cheer, engineers Jesse Henderson and Stu Irwin. Players featured on the record are Jemima James and Shenandoah, otherwise known as Arlo Guthrie’s band.
