Heartbreak Hangover 

Performed and recorded at Stay Gold in Austin, TX 


Josh Googins’ guitar playing and songwriting reflects the blues history of his home town of Austin, TX. After over a decade of songwriting and band direction, including his own project,  "Cause In Effect" (produced by Frenchie Smith at The Bubble recording studios in 2012), Googins is gearing up to release his debut album titled after the seventh track on the record, 'Reason To Pretend. Initially recorded at Electric Deluxe studios, Googins and his band finished up at Bud's recording studios in Austin, TX with Sam Patlove.


There sure is a reason to pretend that this upcoming album will stand the test of time with an all star list of musicians such as White Dog drummer, John Amoss and Band Of Heathen's bassist Jesse Wilson holding down the solid, yet organic foundation for a wide range of Western folk, Texas blues, and psychadelic-rock & roll.
