Texas Renegade - young and restless
Texas Renegade (members: Andy Bertelsen, Eli Carver, Tyson Carver, Matt Pigg, Chris Leonard) formed in 2002 and soon began playing gigs around Wimberley; a lot of high school parties and at Riley’s on the Backbone. The band members met thru mutual friends or attended public school together. After a difference of musical direction, Chris Leonard left the band. Kasey Klepfer’s first guest musician spot with Texas Renegade was at WHS Project Graduation in 2003, but was soon added as a regular.
Texas Renegade recorded their debut CD, 3a.m., at the Zone Recording Studio in Dripping Springs during the late spring and early summer of 2004. 3a.m. was produced by Jason Allen, who won the 2005 MTM Texas Music Award for Producer of the Year for his work.
