Starting out on bass and moving to guitar, Morlix was playing professionally by his midteens (Peter Case made his stage debut between sets by Morlix’s band). Mastering new sounds and new instruments became a lifelong pursuit when he heard the steel guitar on Bob Dylan’s “Lay Lady Lay. ” He got himself one and then joined a country band to learn how to play it.
In 1991 Morlix moved to Texas, settling into a house outside Austin where he installed his Rootball studio at the end of the 1990s. In addition to offering his production clients a comfortable place to make their records, having the home studio led Morlix to start making albums of his own.
Bellows Falls receives the benefit of all that hard work and experience on Saturday, March 29, at the Windham Ballroom.
