Altco Music Teams Up With Tonya Watts, The God Damn Gallows and Shelli Coe

Tonya Watts and Stevie Tombstone, team up for a new single

Altco Recordings is proud to welcome Tonya Watts to our ranks as she teams up with Stevie Tombstone to work on a new single,video and perhaps more. The Americana songstress is also well known as Playboy cover model and actress besides being a quickly rising star on the Alternative Country scene. Tombstone has been working to produce a series of singles for Altco showcasing new and seasoned talent that have his fingerprint and trademark on "legitimate tunes that don't bend to corporate ears". "Tonya has a one of a kind voice, point of view and her lyrics are about as honest as you can get"

A few words from the LA Weekly: "Watts has enjoyed an extraordinary career. "From professional acting and modeling jobs (she was Pam Anderson’s Baywatch body double, played Dolly Parton in Get to the Heart; the Barbara Mandrell Story) to her ceaseless work as outspoken social crusader (her ongoing efforts to assist Nashville’s homeless riled up a horde of Music City cops and politicians), Watt’s passion and drive are unrivaled. It is her music though, where this extraordinary woman really excels."

The God Damn Gallows bring the ruckus to every stage they approach

More great news as we are also excited to add the gypsy-punk sounds of The Goddamn Gallows to our digital roster courtesy of Farmageddon Records. The first offering will be the Swappin Spit EP which also features our very own Black Eyed Vermillion (whose Pleasure Tide release just hit the interwebs). Be sure to stay tuned as we add their back catalog to our digital store as well as making it available worldwide in MP3. Keep on the lookout for this release early Fall. Welcome aboard fellas!

Shelli Coe and David Allen Coe

The Rhinestone Princess Shelli Coe will celebrate her re release of A Girl Like Me"by ALTCO recordings. This project is the real deal and we look forward to the success of the first single Truly penned by none other than Mr Billy Dee. This is classic Texas Honky Tonk and is not to be missed or over looked. Shelli shows off her chops on this gem as a singer and accomplished songwriter! Look out for this next week on Itunes.
