With a blend of smooth country notes brightly complemented with a commanding and room- filling power, the voice of Austin, Texas' very own Abraham Weaver* Born and raised in South Texas, Abraham made his way to Austin, Texas after a run in the South and East Texas music circuits. Early in his career Abraham had the opportunity of opening for some of the top 90’s acts such as Perfect Stranger, Eddy Raven, Tracy Lawrence, Johnny Rodriguez, Hank Williams III, Hal Ketchum, Ty Herndon, Doug Supernaw, Daryle Singletary, Rhett Akins, Kenny Chesney, Rick Trevino and many others. Abraham played honky tonks, dance halls, fairs, tailgates, anywhere he could be seen, and even worked for several years as the lead vocalist for two different house bands in the lower Rio Grande Valley area before taking his talents to Austin and the Central Texas area. In 2010, he took his music to the northeast part of the U.S., to Bangor, PA, as well as countless venues throughout the “Lehigh Valley” in Pennsylvania, only to return back to his home, Austin, in 2014 to continue pursuit of his career in what has been dubbed the “Live Music Capital of the World.” Abraham’s vocal styles and influences come from a wide range of artists from country through the 80’s rock genres, but two artists would give him what he needed to create his very own vocal style. “In April of 1990, I heard a song come on the radio and decided that country music was what I was going to do,” explained Weaver. The song was “The Dance” by the incomparable Garth Brooks. "Shortly thereafter, I heard a voice in a song that would change my life,” Abraham recalls. “Buscando Una Estrella” was the song, and Rick Orozco was the singer/ songwriter. "Never had I heard such emotion that could bring me to tears!” Abraham decided that was what he wanted to do, saying “I want to make people laugh, I want to make them angry, I want to bring people to tears and I want to make them get up and dance!” And so his journey began. Rick Orozco was a pivotal change in his musical outlook. Weaver recalls “he taught me how to feel and convey the words through my heart, taking a song and placing myself in the song... becoming the song.” Over the last year moving back to Austin, Abraham has made his mark on the industry by becoming one of the area’s most sought out musicians. Abraham has become a regular on Austin’s famous 6th Street in addition to performing at events and venues of all sizes throughout Central Texas.
