Sounds from the hill country
Each preorder comes with a free digital download!
Despite the distance that grows over the years between you and your family, your creator, your surroundings and your dreams, there is still beauty. This album is the journey to discover whether that gap should be filled, forgotten, or reframed in a new light. Despite the Distance recalls life in your twenties which leaves you strangely hopeful, even if simply for the fact that you’re lucky to still be alive.

Amado Gonzalez (a-mä-dō) is an old soul who reached the end of his rope sooner than expected. In the span of a few years he left town for his mental health, ended faulty relationships, and got fired from a job promising more than it could deliver.
Feeling too young to be wise, yet too old to be reckless, he opted for travel which took him over 33,000 miles. Those memories filled a hefty suitcase of stories to share.
Now calling San Marcos, TX home, he’s established himself as a songwriting local. Amado’s music stands on the shoulders of the Texas hill country, blending americana textures with the “take it or leave it” attitude of punk rock.
Anyone who listens can hear his songs sneak through the cracks of their window as they drive. They swell from the holes in the heart and snapshot the most impressionable moments.
