Lubbock Legend D.G. Flewellyn

Lubbock singer-songwriter D.G. Flewellyn has earned respect from the city’s working musicians and enjoys an ever-increasing fan base.

Flewellyn has recorded and released four CDs – Comin’ Home, Nuclear Cookin’, House of Doom, and A Different Point of Blue.

He performs several times a week in local clubs, both as a solo act and as a guest member with other performers. More often than not, Flewellyn shares the spotlight with only his Martin 000 Orchestra acoustic guitar.

D.G. has performed solo and ensemble with a wide range of musicians, including Ian Moore, Lou Ann Barton, Acoustic Alchemy, The Flatlanders, David Halley, and Sonny Curtis. He also has performed for two United States presidents.


Acclaimed guitarist John Sprott said Flewellyn’s strongest asset is his voice. “He has a really finely tuned sense of what is musically artful and germane,” Sprott said. “As a player, his classical/flamenco/folk finger-picking style is unique. I know of no one who does it better.”

An unexpected compliment from musician Lloyd Maines forced Flewellyn to accept: “I have my own sound.”

Musician Jesse Ballew said, “I don’t think I’ve ever heard an album recorded in Lubbock that sounds as good as D.G.’s ‘A Different Point of Blue.’ ”

Musician Stacy Bridges added, “D.G. is on the top shelf where local solo musicians are concerned. His original music is his calling card. (At his shows), I notice people requesting his original tunes by name and singing along. His CDs are in jukeboxes around town. It’s hard to argue with (that) kind of presence and visibility.”
