Austinite Abraham Weaver’s Passionate Country Album ‘Yours’ Is A Blockbuster
Abraham Weaver is an Austin musician whose songs can put listeners through an emotional wringer, thanks to lyrics that tell stories in a ways that only a country artist can.
Born and raised in Texas, Weaver has called himself an Austinite more than once. But unlike like many Texas musicians, he also spent time on the east coast before returning to the Live Music Capital of the World. Naturally, he has also toured the U.S. promoting his music.
On Weaver’s latest effort, an album titled Yours, it’s easy to see why this man is so well traveled. Yours is proof positive that a simple country record, with hints of Garth Brooks and Tim McGraw, can be the perfect showcase not just for strong songwriting and excellent guitar plucking, but also for gripping tales of past loves and joyous stories from living the good life.
“Abraham Weaver es otro talento texano latino en la onda de Rick Treviño o Rick Orozco que nos sorprende con un álbum titulado “Yours”, fresco, con canciones pegadizas como este nuevo single en el mercado texano ‘Ain´t It Amazing’, bonitas baladas con corazón como ‘Yours’, con influencias tex mex como en ‘Angelina’… Al principio de su carrera hizo de telonero para country “acts” de los 90: Perfect Stranger, Eddy Raven, Tracy Lawrence, Johnny Rodriguez, Hank Williams III, Hal Ketchum, Ty Herndon, Doug Supernaw, Daryle Singletary, Rhett Akins… Nada menos. Y esas son sus influencias junto con el nuevo tradicionalismo de los 80-90, Garth Brooks, entre otros. Abraham es un joven veterano que sigue persiguiendo el sueño de hacer lo correcto: la mejor música country. Y va por el mejor camino.”
Andoni Urkiaga – Madrid, Spain
The album “Yours”, contains 10 songs, all of which are well recorded and sonically superb. I loved the music, the harmonies, and the musicianship.The Spanish/English mix in “Angelina” works great, especially the Latin inspired instrumentals throughout the song. And the title track “Yours” lends a slow, steady, calming touch giving the listener a front seat to a very emotionally driven song; which is singer/songwriter at its finest! The remaining eight songs are all equally amazing.There are only a handful of singer/songwriters that I can think of that reach this close to perfection. After listening to all the songs on Abraham Weaver’s new album “Yours”, I feel it is well worth a spot in any music lovers collection! Highly recommended!

TURNTABLE TUESDAY – Yours – Abraham Weaver
One of the great things about my job is finding gems buried within social media. I love the process even more when those gems find me. Such was the case with Abraham Weaver, a talented artist from Austin, TX.
The thing I love most about this album is that I can hear Abraham. His soulful, Jim Croce style to his voice, evidence of the four years he spent in Pennsylvania. Each note comes through soft and genuine… not buried in unnecessary instruments.
YOURS is a date night album from start to finish. Ain’t It Amazin’ kicks off the ten tracks, pulling you onto the dance floor and keeps you there right into that moment where you move in closer to one another for A Smile Like Yours. The south and west Texas influences come out with the Spanish-inspired lyrics of Angelina.
