The Procrastinators started out with David Green and Bill Carson entertaining themselves playing and singing cover songs. It was all very loose and they soon drifted apart with Carson devoting time to raising a family and Green moving to Austin. Upon Green's return to Fort Worth, the two got together to play music again. Green was writing more by this time and soon released his sparsely produced, Little Victories, consisting of 12 original songs. Carson was beginning to write and eventually had his own collection of self penned material. Collaboration was the next logical step and their efforts reaped big rewards. The results exceeded what either of them had accomplished on their own.
The following year found them holed up at Moonlight Recorders learning their way around the studio. With only a handful of co-written songs, they didn't have enough material for an album but it was time well spent as they honed their craft. Things went unfinished and the project was abandoned. They reconvened a year later and got comfortable writing together again. Each came to the table with new songs and new song ideas but it quickly became obvious how much better the material was when they worked in collaboration.
It was during this time that several of their most enduring songs were born. Such standards as Sweet Marie, The Hangman, and Mexico or Bust were created during this fruitful period. Recording sessions commenced and the resulting EP, White Boys From Wedgwood, was warmly received. Green and Carson were caught off guard by the response and the impending cry for a live performance. They retreated to the warmth and comfort of pen and paper.
Green stepped on stage for the first time in his life with good friend, Bob Levings, at the legendary White Elephant Saloon. As part of The Clubhouse Concert Series, local promoter, Joni Beard, had asked them to open for Brandon Jenkins. Green enjoyed the experience so much that he performed weekly thereafter at The White Elephant. With only six months of live performances under his belt, Green was then asked to serve as the opening act for Randy Rogers; again as part of the Clubhouse Concert Series. He convinced Carson that they should take the opportunity to perform as a duo and the pair pulled off their first live performance.
Within a year, they had enough material to put together an album. Recording sessions ensued and they enlisted the talents of many A-list players from the Fort Worth music scene. Fall 2005 saw the release of the self titled disc, The Procrastinators. As if to acknowledge the criticism of their years of procrastination, the pair assumed The Procrastinators moniker and wore it as a badge of honor. They had accomplished what many said they wouldn't.
The debut CD garnered local radio play, heavy jukebox rotation and great social media reaction. A band was assembled to support the duo at such places as The Poop Deck, Billy Miners Saloon, The Love Shack and The Oui Lounge. Live performance was never their goal, but they felt it was important to support the album and appease their fan base. The Procrastinators will never be accused of overexposure from too many live appearances.
Requests for a follow up album have been heard and The Procrastinators are pleased to announce that they are in the studio recording a new CD. No release date has been set and fans are asked to remember that there is a reason they are called The Procrastinators.
