Texas is a Scottish band that emerged in the late 1980s, achieving international success with their distinct blend of pop, rock, and soul. Led by the charismatic Sharleen Spiteri, the band garnered widespread recognition for hits like “Say What You Want,” “Summer Son,” and “Black Eyed Boy.” Their 1989 debut album, “Southside,” set the stage for a fruitful career characterized by Spiteri’s soulful vocals and the band’s melodic soundscapes. With a string of chart-topping albums and a loyal fan base, Texas remains a prominent figure in the music scene, symbolizing the enduring appeal of their Scottish charm and musical versatility.
