THE BANDS

3OG

Midland, TX

3OG (three old guys) started, surprisingly enough, with three musicians all with just a little road under their heals. With a previous career in music performance, they've since moved on to other vocations that take them away from the music they love. "This band (3OG) allows us to exercise our creative talents and make people happy. We all live to play for you"

The band covers some of the best music ever created from bands like Fleetwood Mac, James Taylor, Doobie Brothers, CSN, Eagles, America, Jimmy Buffet and so much more! "The music doesn't have to be old for us to do it, just really really good."

Great music, veteran performers, and a state of the art sound system make for an incredible night. Don't miss it!

Aaron Einhouse

Austin, TX

After the last few years of committed diligence, Aaron’s hard work has yielded great opportunities. He has been playing regular gigs at Gruene Hall and the greater Austin area, and has opened shows throughout Texas for the likes of Jack Ingram, Aaron Watson, and Roger Creager. He has also been writing songs daily, both on his own and with other celebrated songwriters, including Kent Finley and Hal Ketchum. His fan base is growing and Aaron is ready to give them something special with this new record. “I’m proud of every song on the album and feel they tell the stories I want to tell, the way I want to tell them.”

With the songs of his heroes providing continual inspiration; a few heroes alongside him on his journey, showing him the proverbial way; and his wife, son, and family firmly on his side, Aaron is headed for the destiny he might have never dreamed possible – creating music in which he believes, and that both his heroes and fans will enjoy. He is living the singer-songwriter dream, indeed.

Brant Croucher Houston, TX

Honesty and a genuine, no-frills approach are two defining characteristics of Brant Croucher’s songs – and way of life in general. Equally comfortable performing with a full band – from honky-tonks to the festival stage – or simply as a troubadour, with only a guitar or piano and a story, Croucher works to create venue-specific sets to connect with listeners at every show.

In Late 2014, Texas-based singer-songwriter Brant Croucher released Blanco County Lights, a full-length album produced by Jack Saunders (White Cat Studios, Houston, TX), which is currently #6 on the EuroAmericana Chart.

Bri Bagwell

Las Cruces, NM

Bri Bagwell is the 2013 and 2014 Texas Female Vocalist of the Year! She is real country music, and what country music should strive to be. She is an independent artist without a record deal, and without management. Her popularity is derived 100% by word of mouth and her raw talent. This grass roots effort is rare these days; it speaks to her infectious music and appeal.

She fell in love with music at an early age, and started playing in a band with her older brothers while just a teenager growing up in New Mexico. A couple of weeks after turning 18, she moved to Austin, TX to study at UT and begin her music career in the live music capital of the world. Late nights, rowdy Texas crowds, and being alone on stage with just a guitar shaped her onstage charismatic charm. She learned to gain a crowd’s attention with her beautiful voice, singing songs she wrote herself.

Calamity Janes Waxahachie, TX

This trio of sisters is exactly what comes to mind when you think sassy Texas singer/songwriters. With signature three part blood harmonies, hints of bluegrass and soul mixed with Red Dirt and solid song writing, The Calamity Janes have established a style that is truly all their own. The vocal versatility these gals possess to switch from a back woods bluegrass song to Irish Country Stomp ensures there will be something everyone can enjoy.

Carsie Blanton

New Orleans, LA

Here’s what you ought to know about me. First off, I love songs. I love pop songs, folk songs, jazz, soul, and rock songs. I write whatever kind of song gets my point across most clearly. My point, usually, is about the miraculous, ridiculous, confusing joy of being alive.

I love American pop music from every decade (Louis Armstrong to Beyonce), any folk music with guts (Nick Lowe, Patty Griffin), and just about anything that swings, grooves, or rocks (Billie Holiday, The Band, Donny Hathaway, Elvis Costello). Contenders for my favorite song of all time include "Do You Know What it Means to Miss New Orleans?", "Suzanne", and "F**k You".

I believe that music is magic, and everybody needs it. That’s why I give mine away.

Cleto Cordero Midland, TX

Cleto Cordero’s musical journey began at age 14 after receiving a guitar for Christmas. What seemed like an exciting new hobby soon turned out to be much more after the young teenager stumbled upon songwriting at age 17. “The response I’d get from people after listening to my original songs is really what pushed me to pursue a career in music. Having complete strangers walk up to you and tell you that your song has been stuck in their head all week makes you believe you’re on to something.” The Midland native is now based in Lubbock, TX, where he and his band, Flatland Cavalry, have been slowly climbing to the top of the regional music scene. Cleto and his young, energetic Folk-Country-Americana outfit are set to release their debut EP, Come May, in May 2015. Be on the lookout for the band’s first single, “Summertime Love,” to hit local radio stations in Late April.

Cody Bryan Band

Austin, TX

Texas native Cody Bryan has one of those rich, resonant voices that’s perfectly suited for country, whether he’s rocking a honky-tonk on Saturday night or soothing regret-filled hearts on Sunday morning. WRECK ME (May 14, 2013), the Cody Bryan Band’s debut album, showcases Bryan’s considerable vocal and songwriting skills on 10 strong tracks, most co-written during one marathon weekend in Nashville. Standouts include the first single, “If I’m Going Nowhere,” the love song, “When We Were Made,” and the title track “Wreck Me”. Helmed by producer and Blue October bassist Matt Noveskey, WRECK ME transcends geographic or stylistic boundaries while heralding the arrival of an important new talent. Cody is accompanied by Zach Lynch on lead guitar, Miles Barker on bass, Casey Conway on drums and Cole Gramling on keys to create the Cody Bryan Band! Look for these guys to make an impact on the Texas Country music scene in 2014!

Colton O’Neill Austin, TX

The Red Dirt Music Journal often receives information about a young performer who is supposed to be the next "really big thing.” Most often, however, let's just say, they fall a bit short of the hype.... that certainly isn't the case this time.

Not long ago, we were introduced to a Texas Country singer, songwriter, and guitar player named, Colton O'Neill who is soon to release his debut album. After listening to his music and experiencing his live set, there is no doubt in our opinion, he very well could be … well, you know...the next really....

Colton O’Neill is only 22 years old, but if you close your eyes during his performance, you'd never know it. He recently played a venue where the walls were covered by paintings of the great guitar playing legends that have come before him.

Dalton Domino

Lubbock, TX

There’s a perfectly natural reason as to why Dalton Domino’s debut LP, 1806, carries a varied and skillfully unpredictable quality to it. Domino is filled with the wandering spirit of a storyteller that’s never content with simply drawing from the tales of others. Over his life, he’s lived in a number of places, some of them such as Frisco, Texas and Las Vegas, Nevada, might as well be on different planets for all of the contrasts a perceptive fellow like Domino can tune into. Though he’s also lived in Alabama and Mississippi, a couple of states with a rich musical heritage to rival most states, Domino says Lubbock, Texas, no matter where else has laid his head or worked a job, has been, and always will be home.

Dovetail

Dallas, TX

American Roots Rock meets the British Invasion. Dovetail is a rock band from Dallas, TX. With roots firmly planted in their southern soil, Dovetail offers something versatile, and unique for a band from Texas. Writer Philip Creamer reaches beyond genre defining lines to explore timeless melodies and truly epic compositions. Family harmonies are a most definitive part of the Dovetail sound, creating a spritual live experience. Some fans liken it to The Beatles, some hear a little Queen, and maybe you’ll put it with more modern acts like Muse or Dawes, but the Dovetail sound promises to become a favorite in any music lover’s catalog. The gripping lyrics, and thoughtful, cascading, layered compositions hold a wealth of enjoyment for listerners.

Folk Family Revival

Magnolia, TX

While to some the name may conjure up images of old ladies in long blue-jean skirts and no makeup singing less than melodic nursery rhymes about nature and such, to others it rings of the roots of rock and roll. They may be best described as an alt-country/rock and roll band, but you don't have to listen long to hear the influence of Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel, The Byrds, The Band, Buffalo Springfield, Donovan and many others that that bridged the gap between the American folk scene to the Folk Rock scene of the mid 1960's that was strongly influenced by the British rock sound of bands like the Beatles. Though all the members of the band are still in their early twenties, their music dips into the deep waters of the folk revival as does the music of so many of their heroes. They are a throwback to a time when southern rock and phychodelic music dominated the airwaves yet distinctively new and different.

Funkster Midland, TX

Playing a variety of top hits mixed with jazz, blues, rock, funk and hip-hop, this band will definitely get the party started! FUNKSTER is an eclectic group of musicians and vocalists whom have all had much experience playing with numerous different bands from all over.

Isaiah Chavez(Guitar) Harvey Aguillar(Bass) Gary Richardson(Keyboard) Caleb Williams(Upright Bass) Jason Buchan(Sax) Steven Silva(Trumpet) Richy Puga (Drums) Kendra Leonard(Vocals) Gaby De la Garza(Vocals) Jessica Rios(Vocals) &Terez Lyons(Vocals).

Grace Askew Memphis, TN

At the wild age of 22, Grace left six generations of Memphis roots behind to find her voice – what she found was far more than a delicately destructive sound. Invoking the spirits of the cross roads and imbibing the spirits of the heartland, this Tennessee tumbleweed found a home with the salt of the earth. Her songs are their stories – they are a mausoleum to hearts broken along the way and a shrine to the poignantly mundane – hemmed with deep compassion and an unapologetic vulnerability. A born-again rambler baptized by the road, she was destined by her very name.

If Birds Could Fly Appalachia, VA

Where many enthusiasts of string-band music play with the period-correct discipline of Civil War re-creationists, this humble quartet offers a refreshing take on Appalachian folk, classic Americana, and Rock n Roll. If Birds Could Fly is uniquely a bird of a different feather. This Southwest VA quartet blends many genres to achieve their simplistic yet unmistakable sound. From Folk to Indie , there is something in their music that everyone can enjoy. From the soothing guitar melodies to the vocal chills, this act promises to deliver a sound truly from their heart to those willing to listen.

Jason Eady

Fort Worth, TX

Jason Eady’s inspired new album Daylight and Dark embraces multiple styles of die-hard country music to weave together 11 songs about the deep, messy details of love and life. The disc is sequenced to follow the arc of one man’s journey through the complexities of the heart. But the semi-autobiographical Daylight and Dark is not a concept album. Instead, it’s a powerful study in honesty; a collection of real stories populated by real characters that coalesced around Eady’s title track.

John D. Hale Band

Jackson, MO

The John D. Hale Band sets up shop on the family ranch in their hometown of Jackson, Missouri, a true testament to the rural approach, sound, and subject matter of the songs they play. The quartet, made up of John D. Hale (vocals, guitar), Kurt Tietz(bass, vocals), Chris Brotherton (drums, vocals) and Mason Watkins (lead guitar), put on a live show that is an energetic and rowdy showcase of great, American music. Armed with their original songs and a handful of covers by their heroes, the John D. Hale Band continues to travel this great country in search of anyone and everyone who will listen.

Jonny Burke Austin, TX

Jonny Burke is a man continually on the move, musically and literally. His debut solo album – “Distance and Fortune” -­‐ was quickly followed up with his 2012 release, “Cup Runneth Over.” As producer of the bulk of the project – released independently on his own Dreamcar Records — Burke made an album that is as raw and honest as it gets.

Burke admits that he has enjoyed being on stage and performing from an early age. He was born and raised in New Braunfels, a small town in Texas. His dad taught him his first chords and played him Chuck Berry’s ‘Jonny B. Goode’ when he was a little boy. Burke would listen to albums like Dylan’s “Highway 61 Revisited” and Townes Van Zandt’s “Flyin Shoes” over and over again. By the time Burke was 15, he was already performing in bars. He formed his first band, the Dedringers, and it became a popular regional band while he was still in his teens. “I thought it was the coolest thing in the world to come home after playing a bar and making a little cash,” he recalls. “Nobody in high school could compete with that!”

Justin Langston Midland, TX

Blessed with a crooner’s voice and excellent strum on the guitar, Justin takes his roots from Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Mayer, and Dean Martin, then creates his own sound. Justin sees his music ability as a blessing and remains humble about his talents. He says, “Playing music starts from the heart and if you ever become great, it is a gift from God, not an accomplishment.” . “If I can get my fans to hear and feel what I feel in my music, then maybe they can relate to my reality and make a new friend.” Justin muses. His stage demeanor is laid back, with a friendly smile and a message that his fans relate to. He continues to hone his gift by playing as many shows as possible. His lyrics tug at your heart strings and his melody keeps you coming back for more. Justin is quickly becoming a voice that you will be hearing for some time to come.

Leopold and His Fiction

Austin, TX

Naked, stripped down and aching with adrenaline is the rawness of Leopold and his Fiction. Originally
formed as an outlet for Daniel James Leopold to exercise his lessons from his formative years in Detroit,
the seminal force of Leopold and his Fiction is the catalyst for soul-drenched, bare-bones rock ‘n’ roll that
shakes with the power of ’73-era Stooges while seducing with the rhythm and blues of Motown. “The band
elicits a power when it’s time to perform that is unable to be harnessed in any other medium short of a fist
fight,” says Leopold. “Whether that’s on stage or in a recording studio it’s almost hard to contain it. It’s more
life than I’ve ever felt before.”

Matt Stell

Nashville, TN

"I dread answering the question 'what kind of music do you play' every time it's asked," says Matt Stell. "Every time someone asks me, I just end up telling them that we're like 30 of my favorite bands and proceed to recommend songs and YouTube clips to them."

Matt Stell’s love for all kinds of music runs deep and he draws from many different sources for inspiration. Somewhere between Country, Americana, Blues, Soul, Folk, Gospel and Rock n’ Roll you’ll find Matt Stell. Geographically situated between the traditional homes of these and other styles of music, it makes sense that he would learn from and study under these traditions in order to craft a sound that’s all his own.

Migrant Kids Austin, TX

Migrant Kids are an Austin based jungle rock trio. They have played and toured with The Bright Light Social Hour, Making Movies, Sphynx, Pinata Protest, and Wild Mocassins. They were given their own official "Migrant Kids Day" here at city hall where they performed for the mayor himself. They've been featured on MTV shows (my life as liz, cribs, my super sweet 16). After a successful national radio/PR campaign with Team Clermont they've toured relentlessly through all of Texas including Houston, El Paso, Marfa, Denton, San Antonio, San Angelo, San Marcos, Mission, College Station, Bryan, Ft Worth, Waco, McAllen, Harlingen, Laredo, and Corpus Christi; as well as FLorida and Louisiana. The live show consists of the album they released in September as well as newer uptempo material.

Mike and The Moonpies

Austin, TX

For the past seven years, Mike and the Moonpies have been making a name for themselves as Austin Texas' premier honky tonk band. With the growing regional popularity of their 2012 release "The Hard Way," radio single of the same name, and a non-stop regional touring schedule, they have recently taken the entire Texas music scene by storm. The Moonpies have delivered some of the most memorable performances in recent years in venues like Gruene Hall and Luckenbach TX, and have gained a cult like following in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee and throughout the midwest.

Parker McCollum Conroe, TX

At just 22 years old, Parker McCollum is already earning comparisons to critically acclaimed artists like Ryan Bingham and John Mayer. However, the young singer-songwriter has also worked tirelessly to establish his own name, a fact that is evident on his striking full-length debut album, The Limestone Kid, which will be released on Feb. 24, 2015. The 11-song record (featuring nine originals written by Parker — a writer mature beyond his age — and a guest appearance from steel guitar legend Lloyd Maines) covers an impressive amount of musical ground, from the driving roots rock of “Lucy” to the introspective heartbreak of the album’s first single, “Meet You in the Middle.” A rising star on the regional music scene, McCollum and his stellar band plan to take their energetic show on tour this year to celebrate the release of The Limestone Kid.

Radio Birds

Atlanta, GA

To see and hear them now, you might never believe that a few short years ago Radio Birds had a completely different lineup, look, and sound. In early 2013, rising united from their earlier musical experiences, these four young men decided to take a risk and start completely over with a new name and sound. They quickly worked up a batch of new songs, and by that summer they had recorded a successful EP and had begun playing extensively, even winning the 2013 Masquerade Musicians Showcase in Atlanta, GA. Within a year of their rechristening, they were booked for The Rock Boat 2014 (and 15!), were featured in a major motion picture (Jason Momoa's Road to Paloma), played SXSW, and attracted the services of indie Atlanta label Brash Music. Things have moved quickly for a reason, and everyone involved points back to two causes: Radio Bird's irresistible character and undeniably unique sound.

Rodney Parker & 50 Peso Reward Denton, TX

For over a decade Rodney Parker & 50 Peso Reward have lingered on the fringes, building a cult following of fans who thirst for a sound more cerebral and musical than what the status quo has had to offer. Since 2002, the Pesos have shaken off the norms of the modern Texas music establishment, taking a more radical approach. The bands' sound is not any more southern rock than Steve Earle, and not any more outlaw than Robert Earl Keen. One writer called the Pesos the band that "just might kick Old 97's in the teeth," and another called the Pesos "Weezer meets Waylon." This may be the best rock back country music has to offer.

ROXY ROCA

Austin, TX

ROXY ROCA recently wrapped up production on their new record, “Ain’t Nothin’ Fancy,” recorded at EAR Studio in Austin with producer Lars Goransson at the helm and are looking forward to its release on February 24, 2015 on Stag Records.

Seth Walker

New Orleans, LA

Over the past 10 years, Seth Walker has become recognized as one of the most revered modern roots artists in the United States; a three dimensional talent comprised by a gift for combining melody and lyric within a song, a rich, Gospel-drenched, Southern-inflected voice and a true blue knack for getting around on the guitar. On his latest studio album, Sky Still Blue, produced by Oliver Wood of The Wood Brothers, Walker delivers a masterwork that further expands upon this reputation.

Spoonfed Tribe Fort Worth, TX

Spoonfed Tribe combines indie-rock and art-rock into it’s own hybrid sound, too easily categorized as “progressive” or “avant garde”, and maybe best described as sounding like either “Nine Inch Nails meets Rusted Root” or “Alice In Chains meets Jane’s Addiction”. However, there is an unmistakable groove, fueled by a stage full of drums and percussion, and the live show—as much a visual as an auditory experience—often evolves into a mesmerizing, hypnotic, tranced-out dance party, punctuated by heavy guitar riffs and the lyrical content inspired by the band’s stated mission: “Spoonfed Tribe is Us, it’s You, and it’s Everybody on this plane now. We are all spoon fed information and intention (Hidden or Shown). Our goal is to touch as many of you as possible through our Music and Words.”

Sphynx

Austin, TX

These Austin, TX natives have been compared to pop icons like Prince and David Bowie and to newer groups like Phoenix and MGMT for good reason. The trio's vibrant live show has carved it's own niche in Austin, where they've sold out popular venues, charted on pop/alternative stations, and become a fixture of the music scene. This was demonstrated on February 13, 2014 when the band performed at City Hall and Mayor Lee Leffingwell proclaimed the day 'Sphynx Day' in Austin.

The Statesboro Revue

Austin, TX

The Statesboro Revue dates back to 2008, but the evolving vision of front man and primary songwriter Stewart Mann goes back much further. It’s a journey down many roads, from Texas to Tennessee and to California and back, all in a search for that perfect, unspoiled place for his music to grow roots. Year after year, in city after city, it became clear that those roots had taken hold on stage, and from there grew into a groove-oriented, old school rock and roll band, the likes of which have not been seen in quite some time.

The Ghost Wolves

Austin, TX

The Ghost Wolves' name mirrors the ferocious, primal sounds the Austin duo conjure from drums (Jonny Wolf) and guitar (Carley Wolf), and acknowledges Carley's upbringing among hybrid wolves on her family's ranch. The duo take inspiration from a variety of American styles ­but refer to their unbelievably fierce sound as just Texas Rock ’N’ Roll.

The O’s

Dallas, TX

We started our group in the summer of 2008, and after having known each other through all of our other groups (Polyphonic Spree, Young Heart Attack, Slick 57, Rose County Fair, Hi-Fi Drowning, etc), it was an easy upstart and took no time jumping in head first. We both had songs that we felt needed to be played but no band to use as an outlet. Three months later, we entered the recording studio and recorded an EP which ended up being half of our first album "We Are The O’s" (2009 Idol Records).

We have since toured relentlessly all across the US, UK, Europe, and even jaunted to Hawaii, hi-fiving friends and fans alike; just trying to keep ourselves out on the road and creating new music for good people. In 2011, we recorded our second album with the Grammy award winning Stuart Sikes. Entitled “Between The Two,” we decided to play every instrument on the album and had Stuart man the helm. It was liberating and excited and brought us further than we had been before.

The Warhorses

Austin, TX

The Warhorses blend their country, rock and blues influences to produce an authentic sound that is a true reflection of their musical upbrinings. The band independently released their debut EP, “Regardless,” on March 1, 2014. “Leave Me Alone,” the band’s first single from that EP, was a top 50 single on both the Texas Music Chart and Texas Regional Radio Report.

The Rhythm section is filled out by the strong and solid drumming of Beau Brauer along with the precise Bass playing of Rody Molder.

Two Cow Garage Columbus, OH

As one of the most consistently-touring indie bands today, Two Cow Garage continues to captivate audiences with live shows that serve up manic stage energy, gritty chord changes, and subtle lyric-mindedness. The band’s intense, fiery persona conjures authentic tunes that would be as at home in a Raymond Carver story as they are on a car stereo in the dead heat of an August, midwestern night.

Unsweet Ts Midland, TX

The Unsweet Ts are a local midland Texas band who debuted October 2011 and consists of Jason Tarlton , lead vocals, rhythm guitar, harmonica, mandolin Judi Tarlton, bass guitar, vocals Dr. Brian Miller, lead guitar & Morris "Coach" Kuhrt on drums and vocals.

Whiskey Shivers Austin, TX

Hatched in the twilight months of ought nine, these five young men came from all corners of the US looking to do one thing: knock the dust off roots music.

A freewheelin', trashgrassin', folk tornado, the Whiskey Shivers take traditional instrumentation, soak it in gasoline and send it into outer space. Breakneck speeds, killer grooves and impeccable musicianship: it's enough to make Bill Monroe himself do a double-take as he spins in his grave.

With upright bass, fiddle, washboard, banjo, guitar, and reasonably priced merchandise, Whiskey Shivers adds a fine layer of grit on top of the hard-driving rhythms of traditional bluegrass. They've been called everything from "trashgrass" to "hardcore roots" to "crazy-assed redneck music" — whatever the words, the meaning is the same: Whiskey Shivers brings the house down.
