Texas Music Hall of Fame Inductee Patrice Pike will light you on fire. With nothing more than her guitar and her musical partner in crime, Wayne Sutton. There's a little Sheryl Crow, a little Fleetwood Mac, a little Edie Brickell, and a little something fairylike that you just can't quite place in this sexy songstress.

Patrice Pike and Wayne Sutton are touring this summer bringing their new collaboration of arrangements of songs from Sister 7 and all their catalog of solo projects over the years. Patrice and Wayne are the founders of the seminal jam band Little Sister, also known as Sister 7. The two have toured with Sister 7 and on their own including supporting the Allman Brothers, John Fogerty, Sarah McLachlan, Ray Charles, Chris Isaak and Dave Matthews Band among others.

"Superior chops and golden harmonies."
- Austin Chronicle

Wood & Wire
Wood and Wire
ListenWatchWebsite
It's been five years now since Wood & Wire sprouted out of the rich musical soil of Austin, Texas. In that time, they've written music, recorded albums, and performed at some of the most notable festivals and venues across the country. In the often tightly defined genre of bluegrass music, Wood & Wire's "band-style" ethos are not unheard of. Nor are the elements of song crafting, so often associated with their Texas home, that permeate their sound. That said, what comes out of the Wood & Wire blender is something entirely its own.

A night of brilliant songs and heartfelt stories with
Adam & Chris Carroll
Adam Carroll
ListenWatchWebsite
Adam Carroll: A Texas Songwriter born and raised, Adam Carroll takes the events of ordinary lives and turns them into deeply moving, often humorous songs. With seven Indie CDs supporting regular tours across the USA, Canada and Europe as "one of the hippest songwriters on the Texas music landscape", this engaging Americana guitar-picker has earned further critical acclaim with song placements in the Grammy nominated film, Country Strong and others. “The core of what I do is songwriting; it's the one thing I'm passionate about. It's the most fulfilling and challenging job I can imagine." explains Adam.

From his studio records produced by Grammy Award winner Lloyd Maines (South of Town, Lookin' Out the Screen Door, Live at Cheatham Street, Far Away Blues) through to his latest releases (Old Town Rock N Roll, Hard Times with Michael O'Connor, Live at Flipnotics), the quality of his songwriting stands out.

Chris Carroll: Chris Carroll is originally from St. Catharines, Ontario. She now lives in San Marcos, Texas with her husband and music partner Adam Carroll. Carroll’s music does a little bit of genre hopping, pulling in influences from all over the map, but her music is still deep within the Americana roots and has the ability to draw in an audience. Chris released her debut record, “Trouble & Time” in 2014, produced by David Beck (Sons of Fathers & Blue Healer). Susan Gibson says of Chris' work: "Her recording, Trouble & Time, has so many expressions...just like a human face. Tracks like "Mister" smirk at you while "Dreaming You Up" has a Mona Lisa smile quality to it. Each song emotes such intimate eye contact, just like her live performance, and I don't think Chris will be the first to blink."

"Bluegrass is steeped in tradition but with a twist that can only be described as fun." - Huffington Post
Chatham County Line
Chatham County Line
ListenWatchWebsite
Raleigh, NC ­based Chatham County Line—Wilson, John Teer (mandolin/fiddle), Chandler Holt (banjo), and Greg Readling (bass, pedal steel, piano)—formed in the late 1990’s. The story behind the workmanlike group’s newest release—available via Yep Roc Records—is simple: A veteran ensemble at the top of its game sticking to its considerable strengths—poignant songwriting and inventive acoustic arrangements that draw upon a broad array of American roots influences, highlighted by trademark three­ and four­part harmonies that shine throughout. But like the flat­screen televisions that now dot those bowling lanes, the quartet respects its history—from bluegrass inventor Bill Monroe to innovators like John Hartford—while remaining mindful of more modern influences, including its members’ backgrounds in rock bands.

“Mr. Fullbright joins the lineage of terse Southwestern songwriters like Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, sticking to a few folky chords and reaching for unassailable clarity.” — Jon Pareles, The New York Times

John Fullbright got his start at the legendary Blue Door listening room in Oklahoma City. It was there that he recorded a live album and found his base, opening for many other writers including fellow Oklahomans Kevin Welch and Jimmy Webb. His 2012 studio debut, From the Ground Up received a Grammy nomination for Americana Album of the Year, and later that year he won ASCAP’s Harold Adamson Award for lyric writing. In 2014, John released the critically acclaimed Songs, toured all over America and the UK, and appeared on Late Night with David Letterman.

John Fullbright is the 2012 Recipient of the Bugle Boy Founder's Choice Talent Trust Award! This award assisted John with the release of his Grammy nominated album "From The Ground Up"

"Lenny Kravitz’ hybrid of classic rock and soul, the bluesy swagger of Stevie Ray Vaughn, and the sweltering funk of Prince." - No Depression
Hamilton Loomis
Hamilton Loomis
ListenWatchWebsite
Below the musical notes on GIVE IT BACK, the latest release from Hamilton Loomis, lies an altruistic message; showcasing a “pay it forward” philosophy, Loomis states his goal to share the knowledge and information that was given to him as a young musician. "I was lucky to have musical mentors like Joe ‘Guitar’ Hughes, Johnny ‘Clyde’ Copeland, and of course, rock icon Bo Diddley,” stated Loomis. “These ‘veterans’ took the time to teach and give advice to us youngsters, as if ‘passing the torch.’ Now that they have passed, it’s my duty, not just an obligation, to do the same with this generation’s young musicians. That's giving it back, handing it down, passing it on, like the song says.”

Bridging the gap between generations of music-lovers and redefining blues-based American music for a contemporary audience, Loomis created his own path and built a loyal following by blending myriad influences, clever songwriting, and an expressive voice into a sound that defies description. Feeling his current style, layered onto his bluesy foundation, will attract a new generation of fans, Loomis looks forward to the appeal GIVE IT BACK will have on today’s young listeners.

"Wilson's intense, red-hot piano playing has audiences roaring on the edge of their seats and clamoring for more." - Houston Weekly
Matt Wilson Band
Matt Wilson
ListenWatchWebsite
Matt Wilson is a consummate performing musician. He first gained national exposure wowing sold-out audiences as the “Piano Man” in the First National Tour of the Billy Joel and Twyla Tharp's Tony-award winning musical “Movin’ Out.” The Austin-based singer-songwriter’s big gospel voice and the down-home flavor of his tasty piano playing made him ideal to represent Joel’s music.

His band, Matt Wilson Band, has a deep catalog of original and classic soul, R&B, rock n’ roll, blues, funk, and gospel it performs with warmth, wit, and white-gloved showmanship. Wilson believes there is an art to presenting these treasured tunes in a way that’s reverent but relevant. Wilsons’ band’s soul-revue personality imbues its interpretations of standards by Beatles, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ray Charles, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder and Bill Withers with spirited sincerity.

Matt Wilson is a first rate entertainer. With sacred roots in the church band, a Music Performance 101-rigorous Disney World piano gig, and a critically acclaimed tenure in “Movin’ Out,” shaping his career, he’s become a well-rounded passionate and polished musician with elegant charms and electrifying chops. Live or recorded, Wilson’s unflinching positivity and heartfelt commitment to his craft will move and inspire you.

Two of Texas' Finest Songwriters Share the Stage
Drew Kennedy
& Josh Grider

Drew Kennedy

ListenWatchWebsite
Josh Grider

ListenWatchWebsite
Drew Kennedy released his eighth album, called At Home in the Big Lonesome, in late 2017, and it has already garnered rave reviews and the top spot on many "Best of 2017" lists. Galleywinter wrote, “You fall into the wondrous rush of his words and melodies until you yourself end up in that desolate, descriptive place Kennedy has created. It’s transcendent work on the level of Clark, Van Zandt and Keen.” Drew lives in New Braunfels, Texas with his wife, two sons, three dogs, a cat, and a generous school of fish that he tries not to forget to feed when his wife assigns the task (the fish, that is… the dogs let him know if he's forgetting about them in their unmistakable way).

Josh Grider: On upcoming new record Good People, the New Mexico native turns the lessons he’s learned so far into an impressive collection of catchy, substantive country tunes — the kind that draw parallels between Grider and artists like Kacey Musgraves and Steve Earle. But Grider delivers them with a smooth neo-traditional baritone to rival Joe Nichols and melodic hooks that, when they hit you just right, feel timeless on first listen. Lead single “Good People” is the perfect example. It's Grider’s reminder to himself that, no matter all the tragedy we see on our TV screens, there are so many good people outnumbering the bad.

"A new generation blues man, with a feel for the music and the credentials to prove it." - Creative Loafing
Guy Forsyth
w/ Jeska Bailey

Guy Forsyth
ListenWatchWebsite
Austin’s Guy Forsyth has long enjoyed praise for his dazzling live shows and rich Americana and Blues roots sound. Guy is known today as a musician with gripping, powerful vocals as well as a master of numerous instruments. He started his musical development first with singing, and began playing harmonica at 16. Shortly thereafter he heard a very distinct and overwhelming sound on Kansas City radio that changed his life; it was Robert Johnson. After that, he borrowed a guitar, fell in love and learned to tune it with his feet from a friend who had lost both his arms in an accident. In college, he lasted a single semester at the University of Kansas, and then he found the music he had been seeking – gritty, organic folk and blues, “from a practical hands-on, gears, joints and joists level.”

Since then, he’s been awarded an Austin Music Award for Best Male Vocalist in 2005, as well as numerous other AMA’s over the years in categories such as Blues and Best Miscellaneous Instrument Player (singing saw), among others. Last year’s 2-disc live record, Unrepentant Schizophrenic Americana, was received very well by critics and fans alike.
