"Max Stalling will keep your foot tapping, heart pounding, and dancing shoes worn."
Max Stalling
Max Stalling

ListenWatchWebsite
Texas based songwriter, Max Stalling, had no expectation of ever being in the music business. “I didn’t even pick up a guitar until graduate school,” notes Stalling. After attending high school in South Texas, Stalling studied at Texas A&M - College Station, where he earned a masters degree in Food Science. During this time, Stalling discovered the Three Teardrops Tavern and Dallas community radio station KNON. These outlets exposed a musical heritage to which Stalling had been nearly oblivious. Inspired by artists like Townes Van Zandt, Robert Earl Keen, Guy Clark, Lyle Lovett, and Jerry Jeff Walker, Stalling started writing songs, recording albums, and eventually touring with a full band to back him. Sixty thousand CDs later, Stalling joined musical greats Kris Kristofferson, Michael Nesmith of the Monkees, Selena, Guy Clark and many others when he received a star on the South Texas Music Walk of Fame in Corpus Christi. His song “Scars and Souvenirs” was used as the title for an episode of Grey’s Anatomy in 2007 and he is featured on the CW Network’s Troubadour, TX television series.

Despite playing the same circuit as many household names in Texas country, grouping Stalling with them would be premature. His unique voice and amusingly clever song lyrics pull him in a different direction - a direction most obviously evident in his newest record Home to You. Stalling put together an elite team for his newest project, including recording heavyweight and Grammy winner Lloyd Maines. “I’m very proud of the life that everyone has given these songs,” says Max. “They poured their hearts and souls into this project and I think people will be wowed by what they can do.”

A brilliant combination of musical genius!
Johnny Nicholas
& Cindy Cashdollar

Johnny Nicholas
ListenWatchWebsite
JOHNNY NICHOLAS:
“Johnny Nicholas is one of the best bluesmen ever, black or white.” ~ Stephen Bruton

For four decades Johnny’s consummate musicianship and vocal skills have graced live music scenes across the country and abroad. He has toured, performed and recorded with many true blues and Americana Roots Music legends including: Mississippi Fred McDowell, Big Walter Horton, Roosevelt Sykes, Eddie Taylor, Billy Boy Arnold, Hound Dog Taylor, Johnny Young, Houston Stackhouse, and Boogie Woogie Red.

He recorded and toured with Johnny Shines and Snooky Pryor, producing and playing guitar on their W.C. Handy Award-winning album Back to the Country. He was a lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist with Asleep at the Wheel when they won their first of many Grammy Awards. The common thread between all these influences is that of a true storyteller and troubadour, a living connection to the roots of American music that started in the Mississippi Delta and continues to flow down the river of traditional and contemporary sounds that emanate from Johnny Nicholas.

CINDY CASHDOLLAR:

Austin-based Cindy Cashdollar's career hit yet another high-point when, in March of 2012, the Dobro and steel guitarist was inducted into the Texas Music Hall of Fame. Cashdollar is also the first female to be inducted into the Texas Steel Guitar Hall Of Fame. The 2011 event was held in Dallas during the Texas Steel Guitar Association's weekend of concerts, seminars and awards. She dedicated the honor to Marian Hall, whom she cited as "truly one of the greats and one of the first female pioneers of the instrument."

Cashdollar's talent has paved the way for her to work with legendary Rod Steward, Van Morrison and Bob Dylan, among others.

Milkdrive
MilkDrive
ListenWatchWebsite
Austin progressive alt.-folk acoustic string band MilkDrive features award-winning musicians — Noah Jeffries on guitar, Dennis Ludiker on mandolin, Brian Beken on fiddle, Matt Mefford on Double bass — but awards reveal nothing about the quartet’ soul. ROAD FROM HOME produced by Bil VornDick (Alison Krauss, Bela Fleck) its debut studio album captures the quartet’s soulful, textural, multi-layer mix of rhythms, and improvisation and its harmony vocals.

The band’s much-anticipated sophomore studio album WAVES, produced by Bil VornDick, was released in June 2012. Capturing the band’s sophisticated arrangements and fierce musicianship, the album showcases a number of original compositions and features guests Noam Pikelny (of Punch Brothers) and Futureman (of Bela Fleck & the Flecktones). Dennis Ludiker, Brian Beken and Noah Jeffries met as youngsters competing in the National Oldtime Fiddlers’ Contest in Weiser, Idaho. Eventually they migrated to Austin, where they toured with an eclectic mix of bands and honed their songwriting chops before joining up with bass player extraordinaire Matt Mefford and forming MilkDrive.

"All the vibe in the world." - Rolling Stone
Suzanna Choffel
Suzanna Choffel
ListenWatchWebsite
Suzanna Choffel is many things: a rising star, an undeniable musical force and a unique voice (a “honeyed husk,” as it’s been posited) who feels equally at home singing in a dimly-lit, smoky club as she does front and center in front of (literally) millions. So, lyrical protestations aside, Choffel is no hidden gem. She’s already making her mark. Granted, she’s hard to pin down. Consider her critical praise — she’s “Feist meets Erykah Badu with a hint of Tex-Mex seasoning.” She’s “equal parts Beat poetry, smoky soul grooves and indie-pop eccentricity.” She’s “graceful” and yet, as Rolling Stone asserts, possessing “all the vibe in the world.”

In Austin, she began to focus on her own recordings, developing a unique sound that mixed elements of all her musical passions, including R&B, reggae, pop, and jazz. Her first album, Shudders & Rings, won accolades (“The Next Fun Fearless Female Rock Star” crowed the Austin Chronicle) and more than a few local and indie music awards. But it was her live show where people really took notice. No matter the venue, hers was always an intimate affair, one the Austin Chronicle rightly captured: “The graceful confidence of her music,” they noted, “allows Choffel to make every performance feel as if it's late night and she's in a South Austin living room grooving for the pleasure of it.” Always up for the unexpected, Choffel auditioned for and landed a spot on NBC’s popular primetime singing competition The Voice in 2012, wowing the judges with her renditions of Fleetwood Mac and Bob Marley, and earning singular praise from Rolling Stone as “the only artist you’d want to listen to a complete album from.”

Let It Burn - CD Release
Already Climbing the Americana Charts!

Shelley King
& band

Shelley King
ListenWatchWebsite
Some people enter a room and blend right in. Not Shelley King. She sweeps in, carrying herself with the strength and assurance of a woman who knows how to step up and get it done, whether “it” is leading her band, running her own record label or co-producing her new album, Building A Fire. If there’s a little swagger to her strut, she’s earned it. Since quitting a sales job to pursue music full time in 1998, the singer-songwriter has served as the first female Texas state musician, performed with Levon Helm, toured the United States, Europe and Japan and cut seven albums — including this one, her seventh, her second album to co-produce with members of the subdudes. She’s also the author of a song recorded by Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra; they duetted on “Texas Blue Moon” after Hazlewood heard King’s version on the radio while driving through the state. That might chalk up as a lucky break, but it’s King’s talent and tenacity that make such breaks happen.

In addition to Fort Collins, parts of Building A Fire were tracked in Austin and Muscle Shoals. It features King on vocals and guitar; Amedee on drums, percussion, mandolin and support vocals; Magnie on vocals, accordion and keyboards; Marvin Dykhuis on vocals, guitars, dobro and mandolin; and Sarah Brown on bass. Guests include Wonderland on electric guitar, Cindy Cashdollar on lap steel, Warren Hood on fiddle and Tim Cook on vocals. “They’re just unique talents, and very expressive,” King says of her musical friends. Her co-producers, of course, offer special inspiration. “They really care about doing what’s right for the song,” she says. “I like that. When I work with them, when we’re done, I feel like I really found myself.”

She’s also found out how to build quite a fire — one so strong, it’s gonna burn for a long, long time.

A big THANK YOU to the Texas Commission on the Arts
for sponsoring tonight's performance.

"Elegant, touching, and articulate."
- Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

Gretchen Peters
Gretchen Peters
ListenWatchWebsite
The title of Gretchen Peters’ new Hello Cruel World is a pun on the famed exit line – a joke that, like the lovely melodies and deliciously textured arrangements framing these 11 songs – sweetens this captivating music spun from a year of turmoil. The Grammy nominated singer-songwriter from Nashville calls Hello Cruel World her “most close-to-the-bone work, written at a time when I felt absolutely fearless about telling the truth.” Peters and her guest Rodney Crowell sing, “life is still a beautiful disaster,” on “Dark Angel.” But Peters keeps the accent on the “beautiful” throughout her ninth disc, with both her poetic language and the spare, evocative sounds she created in the studio to support her organic story-telling.

Praise for Hello Cruel World:

"The album of her career."- NPR All Things Considered

"Expertly and sincerely free of cliches or false romantic notions about any subject it addresses, its large spiritual truths are revealed in the only way they matter: small, intimate experiences. This album comes to the listener as a gift wrapped in tattered paper, making it all the more precious to receive." -Thom Jurek, AllMusic.com

Stephanie Urbina Jones
Stephanie Urbina Jones
ListenWatchWebsite
Stephanie Urbina Jones was born in a bi-cultural home in San Antonio, Texas where she grew up hearing sounds from both sides of the border. Her Texicana tapestry of music combines her life experiences and the sounds that influenced her soul. From country rock to latin blues-pop, she has created a style all her own. This unique artist is poised to be the very first Hispanic- American female to break through country music. Drawing from her passion to honor her heritage through her music she became the first independent female to reach #1 on the Texas Music chart.

Her writing is fiery yet vulnerable, intelligent yet simple and down right funny at times with a feisty spicy rockin' edge that comes from living and humbly learning a lot from her own life's lessons. Through years of experience on the road she has become a master of storytelling taking her audiences on a road trip through their own lives and emotions through song.



Jones has a fiery heart and passion to use her gifts to help and empower others. Her single and video entitled "I'm Not A Pinata" shot at the world famous honky tonk Billy Bob's in Ft. Worth , spawned her working with CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) and doing PSA's to help raise awareness and funds to give children a voice. Currently her self-penned song "Revolucion en Mi Corazon" is being used as a call to action in Los Angeles for the American Diabetes Association to help empower latinos with information, education and the medical help they need.

Greezy Wheels
Greezy Wheels
ListenWatchWebsite
Greezy Wheels, to many the "Grateful Dead of Texas," and members of the Texas Music Hall Of Fame, have been blowing things up in Austin since the days of the legendary Armadillo World Headquarters, and they are still blowing it up good in 2013. Founding Greezy Wheels members - Cleve, Lissa and Sweet Mary Hattersley - still lead the band, which includes thirteen year veteran, Penny Jo Pullus, on back-up vocals, and John Bush(Edie Brickell And the New Bohemians, Critters Buggin) on drums. John is in his sixth year with the band. He and Cleve co-produced Kitty Cat Jesus (and the previous record, Gone Greezy) at John's Cicada Moon Studios.
The Wheels have recently added two extremely exciting new members to the fold. Joining his former bandmate John, New Bohemians bassist, Brad Houser, brings muscle, chops and (oh by the way) horns to the section. And from the magnificent 7 Walkers, the Willie Nelson family, and many others, comes super keyboardist, trombone and harp player, Matt Hubbard. Greezy Wheels, always at the center of musical adventure, have found yet another amazing nexus for exploration.
The Wheels were one of the first Austin acts ever signed to a major label (London), and they continue to release CD's on their own label, MaHatMa Records. Their release in 2011, 'Gone Greezy,' had the highest debut of the week in Americana radio and remained on the Americana charts all summer.

“There is perhaps no greater influence on modern
Texas Music than Walt Wilkins.”-Galleywinter.com

Walt Wilkins
& The Mystiqueros

Walt  Wilkins

ListenWatchWebsite
San Antonio-born Walt Wilkins has been called a genius, more than once, and a writer the caliber of John Steinbeck and his voice as comfortable as a pair of old blue jeans, and he is, and has, all of that. His crafting of story-songs, hard-edged vocals to sing them and a plaintive guitar have made him a fixture of the Texas music scene (and Nashville before that). He’s put his magical touch on recordings by new and veteran artists, too many to count.

Like Kevin Welch, Townes Van Zant and Guy Clark and Hank Cochran before him, Walt Wilkins became known as a songwriter's songwriter, the kind of songwriter that other songwriters admire and hope to be some day. His economy of words has lead his songs to be recorded by the likes of Pat Green, Ty Herndon, Pam Tillis, Steve Azar, Eric Church, Kellie Pickler, and Kenny Rogers, to name but a few of the A-list artists to cut his songs.

Walt has churned multi-miles beneath his wheels and gathered up the ragged thoughts and discarded pearls that help him to render the distinctive images and characters that follow. His songwriting is southern roots and road-worn gospel and the deep creases and genuine smile help to authenticate the honesty of his witnessing.

Ellis Paul is one of the leading voices in American songwriting and one of the top songwriters to emerge out of the fertile Boston folk scene. He helped create a movement that revitalized the national acoustic circuit with an urban, literate, folk rock style that helped renew interest in the genre in the 90's. His charismatic, personally authentic performance style has influenced a generation of artists away from the artifice of pop, and closer towards the realness of folk.

Over the past two decades Paul has garnered numerous honors including 14 Boston Music Awards, second only to Aerosmith. He has performed with countless acclaimed musicians, including Patty Griffin, John Mayer, Ani Difranco, John Prine, Sugarland, and at the request of Woody’s daughter Nora Guthrie and after several trips to the Woody Guthrie archives, Ellis even has a co-write with Woody, their song “God’s Promise”.

"Wise, tender, brilliant and biting, Ellis is one of our best human compasses, marking in melodies and poems where we've been and where we might go if we so choose to. Personally Ellis, I'm goin' where you're goin'" --Nora Guthrie (Woody Guthrie's daughter)

Ruben V
Ruben V
ListenWebsite
Ruben V is an accomplished artist. He’s released eight solo CDs, 14 group albums and averages over 120 shows a year. He is a guitar player, songwriter, producer and family man. He’s built a huge following of Ruben V Band fans – all while keeping a sense of humor and a genuine Texas charm.

But first and foremost, there is the music. It’s a fresh, smooth blend of blues, Latin, soul, and rock. It’s an ambitious mix of the music that moves him and in his skillful hands, becomes a truly energizing and enjoyable experience. The result is stylistically different from his peers – it’s alluring, soulful, fun and mature. As he says, “it’s everything I love about music.”

For a man who would turn out to be such a celebrated guitar player, Ruben was self-taught – old school style. “I would slow down our old 45 albums on the record player and learn that way. I was also front and center at every concert – watching and listening. Then it was just hitting the road. There’s no better way to learn.” Every show is different; Ruben has a vast catalog of songs to pull from. They may play a familiar song but change the tempo or instruments. The Ruben V shows become enlivened jams inciting the audience into a musical frenzy. It keeps the audience entertained and coming back for more.
