An original and diverse spin on old time
folk and jug band music...

Sad Daddy
Sad Daddy
ListenWatchWebsite
Sad Daddy began as the meeting of three musical minds -- Brian Martin (guitar), Melissa Carper (bass), and Joe Sundell (banjo). The dynamic songwriting of the original three members carried the group's 2010 self-titled release and won them a loyal following in and around the great state of Arkansas. However, with Carper and Sundell residing in Austin, TX and Martin far away in Ozark country the group's opportunities for collaboration and performance were few and far between. Now with the original members all back in Arkansas as well as the addition of standout fidller Rebecca Patek, Sad Daddy is embarking on the next chapter of their musical journey, with a follow up album in the works and a full schedule of tour dates to go with. While Sad Daddy's musicianship and stagecraft are worthy of mention, the songwriting of Martin, Carper, and Sundell, remains the cornerstone of the group's allure and allows them to connect with a wide range of audiences.

"Vocals blending like milk and honey, forming a sound they coin as Americana Soul." - No Depression
Freddy & Francine
Freddy & Francine
ListenWatchWebsite
“Love and marriage, love and marriage, go together like a horse and carriage...” or at least that’s what Frank Sinatra pointed out in that familiar standard, “Love and Marriage.” So credit Freddy & Francine for putting a new spin on that sage advice, suggesting instead, “Love and music, love and music, go together like...” (fill in your own lyric here). With due apologies to the original songwriter, that meshing of the personal and professional has always been integral to their career. Freddy & Francine, or, as they’re known to family and friends, Lee Ferris and Bianca Caruso, have built a career that’s been intertwined with their feelings for both their music and each other.

The duo’s new album, aptly entitled Gung Ho, offers a celebration of sorts, one that now only finds the couple reunited after going their separate ways, but also on the verge of ascending the next plateau. Recorded -- where else -- at Gung-Ho Studio in Eugene Oregon with an all star cast of players that includes renowned producer and multi-instrumentalist Todd Sickafoose (Anais Mitchell, Ani DiFranci), drummer Ted Poor (Andrew Bird, Bill Frisell), guitarist Kyle Sanna (Chris Thile, Yo Yo Ma) and keyboardist Rob Burger (Lucinda Williams, Ryan Adams, Rufus Wainwright), it purveys a joyful, uplifting, harmony-drenched sound that reflects their commitment to Americana, and to each other. Echoes of Lone Bellow, the Civil Wars and the Swell Season are apparent in its grooves, but the inspiration, originality and enthusiasm are obviously their own.

Ruthie Foster
Grammy Nominated Blues Artist
Ruthie Foster
ListenWatchWebsite
Ruthie Foster was born in the small rural town of Gause, TX. Raised in a family of gospel singers, Ruthie first learned to sing during worship services at her community church. With a chapel-bred bravado trained on the works of powerful women such as Mavis Staples and Aretha Franklin, her sound grew into an inspired blend of blues, folk and gospel.

Ruthie has released seven albums over the past twelve years. Ruthie’s studio album releases on Blue Corn Music include Runaway Soul in 2002, The Phenomenal Ruthie Foster in 2007, The Truth According to Ruthie Foster in 2009, Let It Burn in 2012 and Promise of a Brand New Day in 2014. The latter three were all nominated for Grammy Awards in the category of Best Blues Album. She has also released two live albums, Stages in 2004 and Live At Antone’s, a CD and DVD release, in 2011.

Ruthie’s career also reaches beyond her own releases and performances. She has collaborated on stage with artists ranging from Bonnie Raitt to The Allman Brothers to Susan Tedeschi, and has recorded tracks with Warren Haynes, Big Head Todd, and The Blind Boys of Alabama, among others. Ruthie has also been featured both as an actress, with a guest appearance on NBC’s television series Revolution, and as a classical vocalist, with Austin’s prestigious vocal ensemble Conspirare. To date, Ruthie’s artistry and creative output have both been lauded with accolades on regional and national platforms. Outside of her 2010, 2012 and 2014 Grammy nominations, she earned six consecutive Blues Music Awards, plus an Austin Music Award for Best Female Vocalist and a Living Blues Critics’ Award for Female Blues Artist of the Year. And those are just some highlights of her awards history.

"A raspy-voiced, Townes-versed Elvis Costello with an endearingly shaggy, loose-limbed musical swagger." - Lonestar Music
Beaver Nelson
Beaver Nelson
ListenWatchWebsite
Thoughtful, philosophical singer/songwriter Beaver Nelson has long sought to locate deeper truths, to shape order from the puzzles life puts forward, both past and present. He explained to Rolling Stone: "I'm pretty obsessed with the notion of time," he says. "It's the basic human problem. What time means and its effect on us and the fact that you can't own it. It's here, then it's gone—you screw up and you don't get it back." On his new album Positive, Nelson continues to reflect in a collection of songs written over the span of his career, brimming with intelligence, humor and his trademark pop hooks. Produced by his longtime cohort, Scrappy Jud Newcomb (Patty Griffin, Slaid Cleaves, Ian McLagan's Bump Band) in Marfa and Austin, there are new songs ("Positive", "It Ain't Yours") and some written as early as '94 ("Willing and Able") and '95 ("Bad Movie").

Hailed as a prodigy by Rolling Stone at the tender age of 19, Beaver has released 7 albums since then, but not before getting churned through the major label blender first. By the age of 22 he had two failed record deals and had seen enough of that world to back away. He fronted a rock band for years before returning to solo performance and focusing on songwriting in the wake of the passing of his idol, Townes Van Zandt.

Nelson began playing guitar at 14 and was introduced to Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, Lou Reed and Bruce Springsteen by two of his camp counselors. He began to write and record songs, assembling handmade cassettes to sell to friends. He began exploring the Austin open mic scene during high school, driving up from his home in Houston. The vibrant and ultra-supportive scene introduced him to Jimmy La Fave, Jo Carol Pierce and others as well as Troy Campbell and Scrappy Jud Newcomb, members of the great Austin rock band Loose Diamonds.

By the early 90s he was touring and beginning the frustrating major label period in his life, with deals that fell through and a shelved album that did not sound "grunge" enough for the A&R flacks. By the time he signed with Austin-based Freedom Records and released his debut, he had emerged as one of "the most promising writers of the entire decade," according to AllMusic.com. His music has been feted in Rolling Stone, Texas Monthly, Mojo and No Depression, among many others.

Kansas City Blues Stars
Katy Guillen
& The Girls

Katy Guillen & The Girls
ListenWatchWebsite
Katy Guillen and The Girls may have deep roots in the blues, thanks to leader Guillen’s considerable skills and long history as a blues guitarist, but this trio—Katy Guillen (guitar, vocals), Claire Adams (bass, vocals), and Stephanie Williams (drums)—brings a wide range of talents and tastes to the band’s sound. Guillen’s searing and lively licks, William’s heavy, driving drums, and Adams’s rock-solid bass create a dense sonic background for Guillen’s honest and powerful lyrics, delivered with soul and verve and complemented by Adams’s intense harmonies.

Guillen began participating in blues jams in the Kansas City area at age 14, and within a few years she was playing as a featured guest with local blues legends and seasoned veterans like John Paul’s Flying Circus, but she and The Girls don’t stop there. Their combined experiences playing in bands with genres ranging from baroque pop to Appalachian acoustic folk to classic rock ’n roll, as well as Guillen’s education in traditional Flamenco guitar, have added depth to their musical vocabulary and allowed them to shape a sound all their own.

In the midst of a non-stop performance schedule, they released their first full-length album in September 2014. 90.9 The Bridge celebrated the release by featuring KG&G and their single “Don’t Get Bitter” in their Local 909 Series. Kansas City’s preeminent alternative weekly, The Pitch, awarded them with Best Emerging Artist at their 2014 Music Awards. Katy Guillen and the Girls plan to continue writing, performing, and touring into 2015 and beyond. Their already sizable fanbase grows with every stop they make, allowing them to spread their infectious and original mix of classic American genres from the heartland of Kansas City to music lovers around the world.Can't join us in person?

When Texas and Canada meet, great songs happen.
Adam Carroll
& 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."

"Phil is a hipster madman Huck Finn

Phil Lee
Phil  Lee

ListenWatchWebsite
Before he settled in to becoming one of the best songwriters in captivity Phil Lee spent a couple of decades playing drums, driving trucks, dumping motorcycles, hauling equipment, stealing hearts, eluding the authorities and raising Cain. By the time most artists get to their third or fourth album they are down to the material that didn’t make the cut for the first two. It is no mean feat to make four albums that stand on their own each one as good as the last yet also better in some way. It’s a pretty mighty achievement. Somehow, Phil Lee, knife-thrower, raconteur, rapscallion and bon vivant and the pride of Durham, North Carolina, has pulled it off.

All this while keeping true to his unique and singular mission; to write songs that try to make sense out of this world, open some eyes, call out some fools and ring out some hard truths. Yet, admirable as such pursuits may be he’s simply being true to who he is. Phil Lee’s music will make you think and laugh and maybe shed a tear or two but it also provides hours of playtime fun because all of those things are part of the package. He couldn’t do it any other way.

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.

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.

Slim Bawb & The Fabulous Stumpgrinders
ListenWatchWebsite
There isn't anything Slim Bawb can’t play and if he couldn’t use his hands, well, he’s got that covered too. He’s a singer,songwriter and plays all things baring strings to playing bass with his feet. Yes, we said feet.

Slim Bawb or aka Bob Pearce is a native Californian who lives in New Braunfels,Texas and has a swampy-blues Louisiana sound, that you would think, just arose out of the fog off the banks of the Mississippi. His crew is called “The Fabulous Stumpgrinders” - all coming together to capture that “swamp” sound faster than an alligator’s snapping jaws. A musical concoction of country, funk, blues and more. Playing with his feet “lefty” and “stinky” on his Livid Custom “boot bass”, Slim Bawb has quite an original way of serving up his Lousiana swamp-style with a side of gumbo and some Cajun cornbread to soak it up.

"Slim Bawb is like a hearty homebrew when the usual generic light beer doesn’t do the trick anymore." - TXMusicTV

Bugle Boy Talent Trust Artist
Woody Russell
Woody Russell

ListenWatchWebsite
Critically acclaimed, award winning vocalist, guitarist and composer, Woody Russell will share songs from his latest release "Carry It Up". The Austin, Texas based Russell has always been a genre-blurring artist and Carry It Up is no exception.

As a lyricist, Woody digs deep in to intimate narratives and is equally comfortable addressing a broader social consciousness. The album focuses on themes of love, compassion, tolerance, respect and the quest for all of the aforementioned. There is no mistake that Russell possesses a voice which places him as a frontrunner on the jazzier side of the singer-songwriter scene. And, not unlike a primary influence, Van Morrison, he navigates the sound of his words with a rhythmic precision and melodic expression akin to a jazz improviser. Then there’s his guitar playing, which Blues Revue likened to “the fearlessness of Jeff Beck”.

Carry It Up is a lush, complex recording with a soul-jazz heart, created by a master craftsman and his superb band.

"Part of the same Lone Star constellation as Guy Clark, Kristofferson, Doug Sahm and Freddy Fender."

ListenWatchWebsite
MICHAEL O'CONNOR

In 2010, after well over 20 years of plying his trade in dive bars, listening rooms, theaters and festival stages across America and Europe, journeyman Texas songwriter and guitar player Michael O’Connor finally got his due. Or at the very least, a very fine next best thing: his very own star on the South Texas Music Walk of Fame — located right in O’Connor’s hometown of Corpus Christi. O’Connor’s name is now part of the same Lone Star constellation as such Texas legends as Guy Clark, Kris Kristofferson, and the late Doug Sahm and Freddy Fender.

Now based in Denver, O’Connor is pulling away from the sideman trip, but not slamming those doors behind him. “At one time I was in eight bands,” he said, laughing. “I had something to prove when I was younger. Now it’s more important to me to play my gigs.” He didn’t trample his Texas roots. His 2015 release “Bloodshot Vagabond” was recorded in Houston with producer/bassist Jack Saunders and drummer Rick Richards. The songs, most penned by O’Connor, some co-written with Adam Carroll and with fellow top-flight accompanist Jeff Plankenhorn, are gritty and greasy, so is the music; an amalgam of rock ‘n’ roll, blues and acoustic music with a drill-bit backbone.

Jackie Venson
Jackie Venson
ListenWatchWebsite
It is legend that during a drunken back-alley brawl, Jackie Venson punched Pluto straight out of planetary existence.

Venson’s “…astonishing mix of raw soul, superb musicianship and laid back grace…” (Austin American Statesman) has been compared to the likes of Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse and fellow Austin native Gary Clark, Jr. Originally a classical pianist, Venson picked up the guitar and made the giant leap from the tradition of classical music to the raw and gritty blues. She is a multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter with an out of this world voice. Venson knows music like the back of her hand with 17 years of piano-smashing skills, 8 years of vocally seducing angels, 8 years of inspired songwriting and 4 years of non-stop guitar shredding. (It is scientific fact that she can sleep and rock at the same time.)

Venson spent her college years at Berklee College of Music where she received her Bachelor of Arts in Composition and Studio Production. In recognition of her dedication to her craft, Bestfan.com said “Venson is no dilettante, wannabe performer, however a real staple of what a musician can achieve when they put in their 10,000 hours for both musical schooling, and late night pub sessions for practical honing.”

Her live performances revisits what makes music so powerful: emotion and passion. She thrives without the flash, instead favoring a clean sound, genuine soul, and meaningful connection with her audience. Music is not only what Venson does – but also defines who she is and reminds her where she wants to be: performing.

Multi-million selling Songwriter
Alex Harvey
Alex Harvey
ListenWatchWebsite
You might call him Delta Blues or Country Rock; depending on the song he is singing, but the one consistent thread is definitely "SOUL." Alex Harvey was born and raised in Delta country, just outside of Memphis, TN. With a multitude of influences such as the Blues his neighbors used to play on their porches, Country his mother loved, Big Band Swing his father favored, splashes of Rock and Roll and Folk and just when you think you've got a pot full of gris gris out comes deep, intimate, soulful songs like "Rueben James" and "Delta Dawn." It's no wonder he is hard to put into one category.

Alex has been successful throughout the years, selling over 200 million recordings; each recorded by a diversity of performers as his list of influences. Artists such as Sammy Davis, Jr., Henry Mancini, Andy Williams, Eydie Gorme', Peggy Lee and Andre Constelanetz have recorded songs of his which were written for film. Other artists like Bette Midler, Tanya Tucker, Willie Nelson, Billy Ray Cyrus, Jimmy Buffet and many more have been successful in their own careers utilizing one or several of Alex’s songs; Kenny Rogers recorded over 17 of his.

His passion for music has crossed over to gaining recognition as an actor; in both films as well as television: “Fire Down Below” starring Steven Segall, “Country”, Jessica Lange, “The Long Summer of George Adams, James Garner, “Dallas”, “Walker Texas Ranger”, “Days of Our Lives”, and many others. Yet, even with a substantial career in the film and television industry, this talented artist could not deny his heart for music; his true love which called him home. He continues to work hard to be worthy of the ministry it has spawned. Alex sheds light on his next move by saying, "I need to deliver the message...that really moves me. I'm just gonna pray and watch for God's next opening door."
