The Official "Music Ambassador of Texas"
Gary P. Nunn
Solo Acoustic Show!
Gary P. Nunn
ListenWatchWebsite
Gary P. Nunn has been TAKING TEXAS TO THE COUNTRY and Texas country to the world for some 40 years now, establishing himself as an icon of Lone Star music. A founding father of the progressive country movement out of Austin in the 1970s that changed the face of popular music, Nunn is also an independent music pioneer who continues to oversee his own record label and song publishing companies, manage his own career (with the help of his wife Ruth), and play most every weekend at top music venues throughout Texas and beyond. His composition “London Homesick Blues” — with its internationally known “I wanna go home with the Armadillo” chorus — is a signature Texas country song that was the theme for the PBS concert TV show “Austin City Limits” for nearly three decades. It’s no wonder that All Music Guide hails him as “a Texas music institution.”

Nunn was a key figure in The Lost Gonzo Band when they recorded Jerry Jeff Walker’s landmark ¡Viva Terlingua! album, on which “London Homesick Blues” was a breakout hit. Nunn’s own songs have always served him well, being recorded by stars like Willie Nelson (“The Last Thing I Needed, The First Thing This Morning”)which hit #2, Rosanne Cash (“Couldn’t Do Nothing’ Right”), which hit #15 on the country singles charts), David Allen Coe and many other artists.

And now, more than half a century since he first started playing music, Nunn enthuses, “I’m having more fun now than ever. It just feels good. When you have a great band behind you and the audience is out there on the dance floor, you just say, ‘Yeah! This the reason I got into this in the first place.’ I love it more than ever.”

The King of Texas-Style Piano
Ezra Charles - The Story of Boogie Woogie
Ezra Charles

ListenWatchWebsite
Ezra Charles has been one of the most popular piano players in Texas for over thirty years, touring with the original-music horn band he fronted everywhere from the southwest U.S., to Italy and Ecuador. The band’s most memorable trademarks were his fiery piano style and his all-girl horn section.

With the end of that era at hand, Ezra revealed a new presentation he calls “The Story of Boogie Woogie.” This show runs about two hours, during which he not only performs many of the classic piano pieces that define that genre, he also explains in fascinating detail how it was created in Texas lumber camps in the 1880’s and spread all over the world.

"Nobody doesn't like boogie woogie!" is Ezra Charles' jumping-off point, as he weaves the history of this bouncing, jiving piano format. Peppering the dialogue with his own stories of personal interaction with the Masters, he performs many of the most famous standards of this genre as he explains the relationship between Blues, Jazz, Ragtime and what was originally called "Texas-Style Piano." Accompanied by his son Jakob on percussion, they re-create the excitement of this favorite piano sound from a century ago.

Capping a career in which he has been honored with seven Houston Press Awards for Best Keyboards, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the San Antonio Blues Society, as well as appearances in the International Blues Competition in Memphis, his new one-man show, "The Story of Boogie Woogie," is a runaway success, already selling out ten appearances during the last year. Audiences are delighted by his combination of virtuoso performances of classic Boogie Woogie standards with a spell-binding narrative of the origins on this musical form, strong on the Texas history aspects. He brings to the stage an educated presentation, well-suited to the tastes of sophisticated music lovers who are interested in the best of Texas musical roots.Can't join us in person?

Esteemed Songwriters Share the Stage
Drew Kennedy
& Kelley Mickwee

Drew Kennedy

ListenWatchWebsite
Kelley Mickwee

ListenWatchWebsite
Drew Kennedy released his seventh album, called Sad Songs Happily Played, in 2014. It is a double disc live album that landed Drew on several "Best of 2014" lists for its stunning simplicity...just Drew, his guitar, and his thoughtful, powerful songs. The live record follows up 2013's Wide Listener, a release heralded by Lone Star Music in this review: "Albums like Wide Listener (his sixth) that demand and reward acute attention to every word. This is very much a sit back (or lay down) and listen kind of record, impeccably played and sung…and filled with languid melodies more comfortable than outright catchy…it rings honest and true of heart.” Drew lives in New Braunfels, Texas with his wife, son, 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).

When Kelley Mickwee says she’s “starting from scratch” as a solo artist, take it for the sincere humility/frankness it is — but be sure to chase it with a big pinch of salt, too. Because as new as she may be to this whole “solo thing,” the Memphis-born, Austin-based Mickwee is by no means a newbie to the big wide world of Americana music. Not long after college, she spent seven years touring and recording as part of the rootsy duo Jed and Kelley, and chased that with a solid five years as a core member of the acclaimed Texas all-girl folk-country band the Trishas. When the four Trishas decided to take an open-ended hiatus a year after releasing their full-length debut, 2012’s delightful High, Wide and Handsome, Mickwee wasted no time in embarking on her own journey of musical self-discovery — beginning with a trip back to her Tennessee hometown to cut a handful of tracks with her dream band of Memphis musicians. The results are rooted in Americana and the duskier, groovier side of the singer-songwriter genre but above all steeped in organic, Southern soul reminiscent of classic Stax sides. Call it “Mickwee in Memphis.” Or better yet, call it the sound of an artist pushed by necessity into reinventing herself — and coming away with the best music she’s made to date. And if that’s just Mickwee “starting from scratch,” rest assured there’s plenty more to come. Can't join us in person? Watch the live online broadcast!

Ray Prim: Imagine Ben Harper and Ray Lamontagne heading over to Abbey Road in a cadillac convertible to pick up John Lennon and Paul Mccartney so they can catch the tail end of The Reverend Al Green's sermon. There was no mistaking Ray Prim’s destiny as a child: he was born to make music. With lyrics that seep into your soul and acoustics that lovingly strum each song so they are firmly imprinted in your mind, Ray passionately enforces what it takes to be a great Singer-Songwriter. His melody-based approach sweeps you through a variety of emotions that touch on all of life’s great joys and tragedies, moments that echo within each of us that will leave you smiling with nostalgia.

Ray’s live shows are inspiring collaborations where you can see and hear the mutual respect each person has for making sounds that touch your heart, connecting with the audience to ensure they are swaying along by the end of each song. From ‘This Ain’t Rocket Science’ to his latest album ‘It Take a Village to Make a Record’, Ray’s song-writing skills are constantly evolving, soaking up stories and experiences that ultimately contribute to music that will resonate eternally.

Tom Meny: As the title of his debut album suggests, Austin, Texas-based singer-songwriter Tom Meny is definitely on his way. In May of 2015, Tom Meny was a winner of the prestigious New Folk Competition at the world famous Kerrville Folk Festival. To date, Tom Meny has 2 million YouTube video views.

The follow-up to his 2013 debut is an acoustic EP, released in October of 2015. Tom Meny's EP "Songs I Do" includes 6 new songs recorded in a way that best represents an authentic live solo performance. Jaimee Harris and Ray Prim's harmonies add depth and soul to a very unique collection of songs. "Higher Than The Moon" Is a lullaby co-written and performed with Aly Tadros. Co-produced by Meny, Tim Casterline, and Ray Prim... "Songs I Do" is a timeless collection that will transport you to an acoustic listening room, house concert or theater show.

"Good lord this man can sing." - DFW.com
Guy Forsyth
Guy Forsyth
ListenWatchWebsite
Austin’s Guy Forsyth has long enjoyed praise for his dazzling live shows and rich Americana and Blues roots sound. Forsyth (vocals, acoustic, electric & slide guitar, harmonica, ukulele, singing saw) usually performs with his band, but has been known to perform as a solo artist, and in various incarnations including a duo with Oliver Steck (Bob Schneider’s band). His songs incorporate a unique mixture of styles and his sound is at once polished, raw, compelling and irresistibly rump-shaking.

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.” And he struck out to learn it.

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.

"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. In a musical tribute to his mentors, the title track, which features Victor Wooten (Béla Fleck and the Flecktones) on bass and vocals, explains this mission and provides the backdrop as Loomis reaches new musical heights on a record that will ignite fires in those who live for funk & soul, rock, and a satisfying dose of the blues. "When I was coming up in the music scene, 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. Loomis and crew shine on stage proving his music is best experienced in person, where one can see and hear its intended splendor.

Showing no signs of stopping, and always aiming to follow advice from Bo Diddley to “innovate, don’t imitate,” GIVE IT BACK paves the way for Hamilton Loomis to introduce more of his modern sound and energetic musical style. It also provides a glimpse into this talented artist’s philosophy on life, a message alone that is worth its weight in gold records!

Jamie Lin Wilson

ListenWatchWebsite
JON DEE GRAHAM: "Graham's original songs are what gets his name written in big letters in the sky. He's one of the best Texas songwriters ever, and Lord only knows why he isn't talked about in the same sentences as Willie Nelson and Townes Van Zandt."- Bill Bentley

- The only person to be inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame 3 times
- Member of the legendary band The True Believers
- Collaborated with countless legends of rock including Alejandro Escovedo, Ry Cooder, Mike Campbell (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers), Jim Dickinson (The Rolling Stones), Jim Keltner (Bob Dylan, George Harrison), Jack Ingram, Kelly Willis, John Hiatt, John Doe (X), and Michelle Shocked.
- Jon Dee's songs have been covered by Patty Smyth, James McMurtry, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Patty Griffin, and Alejandro Escovedo, among others.

JAMIE WILSON: When describing Jamie Wilson's voice, two aspects come to mind: that honeyed tenor twang that's become known as one of the sweetest instruments in modern folk music, and that poignant, poetic, down-to-earth point of view she brings to her songwriting. The spotlight shines brighter than ever on both with Holidays & Wedding Rings, her upcoming January 2015 release. Even fans may be surprised to realize it’s the first full-length solo album from one of brightest and busiest stars in her recent years amid the folk/Americana/independent country music scene. Jamie broke into the Texas country/folk scene as one of the co-lead vocalists of the Gougers before the band gradually gave way to the higher-profile musical adventures with The Trishas, an all-female singer-songwriter band that has toured through some of the state and nation's best venues. Scoring one of the best albums of 2012 with "High Wide & Handsome,” the Trishas lit up the genre for a few years while always leaving Wilson room for solo gigs, guest spots on over a dozen albums by now, and song-swaps with like-minded artists all over Texas and beyond. Multiple approaches, countless gigs, several years and nearly a million miles into what promises to be a grand career, Jamie Wilson not only runs with a good crowd: she never fails to stand out.

Joe King Carrasco

Known as the King of Tex-Mex rock and roll, Joe King Carrasco, creates a stylistic borderland of pop rock and Latin rhythms. His cross-cultural stew blends cumbias, vamp, salsa, surf, reggae, blues and Latin-tinged polkas. In 2003, Joe King Carrasco was inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame and in 2012 Joe was inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame for a second time with his band The Crowns. The Academy of Texas Music awarded Joe King Carrasco a Lifetime Achievement Award in March of 2012, and he gave them a taste of his endless energy when he played as the closing act at the award ceremonies running through the audience only to end up back on stage taking a leap from the 4 foot drum rise while still playing his guitar. In March of 2013, Joe was honored with the Entertainer of the Year Award by the Academy of Texas Music.

Danny B Harvey

As a guitarist, producer and composer Danny has played and recorded with such great artists as Levi Dexter, Tim Polecat, Johnny Ramone, Nancy Sinatra, Lemmy Kilmister, Lee Rocker, Slim Jim Phantom, Linda Gail Lewis and Wanda Jackson. Vintage Guitar Magazine says, "Harvey mixes chords, sliding runs and open-string chromatic hammer-ons that’ll have you not only thinking of giving up the guitar, but deny you’ve ever even picked one up!“

Linda Gail Lewis

Linda started touring with her brother, Jerry Lee Lewis, when she was about 14 years old. Linda’s solo music career has soared and is most often found in Europe at the big festivals such as Festival Country Rendez-Vous de Craponne, France.

"Pike is one of those singers whom you simply can't take your eyes (or ears) away from." - Edge Media
Patrice Pike
Patrice Pike
ListenWatchWebsite
Patrice Pike burst on to the music scene as the electric front woman for the seminal Austin jam band Sister Seven. She was honing her creativity as a vocalist and songwriter at Booker T. Washington school for performing and visual arts as well as the legendary music programs at the University of North Texas when she realized all of her mentors were graduating from programs and then trying to make a living on stage and in the studio. She left her entrepreneurial scholarship in the school bank account and started Little Sister that soon became Sister Seven. Soon after she co-wrote and sang Sister Seven’s top 10 Billboard hit “Know What You Mean”.

Following the highly publicized industry shake up at Arista Records with Clive Davis’ departure, Sister Seven disbanded and Patrice went on to begin her solo career with her album Fencing Under Fire in the top 10 most added on AAA radio for multiple weeks.

Her solo material has taken an increasingly narrative turn, while her sound has moved steadily in the direction of an eclectic mix of Rock and Soul topped with a tinge of World Music flavors. Patrice effortlessly moves from tightly woven rhythm guitar to percussion, to drum kit on stage never dropping a beat of her fierce but silky lead vocals. Over the past decade she has independently released five acclaimed solo records, showcasing her socially astute, literate lyrics alongside her powerful vocals. In 2007 she became the youngest member of the Austin/Texas Music Hall of Fame, inducted alongside Lucinda Williams.

Long a respected social and environmental activist, she is the co-founder of the Step Onward Foundation (formerly Grace Foundation USA), an organization that provides services for young adult survivors of homelessness. An accomplished snowboarder and runner, she continues to travel the globe extensively. She has a disciplined meditation practice, and teaches certified Integrative Yoga therapy for non-profit organizations. In short, she leads a rich, full, varied, exciting, rewarding life that looks absolutely nothing like what she was aiming for when she embarked on her journey in music. If you listen, you can hear each strand in her lyrics and in her voice. Twenty years in, she’s much more than one of the most dynamic live performers in the world; she’s an artist of substance with a compelling life story that is only beginning to unfold.

"I used to skip my own gigs to go watch Adam...by far my favorite." - Hayes Carll
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."

2016 Blues Music Award Winner
Acoustic Artist of the Year

Doug MacLeod
Doug Macleod
ListenWatchWebsite
Doug MacLeod is one of the last remaining bluesmen who learned from the old masters, lived the music, survived the life and carries forward that valuable tradition. Within the blues world, MacLeod is known for his superb songwriting, guitar wizardry, warm soulful vocals, wit and unforgettable live performances. At the heart of this is his knack for storytelling, bringing characters from the faceless to the legendary to strikingly real life.

During the last ten years most of Doug's activities have been in Southern California (he is living in LA) or outside the US in Europe, Canada and Australia. But finally the US media, venues and audiences are starting to realize what they have been missing. In recent years Doug played several prestigious US blues & folk festivals, was nominated for Blues Music Award a few years in a row and was invited for XM Radio three times.

"Aside from being one of the finest guitar players in the business, MacLeod really connects with his audience. His sets are more than music. They are "homegrown lessons" in life and love. . . .MacLeod is one of the finest songwriters, storytellers and performers in the blues. . . . In a world intoxicated with electric-everything MacLeod is preserving a lost art... A must for any serious fan of the blues and any soul who needs the healing of the blues." - Sing Out (USA)

An Acoustic Evening With
Radney Foster

Radney Foster
ListenWatchWebsite
“I’m always trying to find a little piece of the truth,” says Texas singer-songwriter Radney Foster. With Everything I Should Have Said, the truth is laid bare. His first collection of new songs in 5 years opens with “Whose Heart You Wreck,” a stormy lament to a fickle muse and closes with the title track, an unflinching apology for things done and left undone.

Considered an elder statesman of Texas singer-songwriters, Foster has been a friend and mentor to many younger artists on the Texas scene. He’s written and produced songs for Randy Rogers, Jack Ingram, Kacey Musgraves, Wade Bowen, Josh Abbott, Pat Green, Cory Morrow and many others. His songs are regularly mined by superstar acts like Keith Urban (“Raining on Sunday,” “I’m In,”), Sara Evans (“Real Fine Place,” “Revival”) and the Dixie Chicks (“Godspeed”).

Foster grew up in two worlds – herding cattle on horseback at his grandfather’s East Texas ranch in the summers and hunkering over a transistor radio in West Texas hometown, listening to border radio. “My house in Del Rio was a mile from Mexico, so I heard everything growing up – from country to conjunto.” That hybrid of influences may be why Foster’s always been tough to categorize; his first success was with the seminal country/cowpunk duo Foster & Lloyd, whose first single, “Crazy Over You,” went straight to #1. His subsequent solo albums told tales through a honky tonk lens and yielded enduring hits “Just Call Me Lonesome” and “Nobody Wins.” Throughout his 30 year career, Foster has continuously stretched the boundaries. “I strive to challenge myself as a writer, a musician and a singer everyday.” As his voice has deepened and grown richer, so, it seems, has his focus. These are the songs of a full-grown man, who long ago left fear by the side of the road.
