Ruthie Foster

ListenWatchWebsite
Ruthie Foster has been nominated for the Koko Taylor Award, along with her Grammy Nomination for “Promise of a Brand New Day”.

From houses of worship to houses of blues, Ruthie Foster has always been a rafter-rattler. And with a soul-filled voice honed in Texas churches, she can move audiences to tears or ecstasy — sometimes in a single song. Her last two albums, 2009’s The Truth According to Ruthie Foster and 2012’s Let It Burn, moved the Recording Academy to deliver Best Blues Album Grammy nominations.

From 2011 to 2013 she also earned three 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. Ruthie is currently touring in support of her her latest, Promise of a Brand New Day produced by Meshell Ndegeocello.

“Ruthie's voice is such a singular, powerful instrument, and she has such mastery of it,. She can turn it on, belt it out and bring you to your knees, all in an instant.”- Meshell Ndegeocello

"What makes these Heathens so refreshingly different is the overall musicianship and seamless blending of alt-rockers, folk tales, gutbucket blues and heartland anthems.” — Chicago Sun Times
The Band of Heathens
Band Of Heathens
ListenWatchWebsite
In the course of evolving from loose assemblage to world-class rock ’n’ roll outfit, the Band of Heathens has built a potent body of recorded work that’s won the Austin, Texas ensemble a fiercely loyal fan base and a reputation as one of its hometown’s most vital musical resources. BoH is also known as one of America’s hardest-working touring acts, while revealing a musical and lyrical depth that consistently enriches an infectious songcraft. Sunday Morning Record, the Band of Heathens’ fourth studio album (and seventh overall), marks a milestone in the resilient outfit’s development, capturing the musicians’ remarkable creative chemistry along with the deepening melodic and emotional resonance in the songwriting of founding singer-guitarists Ed Jurdi and Gordy Quist.

The Band of Heathens’ imposing reputation as a live act was reflected in their decision to launch their recording career with a pair of live albums, 2006’s Live From Momo’s and 2007’s CD/DVD Live at Antone’s. 2008 saw the release of an eponymous
first studio effort, produced by iconic Texas troubadour Ray Wylie Hubbard. That album won widespread fan approval and copious critical acclaim, as did 2009’s One Foot in the Ether, which, like its predecessor, reached the #1 slot on the national Americana charts. Also in 2009, the band gained substantial TV exposure, performing live sets on PBS’ Austin City Limits and the legendary German music show Rockpalast, as well as being honored as Best New Band at the Austin Music Awards.Can't join us in person?

"Mixing in elements of Americana and swing, one of the most promising new bands on Austin's bluegrass and acoustic scene." - SXSW.com
Wood and Wire
Wood and Wire
ListenWatchWebsite
Anyone wondering about Wood & Wire’s sound need not look any further than the band’s name, which honors the purity of acoustic instruments and the gorgeous music a skilled artist can coax out of just simple wood and wire.

Founded in 2010, Wood & Wire’s core members are Tony Kamel on lead vocals and guitar, Dominic Fisher on Bass, and Trevor Smith on Banjo. Their sound, as Smith puts it, is “a modern take on traditional mountain, hillbilly, and country music”. In just a few short years, the band has had the honor of playing notable festivals and venues across the country like The Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Old Settlers Music Festival. Later in 2014, they’ll make their way across the country playing Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival in Oak Hill, NY and the IBMA Street Fair in Raleigh, NC. After that the guys will make their way home to Austin to play the Austin City Limits Music Festival.

In February 2013, the band released their self-titled debut album to much critical acclaim. In March of this year, the guys began work on their follow up album working again with Grammy nominated producer/engineer Erick Jaskowiak in Nashville, TN. Their second effort is a coming of age collection of original songs based on real and personal experiences with a coastal theme and is set for release in early 2015. Wood & Wire is poised to have a another breakout year; as they bring fiery bluegrass footstompers and loose, acoustic jams to packed venues across the country, it’ll be hard to say who’s having a better time: the band or the crowd.

One of the most impressively powerful voices recently heard anywhere. Able to boon, cajole, promise and growl with equal power, she plays guitar with much the same forcefulness! - Dallas Observer

Carolyn Wonderland
Carolyn Wonderland

ListenWatchWebsite
As seen on Austin City Limits and at the Janis Joplin tribute at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Carolyn Wonderland is a triple threat with her diverse songwriting, soulful vocals, and guitar goddess status -- all featured on over twenty CDs, six of which are her releases -- she has a pedigree in this business that's hard to match.

Wonderland is a true legend in her time, equipped with the soulful vocals of Janis Joplin and the guitar slinging skills of Stevie Ray Vaughan. She is a bit of a renegade, she likes to incorporate elements of Blues, Country, Swing, Zydeco, Surf, Gospel, Soul, and some nights, maybe even a Cumbia into the musical mix...

Carolyn has won tons of awards including recent accolades as
2009 Best Female Vocalist at the Austin Music Awards
also sharing 2009 Best Blues Band with her bandmates Lefty and Cole!
... and, for several previous years,Houston Press Music Awards' songwriter of the year, musician of the year,release of the year, and best guitarist and best vocalist!

SHAKE RUSSELL
For more than three decades, Shake Russell has been entertaining audiences throughout the region with his unique, Americana style of folk-rock. A prolific songwriter, Shake has written or co-written hundreds of melodies. Through the years, Shake's songs and albums have frequented the Billboard charts, with many, including "Deep in the West", "You've Got a Lover", "Put Yourself in My Shoes", "One More Payment", and "Our Kind of Love" being recorded by such distinguished artists as Waylon Jennings, Jessi Colter, Ricky Skaggs, Clint Black, and Carolyn Dawn Johnson. Ricky Skagg's hit recording of "You've Got a Lover" has appeared on three of Ricky's albums. In 1983 Shake was commissioned by the Texas State University in San Marcos to write a song,''River of Innocence'' for a documentary filmed and produced by the university. In 1986, Shake was asked by longtime friend Bruce Bryant, creative producer at Houston television station KTRK, to compose a theme song commemorating the Texas sesquicentennial. He obliged and wrote the regional favorite, "Traveling Texas".

Shake is a two-time recipient of the BMI "Million Air" award for Clint Black's recordings of "Put Yourself in My Shoes" and "One More Payment", both of which he co-wrote with Clint, and a four-time recipient of the BMI Writer's Award. Shake made history by being named Entertainer of the Year for the third time (2004, 2008, 2011) in the Texas Music Awards!

MICHAEL HEARNE
How do you say "Acoustic Southwestern Americana Musical Guitar Genius" in just two words? Michael Hearne, that's how. Since the 1970s, this native Dallas Texan has strolled down a musical path inspired by the great folk and country singer-songwriters who typify and have characterized the Americana "roots" scene.

A consistent winner of the "Best of Taos" awards for performer and singer for the past 10 years, Hearne's songwriting credits are impressive. Awards include Song of the Year, Album of the Year, and Best Production at the 2001 New Mexico MIC AWARDS, for "A Taos Christmas Eve," 2002. He has penned songs for Jerry Jeff Walker and Gary P. Nunn ("Lesson to be Learned from Love") and his New Mexico anthem, "New Mexico Rain," recorded by his uncle and aunt, Bill and Bonnie Hearne, and country music legend Johnny Rodriguez.

His critically acclaimed CD "Sight and Sound" – 11 songs written about 11 different works of art – won seven awards at The New Mexico Music Awards, making him the biggest winner in their history. This CD includes the song The Songwriter, co-written with Grammy winners Mentor Williams and Andy Byrd. Michael Hearne has also written songs with his good friends Shake Russell, Keith Sykes, and many others.

“Blessed with a seemingly effortless melodic gift and one of the warmest, most penetrating vocal deliveries in American music” — No Depression
Darden Smith
Darden Smith
ListenWatchWebsite
For Darden Smith, the creatively expansive Texas troubadour, Love Calling represents both. The album opens a new chapter in the artist’s prolific career, and circles back to his musical roots. The release is Smith’s first in three years and the first for his new label, Compass Records. Yet for Smith, whose career has taken him all over the map, musically as well as geographically, the release also represents an artistic homecoming. The organic arrangements invoke the sound that established him as a breakout artist from the Texas club circuit in the mid-1980s, when he forged his style and found an audience that extended from country-folk traditionalists to those more attuned to contemporary trends.

Born in Brenham, Texas, in the wide open spaces between Houston and Austin, Smith released the indie Native Soil in 1986. Strong critical response led to a deal with Epic Records in Nashville. His 1988 Darden Smith debut for the label landed two singles on the country charts. But country music was changing, and so was Darden. He switched to the New York division of Columbia Records, began a fruitful songwriting partnership with Britain’s Boo Hewerdine (with whom he released Evidence, 1989), and earned critical raves and a wider audience beyond country with Trouble No More (1990) and Little Victories (1993). The former included “Frankie & Sue” and “Midnight Train,” both of which received significant airplay on the emerging adult album alternative (or Triple A) radio format. Little Victories featured “Loving Arms,” a Top Ten hit. Next, Smith moved to an independent label, Dualtone Music Group, with whom he produced a more personal trio of acclaimed albums: Sunflower (2002), Circo (2004), and Field of Crows (2005).

About MATT WILSON BAND
"Although he didn't start the fire, Matt Wilson is considered one of the hottest young pianists in the country today. Wilson's intense, red-hot piano playing literally has Houston audiences roaring on the edge of their seats and clamoring for more."- Houston Weekly

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.

Texas Troubadours
Owen Temple
& Jamie Wilson

Owen Temple

ListenWatchWebsite
Jamie Wilson

ListenWatchWebsite
OWEN TEMPLE: Temple’s songs are sophisticated and enlightening, offering a view of the Texas west that’s akin to Dave Alvin’s meditations on mid-century California. He writes with a folksinger’s eye, observing intimate, interior details of every day life, and painting big, mythological sketches. Temple’s music stretches into country, bluegrass, gospel and blues, and he sings with the confidence of a writer who deeply trusts his material.

His latest album, Stories They Tell, was released in 2013. As Owen describes it, "The eleven new songs add up to a retrospective, big picture look at what humans have been doing over the last 10,000 years. Making tools and stuff, forming relationships based on power, money, sex, and/or love, and, most importantly, telling stories of how it all went down. On this album, there are also songs about superstition, innovation, power, theft, technology, travel, philosophy, politics, aging, and history."

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.

Advance Ticket Purchase Recommended

Kat  Edmonson
ListenWatchWebsite
We are thrilled to have back Ms. Kat Edmonson, our 2011 Bugle Boy Foundation Talent Trust Recipient! Learn more here.

A stunningly sweet singer with a uniquely expressive voice, Kat Edmonson’s music has a timeless sound. In a few short years, she has gone from singing in small rooms in her native Texas to concert halls and festivals around the world, playing dates with the likes of Gary Clark Jr., Lyle Lovett, Michael Kiwanuka and Chris Isaak. She’s made memorable turns on “Austin City Limits”, “A Prairie Home Companion” and had her songs featured on several television shows and commercials. Such exciting growth is not surprising or unexpected for Edmonson. Her 2009 debut, Take to the Sky, comprised creative interpretations of standards and pop hits while her brilliant 2012 follow-up, Way Down Low, was called “one of the greatest vocal albums I’ve ever heard” by The Boston Globe. The album, which featured both originals and covers in styles from pop and country to jazz and bossa nova, earned her universal critical acclaim, and the attention of Sony Music Masterworks, who will release her third album, The Big Picture.

The Big Picture builds upon her previous works, but offers even more of her writing (she wrote or co-wrote 11 of 12 songs on the album), and more still of Kat’s unique sound. With no formal vocal training, she instead learned her craft as a child by watching Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly musicals on the VCR, drawing inspiration for this album from old films and her favorite songwriters. The result is a delicious batch of pop perfection, with a dozen songs that are tight, polished and more upbeat than anything she’s done before. Edmonson draws from a wellspring of ‘50s and ‘60s pop, ‘70s AM radio, present-day pop-rock and movie soundtracks. The Big Picture is smart, sophisticated and fun and simultaneously classic and modern.

"Astonishing creativity." - John Platt, WFUV
Harpeth Rising
Harpeth Rising
ListenWatchWebsite
HARPETH RISING chose to name themselves after a river because water is both dynamic and powerful. These words also describe the music created by the three women – Jordana Greenberg (violin, vocals), Rebecca Reed-Lunn (banjo, vocals) and Maria Di Meglio (cello, vocals). Unapologetic genre-benders, they fuse Folk, Newgrass, Rock and Classical into a sound that is organically unique.

Hallmarks of their music include expansive three-part harmonies, consummate musicianshi and a deft, yet soulful lyrical perspective. Harpeth Rising’s roots run deep – from their varied ancestry across Eastern Europe to the musical hotbed of the Mid-South they now call home, they weave together ancient and modern ideas, creating a sound that is both familiar and impossible to categorize.

From breathtaking energy to intimate connection, their live performances are kinetic events in which their passion and their abilities are equally displayed. Harpeth Rising can create a listening room from a rowdy bar crowd, and can inspire even the weariest of audiences. After only a few months as a band, they embarked on tour of England, which included a performance with The Bath Philharmonia. Their fifth album, Shifted, is set to release in early 2015.

On The Funny Side Of The Street:
A Night of Brighter Laughter

"Two of the funniest entertainers

Christine Lavin & Don White
WatchWebsite
Leave your worries at the doorstep and join Christine Lavin and Don White as they present a night of comedy unlike any other, The Funny Side of the Street: A Night of Brighter Laughter.

Since 2008 these two veteran performers have brought their unique brand of clean and hilarious musical comedy to audiences across the US proving night after night that comedy can be smart, friendly, and breathtakingly funny without being vulgar or pejorative. This is a show for anyone who wants to laugh, whether it’s a group of friends or a family gathering, and feel good on their way out of the venue.

Since emerging from the NYC singer/songwriter scene in the late 1980s, (along with Suzanne Vega, Shawn Colvin, John Gorka, etc), Lavin quickly established herself as an entertaining tour de force. Quick on her feet, witty, insightful, engaging, she remains one of the most popular and respected performers in the genre.

Don White, is the latest artist that Christine has championed. “He’s such an original; I call him sometimes a ‘blue collar intellectual,’” Lavin says. “Don has extremely high standards when it comes to what he does onstage. And he hits a grand slam every time. The first time we worked together he opened for me and it’s the only time in my entire career that I opened with a ballad because he was so funny, the audience was so laughed out.”
