Frank Martin Gilligan
Frank Martin Gilligan
ListenWatchWebsite
Frank Martin Gilligan grew up in NYC, but when he was 19 years old..…Texas happened. Frank moved to Beaumont, Texas, in the late 70's,he immediately formed MASON DIXON, a Texas vocal group that enjoyed a pretty good run on the charts and on the road in the 1980's and 90's. They played with just about everyone who was big in Country music at the time and racked up 13 Billboard chart singles as well. Mason Dixon had 13 nationally recognized songs on the BILLBOARD charts, numerous appearances on The Nashville Network, a #5 CMT hit video with the group's signature song “WHEN KAREN COMES AROUND”, and a 1987 Christmas special with Charlie Daniels on the stage of The Grand Ole Opry.

Mason Dixon's run lasted until 1993. Frank put music aside for some time. That might have been the end of it had it not been for a bout with cancer in 2009. Chemo ruined the nerves in his hands and feet and left him unable to play guitar. When he got his hands back, a lot of good songs came with it. Back to the stage and to the studio. Frank's been making some noise since he's been back!

Frank Martin Gilligan can be seen and hear all over the state of Texas and beyond these days. Frank's "Silver Dollar" CD his first solo effort, released in 2015 was very favorably received by independent radio. The title song "Silver Dollar" spent 4 weeks at #1 on the Roots Americana Chart and was rated #13 overall for the year!

Miss Lavelle White
& The L Men

Miss Lavelle White
ListenWatchWebsite
Hailed as an avatar of "true blues and a class act" (Portland Oregonian), Lavelle White was born in Jackson, Mississippi. She grew up in cotton fields and churches, the daughter of a gospel piano playing single mother. Taken under wing by Clarence Hollimon and Johnny Copeland and mixing with such musical giants as Albert Collins and Guitar Slim, she began singing in clubs and won a deal with Don Robey's Duke label in1958. White went on to work and tour with such greats as BB King, Buddy Guy, Otis Redding and James Brown. She spent a decade as the house singer at Chicago's “Kingston Mines”.

In the 80’s, Clifford Antone booked White into his Antone's nightclub in Austin, where she found herself in a community of younger admirers. Lou Ann Barton cut White's "Stop These Teardrops" and joined with Angela Strehli and Marcia Ball to later record her "Gonna Make It" . In 1994, White released her first-ever album, “Miss Lavelle,” to considerable praise. Jazz & Blues Report hailed it as "one of the tastiest R&B finds of the year," while the Haight Ashbury Free Press noted it as "one of the strongest and most honest blues CDs to come through my door." She followed it in 1996 with another triumph, “It Haven't Been Easy”, which CMJ/New Music Report crowned as "a classic album indeed" and Houston's Public News trumpeted as "one of the finest soul music albums ever heard." She has since released a third album, “Into the Mystic”.

Her band, “The L Men,” includes all-stars Mark “Kaz” Kazanoff on sax and harmonica, George Rarey on guitar, Appa Perry on bass, Paul “Buddha” Mills on drums and Matt Farrell on keyboard.

“Janet Robin is one of the best guitarists in the country: male or female.” – Michelle Shocked
Janet Robin
Guitar Player Magazine 2017 Top 50 Acoustic Guitar Players Bonus List alongside Lindsey Buckingham & Jimmy Page.

Janet Robin
ListenWatchWebsite
Janet Robin can be defined in a single word: musician. A Southern California native, Robin’s musical education began the moment she met her guitar teacher, Randy Rhoads (Quiet Riot, Ozzy Osbourne). Under Rhoads’ tutelage, Robin became an ace six-string player and, while still in high school, parlayed this education into a position as the lead guitarist for the all-female rock band Precious Metal. Discovered by Rodney Bingenheimer of the legendary L.A. rock radio station KROQ, Precious Metal was soon signed to Polygram Records. Later moving to Chameleon/Capitol Records, Precious Metal released several albums, wrote with Heart, Poison and Cheap Trick, toured extensively and gained accolades from both fans and critics alike.

Following the demise of Precious Metal, Robin joined Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham’s band in support of his 1992 solo album, Out of the Cradle (Reprise Records). A consummate pro, working with Buckingham profoundly influenced Robin’s guitar playing, singing and songwriting, as well as her general approach to the music business. This new direction led to Robin’s 1998 debut solo album, Open the Door. Released on her own label, Little Sister Records, Buzz Weekly described the CD as “smart, savvy, fuzzy, hooky pop.” She has seen songs from this album featured in film and television; most notably on the then popular T.V. show Felicity. Ever the road warrior, she supported the disc by opening for such acts as Heart, Colin Hay, Loudon Wainwright III and the Smithereens, steadily building a wide fan base. Robin has since continued to tour heavily and averages as many as 150 dates per year. One need not base their judgment on Robin solely on those with whom she has been associated. Only a listen to her albums or a ticket to one of her shows will prove the opening claim to be true. For what underlies the Janet Robin labels of singer, guitarist, songwriter, producer, and road warrior is a single word: musician.

Texas State Musician
Shelley King
"King does the Lone Star State and its capital city proud." -San Antonio Express
Shelley King

ListenWatchWebsite
“With her smoky, sultry vocals and smart, soulful songs, King is easily one of the finest singer/songwriters on the Austin music scene. She is a powerful, formidable presence on stage and her live performances are legendary among local music fans.” - The AXS Examiner

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.

"He is powerful and yet elegant, soulful and bluesy, heartfelt and yet soaring in his playing." - No Depression
Jeff Plankenhorn
Jeff Plankenhorn
ListenWatchWebsite
A quick listen to the albums released by Jeff Plankenhorn will give you an idea of the extremely varied styles the man Emily Robison of The Dixie Chicks calls a “chameleon” of performing. A deeper listen will uncover the overwhelmingly deep love all types of music Jeff has incorporated in his own unique style. Plankenhorn, or “Plank” as he is known, has found a way to blend the soulful vocals of the church, Motown, and funk singers that dominated his speakers as a youth with the bluegrass he studied while living in Nashville and the lyrically driven feel of the songwriters he has performed with since moving to Austin into an intoxicating sound that spans them all.

Like many other artists, Jeff found his voice in the church choir of his boyhood home in Ohio, “It was my first sense of belonging, community, and a feeling of doing good for others when we sang,” he recalls. Given a guitar from his older brother (an accomplished musician in his own right), Plank immediately found his calling as a musician, and began a lifetime calling of mastering the stringed instruments that spoke to him. Following college, Jeff headed to Nashville to continue his education, “studying” under the likes of Uncle Josh Graves, Gene Wooten, and Jerry Douglas. Never satisfied with the status quo, Jeff was intrigued by the suggestion of songwriting legend Ray Wylie Hubbard of coming to Austin, Texas. Upon arriving in the Lone Star State, Plankenhorn’s Swiss army knife abilities immediately created a high demand for his talents, and he began adding to a resume that includes appearances on records by such luminaries as Joe Ely, Ray Wylie, Slaid Cleaves, Eliza Gilkyson, Jimmy Lafave and many more.

One of Rolling Stone's Top Country Albums of 2016
Carrie Rodriguez
w/ Luke Jacobs

Carrie Rodriguez
ListenWatchWebsite
Carrie Rodriguez, a singer-songwriter from Austin, Texas, finds beauty in the cross-pollination of diverse traditions. A passionate performer, she effortlessly melds fiery fiddle playing, electrifying vocals and a fresh interpretation of new and classic songs with an “Ameri-Chicana” attitude. Her newest project, the upcoming Spanish/English album “Lola,” is both a return to her musical roots and something of a departure where she delivers her own twangy, Texas-bred twist on Mexican Ranchera songs, creating culturally blended music for a culturally blended world.

Inspired by the 1940’s-era recordings of Carrie’s great aunt, Chicana singing sensation Eva Garza, the album is a mixture of new and old songs. It features Spanish songs written by some of Carrie’s favorite Mexican composers, as well as her own Ranchera-inspired original songs written in English, Spanish and “Spanglish.”

Early in her career, a collaboration with singer-songwriter Chip Taylor resulted in four highly acclaimed duet albums. Her subsequent solo albums highlight the diversity of her musical identity, from her debut “Seven Angels on a Bicycle” to 2013’s “Give Me All You Got,” which reached no. 1 on the Americana Music Charts. Carrie has toured, recorded and co-written songs with legendary artists such as Lucinda Williams, John Prine, Bill Frisell, Rickie Lee Jones, Mary Gauthier, Los Lobos, Alejandro Escovedo and Los Lonely Boys, among others. She has made numerous television and radio appearances, including Austin City Limits, The Tonight Show and A Prairie Home Companion. She has been profiled in many publications, including Rolling Stone, The New York Times, The Times of London, The New Yorker, the Washington Post and many more.

Carrie lives in Austin with her partner and musical collaborator Luke Jacobs, a multi- instrumentalist/singer-songwriter from Minnesota, and their son, Cruz Calvin Jacobs.

"A dollop of Janis Joplin, a slice of Stevie Ray Vaughan..."- Daniel Gewertz, Boston Herald
Carolyn Wonderland
Carolyn Wonderland
ListenWatchWebsite
“The reigning queen of Austin blues, Carolyn Wonderland sparks fire on guitar and soulful fury in the force of her vocal grit."-Austin Chronicle

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 band-mates 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!

Raina Rose & BettySoo

Betty Soo

ListenWatchWebsite
Raina Rose: As the second daughter of a country music historian and a Jewish poet, Americana musician and songwriter Raina Rose revels in sharing with you her beautifully twisted, yet refreshingly optimistic perspective on the world. Her unique voice and exceptional guitar playing transcend age, gender, generation, and even catch the ears of those who aren't typically into acoustic guitar-driven songwriting. With a naturalist's eye, an artist's pen, and a lion's attack, Raina lays everything she has on the line; she makes you feel as if she's your best friend whispering a honeysuckle-sweet secret in your ear, warmly inviting you into a joyfully intimate and darkly candid conversation.

Raina has toured relentlessly for the better part of the last ten years, supporting such acts as Jill Sobule, The Bacon Brothers, Loudon Wainwright III and Tracy Grammer. Now married to bass player, Andrew Pressman (Jimmie LaFave, Sam Baker, Ben Kweller) and a mother of two young boys, Raina tours less often and more succinctly. After 8 years of living in a car and playing over 200 dates a year, this is a welcome change. Her travels have taken her everywhere across the USA and Europe, including such venues and gigs as the High Sierra Music Festival, Vancouver Island Music Festival, The Kerrville Folk Festival, The Cactus Cafe (Austin, TX), The Kessler Theater (Dallas, TX), Club Passim (Boston, MA), and The Birchmere (Alexandria, VA).

BettySoo: There are so many facets to BettySoo, it almost seems silly to boil her story down to a few witty paragraphs. She's a Korean-American raised in Spring, Texas who loves to eat dinner for breakfast. She writes a combination of Americana, folk and pop/rock. Her music is dynamic but also intimate and personal. Her style has been compared to John Prine, EmmyLou Harris, Alison Krauss, and Patty Griffin. How did a second-generation Korean end up with such a classic southern name? Is it a stage name? “No,” she answers, laughing, “I guess I’m just lucky that way. It’s right there on my birth certificate. Soo is my dad’s middle name, too. Yep, he’s a boy named Soo.”

Texas' Favorite Troubadour Band
Walt Wilkins
& The Mystiqueros

Walt Wilkins & the Mystiqueros
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.

With stories in her soul, a dash of courage, and a smile that melts walls, Grace Pettis is busy doing what she was born to do. The life of an independent touring artist is tough, but somehow she makes it look easy. In her short career, she has built a reputation as a respected songwriter among artists, industry, and fans. Her highly anticipated second album "TWO BIRDS" has received excellent reviews. Maverick Magazine featured a FIVE STAR review of her new album in their October edition. This sophomore album is a culmination of years of writing, touring and surviving as an independent artist.​ She splashed onto the music scene winning NPR’s Mountain Stage NewSong Contest, where her, "Nine to Five Girl" was selected for Best Song honors.

Grace carried this momentum when she performed as an Official Showcase Artist, at the 2010 International Folk Alliance conference, where she captured the attention of presenters and radio programmers as a young standout. Later that spring Grace won the Wildflower! Performing Songwriter Contest Grand Prize, and the People's Choice award. Grace's collection of accolades and years of touring led to her hugely successful fundraising campaign for her sophomore album TWO BIRDS. Grace continues to tour the country sharing her musical gifts with those who will listen.​

Austin Jenckes

ListenWatchWebsite
Brian Pounds

ListenWatchWebsite
Austin Jenckes: From the rural town of Duvall, Washington comes the voice of an honest soul. A 25 year old believer in the universal language of music that spills his heart into every word. With lyrical roots in country and folk, and an unmistakably unique vocal style, Austin Jenckes is by definition a singer/songwriter. He has spent the better half of a decade paving his own way; starting with small local followings in sleepy coastal towns around the pacific northwest. In January of 2012, he moved from Washington State to Nashville, Tennessee where he recorded an independently released EP titled "An American Story". Austin Jenckes is currently preparing for an extensive tour schedule in 2014 where he plans to formerly introduce himself to new listeners and with the intention of greeting every ear with the voice of an old friend.

Brian Pounds: Those outside the world of Austin songwriters may know of Brian from his appearance on Season 5 of NBC’s “The Voice,” where the young artist was handpicked by Blake Shelton. Brian’s voice is unmistakably strong; landing somewhere between the stylings of James Taylor and Chris Stapleton. It’s the kind of voice that gets strangers to perk up from behind their drinks at the bar. But his secret weapon is his songwriting. After the initial impact of hearing that voice for the first time, it starts to dawn on you that the songs themselves are really, really good.

Hard Candy
Christmas Tour

Hard Candy Christmas Tour
Watch
After the successful run of the Hard Candy Christmas tour in 2016 pairing four of the most talented songwriters from Texas together for a frigid tour of the blistery Midwest, they’ve decided to do it once again this year, cold fronts be damned. This thing was so cool last year, Miranda Lambert even stopped by for one of the shows. You should do the same for the opportunity to see this unique assemblage of singing and songwriting talent.

Jamie Lin Wilson is a member of the supergroup The Trishas who you might recognize singing on the Turnpike Troubadours’ “Call A Spade A Spade.” Her latest album Holidays & Wedding Rings is one of the best albums you can lay your paws on. Brennen Leigh has been dazzling audiences in Austin and beyond for years now with her original songs, her recent tribute to Lefty Frizzell (which is excellent), and now with her new group High Plains Jamboree. Courtney Patton’s country music contributions go far beyond being the singing partner of her husband Jason Eady, including her latest solo record So This Is Life. And Sunny Sweeney is the once Big Machine signee who returned to Texas, and whose latest record Trophy has some of the best songs you will hear in all of 2017.

“I love getting the chance to spend time with my friends,” says Sweeney. “That’s the main reason we do this. It’s not often we all get together because we are always all playing our own shows, so we made up a string of shows where we all get to sing and play together.”

You may hear some Christmas songs, but this isn’t necessarily a Christmas song tour. It’s about four songwriters singing on each other’s compositions, and using the camaraderie of the road to spread the joy of music.

Award Winning Songwriter and Dang Good Live Show
Susan Gibson
Susan Gibson
ListenWatchWebsite
Anyone who meets singer-songwriter Susan Gibson will know immediately that her family is a core foundation in everything she does, from the songs she writes to the tour routes she takes. It’s her mom, Nancy Gibson, who inspired the title track of Susan’s latest EP, “Remember Who You Are.” Susan says, “My mom said that her mom always used to tell her and her sisters, "Remember who you are" every time they left the house. I don't know if that was before or after they got caught drinking beer with a bunch of their friends and gave fake names to the Crofton, Nebraska police, but it's something that she always told me and my sister as soon as we were old enough to leave the house. She was an awesome mom. We were lucky to have her as our constant.” Nancy is also the catalyst for another song on the EP, “The Best of You,” written about surviving cancer. While Nancy lost her battle with lung cancer in 2013, Susan wrote it in honor of those who have fought cancer, be it the survivors themselves or the ones left behind. “I decided that instead of feeling sorry for myself, my mom would have wanted me to write this.”

To continue the thread of family and career in Gibson’s life, a song that Susan penned at her parents’ kitchen table while in college has been a cornerstone of her career as a performing musician and songwriter. “Wide Open Spaces” was written as a college kid’s cry for independence, but after The Dixie Chicks made it the title track of their 1998 debut, Gibson’s song has been woven into the family stories of countless people setting off on their own, whether it’s going to college for the first time or adventuring into one of the many new roads life takes us on as we grow older.

“Remember Who You Are” is Gibson’s latest collection of songs and was recorded with producer Don Richmond at the helm at Howlin’ Dog Studios in Alamosa, Colorado. With this new EP that resonates of community and family, Susan’s focus is now one that hits closer to home. With her new EP in tow that is summed up by Gibson as “songs about the ache of loss and the balm of letting go,” her next chapter is sure to seed a whole new batch of songs and stories.

Southwest Americana At Its Finest
The Rifters
The Rifters
ListenWatchWebsite
The Rifters formed in 2002 in the fertile and creative music scene of Taos, New Mexico. Jim Bradley and Don Richmond of Hired Hands, and Rod Taylor of the Rounders, who had all known one another for years playing in the acoustic dance-oriented Americana music scene of northern New Mexico, decided to join forces to form The Rifters. Putting out more music than it seems should be right for three guys on stage, the Rifters employ a wide range of acoustic and electric instruments, combined with soaring three-part harmonies, to provide a mesmerizing variety of music from driving blue-grama-grass to ethereal desert beauty. The years of playing to the dance crowds in their northern New Mexico homeland has given their music a toe-tapping rhythm that is engaging and undeniable. The Rifters are truly a musical voice of their region of high desert vistas and mountain majesty.

And just what sort of music do The Rifters play? From the liner notes to their self-titled first CD, released in July of 2004 on Howlin’ Dog Records:

“It’s music that comes from where we come from – both from the high desert and mountain landscape of our home and from the background and experiences of our lives – sort of a laid-back high-energy gentle giant old blue-buffalo-grama-grassy, cowboy, folky, shake-a-leg with a smile sort of thing. A rift is a split or a gap, sort of the like the Rio Grande Rift that we all live on or around. But this music is more about bridging gaps. For us the music is what ties all the different times and places together. We hope you enjoy it.”

A Powerhouse of Memphis Rock and Soul
Jimmy Davis
Jimmy Davis

ListenWatchWebsite
With a career that has spanned four decades and traversed more than a million miles, versatile singer-songwriter Jimmy Davis is the literal embodiment of the much too often used term "troubadour". This Memphis, Tennessee native musician, who first graced local stages at age 9, brings an infectious enthusiam to every performance.

Jimmy Davis' songs have been recorded by Martina McBride, Restless Heart, Tommy Alverson, Reba Russell, Walt Wilkins, as well as a myri​ad of other recording artists. As a backing vocalist, Jimmy has lent his extensive vocal talents to projects by numerous recording artists including, The North Mississippi Allstars, Jim Dickinson, Johnny Lang, Bernie Leadon, Keith Sykes, Michael Hearne, Toy Caldwell, Susan Marshall, Mark Collie and William Lee Golden. It's Jimmy's warmth, charisma and talent as a writer - performer that endear him to his well known peers.

In the early 1980's Jimmy began touring with the country recording artist, Charly McClain, as a rhythm guitar player and backing vocalist. In 1987, Jimmy Davis & Junction signed with MTV's QMI/MCA record label. The band's first release "Kick the Wall" yielded a top 40 AOR hit and a hit MTV Video. Junction was renowned for their live performances, and their songs took the band on a wild, rock and roll ride around the world.

Aching to get back to his roots, Jimmy, headed back to Memphis in 1995 and had the pleasure of hooking up with some of his old buddies, The Riverbluff Clan, a rocking bluegrass outfit from the 70’s. With Jimmy on lead vocals and guitar, the band released two critically-acclaimed independent albums, in 1996, "One Night In A Month of Sunday's" and 1998, "Two Quarts Low" an Americana Top 20 record. Jimmy was named “Premier Male Vocalist” five times by the Memphis chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences and was well loved by local audiences. Jimmy agreed to join the respected Texas group, Walt Wilkins and the Mystiqueros in 2011. He relocated permanently to the Texas Hill Country in 2012. When not playing or recording with the Mystiqueros, Jimmy tours playing his songs for fans at festivals, sold out venues and house concerts.
