"Powerful and yet elegant, soulful and bluesy, heartfelt and yet soaring in his playing." - No Depression
Jeff Plankenhorn
With BAND

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.

Pop-infused Jazz, Soul & Rock Artist
Woody Russell
Bugle Boy Talent Trust Artist
Woody Russell

ListenWatchWebsite
"Woody Russell is the consummate singer/songwriter, and one of the most believable lyricists and storytellers I’ve heard in quite some time. Russell’s latest endeavor, Carry It Up, packs a wallop of pop-infused jazz, soul and rock flavorings that will send you on an unforgettable expedition through fascinating hues of ingenious songwriting and immaculate production – track after track after track."- Jazz Quarterly

Critically acclaimed, award winning vocalist, guitarist and composer, Woody 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. 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”.

2013 Bugle Boy Founder's Choice Talent Trust Recipient

"A top-flight musician, songwriter, and producer."

Gurf Morlix
Gurf Morlix
ListenWatchWebsite
Visiting planet Gurf has always been an enlightening experience. After all, this Gurf Morlix fellow – Buffalo born, Texas bred – has provided us with countless indelible musical moments in the last 40-plus years: his exemplary guitar and production work with Lucinda Williams; his instrumental accompaniment to artists ranging from Blaze Foley to Warren Zevon; his production of watermark albums for artists such as Ray Wylie Hubbard, Robert Earl Keen and Mary Gauthier – and, since 2000, a series of eight solo records that have a singular worldview and can be both harrowing and heartening, often at the same time. Now, prepare yourself for “The Soul And The Heal”. Gurf Morlix’s ninth album is another chapter in a songbook that pithily relates the human condition. This batch of songs yields the expected Morlix darkness and humor, but woven between are numbers imbued with a warm light.

The epitome of "Keep Austin Weird"...
Austin Lounge Lizards
Austin Lounge Lizards
ListenWatchWebsite
The Austin Lounge Lizards are arguably the perfect pairing of their hometown’s moniker, “Music Capital of the World,” and its motto: “Keep Austin Weird.” For 33 years, the Lizards have been spoofing the topics American families try to avoid at the Thanksgiving table; subjects like politics, religion, romance, the music industry, and their crazy/stupid relatives. With pointed lyrics, precise harmonies and instrumental expertise, the band has become legendary for its satirical skewering through song.

With their unique amalgamation of highly literate Ivy League roots; the folk, country and bluegrass musical conventions of Appalachia and Nashville; creative influences like Frank Zappa, Spike Jones, George Jones, and Flatt & Scruggs; and an unquenchable thirst for the absurd, the Lizards specialize in musical eclecticism, excellence and extreme entertainment.

Slim Bawb
& The Fabulous StumpGrinders

2017 Grammy Nominated for Best Americana Album!
Slim Bawb & The Fabulous Stumpgrinders
ListenWatchWebsite
2017 Grammy Nominated for Best Americana Album!

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

A Texas Powerhouse Returns
Terri Hendrix
& Lloyd Maines

Terri Hendrix
ListenWatchWebsite
Nearly 20 years after the release of her debut album, Two Dollar Shoes, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Terri Hendrix is about to unveil the most ambitious project of her career. In fact, it’s not just one, but five — four albums and a book — all of which will debut in 2016. Titled Project 5, the event begins with the release of Love You Strong, on her own Wilory Records label. Though each segment of Project 5 is distinct, they’re linked by their relationship to the concepts of love, hope, faith and understanding. Love You Strong explores issues of trust, loyalty and conviction, while putting love under a microscope. She and producer/performing and business partner Lloyd Maines never record less than stellar work. (“Lil’ Jack Slade,” the song they co-wrote with Dixie Chicks Martie Maguire and Emily Robison Strayer, earned a Best Country Instrumental Performance Grammy in 2002, and the album it’s on, Home, won Best Country Album.) She’s also turned her mantra, “own your own universe,” into not only a business plan, but a blossoming nonprofit arts center in Martindale, just outside of Austin, known by the acronym OYOU.

of Singer/Songwriters!

Morgan Ashley & Briana Adams
Morgan Ashley & Briana Admas
MORGAN ASHLEY
Originally from Columbus, TX, now making College Station home, Morgan grew up raising cattle and barrel racing, but it wasn't long before the Texas Music bug bit hard and she knew that she belonged on a stage somewhere in Texas, playing the music she grew up loving and introducing fans to her own unique brand. She tested the waters with her first solo self-titled EP which came out in April 2017. Within a few months she drew the attention of Hit Songwriter and Multi-Platinum Producer, Steve Freeman. The two began collaborating on new music and in December of 2017 began recording her now available full length album, KARMA.

BRIANA ADAMS
Texas singer/songwriter Briana Adams is a sweet-natured Southern crooner that really just wants to share her music with the world. She has a big Texas voice and an unmistakable style that's all her own. And if you catch a little twist of blues and rock'n' roll in the vocal, that's not by accident.

Briana grew up in Winchester, Tx. She has opened for well-known Texas artists such as Randy Rogers Band & Charlie Robison. Briana recently release her debut album titled, "Dive Bars & Old Guitars".
