"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!

A Rare Combo Not To Be Missed
Jon Dee Graham &
Jamie Lin Wilson

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.

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.

"Transcendent alternative-folk - you will find yourself craving more from this amazing, dynamic duo."
- Huffington Post

Dawn & Hawkes
Dawn & Hawkes
ListenWatchWebsite
Miranda Dawn and Chris Hawkes first met in 2010 when he crossed an Austin barroom floor and asked her to dance. A modest beginning became an undeniable attraction the first time they sang together. Hawkes, a recording producer and touring artist, had a handful of solo records, while Dawn, a performing singer-songwriter, was hosting her own songwriter group showcases, literally setting the stage for their fateful convergence. “I went every week to Miranda’s showcase to hear friends play their new songs. That’s where I really heard Miranda’s lyrics.” Hawkes recalls. “One night, after closing time, a few of us were still sharing songs, and a great mandolin player — who I later learned was Miranda’s dad — asked her to play her song called ‘Forever Happily.’ It felt familiar so I picked up a guitar and played along.” Miranda Dawn admits “Our harmony just fell in and that was the moment we both felt that we should sing together. Something happened and it was as if there was suddenly this third voice.” She continues with more than a hint of genuine wonder “I’d sung harmony with other people before, but this was definitely its own beast.”

Dawn asked Hawkes to record her debut solo album and he joined her onstage at the 2012 Kerrville Folk Festival where Dawn was a finalist in the prestigious New Folk Songwriting Competition. Their first duo effort, Golden Heart EP, released shortly after, kicked off a whirlwind three years of constant cross-country touring, co-writing, and even a run on The Voice. Judge Adam Levine called their version of the Beatles’ “I’ve Just Seen a Face” his “favorite performance on the show - ever” and the single reached No. 1 on Billboard’s rock chart. Their original music followed climbing to No. 25 in Billboard’s Folk chart and landing at No. 2 in iTunes singer-songwriter albums. Likening it to playing one of the biggest festival bills in the world, they seized the opportunity to perform in front of millions. “In the end, it put more wind in our sails” Hawkes says of the experience, “but we’ve still got the same boat - and we have to keep our oars in the water.”

Together, they kept following the tide. After filming, Dawn and Hawkes headed home to their humble studio abode in Austin Texas and immediately set to work recording Yours and Mine in between tour dates with the likes of Dawes, Patty Griffin, Chris Isaak, Jim Lauderdale, Robert Earl Keen, Valerie June, and showcasing at festivals including Austin City Limits, Folk Alliance, South By Southwest and TEDx.

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!

"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.

Our Favorite Texas Troubadours
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.

"Sonic colors of rock, fusion jazz, gypsy jazz, traditional folk and singer-songwriter." - Hudson Valley News
Tim & Myles Thompson
Tim and Myles Thompson
ListenWatchWebsite
Tim and Myles Thompson have been inspiring audiences throughout the country. With recent performances that include the Montreal Jazz Festival, Pagosa Folk ‘N Bluegrass Festival, and the Chet Atkins Festival, they have polished their craft to a fine luster. The duo has opened for Spyro Gyra, Don Williams, Mountain Heart, Richard Elliot, and are doing many 2016 tour dates with Wynonna and the Big Noise.

Tim is a Nashville based session player, singer/songwriter and the 2008 International Fingerstyle Champion. Music has always filled the Thompson home; unknowingly it inspired Myles to pick up the violin at the tender age of five! By the age of twelve he was studying music theory and improvising with skill beyond his years – it was clear that music would be his life. Today at the ripe old age of twenty-one Myles is also a prolific singer/songwriter and mandolin player.

Tim Thompson has appeared with such artists as Tommy Emmanuel, Crystal Gayle, and Hwy 101. He has recorded eleven CDs and two DVDs. Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine says, “Tim Thompson is a Nashville based finger-stylist that burns!” Tim’s original music has been featured as bumper music on NPR, Casper’s Haunted Christmas CD and the Flip Video Camera software.

No one music genre totally encompasses the Thompson’s repertoire. Is it acoustic rock, pop, country, Celtic, jazz, funk? The simple answer is yes to all of the above. To experience a Thompson performance is to remember the experience.

"A first class lyricist who delivers these words with an expressive, bell-clear voice."
- San Antonio Express News

Jean Synodinos
Jean Synodinos
ListenWatchWebsite
Jean Synodinos delivers grit, grace and acoustic soul with a voice that's been hailed by critics as “big league” and "show-stopping." Her award-winning writing digs deep, moving from large affirmations to little ironies, giving pain, honesty, and love equal footing. Her fourth album, love & blood, has just entered the world as a multi-media digital experience with extensive liner notes, artwork, essays, and videos.

Early reviews for love & blood have compared it to Bob Dylan's Blood on the Tracks, Joni Mitchell's Blue, and the poetry of Leonard Cohen. She was recently declared a Top 10 Finalist in the 2015 Austin Music Awards in the categories of Best Songwriter and Best Folk Act, and songs from the new album have won first place in the International Song Door Competition and placed as finalists in the Great American Song Contest.
 
A 1996 win in Kerrville's New Folk Competition prompted a move from NYC to Austin where she's quietly and steadily built a dedicated following.  She has also performed coast-to-coast as a solo artist at premier listening rooms, house concerts, and coffee houses. In memory of her late ex-husband, her current passion is speaking about addiction and newer, more promising ways to help those who suffer from this chronic, progressive disease of the brain. Also a prolific painter, Jean and her superior dog Freida live in a little house with a big yard and a modest garden.
