"The music had way of expanding into the room like sonic cloud." - Houston Press
Blue Healer
Blue Healer
ListenWatchWebsite
Born out of the belief that music should be fun, Blue Healer cruised into the Austin scene in 2015 with the ease of your first high school set of wheels - the wheels you got to second-base in on a neon-tinged Friday night. Mixing distorted upright bass, shimmering guitar, analog synths, and drums, the Texas native trio blends a unique mesh of indie rock and dance sounds into the familiar fabric of classic songwriting. Picture the face of pop accessibility with the teeth of basement rock n' roll - the songs sink in and don't let go.

Members David Beck, Bryan Mammel, and Dees Stribling all played and toured nationally together in previous projects, including Austin-based Sons of Fathers, where David was a primary singer and writer. Blue Healer creates a big, unforgettable live performance that you won't want to miss. Look forward to their debut album out in 2016.

Celebrating A New Album Release!
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.

"Ball’s rollicking roadhouse rave-ups and soulful Gulf Coast R&B, her barrelhouse playing and her feel-good party tunes are iconic." - USA Today
Marcia Ball
Marcia Ball

ListenWatchWebsite
The title track of Marcia Ball’s new album, The Tattooed Lady And The Alligator Man, is an irresistible tale of true love at the travelling carnival. It’s a story that nobody but Ball could spin, filled with vivid details, universal truths, and a rambunctious sense of fun and desire. With raucous horns punctuating Ball’s legendary piano pounding and emotional, melodic vocals, the song kicks off the CD of eleven originals and one glorious cover (Hank Ballard’s He’s The One). The release mixes Ball’s Gulf Coast blues, New Orleans R&B, swampy Louisiana ballads, and jumping, Tex-Mex flavored zydeco into a one-of-a-kind musical gumbo, a sound she has been perfecting over the course of her legendary career. She’s received five Grammy Award nominations, including five of her six previous Alligator albums. Always a songwriter of renown, Ball delved deeper into songwriting than she ever had in her career with her Grammy-nominated 2010 Alligator release, Roadside Attractions, creating one of her best and most personal albums.

The New York Times says, “Marcia Ball plays two-fisted New Orleans barrelhouse piano and sings in a husky, knowing voice about all the trouble men and women can get into on the way to a good time.” Living Blues declares, “Her originals sound like timeless classics and southern soul masterpieces that no one else can imitate.” Of the new album, Ball says, “I don’t make a record until I have to have something to say, stories to tell, messages to impart. I try to make records that are true to me,” she continues, “and this one couldn’t be truer.”

On The Tattooed Lady And The Alligator Man, the message is loud and clear: Marcia Ball has plenty of surprising and thought-provoking stories to tell, and the two-fisted piano prowess, sweet and soulful vocals and superlative songs with which to tell them.

2014 Bugle Boy Talent Trust Recipients
Chubby Knuckle Choir
Chubby Knuckle Choir
ListenWatchWebsite
The Chubby Knuckle Choir (CKC) are the 2014 recipients of the Bugle Boy Talent Trust. Every member of the CKC contributes their own songs & style. This diversity is brilliantly weaved together and takes the audience on a rarefied genre jumping musical journey that is musically intriguing and fun to watch.

Their latest CD, "Reveille" gets its name in keeping with the Bugle Boy theme. Womack explains "Reveille" was chosen as a direct nod to the Bugle Boy because the band realizes the opportunities that are available to CKC because of the 2014 Talent Trust. The honor has become their "wake-up call."

"...these guys are so funky, you can smell 'em!"
— Lloyd Maines, Real Life Real Music Festival

“...The result is a delicious musical bouillabaisse of swampy blues, rocking country and R&B. The tasty licks and tangy riffs will leave you hungry for more.” — Hap Mansfield, San Marcos Mercury

"One of the most impressively powerful voices recently heard anywhere." - Dallas Observer
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!

A big THANK YOU to the Texas Commission on the Arts and the
National Endowment For The Arts
for assisting with funding for this program.

“Eberhardt is as welcome as iced tea in August.”
— People

Cliff Eberhardt
w/special guest Louise Mosrie
Cliff Eberhardt
ListenWatchWebsite
Cliff Eberhardt knew by age seven that he was going to be a singer and songwriter. At fifteen, Cliff and his brother Geoff began touring as an acoustic duo, playing the Eastern club circuit until Cliff turned twenty-one and moved to Carbondale, Illinois. There he found space to develop his own voice within a vibrant and supportive music scene that included Shawn Colvin. After a couple of years there and a short stay in Colorado, Cliff moved to New York in 1978. Because the clubs were great (the Bitter End, the Speakeasy, Kenny's Castaway, Folk City) and the company amazing (John Gorka, Suzanne Vega, Lucy Kaplansky, Julie Gold, Steve Forbert, Christine Lavin, and Shawn Colvin), New York was an ideal musician's boot camp. Though he put in long hours as a taxi driver, Cliff worked steadily on his music throughout the 80's, doing solo gigs and studio work, and playing guitar on the road with Richie Havens, Melanie and others. Singing advertising jingles for products like Coke, Miller Beer and Chevrolet ("The Heartbeat of America" campaign) allowed him to devote more time to his songwriting.

Recorded in the Texas Hill Country, Cliff's 2009 album 500 Miles: The Blue Rock Sessions may be his finest to date. An intimate album of powerful originals and unique covers, it features a reworking of his hit "The Long Road," a song made more poignant after nearly two decades of touring and recording. Cliff's song "Memphis" was included on Cry Cry Cry, an album of collaborative covers by the "folk supergroup" of the same name (comprised of Dar Williams, Lucy Kaplansky and Richard Shindell). Other performers who have recorded his songs include Richie Havens, Shawn Colvin, and Buffy Sainte Marie.

Louise Mosrie: At the dawn of the 21st Century, Mosrie released a couple of acoustic pop recordings, then in 2004 relocated to Nashville and set about refocusing her approach to songwriting. Between 2009 and 2011, success came her way in festival song contests at Kerrville, Wildflower, Telluride, and Falcon Ridge. Early 2010 witnessed the release of Mosrie's rootsy collection Home. Peaking at #1 on the Folk DJ chart, the album consolidated her standing as a touring acoustic folk/country musician on the rise. Her latest release, Lay It Down, was produced by singer-songwriter Cliff Eberhardt and recorded in his Williamsburg, MA home. Located centre stage throughout, Mosrie’s voice and acoustic guitar deliver the songs exactly in the form they arrived in this world. While not a unique approach, here it works extremely well. Over the past couple of years, the pair have regularly toured together, and Eberhart's exposure to Mosrie's songs in a live situation goes a long way to explaining how he evolved his production approach.

"The poetry of life being recited to the soul as it unfolds in a never ending ribbon of emotional moments." - Saving Country Music
Jamie Lin Wilson
Jamie Lin Wilson
ListenWatchWebsite
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 latest 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.

'Texassippi Soul Man' Danny Brooks & Lil Miss Debi have been touring constantly, promoting and building their reputation throughout North America.

Celebrating the release of her
new album "Every Little Star"

Elizabeth Wills
2009 Bugle Boy Talent Trust Recipient
Elizabeth Wills
ListenWatchWebsite
Elizabeth Wills is the 2009 Bugle Boy Founder's Choice Award Recipient and by proclamation, January 28th is Elizabeth Wills Day in Fayette County.

In her first studio project in seven years, Every Little Star, Wills is featured on lead vocalist and on piano, her first instrument. “I’m over-the-moon happy about it,” she says. “Since I was a kid, the piano has brought me comfort and peace and has been the vehicle through which I could allow my thoughts and emotions to run freely across the keyboard.” Such freedom and beauty comes through in the album, which she says was worth the wait. “These new songs were ready to come on out,” she explains of the timing. “I have been through what seems like a couple of lifetimes in the past several years, but there was immense beauty and lessons gracefully given to me to learn and walk through. I wanted an album that reflected that growth and that movement."

Influenced by writer-artists Joni Mitchell, Carole King, and their contemporaries, Wills bases songs in honesty, goodness, and vulnerability. Fans relate, and the industry has taken notice as well. Wills is a past winner of the Dallas, Texas-based B.W. Stevenson Songwriting Competition and was a finalist in the New Folk Competition (Kerrville Folk Festival).

With her band, Wills has played notable festivals like ACL, South by Southwest, Kerrville Folk Festival, Austin City Limits Festival, Southwest Regional Folk Alliance, The Backyard and more. She enjoys regular airplay on college radio stations across the country and NPR affiliates in Austin, Dallas, and Fort Worth, and she has guested on the nationally syndicated radio show "What D’ya Know."

"Forget genre considerations and labels. These are simply great songs." - No Depression
Vicky Emerson
Vicky Emerson
ListenWatchWebsite
In the middle of June 2015, Vicky stepped off the plane onto the tarmac and it was blue sky for as far as the eye could see, big blue Montana sky. Putting two feet on the ground, she took in the mountains in the distance and raised her face to the sun. Then the wind took her by surprise, whirled her hair, billowed her skirt, and threw her completely off balance. For three days that fierce wind didn’t let up until she boarded her plane home to Minneapolis.

The story of balancing a family and career is by no means a new one, but it is always an immense challenge for the person experiencing it for the first time. With her newfound perspective about letting it all go, the songs came and they came fast.

Always influenced by the work of Lucinda Williams and Emmylou Harris, Vicky also turned her ear to JD McPherson and Jason Isbell for inspiration. From there, she brought her batch of songs to longtime friend, collaborator, and acclaimed producer, Matt Patrick. Enlisting the talents of Steve Goold (Sara Bareilles, Ben Rector), Ian Allison (Jeremy Messersmith), Jake Armerding (Bela Fleck, Nickel Creek), Aaron Fabbrini (Sarah Groves), Steve Bosmans (John Mark Nelson), the bedtracks were tracked in a live setting in three days and with Patrick’s vision, an incredible Americana album was born.

Wake Me When the Wind Dies Down was released on 1/1/2016 and continues to garner critical acclaim on a local and national basis. The Minneapolis Star Tribune said, “Vicky Emerson has voice like a fallen angel that's as pretty as it is strong, and now she backs it up with growing lyrical depth and richly blue Americana arrangements on her third album, "Wake Me When the Wind Dies Down." No Depression raved "From its wonderful title, understated cover, tight focus, and great songs, Vicky Emerson’s third album Wake Me When The Wind Dies Down is an all-encompassing musical experience. Forget genre considerations and labels. These are simply great songs. 9 out of 10 stars."

"Kremer's velvety tenor breathing new life into cherished songs...evoking slow winds on sawdust dance floors." - The Austin Chronicle
Brian Kremer
Brian Kremer
ListenWatchWebsite
Brian Kremer is a modern day crooner-songwriter who performs jazz standards, originals, and early country songs with warmth and charm. The Austin Chronicle said of his latest release, Echoes & Twirls, that “If Cole Porter’s songwriting were any less iconic, it’d be impossible to tell where his words end and Brian Kremer’s begin” and described his voice as a “velvety tenor breathing new life into cherished songs.” The independently released album, recorded live in the studio with The Carper Family, gained him a coveted spot on the 2015 roster of Austin’s musical ambassador program, Project ATX6. The ATX6 sent Brian to Angers, France for a week of performances and to official showcases at Halifax Pop Explosion and NXNE in Toronto alongside 2015 Austin Musician Of The Year Gina Chavez and four other Austin based singer-songwriters.

Originally from Vermont, the former classical singer earned a Grammy nomination (2003 with the Dale Warland Singers) and a degree from Berklee College of Music before relocating to Austin, his home for the last dozen years. Brian only recently discovered his calling to croon from the Great American Songbook and to write songs with the masters of that classic form in mind. He’s also become involved in Austin’s theater scene as an actor, composer, and accompanist with Love Me Tinder, a musical sketch revue directed and produced by award-winning playwright Adrienne Dawes. The show featured in several 2015 festivals including Out Of Bounds Comedy Festival and FronteraFest where it won Best Of Week. A full-scale one-hour production ran for six sold-out shows in February 2016 at Salvage Vanguard Theater and the show continues its success in 2016 with headlining performances at the Dallas Comedy Festival and Sketch Fest in Austin.
