There’s Texas, and then there’s West Texas. You can leave it behind, but you can’t let it go — and nobody knows that better than the five young artists united under the banner of Austin’s West Texas Exiles. Although the band didn’t officially form until early 2022, its members are hardly newbies. Lubbock native Colin Gilmore and Amarillo’s Daniel Davis are both veteran solo artists, while Marco Gutierrez hails from El Paso’s Dirty River Boys. Together with bassist/producer Eric Harrison and drummer Trinidad Leal (Dirty River Boys, Dixie Witch, Grady, and Honky), they pool their shared influences (from fellow West Texans like Buddy Holly and the Flatlanders to Jason Isbell) to reinvigorate the the Texas music scene with a modern interpretation of the Lone Star vernacular. Grounded in rhythmic and lyrical honesty, the Exile sound is the vastness of the West Texas sky and the energy of a world where nothing stands still for long. Their debut EP, simply titled Volume 1 and released in February, evokes the ghosts of southwestern Americana at its snake-bit best while pointing the way to brand new horizons.

LIVE WEBCASTS

Lisa Morales’ credentials on the Texas songwriter scene were established long before the release of her debut solo album, My Beautiful Mistake, in 2011. In addition to performing and recording for nearly two decades part of the acclaimed San Antonio-based sibling duo Sisters Morales (with her beloved sister, Roberta, who passed away from cancer in August 2021), Lisa also produced Flowers & Liquor, the 2002 debut album by Americana music favorite Hayes Carll. But it was My Beautiful Mistake (hailed by Lone Star Music Magazine as “an absolutely flat-out devastating and stunning work of art”) and it’s equally luminous follow-up, 2018’s Luna Negra & the Daughter of the Sun, that marked the Tucson, Arizona-native’s true arrival as a creative force to be reckoned with and, according to Rolling Stone, “one of the most multifaceted artists to watch in 2018.” On her third album, 2022’s She Ought to Be King, Morales once again affirmed her world-class stature with a distinctive perspective and a remarkable capacity for looking both inward and outward. “I’ve been looking at how strong we women are,” she says “We keep evolving and gaining more confidence with time. We don’t sink into our own shoes — we stand taller in them.” Morales recently finished recording a brand new album; whether or not she’ll decide to break out any of those new songs when she returns to the Bugle Boy for this show remains to be seen, but rest assured she’ll be packing beautiful melodies in spades.

LIVE WEBCASTS

Born in New Hampshire, raised in Maine and now based in Nashville, Rod Picott is a former construction worker who traded his hammer for a guitar and never looked back. He has released more than a dozen albums over the last 20 years, and has also written two poetry collections, God In His Slippers and Murmuration, and a book of short stories, Out Past the Wires. Picott’s songs have been placed in television and film projects including the FX series Justified, the Michael Douglas film Solitary Man, and the PBS documentary Circus. He has toured as the opening act for Alison Krauss & Union Station and shared a win for Song of the Year at the Austin Music Awards for “Broke Down,” co-written with fellow Maine transplant Slaid Cleaves. The two songwriters have been friends since their teens, when they played together in their first band, the Magic Rats. Picott’s most recent projects include a limited edition double CD titled Wood, Steal Dust & Dreams, featuring newly recorded versions of 23 songs he and Cleaves co-wrote together over the last 30 years, 2022’s Paper Hearts & Broken Arrows, and this year’s Starlight Tour. In a review for No Depression, writer Lyndon Bolton hailed Starlight Tour as “raw and totally absorbing,” adding, “Rod Picott has bared his soul to such an extent he rates this one of the best albums he’s ever made. It’s hard to disagree.”

Hamilton Loomis

"One of the most highly engaging performers you are ever likely to hear, meet or see.” — FabricationsHQ, Scotland

Get Tickets


LIVE WEBCASTS

Born and raised in Galveston, Hamilton Loomis is the son of musician parents who listened to blues, rock and soul. Music ran in his veins and, with instruments readily available around the house, he picked up drums, piano, guitar, and harmonica, honing his multi-instrumental talent in addition to performing regularly as part of his family’s doo-wop group. “My parents had a fantastic record collection and, when I started writing, I gravitated towards what I’d been listening to all my life,” he says. “I have a huge reverence for the blues and all it encompasses, but I’ve always been fond of R&B and funky music.” At age 16, he met one of his biggest musical heroes, Bo Diddley, backstage at Houston’s famed Rockefeller’s. Before the night was over, Loomis was onstage playing guitar with the legend. Diddley quickly became friend, mentor, collaborator and supporter, appearing on two of Loomis’ albums and presenting a cherished red guitar that he still plays. Loomis has paid that mentorship forward throughout his own career, perhaps most notably on his 2017 album, Basics, which featured several of his own protégées and closed with a jam session by some of his favorite Houston-area youngsters, ranging in age from 12 to 16. He’s long been just as generous with his live audiences, too: Described by Blues Blast Magazine as “a non-stop turbo of power,” Loomis’ energetic, get-in-with-the-crowd antics are as unforgettable as his musicianship. “I feel joy when I play music and it literally moves me,” he says. “It moves my body. I learned long ago that whenever music is coming from you, from deep inside your soul and from the right place, people will feel that on a deeper level and might not even know what’s going on inside of themselves. I enjoy engaging the crowd and feel a show should be an interactive experience.” 

"Classify him as a blues guitarist with an appetite for rock or a rock and roll maestro with a sweet tooth for the blues ... Loomis lives in both worlds comfortably, crossing stylistic boundaries with effortless precision." — No Depression

LIVE WEBCASTS

Although now based in Austin, singer-songwriter Taylor Rae was born in Santa Cruz, California and raised in the quaint town of Ben Lomond, nestled in the Santa Cruz mountains. She sang her first song at the age of 2, a cover of Carole King’s “It’s Too Late,” and began to write her own music at 8. By the time she was 10, she had filled countless notebooks with her original lyrics. Inspired by the natural beauty of her hometown, as well as the music of artists such as Bonnie Raitt, Janis Joplin, Sheryl Crow, Norah Jones, Simon & Garfunkel and Steely Dan, she taught herself guitar at 12 and by the time she was 15, she was playing her first paid gig. The next decade of her life saw her wandering around the U.S., exploring the many forms of Americana, folk, jazz and blues and the changing attitudes of the world. Her debut album, 2021’s Mad Twenties, features a dozen originals spanning acoustic folk to Led Zeppelin-tinged rock and roadhouse blues, with some Jazz and psychedelic influences thrown in for good measure. “Taylor Rae’s edgy vocals slide easily from tender to tough, from a gentle whisper on folk ballads to soaring shouts on the blues and blues-rock striders,” enthused No Depression. The single “Home on the Road” remained in the Top 10 of the Americana Music Singles Chart for five consecutive weeks and the album remained in the Top 50 for 31 consecutive weeks. Since the album’s released she has toured heavily nationwide, making a slew of podcast, radio, and television appearances, playing festivals such as MerleFest, AmericanaFest, DelFest, and Rochester Jazz Festival, and sharing the stage with artists like Sierra Hull, the Head and the Heart, and Brandy Clark.

Texas troubadour with the heart of a Honky-Tonk Hero

Dallas Burrow

"One of Texas' most compelling young artists." — Doug Freeman, Austin Chronicle

Get Tickets


LIVE WEBCASTS

If acting had been his calling rather than music, it’s not hard to imagine Dallas Burrow being a lead on Yellowstone or even landing a plumb gig as the big screen’s next Superman. But to hear the native Texan sing in that gravelly baritone voice of his that could have held its own in a round with Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash — and what’s more, to hear him singing the kind of quality originals that reveal both a keen study of his home state’s greatest songwriting heroes and the kind of honest integrity that only comes from hard-earned, first-hand experience — and it’s clear that this man was born to be a honky-tonk poet troubadour. But after spending his twenties touring relentlessly, building a career on both sides of the Atlantic supporting his 2019 debut, Southern Wind, Burrow began missing the stability of life back in his native New Braunfels. Rather than pack away his guitar for good, though, he just refocused his muse and craft on matters closer to hearth, home, and heart. His second album, 2021’s Dallas Burrow — produced by modern-day Texas legend Bruce Robison — marked both a symbolic and literal homecoming, with songs about embracing maturity, newfound sobriety, and the responsibilities of family life. Those themes carry over onto his third album, Blood Brothers, which he recorded with Jonathan Tyler. “On this record, I wanted to tell the story of my musical roots, starting with my dad and his influence as a songwriter and the artists he raised me on: Townes, Guy Clark, Billy Joe Shaver, and Willis Alan Ramsey,” he explains. “I also wanted to tell the story of my own personal journey and reframe for myself what it means to be a singer-songwriter.”

LIVE WEBCASTS

Greenville, South Carolina native Chuck Cannon moved to Nashville in 1984, signed his first publishing deal four years later, and five years after that had his first No. 1 chart topper under his belt — and an Academy of Country Music “Song of the Year” award, to boot. The song was “I Love the Way You Love Me,” co-written with Victoria Shaw and fortuitously recorded by John Michael Montgomery on his 1992 debut album. After that, the Cannon-penned hits kept coming, including several of country superstar Toby Keith’s best-known anthems (“Me Too,” “How Do You Like Me Now?,” and “American Soldier”) and other songs recorded by Wynonna Judd, Lonestar, and Cannon’s own beloved wife, singer-songwriter Lari White (who passed away from cancer in 2018). But although his songs as recorded by other artists racked up more than 25 million plays at radio, by Cannon’s own admission it wasn’t until he “started making up songs for myself” that he really started to hit his true artistic stride, eschewing the mainstream in favor of the more roots-music path of an independent troubadour raised on classic country, rhythm ’n’ blues, rock ’n’ roll, and gospel. He released his first album, Mailbox Money, in 1999, followed by God Shaped Hole in 2006, Love and Money in 2008, Symphony of Scars in 2012, and most recently, Machine in 2018.

LIVE WEBCASTS

Del Castillo is a cross-cultural power uniting music lovers of all ages, creeds and colors. Their original music blends rock, Latin, blues, and world music into a cinematic celebration of sound that lifts your soul. It started with the Del Castillo brothers collaborating with friends on a recording that was initially intended as a gift to their family members for the holiday season — but the magic was so undeniable that what was originally intended to be a one-off affair ended up launching one of the most exciting bands to come out of Texas in decades. They’ve since amassed 18 awards including two Austin Music Awards wins for “Album of the Year,” SXSW’s “Band of the Year” (2003) and ASCAP’s “Best Independent Group of the Year” (2005), and had their music featured in such films as Robert Rodriguez’ Once Upon A Time In Mexico and Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill II. As a full band, they can whip a packed club or festival crowd into a joyous frenzy — and that energy comes across just as powerfully when the group is pared down to a lean-and-mean trio of the two Del Castillo brothers and Ruiz, an ultra-charismatic frontman who could give the dynamic likes of Bono or Mick Jagger a run for their rock superstar money even when seated in front of a listening room crowd. The Del Castillo Trio made such an amazing first impression with their Bugle Boy debut in the summer of 2022 that we couldn’t wait to bring them back just three months later. Now coming back for their fourth time, Mark and Rick Del Castillo and Alex Ruiz are pretty much officially part of the Bugle Boy family!

LIVE WEBCASTS

Austin-based singer-songwriter Amy Atchley was born and raised in the Houston/Galveston, area but spent years honing her skills in the Big Apple at legendary venues like CBGB’s Gallery, the Bitter End, and the Living Room. A graduate of the University of Texas’ School of Music, Atchley draws upon a number of influences ranging from classical musings of Elly Ameling to the raw-edged provocation of PJ Harvey. Her fifth album, last year’s Sometimes a Woman is King, was recorded in the Hill Country with producer Robert Harrison of Austin’s Cotton Mather. The songs were written on piano and/or guitar, which serve as the record’s backbone to support Atchley’s signature ethereal and incandescent vocals, giving the music a moody, yet irresistible vibe.

LIVE WEBCASTS

Alabama singer-songwriter Kristy Lee’s recording career began rather auspiciously, with her debut album, 2000’s Lifescapes, released exclusively through Target stores across the country. She has toured both nationally and overseas ever since, capturing the hearts of a loyal international fanbase and earning the respect and enthusiastic support of some of the biggest names in music. She has played prestigious music festivals around the world, including one of her  own — the Unleashed Women’s Music Festival in Pensacola, Florida — and toured and shared stages with, among many other notables, Leon Russell, Jack Johnson, Jason Isbell, Imagine Dragons, and most recently, the Indigo Girls. Although she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2012, her creative spirit is proving to be the therapy that is stronger than the disease. Hailed by one critic as “one of Alabama’s most powerful voices,” evoking blues belters, soul shouters, and gospel divas alike, her music transcends genres, lifts heavy spirits, and promotes healing through both raw authenticity and positive messages. Her latest album, 2023’s The Olive Tree, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Blues Chart, and was praised by Indigo Girl Emily Sailers as finding “Kristy Lee at the top of her art.” “Her Southern gothic passion, penetrating voice and lyrics rattled my bones and brought back ghosts,” Sailers raves. “Sonically and musically, it’s a tour de force: creative arrangements, pure tones, jumping time signatures all kept me alive in the album. Easy contender for my favorite album of 2023.”

The Getocowboys are Tres Womack (vocals, guitar, mandolin), Luke Adair (vocals, banjo, mandolin, guitar, steel), Josh Droegemueller (vocals, violin, guitar), and Byron Kalbus (vocals and upright bass). Many a moon ago, Tres, Luke, and Josh were all core pieces of the Chubby Knuckle Choir — as in the “original” Chubby Knuckle Choir, which reunited after years of lineup changes to play the Bugle Boy’s private 20th anniversary party earlier this year. But long before that one-off CKC jam back in April, the three amigos all pursued a host of other projects, ranging from Tres and Luke’s respective award-winning solo releases to the Sum Brothers (featuring Luke, Josh, Tres, and Tres’ brothers Tim and Drew). They also made frequent cameos on each other’s solo albums, along with longtime friend Byron, and as far back as 2005 began playing shows all together as the Getocowboys, eventually leading them into the studio to record 2008’s Hardluck Symphony. By 2012, though, it seemed that they’d hung that particular outfit up for good — until now. Officially back in the saddle after nearly a dozen years, the Getocowboys have returned better than ever, with Tres revealing that there may even be brand new studio recordings on the near horizon.

LIVE WEBCASTS

Known for her socially astute, literate lyrics and powerful vocals, Patrice Pike will light you on fire. She burst on to the music scene in the ’90s as the electric front woman for the seminal Austin jam band Sister Seven, and carried that momentum right into the launch of her solo career with 2002’s Fencing Under Fire, and, more recently, her recordings (as Pike + Sutton) with her Sister Seven co-founder and longtime friend, Wayne Sutton. Pike’s songwriting has taken an increasingly narrative turn, while her sound has moved steadily in the direction of an eclectic mix of rock and soul topped with a tinge of World Music flavors. She has toured relentlessly, both in the U.S. and overseas, and in 2007 became the youngest member of the Austin/Texas Music Hall of Fame. Pike is also co-founder of the Step Onward Foundation and has helped raise nearly half a million dollars for supporting education and housing and sustainability for young adult survivors of homelessness and children surviving critical illness.

When Guy Forsyth first moved to Austin from Kansas City 32 years ago, he had a bandolier of harmonicas and a carnival barker’s voice that could cut through the noise of the busiest night on Sixth Street. In the mid-90s, he co-founded the Asylum Street Spankers, arguably the most raucous (and at times, randiest) blues, jazz, country, and swing band to ever rock the Live Music Capital of the World without amplification. But by decade’s end, he’d moved on to focus full-tilt on his equally eclectic solo career. Since then, he’s toured the world as jack-of-all-musical trades modern American songster. As Texas Music Magazine put it best, “The insanely talented multi-instrumentalist can put on one hell of a show, alternately dazzling and amusing audiences on a musical journey that ventures from ragtime jazz and Delta blues to socially conscious folk and rollicking modern rock.” Forsyth is equally at home as a solo artist, fronting a rock ‘n’ roll power trio, revisiting his acoustic roots with the Hot Nut Riveters, performing as a folk duo with his wife Jeska, or — as we’ll get to experience this time around for his latest return to the Bugle Boy, jamming with his high-octane, four-piece electric blues band!

Owen Temple is a rambler with the heart of a road warrior, the soul of a poet, and a gregarious spirit that’s as big as the blue open sky of his native Texas. He’s country to the bone, but he’s as comfortable in a coffee house as he is in a honky tonk. Temple has a finely honed lyrical sense, a wry sense of humor, and a knack for blending strong melodies with ingenious wordplay. “I’m a singer-songwriter with a love of traditional music,” he says proudly. “There’s more beauty in the lives and exploits of ordinary Texans than we’re ever going to be able to record, all the eccentric failures and successes of the human condition. My songs are an attempt to capture some of those stories for the next generation. If you’re looking for help with your relationship, ask Dr. Phil. If you want a little slice of Texas history, I’m your man.” Temple has written his share of love songs, but he’s built his reputation with tunes that tell the stories of ordinary folks living their extraordinary lives. His ninth studio release, 2023’s Rings on a Tree, was recorded with Band of Heathens founder and producer Gordy Quist, and the album unfolds with some reflective, some sweet, and some funny songs about people you know or you wish you knew. The underlying theme of the songs — written with Walt Wilkins, Kelley Mickwee, George Ensle, and Nathan Hamilton — suggests that we humans are all a big family with a rich, deeply intertwined history that we can and should celebrate together.

Nichole Wagner took the long way around to answering her calling as a singer-songwriter. Originally from Colorado, she moved to Austin after college, lured by the city’s famous live music scene. She fit right in right from the start, albeit for years only observing from the periphery as a photographer and music journalist. But by the time she finally participated in her first open mic, there was no stopping her, and like wildfire her long-buried childhood dream of being a performer herself quickly became a reality. She released her first EP, Plotting the Constellations, in 2017, followed a year later by And the Sky Caught Fire, the full-length debut that established Wagner “as one of Austin’s most promising young singer-songwriters” — as noted by Austin-American Statesman critic Peter Blackstock. Even more auspicious was 2020’s Dance Songs for the Apocalypse, an eclectic covers EP that found her busting outside of the Americana/folk box with dazzling panache. This will be Nichole’s third time performing at the Bugle Boy — and her first since the release in June of her second full-length album, Plastic Flowers!

A highly accomplished multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter with a voice that’s been favorably compared to crooner Chet Baker, Warren Hood is a seven-time Austin Music Awards winner who deftly blends country, blues, bluegrass, jazz, and folk into an eclectic style all of his own. The son of renowned musician Champ Hood (of Uncle Walt’s Band fame), Warren started playing classical violin at age 11 in the school orchestra, later studying privately with Bill Dick. He won classical music competitions, including the Pearl Amster Youth Concerto Competition and the Austin Youth Award, which gave him the opportunity to perform as a soloist on “Lalo Symphonie Espagnole” with the Austin Symphony. He later balanced studying at Austin High with touring with Charlie Robison and the South Austin Jug Band, and went on to attend the prestigous Berklee College of Music — where he earned the coveted String Achievement Award. Upon returning to Austin, he continued to turn heads not just as an A-list sideman (Joe Ely, Alejandro Escovedo, Bob Schneider, Kelly Willis) and member of the Waybacks and the South Austin Jug Band, but ultimately as a critically-acclaimed band leader in his own right.

LIVE WEBCASTS

San Antonio-native Tish Hinojosa is the youngest of 13 children born to Mexican immigrant parents who, as stated in her song “West Side of Town,” “made a good life the hard way.” She started playing guitar and singing at 14, influenced by her parents’ kitchen radio with its eclectic Latino programming, her older sisters’ ’60s records, and the ’70s folk rock she grew up with. By the time she started college she was playing gigs at local coffee houses and student gatherings on campus. In 1979 Hinojosa was invited to sing at the Kerrville Folk Festival, but was also required to present some original songs. Even though she had never written before, she won the New Folk Songwriters contest that year and launched her career as a writer. Since then, she has won widespread acclaim for her unique and insightful blend of folk, country, and Hispanic music. She sings and writes in Spanish and English and has many bilingual songs, including a full album of children’s songs that has often been used by teachers as a tool for teaching the Spanish language. She has recorded both as an independent artist and for major labels, been featured on Austin City Limits and A Prairie Home Companion, performed at the White House, and collaborated with such artists as Joan Baez, Booker T. Jones, Flaco Jimenez, Pete Seeger, and Dwight Yoakam. In 2018, Hinojosa was inducted into the Texas Songwriters Association’s Music Legends Hall of Fame, and the following year became only the second songwriter to ever be honored with membership to the Texas Institute of Letters. Most recently, she teamed up with fellow songwriters Patricia Vonne and Stephanie Urbina Jones to form the Texicana Mamas, whose debut album was released in 2020.
