Hayes Carll

American Songwriter has ranked Hayes Carll's "Another Like You" as the #1 Song in their Top 50 Songs of 2011!

"He spins a yarn with fresh wit, details a failure with unflinching honesty, and everything in between remains admirably cliché-free.” - Los Angeles Times

Ray Wylie Hubbard

...writes the kind of songs that make you want to ride along no matter where he's going, because you know it's gonna get strange somewhere along the way. His ability to segue seamlessly from primal exclamations of carnal lust into songs about salvation without pausing for irony; and a craftsmanship that manages to rhyme mescaline and gasoline and Volkswagen with dragon while painting vivid portraits of characters both real and unreal, all evoke a sense of place that is larger than life but in no way made up.

Marley's Ghost
" . . . remarkable, distinctive voices . . . giddily eccentric eclecticism . . . a heady, subversive treat." -- No Depression “Marley's Ghost has earned cult-band status over 20 years of spirited musicianship, multi-part harmonies and irreverent humor.” --Paste Magazine
“This West Coast quartet deftly dashes across decades of American music to create a sound that’s seeped in tradition but never bogged down by traditionalism."-- LA Weekly.
Marley's Ghost's latest album was produced by the legendary "Cowboy" Jack Clement.

Sisters MoralesPatrice Pike

Rolling Stone Magazine called her “Tina Turner, Bessie Smith, Janis Joplin, and Robert Plant all rolled up into a tiny but explosive package.”

She's much more than one of the most dynamic live performers in the world, she's an artist of substance with a compelling life story that is only beginning to unfold.

Sara Hickman

She eats life up and shares it with you like a huge buffet. Simple words find it difficult to describe this remarkable soul. Back in her home state of Texas, her talent is as legendary as her heart is big. An amazing song writer and guitar player, her music can be simple and playful (while she sings about making love to a train) when, suddenly, she sweeps you into the intensely heart breaking voice of a mother to a murderer.

Greg TrooperSideshow Tramps

The Sideshow Tramps exist for those who wish that the Sex Pistols, AC/DC and Led Zepplin had formed a band together with Bob Dylan and Tom Waits.

They hit their audiences with a powerful high-energy show that earned them “best stage act” from the
Houston Press Music Awards.
