Beat Root Revival
Beat Root Revival
ListenWatchWebsite
Beat Root Revival are a multi-instrumentalist roots duo, combining elements of Folk, Blues, Country and Rock n Roll to create a foot stomping, melodic sound, made up of power house harmonic vocalists Andrea Magee and Ben Jones.

Originally from England and Ireland, Ben Jones and Andrea Magee came to the USA 3 years ago like their ancestors before them, looking for a new life and to share their music far and wide. With just a Guitar, a Bodhran and a hunger in their harmonies and songs, Austin, Texas became their adopted home and they have developed an ever growing fan base gigging regularly while writing prolifically. In 3 years they have recorded 3 albums, been on national tours with Jonathan Jackson from ABC’s Nashville and the Grammy award winning Brian Wilson and the Grammy award winning Brian Setzer for his most recent Christmas Rocks tour. They are currently working on their fourth album and they are very excited for what the next year has in store!

Two Texas Favorites Share the Stage
Chuck Hawthorne
& Libby Koch

Chuck Hawthorne & Libby Koch
Chuck Hawthorne: Berkalin Records recording artist, Chuck Hawthorne, is a singer/songwriter whose songs are influenced by growing up around cowboys and ranchers on a cattle ranch in Amarillo, spending 21 years in the Marines (including multiple tours in Iraq), and listening to the recordings of Townes Van Zandt, Nanci Griffith, Lyle Lovett, and Steve Earle. His musical compositions -- heavily influenced by the culture of the west and drawing from the same well as his Panhandle music forebears Terry Allen, Joe Ely, Butch Hancock, and Jimmy Dale Gilmore -- strike universal heartstrings from a singularly vast and barren landscape. He writes about train lines, coal mines, love, death and misfortune. His songs are sometimes deadly serious; sometimes raucous, and always passionately written and delivered.

Libby Koch: Texas Americana singer-songwriter Libby Koch (pronounced "coke") is a “country meets soulful” (Free Press Houston), “feisty Texas songbird” (Country Music People) who “sings her story with a little twang, some slide guitar, and a lot of heart” (Texas Monthly). Libby is working on the follow up album to her critically acclaimed 2016 LP Just Move On (Berkalin Records). Working in Nashville with Grammy-winning producer Bil VornDick, she draws on legends from Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn to Dolly Parton and Emmylou Harris, among others, to craft “true cryin’ and leavin’ country songs.” Combining her country soul with a seventh-generation Texas troubadour’s storytelling skill, Koch fills her songs with intimacy and honesty. Like the most timeless country classics, they’re the kind that make you feel good about feelin’ bad.

American Dreamer
American Dreamer
ListenWatchWebsite
American Dreamer is a folk ensemble from Austin, TX. They play original folk music with rich string accompaniment. Their music is an original and lush sound they call ‘orchestral folk’. American Dreamer strives to create a sound that, while steeped in both folk and classical music, is not precisely either, with the hope of exploring the space in between. While their music is fundamentally simple, it unfolds into a multi-layered soundscape. Beautifully blended strings coupled with honest lyrics and rich vocal harmonies provide listeners with a lot to sink their ears into.

A powerful voice with songs to match!
Sheila Marshall
Sheila Marshall
ListenWatchWebsite
"Sheila Marshall has compelling songs, a delicious cool voice, and fire and soul. I dig." - Ray Wylie Hubbard

Hubbard co-produced Sheila Marshall's new record — and also had a hand in co-writing two of its most wickedly assertive songs, "Watch Me Move" and the "Ain't Gonna Cuss Your Name Anymore." But as unmistakable as that patented Ray Wylie "grit 'n' groove" imprint may be, Good to Be Me is first and foremost Marshall's record through and through: equal measures sassy and soulful, sacred and sexy, with Faces-worthy swagger to spare and uncompromising spirit to its bluesy core. And although it's not the first album she's ever made — counting EPs and side projects, it's actually her seventh — it's arguably the first one to capture the full rafter-rattling force of both her powerhouse voice and her uncompromised artistic vision.

Texas Music Hall of Fame Inductee
Miss Lavelle White
Blues and Soul
Miss Lavelle White
ListenWatchWebsite
Hailed as an avatar of "true blues and a class act" (Portland Oregonian), Lavelle White was born in Jackson, Mississippi. She grew up in cotton fields and churches, the daughter of a gospel piano playing single mother. Taken under wing by Clarence Hollimon and Johnny Copeland and mixing with such musical giants as Albert Collins and Guitar Slim, she began singing in clubs and won a deal with Don Robey's Duke label in 1958. White went on to work and tour with such greats as BB King, Buddy Guy, Otis Redding and James Brown.

In the 80’s, Clifford Antone booked White into his Antone's nightclub in Austin, where she found herself in a community of admirers. In 1994, White released her first-ever album, “Miss Lavelle,” to considerable praise. Jazz & Blues Report hailed it as "one of the tastiest R&B finds of the year." She has since released two more albums to rave reviews.

In 2006 Miss Lavelle was inducted into the Texas Music Hall of Fame. The same year her ensemble was voted the Best Blues Band in The Austin Chronicle Music Awards.

She has been performing original music since the age of 13, and has won multiple awards including Best Female Vocalist and Best Songwriter in the Austin Music Awards.

“Her musical sophistication and the uncanny maturity of her lyrics astonished me – gave me chills – and made me realize (a little sadly) that it had been a long time since I’d been enthralled. What a wonder, to be enthralled again. After the show I told her and anyone else who would listen, “You’re the most gifted young performer I’ve seen in 26 years.” - Austin Chronicle

“Texas singer-songwriter Sahara Smith creates Cinemascope-like wide-screen portraits of romantic passion, loneliness and unrequited love in her richly impressive, intensely soulful debut album.- LA Times

Two Esteemed Texas Songwriters Share the Stage
Bill Small
& Jaimee Harris

Bill Small & Jaimee Harris
Bill Small is no stranger to diversifying his skills; he’s made his living as a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, Mystiquero, entrepreneur, artist, producer, vocal coach, business and personal coach... all facets that combine into a potent musical force evident on his latest release. Call Me Lucky is Bill’s latest solo offering...a soulful and thoughtful album full of plenty of stomp and groove. Coupled with Bill’s unmistakable vocal style, it makes for a journey just as entertaining as his life story.

Jaimee Harris is poised to become the next queen of Americana-Folk, a slightly edgier Emmylou Harris for the younger generation. Her new album draws comparisons to Patty Griffin, Ryan Adams, and Kathleen Edwards – all writers who know how to craft a heartbreakingly beautiful song with just enough grit to keep you enthralled. Harris writes about the basic human experience, in a way that is simple, poetic, and often painfully relatable.

South Texas Music Walk of Fame Songwriter
Michael O'Connor
Michael O’Connor
ListenWatchWebsite
In 2010, after well over 20 years of playing his trade in dive bars, listening rooms, theaters and festival stages across America and Europe, journeyman Texas songwriter and guitar player Michael O’Connor finally got his due. Or at the very least, a very fine next best thing: his very own star on the South Texas Music Walk of Fame — located right in O’Connor’s hometown of Corpus Christi. O’Connor’s name is now part of the same Lone Star constellation as such Texas legends as Guy Clark, Kris Kristofferson, and the late Doug Sahm and Freddy Fender.

Now based in Denver, O’Connor is pulling away from the sideman trip, but not slamming those doors behind him. “At one time I was in eight bands,” he said, laughing. “I had something to prove when I was younger. Now it’s more important to me to play my gigs.” He didn’t trample his Texas roots. His 2015 release “Bloodshot Vagabond” was recorded in Houston with producer/bassist Jack Saunders and drummer Rick Richards. The songs, most penned by O’Connor, some co-written with Adam Carroll and with fellow top-flight accompanist Jeff Plankenhorn, are gritty and greasy, so is the music; an amalgam of rock ‘n’ roll, blues and acoustic music with a drill-bit backbone.

Ezra Charles has been one of the most popular piano players in Texas for over thirty years, touring with the original-music horn band he fronted everywhere from the southwest U.S., to Italy and Ecuador.

Fans of his last production, “The Story of Boogie Woogie,” will be delighted by this all-new show with similar entertainment value and musical intensity titled "A Date with a Songwriter"

This will be a night of performance and storytelling, where Ezra tells the fascinating back-stories behind the songs he wrote that propelled him and his works into becoming one of Houston’s top bands. Also presented are new, as-yet-unheard songs he has continued to develop in the interim.

Ezra has been honored with seven Houston Press Awards for Best Keyboards, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the San Antonio Blues Society, as well as appearances in the International Blues Competition in Memphis.

Fun Fact:During his college years at Rice University he invented a special microphone for pianos, the “Helpinstill Piano Pickup,” an amplification system now used worldwide and bearing his surname, and achieved international fame as a technical innovator. The Bugle Boy uses one of his Helpinstill Piano Pickups to mic our 1933 Baldwin M Baby Grand Piano.
