Sour Bridges
Sour Bridges
ListenWatchWebsite
Somewhere up on Cripple Creek, there’s an old log cabin where the gang used to gather to pass the bottle and trade tall tales. Sometimes, a back-porch pickin’ party would break out, and they’d spend hours strumming country-rock classics, drivin’ that train through the Band, the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield and various Burrito Brothers, and even entering ex-Beatles territory on “Crippled Inside.” (Yes, dogs did howl along with their lusty harmonies on that one.)

That’s the actual story of Austin band Sour Bridges’ birth. Well, maybe the cabin was really an apartment, and maybe it was closer to Lady Bird Lake (and maybe the dogs merely snored), but it did have a porch where friends gathered, bottles were passed and picking parties occurred. The songs also moved into original territory rather quickly, sprouting into a sound they call browngrass—“like bluegrass, but a little dirtier”—but it grows from that same country-rock soil. In fact, you can almost hear the history of American roots music in the strong harmonies and intricate arrangements of the band’s fourth album, Neon Headed Fool (2019).

Chuck Hawthorne & Libby Koch
Chuck Hawthorne & Libby Koch
ListenWatchWebsite
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.

Hailing from Texas, Alabama, and Georgia respectively, now neighbors in Austin, BettySoo, Grace Pettis, and Rebecca Loebe are bewitching audiences with sumptuous harmonies and unforgettable songwriting. Friends now for a decade, they first met at the legendary Kerrville Folk Festival, each winners of the annual “New Folk” award. Luscious harmony singers, effortless instrumentalists, seasoned touring artists – they recognized what each can accomplish individually could be made all the stronger by collaboration. Now, the spark has been set, the fire lit. Their individual and collective fans are eating it up. A video of “Fast Car” garnered twenty-thousand views on Facebook within days of posting. The harmonies are thrilling; echoes of Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt’s Trio recordings. The songs are powerful and spare. The stage presence confident and assured. Their collabortion has resulted in their debut EP, Waterline, under the band name NOBODY's GIRL, released in the fall of 2018 on the Lucky Hound label.

Respect for honest labor is a central theme in Wood & Wire’s 2018 GRAMMY Nominated album for “Best Bluegrass”, North of Despair ( Blue Corn Music), with songs populated by people like songwriter Tony Kamel’s own grandfather, who built the family’s hunting lodge in Llano, Texas with his own two hands. The characters on the album live large, and aren’t afraid to share their opinions about the modern world. This kind of vivid, haunting songwriting focused on lives spent deep in the countryside is a hallmark of Texas songwriting. But it’s the melding of this hard country songwriting with high-octane bluegrass instrumentation that makes for Wood & Wire’s signature sound.

"When I listen to a Susan Gibson song, I know she is sharing a piece of her
heart and soul with me." - Lloyd Maines

Susan Gibson
CD Release!
Susan Gibson
ListenWatchWebsite
One of the reasons Susan Gibson always keeps a banjo close at hand, be it in the studio or at every show she plays, is because she likes the "lift" it brings to counterbalance a particularly heavy lyric: "Almost like it's got a smile attached to it," she says. Her naturally buoyant melodies and warmly reassuring, conversational singing and writing voice more often than not provide all the lift she needs to light up any song, room, or mood. For proof, just listen to The Hard Stuff — the award-winning Texas songwriter's seventh release as a solo artist and her first full-length album since 2011's Tight Rope. As she sings on The Hard Stuff's disarmingly playful title track, "Nothing lifts a heavy heart like some elbow grease and a funny bone" — and even when Gibson's not laughing at herself, her refreshingly clear-eyed perspectives on matters of life, love, work, and loss (sometimes all within the same song, as in the invigorating opener "Imaginary Lines" and the deeply moving "Wildflowers in the Weeds") illuminate the whole album with a spirit-charging current of resiliency. Of course, anyone familiar with Gibson's music knows that she's had that in her all along, from her salad days in the beloved Amarillo, Texas-based Amerciana band the Groobees back in the ’90s and from the get-go of her solo career with 2003's Chin Up. It was even all there at the very beginning, when she wrote a little song in college called "Wide Open Spaces" that grew up to become (with a little help from the Dixie Chicks) one of the biggest country songs of all time. Turns out all she had to do to rediscover it and get herself back on the road to embracing both life and art was to heed the best advice her father ever gave her, three little words that millions of Dixie Chicks fans (and a whole lotta Susan Gibson fans over the years, too) sing along to at every show: "Check the oil!"

"Woody Russell is the consummate singer/songwriter, and one of the most believable lyricists and storytellers I’ve heard in quite some time. Russell’s latest endeavor, Carry It Up, packs a wallop of pop-infused jazz, soul and rock flavorings that will send you on an unforgettable expedition through fascinating hues of ingenious songwriting and immaculate production – track after track after track."- Jazz Quarterly

Critically acclaimed, award winning vocalist, guitarist and composer, Woody Russell has always been a genre-blurring artist and Carry It Up is no exception.

As a lyricist, Woody digs deep in to intimate narratives and is equally comfortable addressing a broader social consciousness. There is no mistake that Russell possesses a voice which places him as a frontrunner on the jazzier side of the singer-songwriter scene. And, not unlike a primary influence, Van Morrison, he navigates the sound of his words with a rhythmic precision and melodic expression akin to a jazz improviser. Then there’s his guitar playing, which Blues Revue likened to “the fearlessness of Jeff Beck”.

Listen to NPR's Terry Gross interview of Sam Baker

Sam Baker is a man of few words. Always beautifully chosen, and fully wrought. Words placed like plants and objects in a Zen Garden. Baker turned inward, to relearn the use of his body and brain after a Peruvian train bombing almost killed him in 1986. It’s taken years to heal. Time to reconnect. The road back was arduous, but it opened up new vistas in art, poetry, and music.

Baker approaches life with a positive attitude – "Life is a gift. I went through a lot of bitterness- a lot of anger. But those things are toxic. Gratitude for what remains is more helpful than resentment for what was lost. Ultimately, I came to understand that these days are wicked short and terribly beautiful. All I've got - no matter what I hold in my hands, drive around in, or put in the bank,- all I've got is this one breath, and if I’m lucky, I get another.”

“She's a rock singer with a soulful heart and one foot in the blues, the other in jazz.” – Mary Houlihan, Chicago Sun-Times 2010

Patrice Pike and Wayne Sutton are the founders of the seminal jam band Little Sister, also known as Sister 7. Their songs are literary, emotionally riveting and eclectic, drawing from Roots Rock, Rhythm and Blues, Soul and Jazz influences. Patrice is an accomplished rhythm guitarist, vocalist and drummer and Wayne’s lead guitar and singing all together creates a big sound as a duo as well as with their full band.

“Patrice Pike will light you on fire. With nothing more than her guitar and her musical partner in crime, Wayne Sutton seated to her side, Patrice Pike filled the stage... The lush, full sounds were enthralling. As she performed crowd favorite "Jackknife Girl," it was hard not to think about how truly amazing what one girl and a guitar with one guy with a guitar can do. They filled the space with sounds as full and rich and inviting as any band five times their size.” - Jenny Block for EdgeDallas.com
