2017 Grammy Nominated for Best Americana Album!

There isn't anything Slim Bawb can’t play and if he couldn’t use his hands, well, he’s got that covered too. He’s a singer,songwriter and plays all things baring strings to playing bass with his feet. Yes, we said feet.

Slim Bawb or aka Bob Pearce is a native Californian who lives in New Braunfels,Texas and has a swampy-blues Louisiana sound, that you would think, just arose out of the fog off the banks of the Mississippi. His crew is called “The Fabulous Stumpgrinders” - all coming together to capture that “swamp” sound faster than an alligator’s snapping jaws. A musical concoction of country, funk, blues and more. Playing with his feet “lefty” and “stinky” on his Livid Custom “boot bass”, Slim Bawb has quite an original way of serving up his Lousiana swamp-style with a side of gumbo and some Cajun cornbread to soak it up.

"Slim Bawb is like a hearty homebrew when the usual generic light beer doesn’t do the trick anymore." - TXMusicTV

A Texas Powerhouse Returns
Terri Hendrix
& Lloyd Maines

Terri Hendrix
ListenWatchWebsite
Nearly 20 years after the release of her debut album, Two Dollar Shoes, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Terri Hendrix is about to unveil the most ambitious project of her career. In fact, it’s not just one, but five — four albums and a book — all of which will debut in 2016. Titled Project 5, the event begins with the release of Love You Strong, on her own Wilory Records label. Though each segment of Project 5 is distinct, they’re linked by their relationship to the concepts of love, hope, faith and understanding. Love You Strong explores issues of trust, loyalty and conviction, while putting love under a microscope. She and producer/performing and business partner Lloyd Maines never record less than stellar work. (“Lil’ Jack Slade,” the song they co-wrote with Dixie Chicks Martie Maguire and Emily Robison Strayer, earned a Best Country Instrumental Performance Grammy in 2002, and the album it’s on, Home, won Best Country Album.) She’s also turned her mantra, “own your own universe,” into not only a business plan, but a blossoming nonprofit arts center in Martindale, just outside of Austin, known by the acronym OYOU.

Morgan Ashley & Briana Adams

MORGAN ASHLEY
Originally from Columbus, TX, now making College Station home, Morgan grew up raising cattle and barrel racing, but it wasn't long before the Texas Music bug bit hard and she knew that she belonged on a stage somewhere in Texas, playing the music she grew up loving and introducing fans to her own unique brand. She tested the waters with her first solo self-titled EP which came out in April 2017. Within a few months she drew the attention of Hit Songwriter and Multi-Platinum Producer, Steve Freeman. The two began collaborating on new music and in December of 2017 began recording her now available full length album, KARMA.

BRIANA ADAMS
Texas singer/songwriter Briana Adams is a sweet-natured Southern crooner that really just wants to share her music with the world. She has a big Texas voice and an unmistakable style that's all her own. And if you catch a little twist of blues and rock'n' roll in the vocal, that's not by accident.

Briana grew up in Winchester, Tx. She has opened for well-known Texas artists such as Randy Rogers Band & Charlie Robison. Briana recently release her debut album titled, "Dive Bars & Old Guitars".

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 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."

Midnight River Choir
Midnight River Choir
ListenWatchWebsite
The story of Midnight River Choir is proof that sometimes great bands just happen. One night, four strangers ended up on a late night float trip down the Guadalupe River. As they made their way down the river singing songs, the beautiful harmonies floated into the heads of sleeping campers. The next morning, the boys overheard a man telling a friend that he was “awakened by a midnight river choir.” That was all it took. Eric Middleton (lead singer and guitarist), Justin Nelson (lead guitarist), Jeromy Yager (former bassist), and Mitchell Pyeatt (drummer), realized the magic of their combined talents and began writing and performing together under that River-God given name.

Their music speaks volumes about who and what they are. Their lives have been woven together by a strong thread of energy both on and off stage. That energy is raw and natural and soaked up from the earth through their bare feet. They believe that what you get is what you give and they give everything they have to their crowds. When that kind of energy lands back at the feet of the boys it is something of supreme intensity. And no one ever forgets it.

Tish Hinojosa
"A talented songwriter with an understated but utterly unaffected delivery,
vivid, touching, pointed, playful, engaging." - The Washington Post

Tish Hinojosa
ListenWatchWebsite
“I’m gonna find me a new song to sing,” declares Tish Hinojosa on the title track of her new album, West.

One of 13 children born to Mexican immigrant parents in San Antonio, Hinojosa has dedicated her career to playing music from the southwest, starting out in Tejano before moving on to singer/songwriter folk, border music and country. Hinojosa’s new originals are at the heart of the collection, from the romantic tribute to the missions in her hometown (“Church of the Mission Bell”) to channeling Patsy Cline in a bittersweet country shuffle (“Can’t Say It Matters Anymore”) and even a co-write with son Adam Hinojosa-Barker (“I Can Be the Wind”).

West is a welcome addition to a resume which features releases on A&M, Warner Bros., Rounder, Watermelon and Lone Star, a command performance for President Bill Clinton and Hillary at the White House with Robert Redford, and numerous prestigious honors, including the NAIRD Indie Folk Album of the Year for 1992’s Culture Swing. Tish Hinojosa’s trip continues its long and winding road.
