Adam Carroll & Chris Carroll
ListenWatchWebsite
Adam Carroll: A Texas Songwriter born and raised, Adam Carroll takes the events of ordinary lives and turns them into deeply moving, often humorous songs. With seven Indie CDs supporting regular tours across the USA, Canada and Europe as "one of the hippest songwriters on the Texas music landscape", this engaging Americana guitar-picker has earned further critical acclaim with song placements in the Grammy nominated film, "Country Strong" and others.

Chris Carroll: Chris Carroll is originally from St. Catharines, Ontario. She now lives in San Marcos, Texas with her husband and music partner Adam Carroll.

A rare performance with
Kelly Willis
& Jamie Lin Wilson

Join us tonight as Kelly Willis and Jamie Lin Wilson swap songs from
their newest albums. (click Watch links below for new songs)

Kelly  Willis
KELLY WILLIS
WATCH

It’s been more than a decade since Kelly Willis’ last individual effort, Translated From Love, and remarkably (her two recordings with husband and producer Bruce Robison aside) "Being Blue" is her seventh solo album in a career spanning nearly three decades.

JAMIE LIN WILSON
WATCH

Jumping Over Rocks marks her second full-length solo album, but she’s not the new kid. She cut her teeth fronting and co-fronting beloved bands including the Gougers and the Trishas. Now, her place as an acclaimed singer-songwriter on her own seems fated, imbued with a singular blend of freshness and road-earned wisdom.

"Bluesy songs full of energetic, roots-rocking flair." - Lonestar Music Magazine
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.

“Americana songwriters are a dime a dozen these days, but few are

“He entertains you in a way that’s so fresh and understated that you are smiling before you know it, and suddenly you’ve just had a great time.” – Walt Wilkins

He can’t help it. Songs keep Jackson Emmer up at night. Born with an unrelenting creative spark, Emmer has quietly built his reputation as a songwriter’s songwriter on the outskirts of country music. His work blends humor with heartache, and tradition with exploration. Emmer’s whiskey-smooth, conversational singing style is as distinct as his writing. He often croons at a whisper, drawing listeners in with his relaxed, understated delivery. Lately, Emmer has drawn critical acclaim for his 2018, sophomore album, “Jukebox.”

Emmer is often compared to artists like John Prine, Guy Clark, and Roger Miller. He has opened for or co-billed with: Leon Bridges, Della Mae, John Oates, and The Wood Brothers, to name a few.

Jackie Venson

Obsessed with music from an early age, singer/songwriter Jackie Venson immersed herself in its study, attending the Berklee College of Music to practice classical piano. However, it wasn’t until she switched to the electric guitar, that her long-simmering passion for emotive live performance was realized. Abandoning the straight-laced world of classical for the raw power of blues and soul, Venson has since been tirelessly honing her skills into an intoxicating amalgam of Blues, Rock, R&B and Soul with deeply heartfelt lyrics. Having just released her latest studio album “Joy”, Venson is in the midst of her global “Joy to the World” tour, which will see her playing shows all the way from Alaska to Austria and back!
