Texas Twang #16: The Legend of Bill Haite

CD Review - Kevin Anthony "North Star"

Cajun music is alive and well and doing time in South Texas. While you might know Kevin Anthony from his Twin City Playboys days, his latest offering, North Star, is instead steeped in deep traditional country, the likes of which Bakersfield masters might still be heard playing today. There are roots here, and they run deep.From the opening track, “Hey You,” it’s clear this is the kind of music you might accidentally find surfing…See More

"Lucca, thanks for sharing music by folks who would rather spend their nights strumming six-strings with an intimate crowd who loves them for it!"

"I have loved Emily's voice from the very first time I heard her in Tree Sounds Studio in Atlanta, GA in 2009. She's a breathe of first air to a somewhat forgotten era in music. Congratulations to a lovely and down to earth young lady.…"

this week in texas twang #14: Emily Bell

Meet Emily Bell —a  rootsy rock-n-roll songstress who followed her musical aspirations with one sweet-ass rambling voice — now she's Nancy Sinatra, Austin’s answer to relevant retro. She could’ve been the star act on a ’60s teenage television dance show, singing like a long-forgotten Marvelette. Her double-sided debut (on vinyl no less – available January 31 on iTunes) is quite stark…See More
