Tough Old Bird:
Formed in a rural corner of Western New York by songwriting brothers Matthew and Nathan Corrigan, Tough Old Bird plays modern folk music that reflects the forgotten landscape it comes from. Since its formation in 2013, Tough Old Bird has released two full-length albums and two EPs, and has taken its music to coffee shops, listening rooms, music clubs, dive bars, campgrounds and front porches across the United States. Intricate acoustic guitars, nimble harmonica and poetic lyrics give Tough Old Bird a sound that is at once modern and ancient.
Austin’s Lonesome Heroes reside at the cosmic junction of indie rock and country. Led by frontman Rich Russell’s never-ending call of the road, the group have toured extensively behind two acclaimed albums across continents on both sides of the world, while never straying too far from their “Cosmic Americana” roots. Described by KUTX as “the soundscape that occurs when indie rock and country artfully cross paths,” The Lonesome Heroes have played over 1000 shows, turning indie-rockers into two-steppers (or vice-versa) by way of the rhythm of the road.
Small Houses (Austin, TX)
Small Houses is a Flint, MI and Austin, TX based alt-country project featuring the songs and poems of Flint, MI native Jeremy Quentin. Artfully crafted finger-style guitar playing, and softly sung melodies describing the people, love, and homes of Quentin’s life.
“Quentin refuses to sleep sometimes, unable to rest on any complacency when it comes to what we find value in. he knows beauty and he knows sadness and it puts them into the same vase.” – Daytrotter
