If Igor and Red Elvises aren't in the middle of a tour, they are getting ready for the next one - this is a group that is constantly in motion and consistently evolving. Singer, songwriter, guitarist and showman extraordinaire Igor Yuzov is perpetually globetrotting and in the process he has found scores of wildly talented, entertaining musicians to bring into the fold of this increasingly international party band.

Red Elvises started as a Russian group, playing what they dubbed "Siberian Surf Rock". Since then the band has included musicians from many other countries including United States, Israel, Puerto Rico and Bulgaria, to name just a few. Everyone who performs with them for any length of time brings something different both energetically and musically. At various times shows have included keyboards, accordions, sax, clarinet, trumpet, flute, banjo, mandolin, tuba and many other instruments. Old and new fans alike can expect to be surprised at shows again and again, however the roots of Red Elvises remain the same: Igor's unique brand of humor combined with guitar based rock'n'roll that makes audiences want to sing, dance, scream and shout.

German born Igor Yuzov grew up in the former Soviet Union, where folk music was the norm and rock'n'roll was illegal. A rebellious streak, however, led him to seek out the forbidden records, which could be secretely traded in some places for those who knew where to look. As soon as it became possible, Igor left Russia for America with his folk band Limpopo. The "Crazy Russian Folk'n'Roll" group were personally greeted by Ronald Reagan and proceeded to win Ed McMahon's Star Search.

Recorded in sessions that began late last fall and spilled over into early 2013, Studebaker is a 12-song deep trek, the longest of any of Saenz’s albums thus far.

“I’m always moving forward, going outside of my wheelhouse,
listening to new music and incorporating new ideas,” says
award-winning guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Tommy Castro.
“The contemporary blues scene is full of fresh, new sounds.
It’s an exciting time.” Castro is famed for his signature brand of
tough, rocking rhythm and blues, thrilling fans around the world
with his incendiary live performances. With his turbo-charged
new Alligator Records album, The Devil You Know, Castro strips
his music down to its raw essence as he rockets into the next
phase of his storied career.
The Devil You Know, recorded in the Bay Area with his fiery
new band The Painkillers and produced by Castro and Bonnie
Hayes, is a contemporary blues tour-de-force. The album is an
untamed, high-energy set of 13 songs, including nine written or
co-written by Castro. “For the new album I challenged myself
to add different sounds and new rhythms to my style while
remaining true to my roots. I wrote using ideas for songs and
ideas for sounds together in a way I’d never done before,”
explains Castro, “using drum rhythms to drive the lyrics.” The
tracks—melodic and biting, energetic and fun—are brought to
life with sonic authority by bassist Randy McDonald (from the
original Tommy Castro Band), keyboardist James Pace and
original Painkillers drummer Byron Cage.

Soul Track Mind
Over the last two years, whirlwind front man Donovan Keith and the dapper disciples of Soul Track Mind have become synonymous with raucously entertaining live shows. From house parties to the home of the blues, Antone’s Nightclub, and increasingly outside the friendly confines of the Live Music Capital of the World, Keith stirs crowds to a frenzy. Blending 60's and 70's soul/r&b with flares of jazz, blues, funk and dance this young dynamic group of eight is setting the standard for the modern soul genre.

“I’m on a mission from God,” Taye Cannon deadpanned before breaking into laughter. “Well, maybe not exactly, but it kinda felt that way at first, and it still does sometimes.”

Ok, so the Blues Brothers reference is a little cringe-worthy, but it’s an apt description for the path Cannon traveled assembling Austin-based ROXY ROCA, although the Blues Brothers story starts off in jail, and Taye’s starts in, well, Alabama. Close enough.

“I grew up in the deep south immersed in my dad’s music — Jackie Wilson, Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, James Brown. Basically, if it had a groove, my dad had it. When Motown 25 hit the TV it was all over — I knew this was what I wanted to do. I remember staying up all night with my cousins, emulating James Brown and Michael Jackson in our grandfather’s carport.”

Reteaming with longtime producer/lyricist Steve Taylor for the first time since Newsboys Gold-certified Adoration album, Sun and Shield finds Peter Furler Band -- featuring Dave Ghazarian (formerly of Superchick and Audio Adrenaline) on bass and Jeff Irizarry on drums -- combining an ambitious collection of new songs with a more muscular, band-driven sound that harkens back to the glory days of Take Me To Your Leader.

Texas Music Magazine calls Mingo Fishtrap “the space where melodic pop meets gritty Memphis soul, with a twist of N’awlins funk.” That space is growing like kudzoo vine on the Mississippi Delta, crisscrossing the country with a deep, tenacious groove and a sanctified mission to shake your soul.
While attending the University of North Texas’ College of Music, Roger Blevins, jr. casually asked a few dorm mates to jam on some old soul & funk tunes. Missing that sound that he had grown up hearing, the Mississippi-native quickly found himself surrounded by an eight-piece band, replete with percussion and horn section. That first unassuming encounter lit a fire, and once the college crowd got wind of this old-school sound coming from Bruce Hall, it spread to Dallas’ infamous Deep Ellum, Fort Worth’s legendary Caravan of Dreams and down the I-35 corridor to Austin.

At the heart of Jamestown Revival is a friendship that spans over a decade.

Jonathan Clay and Zach Chance grew up together in the small Texas town of Magnolia. From a young age, they shared a love for music as well as the outdoors. About an hour north of Magnolia TX, there was some old family land with a dilapidated ranch house where they spent the better part of their adolescence.

At one point or another, music from Creedence Clearwater Revival and The Everly Brothers, to fellow Texans Willie Nelson, Guy Clark, and Stevie Ray Vaughan found it’s way through an old pair of speakers that sat on the back porch. The pair spent the day exploring that thousand-acre plot of land, and when the sun went down they took to the records of the songwriters and bands that inspired them. At the age of 22, they moved to Austin and began to craft a sound of their own. Deeply rooted in harmony, they merged the sounds of the South with classic American, and Western rock.

Looking for adventure, as well as a change of pace, they eventually made the decision to head west and make the move to Los Angeles, CA.

Throughout the course of the next 12 months, they wrote what will be Jamestown Revival’s first full-length album. It’s heavily autobiographical, telling the stories of their adventures, their discomforts, and their observations. In order to capture the spirit of the music, the two found a log cabin high within the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. The pair, along with their band and engineer, set out to convert it in to a temporary recording studio. With wild moose right outside the window, and aspen leaves spinning in the wind, they tracked 14 songs. Performed live, with no headphones, and entirely to tape, the process captured the moments in the room.

Now back L.A., the duo are planning to release their music and gear up for life back out on the road. These days, they’re exploring far more than just a thousand acres…

Once upon a time, two young pregnant mothers to be lived in the same apartment building. This was the first time Lenny and Bart met, then again at Longfellow Jr. Hi. Years later, Joe, Rudy and George Horner met at Woodlawn Elementary School. Sometime in 1965 Lenny met Joe surfing at Port A. 1966 saw the collision of chaos at Jefferson High School with Lenny, Joe, Bart, Frank, George and Rudy. The common threads of Beatles and Stones and Rock N Roll, riding the bus downtown to Joskes and The Texas Theater, Jefferson Village and Silvey Music Store, driving around and countless other things forged an unbreakable bond. High School parties at various places brought forth guitars, drums and mayhem. In the seventies with some in and out of college and in and out of the army there became a need of creating music.

In the seventies, radio became a format controlled by marketers and not DJs who wanted to promote new sounds. Rock, and music in general, was being segmented into what sold to the masses and thought by the corporate world as a sure thing and that was it. For people, like our group of friends, the music on the radio, with few exceptions, did not speak to them. If we wanted to experience the type of music we wanted to listen to, we would have to make it ourselves. The seed was turning into the weed.

Before there was Americana, before there was Texas Country, Two Tons of Steel front man Kevin Geil and his original band, “Dead Crickets,” rocked a sound that blended the best of musical worlds and pushed the envelope of “Texas” sound with a signature brand of high-energy country meets raw punk.

The San Antonio-based group packed the small bars and local hangouts and quickly became the Alamo City’s most-loved band, earning them a spot on the cover of Billboard Magazine in 1996. It was the beginning of a twenty year journey for Geil and the 4-piece ensemble.

Releasing “Two Tons Of Steel” in 1994 and “Crazy For My Baby” in 1995 on Blue Fire Records, a sponsorship deal with Lone Star Beer quickly followed. Dead Crickets, renamed Two Tons of Steel in 1996 began traveling outside of Texas, including stops at the Grand Ole’ Opry in Nashville, Tenn., the National Theater in Havana, Cuba, and European tours, to greet fans who had embraced their Texas-born sound. In 1996 they released “Oh No!” on their independent label, “Big Bellied Records.” They followed up the passion project with a live recording at the legendary Gruene Hall in Gruene, Texas, taped during a Two Ton Tuesday Show 1998.

The work’s the thing, the joy, the end in itself. Triumphant, defiant, sprawling, content but never complacent—Centro-matic’s latest album is yet another bold statement in the ongoing dialogue between these four musicians and their supporters. After 17 years, the band is still driven to mine new territories and make a beautiful racket together. Rock & roll veterans now, they know—as the title of their new album advises—to take pride in their long odds.

This championing of tireless underdog determination is a key element of the band’s hard-rocking 11th studio LP. “If there are entities telling you that you can’t do something,” singer-guitarist Will Johnson says, “that there’s no way something is gonna happen for you—take pride in your work and prove them wrong. If it’s worth it to you, you shouldn’t give it any less of a chance because of what someone else says.”

Through all the years of touring and making records, the members of Centro-matic are still thick as thieves. It’s something rare and beautiful considering how few bands who’ve been together this long have their original lineups intact. “It’s always been my hope that our connection and care for each other translates through our music, ” Johnson says. “It’s driven things since the beginning. Centro-matic is an excuse to keep hanging out and getting together as our lives unfold. We became adults together in this band, and it’s still exhilarating and rewarding to be in one another’s company.”

Consistently delivering inspired live performances for their loyal fans at iconic clubs and theaters across the U.S., Centro-matic have become cult heroes of American indie rock. They’re a band’s band—making music for the love of it, amassing nearly two decades worth of critically celebrated material in the process, and sticking to their ideals all the way.

Kevin Welch grew up in Oklahoma. He already toured as a teenager with several bands, before he moved to Nashville in 1978 to work as a songwriter. Singers like Ricky Skaggs, Steve Earle and Don Williams were using his material. At the same time he was very active in local clubs with his band - The Overtones. His popularity grew and in 1988 he signed a record contract with Warner Brothers. In 1990 the album Kevin Welch was recorded and 2 years later Western Beat. Both albums received rave reviews, but did not sell very well. Warner Brothers discharged Welch from the contract.

Dustin Welch was born on a cold Winter Solstice in a haunted plantation house on the grounds of a Tennessee horse farm. His birth room was heated by a red-hot $80 tin stove that burned whatever deadwood trees his dad could drag out of the woods by tractor and chains. He was the first born son of a first born son. His mother was the daughter of an Indian Princess, and the grand-daughter of one of the last living original members of the Osage Tribe. That very night his father made a silent promise, a sacred promise, that the boy would have a mandolin on his fifth birthday.

With The Future Ain’t What It Used To Be, Bleu Edmondson’s long-awaited follow-up to 2007’s critically acclaimed Lost Boy, the southern-fried country rocker embarked on a search for truth, stripping back layers of regret, loss, and longing to uncover a renewed, albeit somewhat painfully soul-baring, view of himself and the world around him. He dug deeper into what the music meant to him as a musician, a writer and a man. “Writing is like holding up a mirror to those darkest corners of our lives that we keep hidden,” confides the raspy-throated singer. “It’s not always a pretty reflection, but it’s real and it matters.” The collection of songs ministers to the saint and the sinner in each of us. It is an amalgamation of those touch points and influences that give us permission to question, confront and raise a little hell on Saturday night.
Bleu’s early years were spent focused on sports rather than music. He picked up a guitar for the first time during his college years, learned a few chords and his future was set. Bleu soon discovered that some of his favorite musical acts – Robert Earl Keen, Radney Foster, Uncle Tupelo – shared a common thread: Lloyd Maines either produced or played steel guitar on their recordings. A short time later, using a tape player in his dorm room, Bleu made guitar/vocal demos of some of his songs and sent the tape to Maines. Quickly recognizing the raw talent on that homemade cassette tape, Maines contacted Bleu and ultimately became his producer. The pairing made two records together – Southland and The Band Plays On – and Bleu credits Maines with giving him his start in the music business.

Women & Work is a love letter from Lucero to its hometown, Memphis, Tennessee. “Having a band in Memphis puts you in a tradition,” says Lucero frontman Ben Nichols. “We started at punk rock shows, not necessarily playing punk rock, but coming from the outside, from a bohemian place.”
The bohemian tradition is just as strong in Memphis as the city’s series of international hits. The popularity of Sun, Stax, Elvis, and Al Green doesn’t diminish the influence of the blues, Jim Dickinson, and Alex Chilton. The bridge between the shadows and the spotlight has become the heart of Lucero: Unafraid to mix pop with their anti-pop, they always charge into new territory.
As punks, Lucero were masters of restraint, with country music beer stains dribbled down the front of their shirts. As whiskey-soaked bohemians, they didn’t shy from sweeping Americana tableaus. And then they added an accordion. “When we started, we were building on a foundation we weren’t aware of,” says guitarist Brian Venable. “Listening back to our early stuff, we hear ourselves reference the old Sun Records. We didn’t hear it or feel it then, but we hear it and feel it now.”
Women & Work, their 8th album, is such an exciting presentation of the band’s eclectic explorations that it makes their 14-year meandering path appear to be a straight line to this very record. “We’re more comfortable in our own skin as a band, more comfortable acknowledging regional influences,” says bassist John Stubblefield. “We wound up making a Memphis country soul record.”
Integrating horns, pedal steel guitar, all manner of keyboards, and even a full-on gospel chorus, Women & Work is a fully realized musical extravaganza. Drawing inspiration from Delaney & Bonnie’s obscure first album, Home, on the Stax label, Lucero’s ambivalence about tradition has been replaced by an exuberant embrace. Women & Work is like Arcade Fire baptized in Joe Cocker and Leon Russell’s Mad Dogs, then warmed with Don Nix’s Alabama State Troopers.
“On My Way Downtown,” the album’s lead song, tells the story: a reserved guitar riff sets the mood, a couple instruments quietly fall in and Ben adds the first contemplative vocals. The song seems headed firmly into the punk-rock-made-pretty territory of their roots—until the organ sustains a chord, the tempo ratchets up, and Lucero becomes a band that doesn’t ask but rather insists that you move your feet. Go ahead hipster—dance!
“Go Easy” is something new for the band: gospel music. A sing-along with a large female chorus, it’s more likely to close the bar than open the church, but when returning producer Ted Hutt (Gaslight Anthem) pushed the band toward a sacred sound, they realized it could cinch the album’s country soul feel.
“You work all week, thinking about women and the weekend,” says Nichols. “’Downtown’ is Friday night, ‘Go Easy’ is Sunday morning. The rest of the record is the party in between.”
Nichols recently moved from stage to screen, playing a lead role in the acclaimed MTV series $5 Cover, directed by Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow, Footloose). The character was a rambling musician, and Nichols brought authority to the performance. In 2009, he released a solo album, The Last Pale Light In the West, a collection of acoustic songs based loosely on Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian.

The debut album from Spanish Gold—a newly formed band featuring former Hacienda guitarist/vocalist Dante Schwebel, Brownout guitarist Adrian Quesada, and My Morning Jacket drummer Patrick Hallahan—South of Nowhere is a densely layered love letter to Laredo, the spirited but often troubled Texas border town where Schwebel and Quesada grew up. “It can be a dangerous and violent place, and the border situation is very scary, but at the same time a lot of the people there are really hopeful and happy,” says Schwebel. Exploring the conflict in what Schwebel calls “feeling disillusioned or desperate about what’s happening around you but still trying to find some hope,” South of Nowhere embodies both a high-charged tension and defiantly joyful mood. And in their seamless swirling-together of rock & roll, soul, psychedelia, and pop—a summery, groove-heavy sound at turns inspired by Donny Hathaway, ‘70s rock, and early-‘90s hip-hop—Spanish Gold reveal the supreme musicianship and easy chemistry at the heart of their collaboration

A lifetime of work has gone into getting Micky and The Motorcars to the forefront of Americana Music, which is where they currently stand. Micky and Gary Braun have been playing music their entire lives and come from a family of people that have always done the same thing. The boys’ paternal grandparents were both full-time musicians, and their earliest memories are of watching their father play with his brothers in The Braun Brother’s Band. Later, with four boys of his own, their father Muzzie Braun, formed a family Western Swing Band. The family toured the United States, making two appearances on The Tonight Show as well as taking the stage at The Grand Ol’ Opry. This laid the ground work for what was to come. After nine years, Micky and Gary went on to form Micky and The Motorcars while their brothers founded Reckless Kelly. Since music and family go hand in hand, it is with this family spirit in mind that the boys continue on their path.

For eleven years, the Motorcars have been touring the US, Europe, and Canada releasing five studio recordings as well as taking part in the Live at Billy Bob’s Series in which they released a live CD/DVD in 2009. They have charted several Top Ten singles on the Texas Music Chart, and had records that have spent an unprecedented seven months on the Americana Chart. Great music along with a tireless work ethic have been the two ingredients that have remained consistent since the band’s conception. The band averages over 200 shows per year and has built a dedicated following of people who appreciate great songwriting, great singing and excellent musicianship.

The music of the band centers around the songwriting of Micky Braun. As a songwriter who has spent years crafting songs alone and co-writing with other songwriting greats, Micky has emerged as one of the best writers of his generation. He also has a voice that is able to elevate his words to another level, and the raw emotion in his delivery connects to audience members at their very core. Micky’s songs and singing are also blessed by his brother Gary’s undeniable vocal ability and guitar playing. Gary’s voice combines with Micky’s to create the unmistakable harmony that can only happen when two brothers sing together.

The brothers are joined by Victoria, Texas native Dustin Schaefer on lead guitar. Dustin joined the band in 2011. Having started out listening to, and playing along with the greats of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Dustin soon immersed himself in the style of the telecaster country greats. The marriage of these two styles melds perfectly with the music of The Motorcars. The energy and dedication to his craft that Dustin brings to the band is evident in music and onstage. Houston native Joe Fladger signed on as the band’s bassist in December of 2011. Joe moved to Austin in 2001 and spent years playing in various bands in Austin’s fertile music scene. His sense of humor, rock solid playing, and dedication to the greater good of the team make him a welcome addition to the fold.

Players play, so the future of Micky and The Motorcars will hold countless songs, shows, and a dedication to their fans that is unparalleled. As their legion of followers grow and word continues to spread, the journey of the band will continue to play out in a way that combines a dedication to music with a dedication to family.

His cross-cultural stew blends cumbias, vamp, salsa, surf, reggae, blues, and Latin-tinged polkas. It has been a long road, coming from Dumas,Texas, a dusty little west Texas town where in the 7th grade he started playing in garage bands. In his late teens, he was often lured to the beaches in Southern Mexico and was drawn to the Mexican music he was hearing around him. Back in Texas he joined up with future members of the Texas Tornados and formed a band known as Joe King Carrasco & El Molino and in 1978 released his 1st LP titled
