Texas Music Pickers Presents Josh Ward with Sarah Green and Mark Walton
March 24, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Country Music traditionalist Josh Ward has a unique, almost untouchable voice that grabs your attention. Just a few songs into a set and you will see just why Josh turns heads everywhere he performs. Josh Ward’s influences stretch back to some of the founding fathers of country music like Hank and Lefty, and to the outlaws like Waylon and Willie. Josh Ward’s live show leaves no one disappointed, and everyone asking for more!
Sarah Green is a senior environmental engineer at TAMU from Huntsville, TX. She has rodeoed and played guitar her whole life. Texas Music Pickers is excited to welcome her out for her very first show.
Growing up, music was never at the forefront of this up and coming musicians mind. After receiving his first guitar at age 12, Mark quickly stashed it away and continued to pursue competitive sports. It wasn’t till a back injury suffered from the rodeo circuit that Walton hung up the bull rope and dusted off the guitar. From then on, Marks passion for music exploded as he began to play small local gigs around the Houston Area. Drawing inspiration from the east Texas pines and Brazos Valley Ranch life, he soon began to write dozens of songs. After recording his debut single “See you later”, with co-artist Reese Foster, his music began to reach a wide range of ears across southeast Texas. Coming from a musical family, Walton had a few dinner table conversations and assembled a band rich with family ties. Not long after, Chapter 12 records at Fire station studios produced the band’s first full length album “Firehouse Sessions” that will be available April 2nd. The album combines the rich scenery of Southeast Texas with the deep roots of Austin Blues to create a record that’s got something for everybody. Although he is new in the Texas Music Scene, he is quickly making a name for himself across the south.
