January 30, 2014 @ 9:00 pm - 11:55 pm
THE LONELY HUNTER
The Lonely Hunter is a rock band originally from College Station, TX. Despite the town’s profound country music background, The Lonely Hunter has developed an original sound that has drawn crowds all over Texas. Most of the guys hail from the Dallas area and have spent their younger years around the big city scene. Now that they are in Central Texas, these guys have been a driving force in the local scene, and have begun to branch out into the surrounding cities. Their sound can be defined by their beautiful melodic textures. In their latest self-titled release, The Lonely Hunter worked with Producer, MD Thompson, to create a 6-song EP that grabs you by the ear and holds you by the heart. The Lonely Hunter believes in music with a purpose and a meaning, and their on-stage performance shows nothing else.
Votary is a contemporary pop band hailing from College Station, TX. Soon after becoming a full band, Votary won the Texas A&M Battle of the Bands competition and quickly began gaining popularity in the Bryan/College Station area. In the Spring of 2013 Votary released their debut album “Ground Beneath Us” which included the popular single “Hey Teresa” . Votary is currently focused on writing and recording new material for their next EP set to release in the Spring of 2014. Recently Votary has had an extensive live performance schedule including opening for David Ramirez, Tim Halperin, and Green River Ordinance! Votary’s sound has been compared to Ben Rector, Parachute, Matt Nathanson, and Ben Folds. The band includes: Jack Thweatt – Vocals/Guitar, Travis Thompson – Keyboard, Michael Burgess – Bass, Conner Wright – Drums.
Formed in 2010, Valise has quickly risen to become a prominent indie-rock band in the Dallas area. With influences like Circa Survive, Mew, and As Tall As Lions, Valise puts a fresh spin on a familiar genre to create a sound uniquely their own. Their debut “Dreamcatcher EP”, recorded at The Vanguard Room in Lakeland, FL, was released in Summer 2011, and earned them both regional and national attention. Valise will begin touring early next year, followed up by a full-length record in the Fall.
For Lindsay Harris, performing and making music is a conversation and a way to connect with many people at once. Her influences of choice are jazz, folk and pop and her inspirations are you; you just may or may not know it yet. Nationally recognized by organizations such as AT&T and Nabisco, Lindsay is an up-and-coming Central Texas weekend favorite, but she’s only just getting started. She’s new, she’s fresh and a straight up player when it comes to great music. So let her be the first to strike up the conversation, and then try to tell us she’s not keeping you rockin’ and coming back for more.
Andrew James is a singer/songwriter from Texas living in Nashville.
