September 13, 2012 @ 8:00 pm - 2:00 am
Authenticity. While sometimes difficult to define, you almost always know it when you see it. Case in point: Tim Halperin. Halperin’s distinctive voice, soulful piano vibe and acumen for writing original songs packed with raw emotion have catapulted him into the nation’s musical consciousness as one of its brightest young singer/songwriters. Stylistically blending an infectious mix of pop and rock with a hint of jazz, Halperin’s trademark catchy melodies, pure vocal tonality and rhythmic piano style have struck a chord with audiences from coast-to-coast. Combine that with his unmistakable Midwestern genuineness and sincerity – interwoven throughout every original song and performance – and you have the ingredients that keep a steadily growing fanbase coming back for more.
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.
There is no better way to describe Trannie Stevens songs than relatable, true, addicting, haunting, and the real deal. After winning the 2012 Texas Music Hall of Fame Collegiate Songwriter of the Year in late May, this singer-songwriter has taken the music world by storm. She recently has been making the rounds through coffee shops and venues throughout Texas after releasing her EP with Uproar Records at Baylor University. Although Trannie is new to the scene, one would never guess. Her fan-base is rapidly spreading because of wonderful people just like you who have stumbled upon her, and have found that there’s something truly unique about this girl. Trannie experiments with piano based pop with a subtle, sassy jazz influence. If you love Sara Bareilles than you are sure to love this intriguing new artist.
