Founder, Colin Hendrick, was quoted "There is such an amazing depth of talent in this town and we are excited to see such great artists year after year supported by our members in such a meaningful way. This year's nominees included such talent as Akina Adderley, Black Pistol Fire, Bright Light Social Hour, Carolyn Wonderland, Croy and the Boys, Daniel Eyes, David Ramirez, Eric Tessmer, Los Coast, Jackie Venson, Kinky Machine, Mobley, Sarah Sharp, Warren Hood, Whiskey Shivers, The Deer, and Los Coast.

Ryan Salata Brings Vigor Into Songwriting

 Native-Texan singer, songwriter Ryan Salata was surrounded by music as a child but didn’t pick up a guitar until his early years of college. Heavily influenced by his surroundings, Ryan draws inspiration from the funky urban sounds of the city leaning toward sounds with a Mo-town beat or Jack Johnson vocals. Ryan released his first EP, Thoughts on Paper, in December 2015 and has received an overwhelming response from fans. Ryan continues to tour locally while working on new music for his next release. "Devil Eyes" is one of Ryan's new tracks that marks his progression as a musician and songwriter. Make sure to keep an eye on Ryan as he continues his musical journey!

The Bishops Release Chilled Single "Say My Grace"

Austin can't get enough of the hip-hop trio, The Bishops, who are rolling out their latest track "Say My Grace". An ode to family, which is of obvious importance to the siblings, "Say My Grace" also preaches humility as the group's profile grows larger and larger. The spacey, dripped-up beats by Troy Bishop, and silky vocals by Cara Bishop coalesce into an earworm of a track. The Bishops are young, ambitious and looking to tear down the barriers of music genres while shirking the expected. Keep an eye on these trailblazers,  who are definitely just getting started.

Blissful, Down-tempo Beats Fill Hovvdy's New Video For "Petals"

Local favorites, Hovvdy, are the slacker music aficionados whose music embodies Austin's soul. Gearing up for its Feburary 5th release, Cranberry, is Hovvdy's sophomore album that is being released on Double Double Whammy Records. Having described their own music as Pillowcore, Charlie and Will are choose to dive into a solipsistic dream, that shimmers with shoegaze, and simmers with Sonic Youth. "Petals" is a suburban love letter, chock full of neighborhood imagery, family bonds, and everyday beauty. The music video is a near carbon copy of every 90's MTV alternative rock video that which portrays the group jamming in their seemingly childhood home. While the over-saturation of indie music in Austin continues, Hovvdy differentiates their music by savoring the moment rather than rushing to the chorus. Pre-order, Cranberry, now available here: https://hovvdy.bandcamp.com
