CHAD COOKE BAND : Whatever It Takes

Unabashedly Texan, the Chad Cooke Band has successfully merged the vintage western flare of Dwight Yoakam and Glen Campbell with a contemporary, unique and high-octane stage presence that rivals that of your modern country acts. The band utilizes three part harmonies that is reminiscent of bands  such as Alabama and The Eagles. Following the success of their hit single "Oil Man" which saw widespread popularity seemingly overnight, The Houston, TX based quartet hopes to achieve greater heights with their sophomore album release Risk it All which underscores the narrative of a band willing to lay it all on the line. www.chadcookeband.com    


DREW FISH BAND : Better Place

Texans are chauvinistic about their state because there is no place in the world that can hold a candle. Texas is friendly, self-reliant people, amazing beauty and unique experiences. Drew's music captures the essence of Texas : floating down the Guadalupe River at Gruene, watching the surf roll in at Port Aransas, listening to the rhythm of a windmill in Lubbock. www.drewfish.com

EDDIE SAENZ : Hometown

There are songs that go in one ear and out the other, then there are songs that resonate throughout the heart and soul long after the final note fades. “Hometown” falls under the latter category.  Often leaving the listener in a meditative silence, this runaway tale becomes instantly relatable to anyone who has ever held an ounce of contempt for the place they call home. From the monotonous small-town life that spans generations like a disease, to broken homes, to love better left alone, the character finds more than enough reasons to leave without looking over his shoulder.  Although accompanied by an angsty slide-guitar lead and a moody rhythm section, the song shines brightest in between the lines. www.eddiesaenzmusic.com
