Jamie Thomas

Jamie Thomas

6:00 PM

Singer/Songwriter

Jamie Thomas had his musical epiphany not at the proverbial crossroads but a schoolyard in Astoria, Queens, where the music of Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones and others touched his soul and inspired him to play music as well as write songs. He honed his skills as a performer playing New York clubs in a band before striking out on his own, making his bones as a solo act in the ground zero of the American folk movement.

Brian Kremer

Brian Kremer

8:00 PM

Songwriter

Brian Kremer is most noted for his smooth voice, which PopMatters calls "an evocative instrument in itself" and his original, often-melancholy folk/country tunes that Austin.com describes as "exquisitely pleasurable heartache." But he now also delivers his own guitar-centric takes on pop standards from the 1910s-1940s, making them audience favorites in Austin, as well as in Dallas, NYC, and his home state of Vermont. While building on a classical choral career that culminated in a 2003 Grammy nomination with the Dale Warland Singers, a debut solo album (2008's Climbing The Vine), and a steadily growing audience in Austin and beyond, Brian hit a wall in 2011 with tendon injuries in his hand, forcing a yearlong hiatus. The break was tough but fruitful as he refined and focused his direction - listening, writing, and honing in on this new, yet familiar sound. Brian staged his welcome-back show in July 2012 to a packed room at Austin's famed Cactus Café and is back to performing again. He's crooning, picking, whistling, and charming rooms with his signature sets of originals and classic interpretations.

Bruce Smith

Bruce Smith

8:00 PM

Springsteen-esque Singer/Songwriter

Bruce Smith continues the work praised by Eric Brace of the Washington Post as "powerful folk songs with a conscience" and what Neal Fagan of  Performing Songwriter Magazine called "literate, descriptive lyrics with a unique point of view articulated in a way that's intelligent and accessible".


The Bruce Smith Band features two time Grammy Award Winner Randy Caballero (formerly of La Mafia and Xelencia) on keyboards, Jasper on lead guitar, Jamie Pender on bass, Bryan Austin on drums and Bruce Smith on lead vocals and rhythm guitar.

Ricky Stein

Ricky Stein

6:00 PM

Singer/Songwriter

Ricky Stein's music vies for equal footing between two of his strongest influences: traditional roots-rock/Americana and progressive indie-rock. A reverence for music history combined with the desire to create something different and new drives the Austin singer/songwriter to create music that reflects the spirit of his hometown, both past and present.

A lifelong Austinite, Stein got his start playing opening sets for Calvin Russell and J.T. Van Zandt at East Austin's Long Branch Inn. A weekly gig at the Hole in the Wall soon followed, and before long Stein and his band were performing at some of the best venues in town, including the Saxon Pub, the Nutty Brown Cafe, and the Continental Club. In 2009, Stein released his first album, Crazy Days, produced by Matt Hubbard and recorded at Willie Nelson's Luck, TX headquarters. A national tour followed, along with strong reviews and solid sales

Mrs. Glass was born in Iowa in 1985. He hitchhiked to New Orleans as a teenager and moved to Austin after Hurricane Katrina.

Ian Fry is a native Californian. He has studied Vedic Science at the Maharishi University of Management. He moved to Austin in '09.

JWW & The Prospectors

JWW & The Prospectors

9:00 PM

Western Swing Band

JWW & the Prospectors are the most exciting, most authentic western swing band around today. True to the spirit of Texas, they are known both for raucous live shows and a reverence for the traditions of their musical ancestors.

Top-notch professionals, members of the Prospectors have toured all over the United States and Europe, with acts including Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys, Deke Dickerson, Kim Lenz, the Racketeers, and Wanda Jackson.

The band was brought together by a shared passion for the great honky-tonk and western swing music of the mid-20th century, including artists such as Milton Brown, Ernest Tubb, and, of course, Bob Wills.

While some of their peers dabble in music from this period, the Prospectors uniquely capture the unbridled energy of the great bands of the past, bands that had to keep field hands and roughnecks happy and dancing till the cows came home. While they have received accolades from fellow musicians for their instrumental virtuosity, entrancing vocal harmonies, and the caliber of their songwriting, it is their sheer joy of entertaining an audience that makes JWW & the Prospectors a band not to be missed.

Over the last three years, the Prospectors have gigged throughout Central Texas. Their versatility is such that they are equally at home playing smoke-filled honky-tonks, elegant hotels, and events ranging from corporate parties to bar mitzvahs. In Austin, they have regular gigs at Ginny's Little Longhorn, the Driskill Hotel, the Broken Spoke, and the Continental Club.

In 2009, JWW & the Prospectors released a well-received EP of western swing and hillbilly standards. In 2011, the Prospectors released It's High Past Time, their first full-length CD. It's High Past Time primarily features material written by the band and demonstrates the authenticity of their sound, ranging from honky tonk tearjerkers to Tejano waltzes to impeccably arranged swing.
