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.

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.

John Arthur Martinez

8:00 PM

Acoustic Guitar & Fiddle

In 2004, on the heels of his second-place finish on the TV talent competition Nashville Star, singer-songwriter john Arthur martinez released an album titled Lone Starry Night, which climbed to No. 49 on Billboard magazine's Top Country Albums chart. In 2015, he's reaching for the stars again, so to speak, with the Feb. 15 release of If Stars Could Sing on his own JAM Records label.

Martinez has traveled the world, sharing stages with artists from Dwight Yoakam to Elton John. But his favorite place is his home in Marble Falls, outside of Austin, where he has established the annual FiestaJAM festival to raise funds for local music education programs. He received much of his music education at the famed Cheatham Street Warehouse in San Marcos, where he honed his songwriting chops alongside fellow alums Todd Snider, Terri Hendrix, James McMurtry, Bruce Robison and Hal Ketchum, among others, while attending college. Bruce's brother, Charlie, later suggested martinez audition for TV's Nashville Star; he wound up beating Miranda Lambert for second place.

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

Weldon Henson

Weldon Henson

9:00 PM

Country Singer

Simple & True. Weldon Henson is to country music what an ice cold beer is on a "long, hard, hot, day" - refreshing. The first few notes out of his mouth and you know your witnessing the real deal. Henson's shows are a throw-back to the vintage honky-tonk and Texas culture that brought your grandparents together combined with the rock ‘n roll attitude and approach of the more modern men of Texas country. You're in good hands with Henson. Prepare to swing, 2-step, waltz, and even polka to authentic, brand new honky-tonk music. Then sit down for a few and take a deep breath of original and true country music.

Starlings, TN

Starlings, TN

9:00 PM

Honky-Techno

Since 2001, Steven Stubblefield of Starlings, TN has seen it all: epic natural disasters, personal demons, nervous breakdowns, the death of a mentor and friend, the severing of a great musical partnership, moves from Nashville to Mississippi to Texas, and, at last, with the release of Heartache in 4/4 Time, the completion of a rebirth and a reconnection with his past.
