Brian Kremer

Brian Kremer

6:00 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.

Roger Wallace has something rare in country music today: honesty, creativity, and more than enough talent to back it all up.

That voice attempts to speak not only in notes and words, but in a distinct musical vision, as well as unique views on the world around him.

Elizabeth McQueen

Elizabeth McQueen

8:00 PM

Singer/Songwriter

Born in Little Rock and raised in Columbia, Maryland, Elizabeth McQueen started her music career 13 years ago in Austin by fronting her own band, The Firebrands, and making name for herself as one of the music city's most infectious voices. Known for her beautiful and timeless vocal style and buoyant and joyous live shows, she quickly became the one one to watch upon her arrival in Texas. One short year after settling in Austin, she was named by the Austin Chronicle as a young musician to watch. Of her 2003 SXSW performance the Austin Chronicle's Jerry Renshaw said: " What Elizabeth McQueen is doing these days is a far cry from Patsy Cline, Connie Smith, and Kitty Wells and certainly miles away from the crop of Nashville angels. In a marketplace that's saturated with traditional female country singers, that difference, along with her charm, talent, and attitude, may be just what she needs to really stand out."
