Bourbonnais

Austin, TX
Somewhere in between jazz and blues you'll find the music through the heart... of Sharon Bourbonnais. When you see her fingers glide effortlessly across 88 keys and hear her sultry voice inviting you to share in clever, insightful stories, you immediately sense this is not your typical singer/songwriter fare. Occupying a fun niche between New Orleans inspired jazz and Texas blues, Sharon’s music swings and sings of love lost, new romance, party dance and panache. Austin360 On The Record: Austin American Statesman: Peter Blackstock "Sharon Bourbonnais, “A Girl’s Gotta Play.” The leader of the band Tres Bourbonnais perhaps walks in the footsteps of longtime Austin favorite Marcia Ball, mixing swampy blues and rootsy jazz with her piano playing and sassy vocals front and center. Tight rhythms and occasional blasts of horns spice up Bourbonnais’ good-time groove on these 10 tracks." Read More

Dirty Streets

Memphis, TN
Hailing from Memphis, Tennessee, Dirty Streets are a throwback to the good ...old days of soulful blues/boogie rock. Formed in 2008, Justin Toland (guitar/vocals), Thomas Storz (bass), and Andrew Denham (drums) found themselves brought together by a shared love of classic acts like Led Zeppelin, Humble Pie, and Cream. Together, the trio makes a kind of revivalist rock that feels retro without seeming fake, adding enough of their own sweat and soul into their smoky blues to make the music seem genuine. After years of playing shows, the band released the full-length, Portrait of a Man, in 2009. Blades of Grass, recorded at Ardent Studios in Memphis, appeared in 2013; the group returned to Ardent two year later for 2015's White Horse. They've just finished recording their new album at Sam Phillips Recording Studio with Producer Matt Ross-Spang. Read More

Nashville, TN
Tami's music is a like a riveting mystery novel you can't put down. With ea...ch song she sings, she reveals another clue to her soul. Wrapped in her voice is the sweetness and twang of country. The sorrow and guts of rhythm and blues. And the hope and reverence of gospel. When sewn together, Tami is a portrait of strength---a strong woman with a story that needs to be told. Through different musical genres, Tami's debut CD, "Velvet & Steel," creates conversations on survival, humanity and undying love. Bobby Braddock, who penned 13 number one country songs including Tammy Wynette's "D- I-V-O-R-C-E" and George Jones' "He Stopped Loving Her Today," conceived and produced the CD.
