Wistful, sensitive, and with a touch of nostalgia – Eleanor Friedberger has built a strong solo career that speaks to her roots as an artist. Raised in a musical household in Oak Park IL, Eleanor started the band The Fiery Furnaces with her brother Matthew Friedberger in the early 2000’s. The band came to popularity after the release of their album “The Blueberry Boat” with music that was quirky and deconstructed. The band went on hiatus after 2011 after which Eleanor started her solo career.

While The Fiery Furnaces had a special strangeness to their sound, Eleanor’s solo music is Folk inspired and Classic Rock rooted with elements of her avant-garde alternative past integrated in. Eleanor released her fourth solo album, “Rebound,” May 4th to the critical acclaim of Pitchfork, The Guardian, and many other publications. She played in Austin at 3TEN ACL Live this Wednesday as part of her world tour. You can buy/listen to “Rebound” here.

Americana band Western Youth first formed in 2011, when singer/songwriters Taylor Williams and Matthew Gregg began writing songs together in Austin. They were joined shortly after by drummer Brian Bowe and the trio released their first EP “Leaving the Station” in 2013. Since then, they’ve been regulars on the Austin club circuit leading to an unofficial show at South by Southwest in an eclectic backyard venue, where they met local singer/songwriter favorite Graham Weber. In 2017, Weber asked the guys to back him up on an EP he was recording. Weber soon after joined the band, which now includes Sam Powell on keys and bassist Sean Spiller.

Frontman Taylor Williams writes songs that strike squarely at the intersection of tuneful country and soulful rock ’n’ roll. Their music is both robust and rustic with a special swagger to it. Western Youth won a spot in the official 2018 SXSW lineup, earning the band some much-deserved recognition and attention and setting the stage for the release of the band’s first full-length, self-titled is out September 21st with a release show at Spiderhouse Ballroom that evening.

In just a few years, through her international concert appearances and her award-winning Naïve recordings, 29 year-old Lise de la Salle has established a reputation as one of today’s most exciting young artists and as a musician of uncommon sensibility and maturity. She made her London Symphony Orchestra debut with Fabio Luisi, and in 2016 returned to the orchestra with Antonio Pappano. Luisi, who invited her to become the first Artist-in-Residence of the Zurich Opera in 2014, has also frequently featured de la Salle with the Vienna Symphony. She has played across the US including performances with Boston Symphony, Chicago Symphony, San Francisco Symphony and the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

Lise came into Studio 1A prior to her first ever performance with the Austin Symphony Orchestra. She will be performing Sergei Rachmaninoff’s beloved Piano Concerto No. 1 as part of a showcase of three great Russian composers. Alexander Glazunov’s Carnaval Overture and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Manfred Symphony will also be performed for the concert. “The Mighty Russians, Part III” will be opening this weekend with shows Friday and Saturday at the Long Center for the Performing Arts at 8PM.

Austin native Will Courtney hails from a musically driven family with his playwright father, Ragan Courtney, and Grammy award-winning mother, Cynthia Clawson. Will cites both parents as a major influence on his development as a musician exposing him to a variety of artists as a child from Harry Nilsson to Randy Newman. Influences aside, Will focuses on writing music that is above all else, honest. It’s an honesty and humility that can be heard in his soft, wistful singing style and sincere lyrics.

Drawing from a wide range of styles, Courtney’s new album Crazy Love showcases a knack for poignant Americana and folk song craft buoyed by unflinching honesty and realism. Courtney enlisted his backing band The Wild Bunch (Dan Wilcox on lead guitar, Travis Garaffa on drums, and Dave Morgan on bass) and an array of Austin-based musicians to lend a hand including Mike Molnar (The Bellfuries) on guitar. Will’s mother is also featured on the song “Finally” which was co-written by the mother son duo.

You can see Will Courtney at his release party for ‘Crazy Love’ at the Continental Club this Friday 9PM. But don’t worry if you can’t make that show because Courtney will be following up with one at Waterloo Records next Tuesday.
