Austin singer-songwriter Emily Bell exists on a scale that slides easily between soul, southern blues, and classic rock. At any given moment she’s playing one, the other, or a hybrid of the two, with equal skill in each. With her music, Bell strives to capture the sound and the spirit of the artists she admires, the neighborhood she grew up in, and the tunes that originally inspired her pursuit of music. In 2006, she moved out west, singing with former members of Tony Toni Tone and Lucy Pearl. It was then that she realized that Texas was the place she was meant to be, and she moved back to Austin.
Emily Bell’s debut album, In Technicolor, will be released on May 28th. On Saturday, she’ll be in Studio 1a playing live on KUTX. Be sure to listen in!

Singer and songwriter Robert Ellis got his start with a residency at Houston club Fitzgerald’s Whiskey Wednesday nights, a night that was exactly what it sounded like: a drunken throwback to classic country and bluegrass music. That drunken throwback evolved into Ellis writing his own songs, which were still vaguely reminiscent of that classic country style. He self-released his first album in 2010, which received such an overwhelmingly positive response that he was quickly scooped up by a label to release a second album the next year. His newer album, Photographs, was named one of the 50 best albums of 2011 by American Songwriter’s Magazine. His brand of country/folk is not to be missed.
On Friday night, Robert Ellis will play a show as a part of the KUX Live at Stateside and the Paramount concert series at, you guessed it, the Stateside at the Paramount. Today he stopped by Studio 1a to play live on KUTX. Give the session a listen below!

The Austin Lounge Lizards have been a staple in the city’s music scene since the band was founded in 1980. The band prides itself on its literate lyrics and pointed (and occasionally political) sense of humor, which coupled with their musicianship, has given them a brand that’s tough to forget. Since the band came together, the lineup has shifted and changed a bit, but they’re without a doubt the same wacky and witty band that Austin knows and loves.
Last week, the Austin Lounge Lizards released a new album, Home and Deranged. On Saturday, they visited Studio 1a to play live on KUTX. In case you missed it, listen to their live session right here!
