Friends who jam together stay together- or at least that it is for The Nude Party. Their nightly jam sessions starting in Boone, NC eventually brought them here to Austin, TX to talk with KUTX host Laurie Gallardo.  Lead vocalist/guitarist Patton Magee, vocalist/lead guitarist Shaun Couture, organist/pianist Don Merrill, bass player Alec Castillo, percussionist Austin Brose, and drummer Connor Mikita work together to create music that is an homage to 60’s frat rock. They’ve opened for artists like the Arctic Monkeys and Jack White and they recently graced the stage at Austin’s Antone’s, playing songs off their recently released self-titled release. Our KUTX studio audience was treated to a live performance that made us nostalgic for retro rock.

Yes, Charley Crockett is indeed related to the King of the Wild Frontier, but he has made a name for himself with his Americana soul music. This Texas native hails from The Rio Grande Valley and, after some soul searching elsewhere in the United States, has come on back home to the Lone Star State and settled in Austin. Crockett remains busy in the studio and on the tour bus. He released not one but two albums last year, Lonesome As a Shadow and a cover album Lil G.L.’s Blue Bonanza. He played 200-plus shows in 2018 and will be playing Any Baby Can’s 40th Anniversary Benefit Concert at Moody Theater w/ Shinyribs May 3rd at ACL Live.

Crockett spoke with KUTX’s Elizabeth McQueen about his Texas roots and his upcoming debut at the Grand Ole Opry June 25th and gave our concert club members a taste of his troubadour sound.

The Wild Reeds stepped back into Studio 1a to share songs off their new album, Cheers. With three chief songwriters, the group comes together to produce music that represents the unique styles of the group while creating a final product that flows despite the distinct characteristics of each song. The Wild Reeds played a show at Antone’s the same evening they jammed out with us, then they were back on the road to continue with their tour. We have the full recording of their studio session to hold onto until next time.

Steve Gunn 4.24.19

Steve Gunn has little to no extra time with the number of projects he works on. Within his expansive 15 year career in the music industry, this New Yorker’s new album, The Unseen In Between, came out in January and has brought him to Austin for a show at Barracuda tonight. The work ethic Gunn puts into his music has paid off with The Unseen In Between receiving praise from Rolling Stone and other notable publications. Gunn sat down with KUTX’s Rick McNulty and gave us a taste of the new album with a Studio 1a live session. Until Gunn returns, we recorded the session to hold onto and share with you, of course.

Tallest Man on Earth 4.23.19

Posted by on Apr 23, 2019

Four years is a long time, don’t you think? Lucky for us, Tallest Man on Earth’s four-year hiatus ended with a new album out on April 19th. Kristian Matsson recorded most of the new album,  I Love You. It’s A Fever Dream,  in his Brooklyn apartment. A lot of reflection went into this album, specifically when it comes to love. Matsson talked with KUTX’s Jay Trachtenberg about New York inspirations and the different niches of the creative process. Making the most of his time in Austin, Tallest Man on Earth performs tonight at the Moody Theater. For now, enjoy listening to his live session with us in Studio 1a.
