Pop-Up Sessions from Luck Reunion 2022

Every year during SXSW, Willie Nelson and family invite music fans to their compound outside of Spicewood, TX for Luck Reunion, a day of live music, BBQ, and maybe a little of Willie’s left-handed tobacco. Our crew was on hand to capture stripped down performances with some of this year’s performers, and we’re excited to share them with you. So roll one up and enjoy our pop-up sessions from Luck Reunion 2022!

Adia Victoria – “Magnolia Blues”

Adia Victoria enchanted us at Luck Reunion with her darkly atmospheric song, “Magnolia Blues.” The gritty and swampy guitar mixes so perfectly with her honey voice, that you can almost see the magnolias bloom. You can find “Magnolia Blues” on Adia Victoria’s 2021 album A Southern Gothic. Be sure to check out her latest single, “Ain’t Killed Me Yet.”

Sir Woman Live in 1A

Two years ago Kelsey Wilson’s (Wild ChildGlorietta) Sir Woman was just about to turn the lights on with their debut before the power was cut. Cruel irony put Party City on hold for the Bitch EP, and the reimagined debut is a better record for reflection on Sunday after the party–a more appropriate vibe for Fall of 2020. However, the debut full-length Sir Woman is almost here, releasing on April 20th via Nine Mile Records, and judging by their recent performance in Studio 1A the good feelings put on the shelf have ripened to perfection. See for yourself.
