Ones to Watch: The Painted Redstarts

All this week, KUTX is highlighting the “Ones To Watch”–seven must-see artists at SXSW 2014.

The Painted Redstarts are leading the charge for a new generation of Austin bands. The group features some familiar names: Marlon Sexton, son of Charlie Sexton, and William Harries Graham, son of Jon Dee Graham. While only in their teens, the members are already making a mark. At this year’s Austin Music Awards ceremony, they’ll be performing with several of Austin’s best under-18 bands as the “Youngbloods Choir.” Take a listen to their profile below, and catch them at SXSW 2014:
