…Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland are
poised for a major breakthrough.” — NPR Music

“Inuk throat singer Tanya Tagaq is like no one
you’ve ever heard, anywhere.” – The Globe and Mail
The Austin 100: A SXSW 2015 Mix – NPR Music
Acclaimed Inuk throat singer Tanya Tagaq will perform music from her breakthrough album Animism, the recent winner of Canada’s coveted Polaris Music Prize for Album of the Year, beating out major contenders such as Arcade Fire and Drake. Check out “Uja”, featured in NPR Music’s The Austin 100: A SXSW 2015 Mix (Listen HERE). With Animism, Tagaq has been featured in The New Yorker, The New York Times, NPR All Songs Considered, Rolling Stone, Noisey, Wondering Sound and many more (View Highlights HERE).
Much like Animism, Tanya’s performances are as compelling and captivating, as they are cathartic and primal. Her Polaris performance is a perfect example. Please see for yourself HERE. For more information on Tanya Tagaq, click HERE.

“With the soul of a poet and the look of a Sons of Anarchy extra, Tulsa’s
John Moreland has been gifted the sort of gravely, booming voice that
does Bruce Springsteen proud and a similar understanding
of the universal human experience.” – Oklahoma Gazette
Some days, being John Moreland has to hurt. As others bury experiences and stifle regrets, Moreland pokes old wounds until you’re sure they’ve got to be bleeding again. It’s painful. But in Moreland’s care, it’s also breathtakingly beautiful. When the Tulsa-based artist unveiled In the Throes in the June of 2013, the album didn’t just charm listeners — it stunned them. American Songwriter, No Depression and others began urging people to pay attention, as did the hit FX television series Sons of Anarchy, which featured three Moreland tracks. On April 21 via Thirty Tigers, Moreland will release High on Tulsa Heat, his highly anticipated third solo album. Self-produced and recorded in a home studio in Oklahoma, High on Tulsa Heat offers another round of the lyrics-first, gorgeously plaintive songs that have earned him devoted listeners across the country.

Sons Of Bill
“…one of those delightful surprises that music so rarely springs in the age of digital access and instant discovery.” 4 stars – The Guardian
“Gorgeous…Virginia’s scholarly heirs to R.E.M.“ 8/10 – UNCUT
Charlottesville, Virginia brothers Abe, James and Sam Wilson (aka rock outfit Sons Of Bill) released their latest album Love & Logic on September 30 via Thirty Tigers with critical acclaim both in the U.S. and Europe. With Grammy nominated producer and former Wilco / Uncle Tupelo drummer Ken Coomer at the helm, Sons Of Bill elevated their artistry to new heights by making an album that is as current as it is rooted in the foundations of early alt-country, long before the term Americana was coined. The album received coverage from American Songwriter, Relix, Paste, Examiner, Rolling Stone Country, Country Weekly and many more. USA Today wrote that “Sons Of Bill proves that good alt-country isn’t dead.”

“Wild Child’s two charging folk-pop albums are defined by
their mix of classical and home-spun.” – The Chicago Tribune
Voted “Best Indie Band” for back-to-back year’s at the Austin Music Awards, Wild Child has continued to tour nationally in support of their sophomore effort The Runaround. Popmatters writes, “Wild Child has transitioned in the space of a single album from rustic, homespun intimacy, to opulent, lush orchestration.” Over the last year, the band has performed on CBS Saturday Morning and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. They were also featured on NPR World Café’s Sense of Place with a focus on Austin (Listen HERE). The band has recently sold out shows in Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Minneapolis and has over 15 millions streams on Spotify. For more information on Wild Child, click HERE.
