Singer-songwriter BOB LIVINGSTON has never been a traditional Texas country musician living the honky-tonk life even though he's spent more than his share of time on the roadhouse circuit with some of the most colorful and rambunctious musicians in Texas. As a member of Austin’s legendary Lost Gonzo Band, Livingston toured and recorded with such musical visionaries as Jerry Jeff Walker, Michael Martin Murphey, Ray Wylie Hubbard and many more. Livingston played an integral role in helping to create the music that first earned Austin the designation of “Live Music Capital of the World” and helps explain why he was inducted in to “Texas Music Legends Hall of Fame” in 2016 and the West Texas Walk of Fame in 2018.

Ginger Leigh rocks out with the best of them; ax-swinging, sweatin', groovin', beltin' chanteuse. She can make your jaw drop like no other, ripping your heart out with anthem-style ballads. She can crack you up with her Ellen-style dry wit, her old-school-Bette stage antics, classy and crass. Once a fan described Ginger Leigh as "Like Adele with a Joan Jet kick in the ass."
She is Adult Contemporary/Pop/Rock, yet she is Jazz, she is Rock, she is Latin, She is one-of-a-kind, sexy and funny. She is a female-Elvis-like chanteuse. Ginger Leigh is a smart artist, a business woman, a music-maker, a recording artist, a writer, an actress, a hostess and a stage-lover who goes unchallenged and who is uniquely made up of nothing but pure love, hard work, natural talent and unstoppable drive.

Emily Scott Robinson
“Her music is a cathartic outlet for listeners as she sings about everything from true love to the loss of innocence. Robinson digs deep into her past experiences to create music that is altogether melancholic, comforting, and sweet.”
North Carolina native Emily Scott Robinson has traveled a quarter million miles and counting, paying her dues along the dusty highways of America’s wild country in the RV she calls home. Along the way, she’s captured the stories of the people she met and expertly crafted them into the songs featured on her gorgeous debut studio release, “Traveling Mercies.” Named one of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country and Americana Artists to Watch” for 2019, Robinson received critical acclaim from Billboard, No Depression, and American Songwriter for the stories captured on her new album.

“I could go on for quite awhile about Rachel. She was playing and writing when I met her. She was 13, maybe 12. She’s always been kind of a reverse influence. I look at her and she is capturing in the moment so many things that songwriters who got started later are trying to remember. When other kids were having their teenage fits, Rachel was writing protest songs. When other kids were having teenage crushes, she was writing love songs, in the moment. She has matured gracefully. Her work is mature, but it’s her and her perspective. I’m in wonder that she was writing songs that were age appropriate and is still doing that. And she’s beautiful and eloquent.”
