Clint Alphin and Lizi Bailey
Lizi Bailey is Houston-based singer, songwriter, worship leader and recording artist. She is married to Matthew and they have 5 children together.
In addition to solo performances, she leads worship for all kinds of special events and conferences, as well as at her home church, Faithbridge, in Spring, TX.
Hailing from North Carolina, Clint has drawn inspiration from his home state’s heroes. “There is so much great music that has come out of North Carolina,” Alphin says. “James Taylor is perhaps my biggest influence; his phrasing and harmonic melodies are what have inspired me to first write songs.”

Matt Harlan CD Release
Houston favorite, Matt Harlan is a troubadour of the first degree, bringing his handcrafted songs to stages across his home state of Texas, the USA and Europe.
Harlan is a winner of multiple songwriting accolades, from outfits like American Songwriter, the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Billboard. He was named Singer-Songwriter of the Year in the 2013 Texas Music Awards and was featured alongside a stellar cast of characters (Lyle Lovett, Guy Clark) in the documentary, “For the Sake of the Song.”
His first two studio albums were well received by national and international Americana radio, both earning the #1 spot on the Euro Americana Chart. “Raven Hotel” his third – and possibly best – record also hit the top spot on the Euro charts after its release in 2014. As with each collection, the newest one features a musical roux that showcases Harlan’s literary grit with a variety of moods to fit the many themes on the record.
In his recent travels, Matt has shared stages with Americana greats such as Guy Clark, James McMurtry and up-and-comers like John Fullbright.

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 a female-Elvis-like chanteuse. Ginger Leigh is a smart artist, a business woman, a fearless personality with her heart on her sleeve, 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.

Albert and Gage
Albert and Gage – short bio (8-10-18) Austin, Texas duo Albert and Gage (Christine Albert and Chris Gage) have a personal and musical chemistry that radiates from the stage. The joy they experience making music together is evident as they travel through their musical roots, moving from country and folk to blues and French chansons. The integrity of their musicianship and the rare blend of their voices create a unique and cohesive sound as Gage effortlessly switches from guitar to piano and accordion throughout their set to follow the mood of the music. Christine Albert has been described as a “wondrous singer with a beautiful focus and unrestrained grace”, and had a prolific recording career as a solo artist before meeting Gage, including the acclaimed “Texafrance” series, a bilingual tribute to her European family. Chris Gage has been called "...songwriter, singer, dobro player, ace guitarist, keyboard player, mandolin picker, and a generally electric powerhouse with inspiration to spare." He’s toured with Red Willow Band, Roy Clark and Jimmie Dale Gilmore and is currently playing guitar with Jerry Jeff Walker. Since teaming up in 1996 they have released six albums on their own MoonHouse Records label and built the successful MoonHouse Studio, where Gage maintains a full schedule as an in demand producer and musician.
