River Jam Artist Preview: The Cole Trains

Sprouting from the deserts of Arizona is an Americana powerhouse of a band co-fronted by Texan Shane Britt. Britt is joined by TJ Taylor at the forefront of the roots rock project which borrows as much from Red Dirt as it does the larger sonic sounds of Tom Petty and Foo Fighters. Speaking of the Foos, the Trains debut record, Lucky Stars, was recorded with Cody Canada at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606 in Los Angeles. This is a band on the come-up that has been touched with greatness and is paying it forward. We don’t get bands from Arizona torching

River Jam Artist Preview: Austin Meade

River Jam Artist Preview: Sundae Drivers

Out of the ashes of a central Texas family band, Spivey Crossing, has emerged a formidable group known as Sundae Drivers.  Powered by the unique aspect of three lead singers and twin guitars, this band has grown a sizable and loyal following across the region and state.  Derrick Dutton gets most of the attention with his guitar prowess, but don’t sleep on the rhythm section of Chad Kasik on drums and Dave Pratka on bass.  Holli Kasik is an emotive vocalist and Lucas Montgomery is as engaging with his mandolin as he is his vocals.  Josh Williams provides a youthful
