Sturgill Mania


It’s been quite some time since an artist captured the collective heartbeat of the underground country scene quite like Sturgill Simpson has done. ¬†His rise has been historic and meteoric. ¬†Fans of all stripes are flocking to Sturgill as some sort of country music savior. ¬†His latest Texas run is the most recent indication of his current status. ¬†Sell-outs at large venues at Beatles/Garth rates occurred. ¬†Fans are traveling from far and wide to see their latest hero. ¬†Sturgill’s easygoing attitude and calm nature about it all has only endeared him to people further. ¬†There is a tiny hipster minority of folks waging a Sturgill backlash but they can’t stem the Sturgill tide. ¬†Who’s coming to see what all the fuss is about this weekend? ¬†Many of the GW crew will be at both Stubb’s shows and the Billy Bob’s gig. ¬†See you there. ¬†Come say hi. ¬†As a music fan, this is livin’ the dream.

April 2 – Stubb’s – Austin, TX

April 3 – Billy Bob’s – Fort Worth, TX

April 4 – Lubbock Memorial Civic Theater – Lubbock, TX

April 5 – Stubb’s – Austin, TX¬†

{New Braunfels} Artist Spotlight: Devil’s Hollow

devilshollow_artistspotlightDevil’s Hollow is a dry creek bed in north-western Comal County hanging off the Guadalupe River west of Canyon Lake. A road sign pointing toward Devil’s Hollow fell on front man Justin Murray’s eyes at just the right time one night when he was headed home after a gig and booking another gig over the phone. He went with it, figuring he could come up with something else later. Several years later, Devil’s Hollow Trio (as it was known then) is staffed with six heavy hitters that have varied connecting ties back to previous (and current) other bands, all of which have helped develop Devil’s Hollow into a blues-fueled sound interlaced with hints of funk, latin, jazz and rock. Front man Justin Murray’s vocals and his blues guitar along with bassist Jimmy Hartman’s deep blues roots guide the band’s primary sound, but with the hints of latin from Mike Zeoli’s percussion and Nick Doe’s rockin’ lead guitar riffs, Devil’s Hollow is far from a one trick pony.

Justin Murray started a blues trio in 2007 after several years of receiving positive feedback about his guitar playing. He had remained a strictly recreational musician to this point, having mostly only sat in with a few bands from time to time. He finally decided to take things to that next level by actually gigging with his own band. Keyboardist Matt Cain was the first of the current members to join Devil’s Hollow, he also played with a progressive rock band Spank along … Keep Reading

Ray’s of Hope Concert and Golf Tourney

Our good friend Wade Bowen and his Classic aren’t the only golf game in town, or the state, as it were. ¬†Some folks in Gatesville have rounded up quite the cool line-up for a golf tournament fundraiser in a couple weeks. April 11-12. ¬†A concert featuring some really cool acts such as full band performances from Adam Hood, Jason Eady and Thieving Birds will be alongside some acoustic performances from acts you don’t get to see very often anymore: Ryan Turner, Ryan James and Clayton Landua formerly of 6 Market Blvd. ¬†The opportunity to raise some money for a good cause AND see some guys jam some tunes that you don’t get to see much anymore is too cool to pass up. We hope to see you in Gatesville on April 11-12.

Lift Up Jayce Ward

Josh and Heather Ward are part of the Galleywinter family. ¬†They’re what we like to refer to as “old-skool”. ¬†Heather was a part of the original Tore Up From the Floor Up group that birthed this website/community. ¬†We’ve watched Josh grow from banging around on a couple chords to becoming one of the most successful independent artists in Texas at the moment. ¬†Recently, their young son Jayce has been beset by some medical issues. ¬†The family has circled the wagons around their little man and due to this Josh and Heather have missed a great deal of work. ¬†Postponed gigs equals postponed money that the family could use now. ¬†Due to this, a GoFundMe has been set up for the family where you can learn more about Jayce’s prognosis and the family’s story. ¬†The Texas Music Family at large, and the Galleywinter family more specifically, encourage you to consider donating to the Ward’s. ¬†They’re good people…and they’re family.
