We helped premiere Lew Card’s “Condo Town Rag” video off his fantastic album Follow Me Down nearly 12 months ago. It has been one of our favorite releases of the year.

The video, directed by Joey Kneiser from the band Glossary, for “Always Funny” is innovative as well. Watch this, share this and enjoy this!
K Phillips has been on an upward trajectory for several years now. He’s poised for a national release of his latest album Dirty Wonder and just got off a successful, widespread tour supporting Rob Thomas and Counting Crows. Phillips is one of our favorite songwriters and entertainers. An enigma wrapped up in bravado, artistry and wonderment, Phillips is poised to go next level with this record. Recently, K was a guest on Adam Durtitz’s “Outlaw Roadshow” a few weeks back in New York. A bevy of industry and media movers and shakers attended and have since been sharing with folks the master show K Phillips put on that night.

Thursday, November 10th in Houston at Warehouse Live
Friday, November 11th in Austin at the Cactus Cafe
Saturday, November 12th in Dallas at Poor David’s Pub
