River Jam Artist Preview: Haley Cole


Haley Cole has been stealing stages across the state and beyond for the past several years.  Buzz began heating up around Cole several years back and reached fever pitch including noise up in Nashville.  Haley has a voice that mixes power, range, sass and soul, all of which she completely owns.  Her studio output is diverse and transcendent. We’ve been lucky enough to have Haley play our event in both acoustic and full band settings.  You never know what gem she might pull out and the amount of soul she puts into each performance is truly a marvel.  Haley Cole is a powerhouse and we’re stoked she’ll be back with us again this year.

Performance date/time:  Sun July 14 at Lone Star Float House.  Approx 8PM.

Years at event:  Five

River Jam Artist Preview: Garrett Bryan

Fresh perspectives are hard to come by in this music scene.  Sometimes it feels like it’s all been said and done, then you hear a young songwriter like Garrett Bryan.  It sounds familiar, yet new all at once.  The type of songs anyone can dig into, but that those who appreciate deeper meaning in their songs can sink their teeth into.  His debut studio project was released last year, Break the Levee, and it is a statement making debut effort.  And like any debut, it’s rough around the edges yet full of enough promise to make you want to keep paying attention.  Come pay attention at River Jam Sunday this year.

Performance date/time:  Sunday July 14 at Lone Star Float House ; approx 6pm

Years at event:  Two

There are few artists I know as well as Josh Grider and Drew Kennedy. I’ve been lucky enough to have been a fan since their earliest moments as performers in our state. I’ve seen each of them play dozens of times in all manner of settings from backyards to listening rooms to living rooms to […]
