Jessica McVey

Jessica McVey is a rising country artist out of the DFW area. She grew up in a small town in Illinois called Atlanta. She was born into a family of musicians and singers. Her parents toured the country in a christian 80's rock band when she was 3. Jessica discovered her love for music at a very early age using it as a pathway for expression. However, she didn't begin a career in music until much later in her life.  "Music was always there for me. It gave me a way to express myself without judgement. I could sing a song and connect with it. At the same time, I watch people in the crowd connect with it for different reasons. That is the beauty of music, it connects us all in so many ways."  Her debut single John Deere In The Headlights can be found on iTunes and Spotify and she is releasing her latest single Haunting Melody in the upcoming months.

Ray Johnston Band

The Ray Johnston Band has built a solid foundation over the years based on melodies and lyrics that always seem to lean on the positive side of life. This frame of mind is Ray’s best feature, and everyone who knows him will admit that his “glass is half full” attitude has a sobering effect on lives that are often overburdened, overtired and just plain “over it.” Having 5 1⁄2 years in remission from Leukemia will definitely put things into perspective for pretty much anyone, and the new lease on life has never been lost on Ray who utilizes both his charity work and his music to spread the love and shed light in the darkness wherever he finds it. His previous album “No Bad Days” not only put Ray on a much larger map as a genuine songwriter and artist, but also stands as a shining example of how much music fans gravitate to his special brand of “happy.”

He has since etched out a strong following across the Texas the music scene and beyond, with his work appearing in Nationally Syndicated and Regional Radio, and Local and Prime-Time Network TV.

The musical voice that has evolved since is a fresh take on Rock, Soul, Country and Americana evoking Aretha Franklin, Bill Withers, Bonnie Raitt, and Levon Helm.

Frenchie's Blues Destroyers is a gritty Rock 'n' Roll band steeped in the tradition of old American Blues as well as all the greats that sprung out of the genre in the sixties (i.e. British Blues Boom and it's American counterparts of the era). Several years ago Frenchie and Brother Pete, crossed paths in Texas while playing in different bands. Frenchie & Brother Pete joined forces to develop a unique musical and personal bond (a Richards/Watts - like chemistry) while touring extensively. Frenchie's writing draws heavily from the influences of the Rock 'n' Roll and Blues music on which his father had raised him. Frenchie's Blues Destroyers was born out of desire and passion, and a true DIY attitude. It is a no nonsense, no-frills band that bears its teeth with more of a sly grin than a grimace.

Gary Kyle

Born into to a big family headed by musical parents, a very young Gary was scratching out lyrics from the time he could put pen to paper. His urgency to write was a constant companion captaining him through a life infused with rich homemade love, personal family tragedy and a deep respect for the time allotted us in this life. Growing up just outside of Houston, Texas, he did his best to meet all the requirements that would make him a strong, well-rounded young man; did well in school, went to college where he got some of his best songwriting done while sitting in class, even got a sales job accompanied by a big devoted paycheck. Yet nothing gave him the peace he found in creating music, a beckoning that rose above the cacophony of a “responsible life.” The stage had been calling for years, and he finally answered. Gary and his guitar played over 250 shows that first year and had his first full length album “Livin’” to show for it. The following year, he phased in a fiercely skilled backing band, and within six months went from a brand new act to headliner around his neck of the woods. The course had been set, and Gary was headed towards his true north. 

Over the next few years, Gary Kyle released two more studio projects, the full length album “Turn This Life Around” in 2011 and his latest EP “Texas Strong” in 2014. Combined all three released brought in four Top 30 singles on the Texas music charts including “Texas Strong,” the theme song for the nationally syndicated TV show “Lone Star Roads” with host and revered radio programmer, Justin Frazell. A growing demand for his live show kept him on the road for the most part of each month and he was honored to have the opportunity to share stages with alumni artists including John Michael Montgomery and Tanya Tucker. While Gary’s live show echoes his deep roots in Texas and the storied music scene that thrives there, his writing style is the seasoned recipe found largely in the music city of Nashville. It’s this kind of 50/50 concoction that removes all regional borders leaving Gary free to move about the “country.” It’s also the basis for his decision to release in his brand new album in halves.

Mason Lively

Twenty-One year old Texas singer/songwriter Mason Lively delivers his compelling debut album, “Stronger Ties” on April 6th, 2018. Blending a modern Red Dirt Country sound with traces of Americana and Roots Rock, the record is a well founded collection of songs that will resonate and grow with listeners, due to its diverse individuality as a record. With a sound that’s simple yet complex, easy-feeling but gritty and weathered, inspiring yet heartbreaking. It’s no stretch to say that there’s a song for every emotion on Lively’s “Stronger Ties”.

Born in Victoria, Texas, but raised just outside of town in the rural community of Inez, Mason Lively grew up in a country music atmosphere. His appreciation for the genre can be traced back to his childhood. Though he enjoyed and was exposed to many types of music, he would listen to artists like Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and Ray Price to name a few. Eventually he started to take interest and study songwriting from artists in the Texas scene like Robert Earl Keen, Pat Green, Evan Felker, and many more. Mason started playing guitar at age 14, and claims that song-writing "sort of snuck up on him" not long after that. 

Judging by the stunning debut record... It's safe to say that Mason Lively is going places in Texas Music, and beyond.

Kaleb McIntire

Landing hard after the success of his 2012 album SCARS, Kaleb fielded offers from several major labels. Unwilling to give up his vision for what his next record should be, he turned down offers and set out to blaze his own path in the country music business. To do so he had to step back, take time to develop his sound, and find the perfect team to bring his vision to reality. It wouldn’t be a quick process. It would take two years.  Teaming up with Texas guitarist Bryant Hunter the two started writing new music and developing a sound that was brand new and hauntingly familiar at the same time.  During this time Kaleb’s first top 30 single, “Redneck In All of Us” had become so popular in Europe that the band decided a European tour was in order. So they packed up their axes and headed to Western Europe playing sold out venues like Billy Bob’s Country Western Saloon in Marne­la­Vallee France.  Fresh off the European tour and with a newfound appreciation for where his music could go, Kaleb enlisted the help of Nashville producer Heath Owen, son of legendary ALABAMA front man Randy Owen. They went to work refining the sound Kaleb and Bryant had forged and injecting influences from the likes of Elvis Presley and George Strait.
