JAMES STEINLE

James’ music is often filled with characters who live near borders and on open plains, who work cattle on hot days and visit honky tonks at night, who experience hardships and cause of a bit of a raucous from time to time. His songs are filled with perspective — sometimes his own, sometimes that of others — but together, shine a light on a larger picture of what life looks like for people in a place that’s often forgotten.

HIS upbringing is part of the reason he can see things from so many different angles. Born in South Texas, he spent his childhood in Saudi Arabia and Germany and had the privilege of traveling all over the world at a young age. He’s now based in Austin, where his unique worldview, the people he’s met and the places he’s seen inform the songs he writes.

James was one of the winners of the 2017 Kerrville Folk Festival’s University Singer/Songwriter Contest. Following the release of his debut studio LP, “South Texas Homecoming”, in August of 2018 he garnered high praise and the record itself found its way onto numerous “Best Album’s of the Year” lists (see ‘PRESS’ tab above). Since then he has released a live record, “Live at hole In the Wall”, and is currently in the process of releasing his sophomore studio effort, “what I came Here For”, produced by the great Texas singer/songwriter Bruce Robison. The record will be available February 7th, 2020 on Shotgun House Records.

He has shared the bill and opened for fellow Americana acts such as Joe Ely, Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis, Charley Crockett, Jim Lauderdale, Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives, Jamie Lin Wilson, Robert Ellis, Jonny Burke, Michael Martin Murphey, Mike & The Moonpies, And Many More.

DALE & WAYLON

Dale & Waylon are the combination of Jake Waylon Lehman and Ryan Dale Davenport.  Lifelong friends, at times  roommates, extended family, and co-writers.  Music was introduced to them at an early age from their fathers.  Steve & Mike played many living room shows to the young ears of their sons.  A few church group shows later,  a garage band or two, and Dale & Waylon were hooked.  Always focused on dynamics and harmony, Dale & Waylon provide an intimate show with songs that were “lived in” and “lived through”.  Two guitars, a mandolin, and a harmonica, provide the soundtrack to a Dale & Waylon duo show.  The addition of Dave Gould on stand-up bass, Rob Clift on keys, accordion, and steel drum, and Mike Winters on drums rounds out the Dale & Waylon full band experience.  These days you’ll find the guys in venues all across Texas and abroad.  Plans are also in the works for a new album.  It will be self-produced, recorded, and mixed in Thorndale, TX, where it all started.  The album should be available in early 2020.
