GABE WOOTTON

 

From the piney woods of East Texas to the flat lands outside Lubbock, from the rolling prairies of Central Texas to the sandy shores of the Virgin Islands, Gabe Wootton has covered more than a few miles. With an eye on the horizon and an ear in the wind, he has found melody in the mundane and rhyme in the hum of life. A sketch of scenes in passing, character studies of the broken and the jubilant, triumphant tales of ruin to joyful lamentations of woe, Gabe’s songs run the gamut incorporating elements of all the music he has stumbled upon throughout his life.

 

SHANE WALKER

Based out of New Braunfels, TX, Shane Walker is a songwriter, a beekeeper and a middle school Spanish teacher.

“You’d be surprised how similar they are,” he laughs. “Bees are not the only creatures in nature that sting when they are unhappy.You kind of have to go into it knowing that it’s gonna hurt a little bit every now and then. But that really only adds to the experience.”Long before working with bees or teenagers, Walker began his music career in 2002 by winning the University Songwriter Competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival – the same year he founded the Austin-based alt-country band The Gougers. In seven years touring the United States (and opening for country greats like Willie Nelson, Roseanne Cash, Marty Stuart and Ricky Skaggs), Walker and the Gougers (also featuring Jamie Wilson of The Trishas) put out three records, culminating in A Long Day for the Weathervane, which spent six weeks in the AMA Radio Chart’s top-10 with over 10,000 spins nationwide
