DAVID TOUCHTON

“The music performed by David Touchton is described as original, heartbroken, honky-tonkin’, and old-school country blues.”

David Touchton is an Austin,TX based musician with honky-tonk and blues in his blood. With influences ranging from Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard to Ray Wylie Hubbard and Son House, David is pushing the envelope of what defines country blues in Texas.

David  grew up with honky-tonk in his blood, as his grandfather, Peck Touchton was a player in the Houston honky-tonk scene in the 1950’s, rubbing shoulders with such icons as George Jones and Faron Young. Much of what Peck did rubbed off on David at an early age and as soon as he could, David found himself picking up a guitar and learning to moan the blues just as his heroes such as Hank Williams and George Jones did.

David moved to Austin, believing it to be the mecca of music in Texas, and after years of playing and honing his craft he has begun to make a name for himself in the Austin music scene, playing nearly 200 shows a year in venues such as The Broken Spoke Dancehall, Giddy Ups, Hill’s Cafe, Poodie’s Roadhouse, Riley’s Tavern, The White Horse, and many other venues in and around town.

Along with his Nowhere Band, David is constantly striving to leave his mark on what the music he loves.

SHAD BLAIR

Texas singer/songwriter Shad Blair was born and raised on a cattle ranch southeast of Post, Texas, learning to play guitar and sing from his dad and older brothers. He wore out his parents’ old country vinyl, spending the long Texas summers soaking up the music of Merle Haggard, Gene Watson, Johnny Cash, Bobby Helms, and Hank Williams. At age 14, Shad’s father taught him to play “Fraulein” and soon after he began playing gigs, later working in the oilfields to put himself through college. Over the years, Shad has created a sound hardened by life experience and steeped in his influences including Willie Nelson, Townes Van Zandt, and Steve Earle, to name a few.
