BEN BALMER

Influenced by Paul Butterfield, Fiona Apple, Elliot Smith, Aretha Franklin, and Tom Waits, Ben Balmer’s songs seamlessly cover a mix of genres, from singer/songwriter to soul to indie rock. His blues harmonica and rootsy fingerpicking showcase songs of the most innate human emotions: the innocence of young love, the loneliness of travel and the dark sides of faith and addiction. According to Verde News, Ben’s lyrics “speak of the road, love, little joys and what seem almost like reworked parables of the way the world works.”Houseofgigs.com calls his vocal work “charismatic,” describing how Ben adjusts to the feel of each song, “and as such, becomes not the feature of the song, but a true part of the music.”

CHARLES BRYANT

In an article published by Texas Music Magazine last year, music journalist Trey Gutierrez wrote: Charles Bryant may the most prolific Texas songwriter you’ve never heard of. His 3rd, and latest CD, titled ‘Kiss The Sun’ was named one it’s best Texas album releases of 2017. In his review of the album, music journalist William Michael Smith concluded: “A vast, sweeping work of beauty, grace, compassion and heart, ‘Kiss The Sun’ gives hope to those who miss the bruising word constructions of Townes Van Zandt and other Houston singer-songwriters who set the bar so high to begin with. ‘Kiss The Sun’ is no less than a minor masterpiece from a true underdog an native son”. From Houston to Austin, look under ‘Shows’ to see where you can see Charles live.
