A Texas hill country reared, now Nashville based independent singer-songwriter Ryan Scott Travis wields a brand of Alt-Country Americana he refers to as Texacana. Reverently tying in the melancholic golden sounds of David Gates of Bread with the earthy reflections of Guy Clark, Travis creates a contemporary “comic cowboy” atmosphere.
Thomas Csorba put his nose to the grindstone as a songwriter and performer at a young age, but these releases don't show his youth. In the same tradition as Townes Van Zandt, Woodie Guthrie, and other lyrical greats, Csorba's songs were written for old souls. His work is mournful, sweet, and beautifully honest. He's a link in a chain of a long tradition of powerful writers, and he's proud to bear that responsibility.
