You may recall Andrew Combs playing for us before, when he supported Caitlin Rose in September last year. He is a songwriter, guitarist, and singer who lives in Nashville. Originally from Dallas, Combs is inspired by the great tradition of Texas songwriting exemplified by Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, and Mickey Newbury.

Following the success of the 2010 EP ‘Tennessee Time’, Coin Records released the 7-inch single “Big Bad Love” in May 2012 and Combs’ debut full-length album, ‘Worried Man’, in October 2012.This album capped off a busy year for Combs who signed as a staff writer with Razor & Tie Music Publishing in July 2012. Combs was also played at the 2012 Americana Music Association festival and has played and toured with Shovels & Rope, Jonny Corndawg, Caitlin Rose, Houndmouth, Robert Ellis, and Jason Isbell.

While ‘Tennessee Time’ displayed a decidedly Nashville sound, ‘Worried Man’ draws on a folk-rock sound galvanized by the reemergence of authentic American music coming from bands like L.A.’s Dawes. The album was co-produced by Mike Odmark and features guest appearances from Caitlin Rose and Nikki Lane, along with the core band of Jeremy Fetzer, Spencer Cullum, Jr., Michael Rinne, Micah Hulscher, and Jon Radford.

Combs is also part of a Nashville renaissance in country-folk music that stems from the slicked-up rural country gems of Justin Townes Earle and the close-knit indie folk-rock of Caitlin Rose. Searching through this puzzle you might also find an answer to why Jack White operates a ‘50s-inspired record shop and recording studio in Nashville and why the city has a buzzing punk scene.

Matt McCloskey was born in Bryan, TX in May of 1982, and has lived in Texas the majority of his life. Since his 2009 debut release, ‘These Times Won't Last’, Matt has fearfully explored themes of pain, hope, and freedom in his songs, and become known for his cutting lyrics, and truthful performances. His latest release, ‘The Hard Rains’, explores the more difficult sides of truth, and the struggle to find it.
