Love And Theft
Love And Theft — Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson — launched with the No. 1 country smash “Angel Eyes” and top 10 hit “Runaway.” The longtime friends and bandmates have gone on to garner more than 3 billion radio impressions, over 300 million plays on Pandora, and are nearing 3 million music video streams for the critically acclaimed “Whiskey On My Breath,” an epic ballad that “returns Love And Theft to the harmony-rich sound that first turned heads when they started out,” (Rolling Stone). The ACM/CMA/CMT nominated duo has built a loyal fan base through their high-energy shows, infectious harmonies, and signature songwriting and is poised for the next chapter in their musical journey. The pair is currently putting the final touches on their fourth studio album, produced by legendary music icon Jim Ed Norman, and will release on Curb Records later this year.
Brandon Ray was born in the small West-Texas town of Big Spring. Raised on Rock n’ Roll, Country and Motown he picked up the guitar at the young age of 13. At 18 he was out on the road touring with his first band. They played 750 shows in 3 years including supporting the likes of Fall Out Boy, Switchfoot and grueling summers on Vans Warped Tour.
Brandon moved to Nashville in 2008 to pursue a career in songwriting. After arriving in Nashville, Brandon landed a publishing deal, played guitar for Brett Eldredge on tour (including Taylor Swift’s Red Tour) and lent his vocal to numerous demos for various publishers and songwriters in Nashville…. all while developing his own sound.
During the past year Ray has opened for artists such as Kip Moore, Jon Pardi, Martina McBride, Frankie Ballard, Craig Morgan, A Thousand Horses, Chase Rice, Craig Morgan, Bobby Bones & The Raging Idiots and David Nail.
Ray’s recent release “Ends of The Earth” (Produced by Ross Copperman and Keith Urban) is available now.
Based out of El Paso, TX, the Joe Barron Band bases its roots in Texas Country and Rock and Roll. Front man, Joe Barron, has had a passion for Texas Country that he blames on a road trip to Central Texas years back. “I had never really heard of Texas Country, but on this trip, that is the only type of music that was in my friend’s car… I was hooked”, says Barron. Since that day, Barron has had a driving passion for writing music and playing live gigs. In early 2011, Joe took the initiative to form a full band and start gigging. The musicians that make up the Joe Barron Band all come from different backgrounds musically. Blending Texas Country with these other genres is what gives the Joe Barron Band its unique style. The band has quickly made a name for themselves with their energetic live shows that captivate the audiences. They've shared the stage with such names as Brantley Gilbert, Josh Abbott Band, Kenny Rogers, Dwight Yoakam, Stoney LaRue, Josh Grider, Dirty River Boys, Bleu Edmonson, Eric Paslay, Matt Wayne, Curtis Grimes, Cory Morrow, John Anderson, Robert Earl Keen, Johnny Cooper
“The Joe Barron Band is for real. Been waiting a long time for a local country band to surface. Get used to seeing his name, he's gonna be around for a long time.” - Rick Dow (DJ of Whiskey Dick’s El Paso,TX)
