William Clark Green
With two critically esteemed album releases already under his belt, William Clark Green is back and this time it is getting personal. Give Green a pen and paper and he is a lyrical force to be reckoned with. On his critically acclaimed third release, Rose Queen, he puts it all on the line and makes absolutely no apologies.
"Songwriting is reality. People are scared to put reality on paper, but this is 10
times more reality than my past work," he explains bluntly. The past few years
have been consumed with Green touring heavily in the booming Texas scene and persistently writing a plethora of songs that are pulled from true to life
experiences. Green has adamantly pushed his boundaries as a writer revealing,
"Songwriting is exactly what is in your heart, in my opinion, it is not about
writing a hit. It is about revealing your heart and your feelings on the paper."
The music on Rose Queen ranges from the familiar Cajun flare he is known for on "Let's Go" to the highly reflective and introspective "Welcome to the Family."
In the candidly honest lead single, "It's About Time," Will tackles the harsh reality that a significant relationship must end. He explains, "I think the new record will connect with a certain demographic of people who have been effected by something in their lives and therefore can identify with my stories."
Not only has Green raised the bar with his seasoned writing and musicianship, he also enlisted a team of powerhouses to mold his full package of artistry. Music industry veteran Rachel Loy was recruited to undertake producing the new record. Green declares, "I was sold on her in just 30 minutes. She installs confidence and challenges me to be better." Also, in the last year he signed with new management, 415 Entertainment, as well as landed a booking deal with Nashville's Paradigm Agency. For the first time, Green embraced the nature of co-writing and included 4 tracks of co-writes on the new album.
William Clark Green is definitely no stranger to the music scene; he knew at the ripe age of 13 that he would embrace his passion and work vigorously in order to make a name for himself. As a 7th grader with substantial ambition, he began receiving guitar lessons and spending free time with his cousin writing music and bouncing ideas off of one another. Green draws inspiration from his personal musical hero Willis Allan Ramsey, as well as his father who Green has fond memories of with a guitar in hand.
While attending college at Texas Tech University, Green played for a live
audience whenever he could and steadily gained notoriety on the Texas music scene. He credits the Blue Light in Lubbock as his unofficial home, where he spent many nights honing on his craft and gaining a loyal army of followers.
Rose Queen has already marked a number of milestones for the young storyteller. The debut single, "It's About Time", was welcomed at radio with open arms and earned William's first Top Ten song on Texas Radio. The momentum did not stop there as his follow up single, "She Likes The Beatles," recently scored the #1 position on both the Texas Music Chart (TMC) and the Texas Regional Radio Report (TRRR) in seemingly the blink of an eye. At this rate, the sky is the limit as everyone waits to see what William Clark Green has up his sleeve next. The full album released on April 30, 2013.

Flatland Cavalry is an energetic blend of Country-Folk-Americana whose sound and influence can be traced to the vivacity and showmanship of the Turnpike Troubadours, melodic stylings of John Mayer, and songwriting ability of renowned Texas artists such as Randy Rogers and Wade Bowen. Thomas Mooney, Editor-in-chief of New Slang Lbk, a music blog focused on the thriving Lubbock music scene, states," It's the closest thing to Turnpike Troubadours in some time. Close your eyes and maybe, you can hear the same wiry twang in Cordero that you heard in Evan Felker years ago. The comparisons don't end there. There's the piercing interplay between guitar and fiddle. The honest longing for intimacy, inevitable heartbreak, and the occasional summertime fling that sprinkle their way through songs." Founded in 2012 by childhood friends and college roommates, Cleto Cordero and Jason Albers, Flatland Cavalry is determined to take the Lubbock music scene (and the state of Texas) by storm with their refreshing original sound.
Within two weeks of releasing their debut EP, Come May (May 2015), the ambitious young band received an offer and signed with the Oak Park, California based booking agency, Atomic Music Group, and joined the roster amongst other great Texas-based musical acts including Ray Wylie Hubbard, Brandon Rhyder, Folk Family Revival, and The Statesboro Revue. It seems the future is bright for the humble five-piece from Lubbock, TX; whose sole mission is to write and play music that's, "Easy on the ears, Heavy on the heart."
We make roots rock'n'roll country soul music.
Based out of South Austin, Texas.
Ross Cooper is the rare country musician who has actually lived the life of a cowboy. The former professional bareback rider was still bustin' broncs when his music career began. Though a knee injury sidelined his rodeo career, Cooper drives a band like he's still wearing spurs and holding on for eight. His new album, I Rode The Wild Horses, pushes country music way past traditional territory just for the rush. It's the new Nashville sound: glimmering pedal steel, rollicking & rocking telecaster riffs, soulful keys, and gorgeous harmonies.
$25.00 - $75.00
