Charley Crockett

Growing up with a single mother in San Benito, Texas, the hometown of Tejano star Freddy Fender was not easy for blues singer Charley Crockett. Hitchhiking across the country exposed Crockett to the street life at a young age, following in the footsteps of his relative, American folk hero Davy Crockett, who also lived a wild life on the American frontier. After train hopping across the country, singing on the streets for change in New Orleans’ French Quarter, busking in New York City and performing across Texas and Northern California, Crockett set off to travel the world and lived on the streets of Paris for nearly a year before searching for home in Spain, Morocco, and Northern Africa. The blues artist returned home to Texas and released his debut solo album titled A Stolen Jewel in 2015, receiving critical acclaim in Dallas and ultimately landing him a Dallas Observer Music Award that year for “Best Blues Act”. A record “rich with Southern flavor, a musical gumbo of Delta blues, honky-tonk, gospel and Cajun jazz,” Jewel proved that Crockett, born into poverty in the Rio Grande, had come home to make his musical mark on the South. Crockett, who is self-described as elusive, rebellious and self-taught, has been compared to legends like Bill Withers, Merle Haggard, and Gary Clark Jr. He released his sophomore record In The Night, an admirable nod to his Texas country and Louisiana blues roots, on June 4 and ended 2016 having played over 125 shows. “In the Night” and Crockett’s song “I Am Not Afraid” received international recognition from top tastemakers after being picked by NPR Music as one of the "Top 10 Songs Public Radio Can't Stop Playing” and selected by David Dye to be featured on World Cafe in late July. The Fort Worth StarTelegram called it “an impressive calling card, full of Crockett's plaintive soulfulness and swinging tempos" and Central Track noted the artist as having "the well-rounded songwriting capabilities of Van Morrison and a vocal approach that finds common ground between Bill Withers and early Dr. John." Crockett graced the cover of Buddy Magazine in May 2016, who called him “the archetype of the new American vagabond.” He has shared the stage with artists like Justin Townes Earle, Citizen Cope, Alejandro Escovedo, Joe Ely, Sean Hayes, Tab Benoit, Ace Enders, and Leon Bridges.

Ryan Hahn & The Believers

Born and raised among the rolling hills of Kentucky, Ryan Hahn set out for the bright lights of Los Angeles to find his destiny. His journey has taken him far from home but never far from his roots. A look beyond his ink and piercings reveals a true southern gentleman, a seeker of truth and a storyteller.    His debut recording project "Farmers Son" is an insightfully honest look at the journey of the human spirit. Inspired by the twists and turns of life's winding road, these songs speak to the core of the human experience; Things like Love, Loss, and the power we have inside ourselves to overcome all the stuff that life throws at us. Whether it's a story of someone overcoming an impossible obstacle, the power of loving people, or just good ole rock n roll fun, These songs are intended to be an escape and potentially a ladder to help someone climb out of the hole they’ve found theirselves in.    One by one the songs have taken shape, and a band of Believers have formed around this old soul. Ryan Hahn and his Believers are coming to a stage near you!
