If you were to think of the most glorious sound that could ever be produced…As if Heaven itself were to part the clouds for the briefest of moments and all the Angels gathered to sing their most Angelic song, and it was so beautiful that it could only be heard for a single whisper of a moment or the gloriousness of the sound would overwhelm everyone on Earth….yep, that’s the Brandon McDermott Band.

BEN BALMER

Ben Balmer’s business cards read Ben Balmer. Musician. Performer. All-around nice guy. There are few better words to describe someone who lives to jam while brightening people’s days with honest and compassionate music.

Born in the Detroit area of Michigan, Ben Balmer grew up singing along to his Dad’s old Motown and Chicago blues records as early as age 4. He started playing harmonica by 13, and was performing on guitar by 17. During high school, Ben became the lead singer and harmonica player in Ann Arbor indie-rock band Comatose Collin. Despite being the band’s youngest member, Ben’s “soulfully sweet” voice (as described by Detroit Metro Times) touched audiences with his surprisingly reflective and exposing lyrics.

CHARLES BRYANT

In an article published by Texas Music Magazine last year, music journalist Trey Gutierrez wrote: Charles Bryant may the most prolific Texas songwriter you’ve never heard of. His 3rd, and latest CD, titled ‘Kiss The Sun’ was named one it’s best Texas album releases of 2017. In his review of the album, music journalist William Michael Smith concluded: “A vast, sweeping work of beauty, grace, compassion and heart, ‘Kiss The Sun’ gives hope to those who miss the bruising word constructions of Townes Van Zandt and other Houston singer-songwriters who set the bar so high to begin with. ‘Kiss The Sun’ is no less than a minor masterpiece from a true underdog an native son”. From Houston to Austin, look under ‘Shows’ to see where you can see Charles live.
