Doug Burr

Doug Burr’s flavor of backwoods roots and smart pop hooks has been described as conjuring Lucinda Williams on a revival high. After years of wood-shedding his songwriting in Denton, Texas, Burr emerged from a local favorite to quietly winning people over receiving international press. He gets the Daniel Lanois meets Johnny Cash, Bazan/Bon Iver, Costello with Waits/Kozelek thing sometimes, but it’s obvious Burr clearly has his own unique sound. One blogger put it best, “If Doug Burr is not your favorite singer-songwriter, it’s because you have not heard of him yet.”

Tyler Rougeux of Whiskey Folk

Whiskey Folk’s “founding member and lead singer Tyler Rougeux, possessed of exactly the same voice in person you’ll hear on record – a smooth, rich, specifically Texan drawl of the kind made to hold together a rambunctious country-folk-rock band (-Gavin Cleaver, Dallas Observer)” ….with “heavenly, ascending group-sung harmonies, romantic escapism, and working-class ballads sung with a poet’s grace — groups like Whiskey Folk reminds us that some things never go out of style…Songs this homespun and charming are rare antiques.”
