About The White Buffalo

“I’ve always taken great pleasure in being difficult to categorize,” says the White Buffalo’s big-voiced frontman, Jake Smith. Since releasing his first album in 2002, Smith has explored the grey area between genres, carving out a sound rooted in dark folk, countrified soul, cinematic storytelling and roadhouse-worthy rock. He keeps things unclassifiable on the White Buffalo’s sixth album, Darkest Darks, Lightest Lights, the most hard-hitting, electrified album of his career. “My hope is that this album will touch people,” he says. “Make people feel. The good, the bad, and the ugly. The darkest darks, and the lightest lights.”

About Hop Along

Let’s talk about Frances Quinlan’s voice for a moment. In “Horseshoe Crab,” she whispers with a rasp that feels small, yet embodies the fears we try not to name; then, she throws her head back to ask, “Who is gonna talk trash long after I’m gone?” That gut-punching howl shatters like a plate on a concrete floor.

Quinlan’s singular voice is the focus, but not what ultimately completes Hop Along, a guitar-based rock band that messes with the soft-loud dynamic in busy and urgent arrangements that cull from their experiences in punk, hard rock and Americana groups…

About Amanda Shires

Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter/violinist Amanda Shires will release her highly anticipated fifth album To The Sunset on August 3rd via Silver Knife/Thirty Tigers. To The Sunset is Shires’ second album with Grammy award-winning producer Dave Cobb and represents an adventurous move with an edgier sound and attitude. Shires continues to push herself artistically and sonically, but the spotlight always shines brightly on her unmistakable songwriting style and emotive and distinctive vocals.

To The Sunset is the follow up to Shires’ critically acclaimed My Piece Of Land, which was released in 2016. My Piece Of Land became her most acclaimed album to date garnering high praise that included NPR, Associated Press, Rolling Stone Country, Entertainment Weekly, Garden & Gun, Texas Monthly and the cover of the Nashville Scene. Capping off a banner year in 2016, Shires was also the recipient of the Americana Music Association’s Emerging Artist Of The Year Award and made her solo national TV debut on Austin City Limits.

To The Sunset represents an extension of artistic growth for Amanda Shires who continues to grow and challenge herself as an artist and songwriter.

We’re very excited to bring this national tour to the Big Room!
