Tameca Jones
When Tameca Jones opens her mouth and sings, jaws hit the ground. Her honeyed and powerful vocals have been captivating her hometown Austin, TX for a little over ten years. Tameca spent years skillfully and tastefully breathing new life into the music of others but made a name for herself as the “Queen of Austin Soul,” blowing minds with her tasteful and vibrant interpretations of a diverse list of artists that include Tina Turner, Nirvana, Elton John, Jimi Hendrix, and more. The Austin Chronicle called her interpretations “sonic pretzels” that “juxtapose(s) crunchy jaggedness with her infectious, honeyed voice.” Her WTF ability to go from soulful wailing to silky coos has won her devoted fans, accolades, and some high profile situations opening for Austin super stars Gary Clark Jr., Max Frost, Bob Schneider and other big touring acts. She's received major love from Billboard Magazine for her white hot performance at the 2015 Austin Music Awards, where she paid tribute to late beloved musician Ian McLagan alongside legends like Steven Van Zandt, Charlie Sexton, Alejandro Escovedo, and Patty Griffin. Billboard said she “raised the roof,” while The Austin Chronicle called her performance “showstopping.” Guitar deity and fellow Austinite Gary Clark Jr., who faithfully attended Tameca’s shows whenever he was in town, asked her to sing on the song “Wings” for his latest album, The Story of Sonny Boy Slim… dubbed a “slinky duet,” by Rolling Stone. Tameca Jones made her festival debut at the 2015 Austin City Limits Festival and stunned a crowd that grew bigger and bigger as her set went on. She ended that performance with her debut single, “Hot and Bothered,” a sexy Motown inspired cut now on heavy rotation on regional radio stations. Tameca Jones is set to release her highly anticipated debut EP in March and there is little doubt that she will soon be the next big name to break out of Austin.
Aaron Stephens
Aaron Stephens
Born in Illinois and raised in South Texas. 25-year old Aaron Stephens' debut album Hard Times, Straight Lines garnered interest immediately, landing at #9 on Lone Star Music Magazine's Top 10 Americana Albums of 2014 amongst names such as Sturgill Simpson and Jason Isbell. While certainly comfortable performing blues and funk, Stephens' real strength is soul-laden rootsy pop, a crowd-pleasing, genre-bending sound filtered from his many influences, from Stevie Wonder to John Mayer, and Otis Redding to Derek Trucks. Aaron has multiple formats in which he can perform - acoustic solo, duo, or band, and full band trio up to a 6-piece with horns and keys.
