Landon McGee & Friends

Bryan
Landon McGee is a singer-songwriter who hails from Central Texas. His first album, “Kite”, is inspired by birds as a metaphor for human life, namely, the life of the soul. While it’s true that much of our time is spent eating and sleeping and trudging, our deepest life, the life of the soul, happens in narrative arcs that are not unlike the flight patterns of birds. Landon creates much of his music in the confine of a dorm room, after numerous quiet hours spent alone. Landon’s shared musical journey has just begun to take flight- don’t miss it.

Erik Willis: In a time when many artists are striving to find their identity, Erick Willis is slowly leaving his mark on the scene, with a personality that is true and not just a stage persona. Taking cues from the music he was raised on Erick is blending soulful melodic lyrics, with the deep groove of roots-rock and as his lyric says, “with some of the harder stuff.” Showcasing a smooth voice with an excellent upper register, uniquely gravely at times, and always pleasant to the ear, Erick is bringing lots of soul to the mix, along with undeniably Texas inspired lyrics.

Christopher Crow: Talented local musician Christopher Crow shows his southern roots playing Alternative Blues with a flare that is sure to please the crowd every time.
