Adam Bricks (Houston, TX)

Houston Songwriter by way of New York has been writing songs about city love and lust since his first release, "City Songs" in 2013. Since he has opened for the likes of Justin Townes Earle, David Dondero and Houston Local favorites Buxton. He is currently working on his new record with members of local indie rockers The Caldwell, set to be released in early 2016 entitled "Relations"

“Adam Bricks looks like another heir to Houston’s tradition of talented storytellers packing acoustic guitars. City Songs, the Bellaire High School grad’s brand-new full-length album, is a ramshackle yet tuneful suite of songs dedicated to Houston itself, and flashes bits of rootsy charm and pop smarts.” – Chris Gray (Houston Press)

Adam Bricks has a fascinating voice. Not a “pretty” voice, mind you. It’s casual and conversational but not lacking color. He sometimes sings a bit behind the beat, which gives his songs a sauntering feeling that is warm and inviting. He has a brilliant collection of new tunes called “City Songs” that puts that voice and his lyrics in a roomy setting that never once leans toward excess, even when he dials in the brass. He’s bright with a lyric, too, and more than occasionally funny as well as poignant as he is in one of my favorite lines: “I’ve been as lonely as a fish in a tank.” – Andrew Dansby (Houston Chronicle)

Ryan Sambol Band (San Francisco, CA)

Ryan Sambol began his career in Texas at an early age with a group called The Strange Boys, who, over three albums in five years, enjoyed moderate success and cut their teeth over two continents. With a chance to take a break, Ryan recorded his first solo album, Now Ritual, while living in San Francisco.

Two years later, Ryan reemerged with the group Living Grateful, only to take a break upon the completion of the album Peace Mob and, predictably to those close to him, has now returned to embark on a solo career a long time in the making. He is currently working on his second solo album, so far entitled Rail Sing.
