We have 5 fantastic singles in this week’s Texas Music Breakthrough from Aaron Woods, Parker McCollum, Jerrett Zoch and the OSR Band, RJV and Hell County Revival, and Dusty Smirl! LISTEN, SHARE, AND REQUEST!!! Let’s help these singles breakthrough on to the Texas music charts!
The Aaron Woods Band consists of five guys that came together all for the love of music. Aaron Woods-Lead Vocals/Rhythm Guitar; Tylar Callaham-Lead Guitar/3rd Vocals; Brodee Nucci-Bass Guitar; Chris Gibby-Keys/2nd Vocals; & Tyler Jimenez-Drums. Together they bring together one of the most musically diverse groups in the Texas/Oklahoma Red-Dirt scene. The band is currently writing for their follow up album to be titled “Amber Fields & Lucid Dreams” due out in late 2015.
It doesn’t take Texans long to catch on to an artist who expresses authenticity through engaging melodies and compelling lyrics. That would explain why Austin singer-songwriter Parker McCollum found his name at the top of Spotify airplay lists in two major Texas markets, and at No. 3 in a third, with “Meet You in the Middle,” the first single from his debut album, The Limestone Kid. His just-released follow-up, “High Above the Water,” is already gaining airplay on stations throughout the state.
Jerrett Zoch and the OSR Band is a Texas Country band based around Huntsville, Texas. OSR’s style of music is greatly influenced from a variety of music genres including Texas Country, Red Dirt Country, Nashville Country, Blues, and Rock. OSR (formerly known as East Texas Sky) was formed by Jerrett Zoch of Centerville, Tx, Daniel Huggins of Centerville, Tx, and Berny Herrera of Jewett, Tx, in May 2010 “Whiskey Brown” is the second radio single from Jerrett Zoch and The OSR Band and describes life on the road as a Texas Country music band.
RJV & Hell County Revival is a Texas Country / Americana outfit that pulls influence from traditional country, Texas swing, soul and rock and roll. Formed in the summer of 2012, the band is fronted by Robert Jason Vandygriff who gained a name for himself as the singer and guitarist for the legendary cow punk band the Von Ehrics. RJV teamed up with Hell County Revival, a hot little band dripping with talent and experience, to make a long-expected and natural move to a more traditional country setting.
Heart, Soul, Honesty, and Values. Just a few of the things you will hear in each one of Dusty Smirl’s songs. A lyrically based singer/songwriter from Denton, Texas, Dusty pours every ounce of himself, his life, and the world around him into each and every word of his songs. He has a way of tying thoughts and feelings together in a melody that will reach inside of you, hold your heart, and shake your soul.
