Somebodys Darling (Dallas, TX)
If you haven't yet heard about Somebody's Darling, an inventive rock band from Dallas, Texas, chances are you will soon. The group has played relentlessly over the last five years, clocking in over 500 shows through multiple headlining tours, numerous festival stops and supporting great artists like Shovels & Rope, Lucero and Divine Fits. SD is spearheaded by lead singer Amber Farris, whose unrefined yet tender vocals belt out blistering songs that command the attention of anyone in earshot. She's oft-likened to great singers such as Bonnie Raitt, Susan Tedeschi and Erika Wennerstrom (Heartless Bastards), but there’s no borrowing, and you can’t really make comparisons. One thing that’s clear is that Somebody's Darling loves to play live – the band has gained a reputation for their frenetic performances. Their sound has its roots in live expression rather than that studio-perfected sort of vibe, drawing on a range of vintage influences. But just as their contemporary heroes, bands like My Morning Jacket, Wilco, Dawes, and the Black Keys, these five friends strive to create and perform exceptional songs that are at the spearhead of modern rock 'n' roll.
Nearly two years after the release of the band's last album, Somebody's Darling is set to release their third LP in September, titled "ADULT ROOMMATES." The new album was recorded earlier this year at the Echo Lab in Denton, TX, all on 2" analog tape, with producer Beau Bedford and producer/sound engineer Matt Pence (Midlake, Jason Isbell, Glossary, Jay Farrar, Will Johnson).

Cavern Hymnal (Houston, TX)
Cavern Hymnal is a folk-rock band from Houston. Led by Mary Kate Spawn, the group writes great songs and delivers engaging live shows. The band is currently working on an EP to be released this summer.
"Their music was an amalgam of indie rock and folk. The strumming vibrated off the walls and floor, up your legs, and into your skull. Cavern Hymnal played a trick however. Indie Folk music carries a certain vibe of relaxation and calm. Sharespace was well into its beer when the last song played, slow and melodic, relaxing almost, but then came a crescendo of drums and guitar like a splash of water. End on a high note? Sure, why not." - Free Press Houston
