Paul Cauthen (Formerly Of Sons Of Fathers) w/ Danny Malone

Austin, TX 78702
Indie folk singer/songwriter, Danny Malone, was born in Dallas, where his parents raised him on a steady diet of classic country singers. That early influence, coupled with his teenage love of rock and roll and alternative country, forms the base of Malone's music. Sometimes stripped bare to just an acoustic guitar and the earnest twang of his voice, while other times performing more raucous renditions with his live band, the Collar Bones, his lyrics are full of heart-on-your-sleeve tales of relationships and the hardships of growing up. Malone released his debut album, While We're Still Here, in 2006.

Mother Falcon Presents The Galactic Premiere Of “the Starnation Suite,” (A New Piece Inspired By Competitive Star Craft Gaming)

Mother Falcon is an indie pop-minded classical music collective based out of Austin, Texas. Using multiple cellos and violins, acoustic bass, mandolin, horns, guitar and percussion, the group creates pop song-structured compositions that really utilize the space and characteristics of every instrument being played. This isn't a half-baked band looking to gain credibility by using a classical instrument now and then. Rather, Mother Falcon is made-up entirely of well-trained musicians capable of tastefully adding to the band's songs with a sense of professional grace and restraint. Modern indie music is also a heavy influence on Mother Falcon, well evidenced in the group's use of vocals and grandiose arrangements. Fans of like-minded contemporaries such as Owen Pallet and Beirut will appreciate the band's modern twist on classical music.
As a member of the blues-rock band, Breedlove, singer/songwriter, Dan Dyer, familiarized himself with the rich and varied music scene in Austin, Texas throughout the 90s before eventually beginning a solo career. His songs caught the ear of Lenny Kravitz, who helped Dyer record, produce and release his debut album, ...Of What Lies Beneath, in 2004. Dyer evokes the spirit of classic rock crooners and guitarists who have come before him, while not completely abandoning the modern touches that have been lent to blues-based rock music via revivalists such as the White Stripes and the Black Keys.
