The Kid Icarus Project:
The Kid Icarus Project is a 4 pc acoustic Americana band from East Texas playing both originals and covers.
Born and raised in Dallas, TX. Surrounded by music from day one with two church musician parents and a drumming brother. Moved to St. Louis for college. Wrote, recorded, and toured several albums across the country with other bands. Currently tracking full length solo album number two. Stay tuned.
Texas Surf Rock from Dallas. Influences: The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Rolling Stones, Mac DeMarco, Real Estate, Dr. Dog, Elvis Presley, Portugal. The Man.
Saint Marie are singer-songwriters Aymi Cordero and Christopher Hughes that create haunting harmonies with reflective lyrics. The two friends, based in Dallas, TX, began writing together in early 2016 for their solo career and found out fast that their soulful songs are meant to be played as a duo. Blending a mix of Soul-pop mixed with a touch of folk is what SaintMarie is. Their debut single, “Close To You” was released everywhere in December 2016
Tom Devil and the Wizard:
There is no Tom Devil, there is no Wizard. The three-piece band was formed in 2014 by childhood friends Matt Nestor on guitar and vocals, Joe Pirro on bass, and Jake Malan on drums. They spent the last year gigging around DFW while self producing and recording their first full length album “Low Tide,” which is available now on iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, and Youtube.
The trio spent 2016 playing DFW clubs like the Curtain Club, City Tavern, The Underpass, Liquid Lounge, and headlining the House of Blues Local Grooves, Local Brews Festival’s Crossroads Stage and just finished up an east coast tour in April 2017.
The Wizard takes their inspiration where they can find it. From artists like Phish, Neil Young, Clutch, Kings X, Talking Heads, and The Beatles. They are even influenced by the likes Bruce Lee and his Jeet Kun Do: The philosophy of having no style. The Wizard does what works.

Cody Wayne Band:
“It’s about making a positive impact, and my music is my legacy. Stay humble”
A full-blown country-red dirt-high energy concert. These musicians raise the bar high and bring a party with every song. They’re wildly talented, energetic and thrive on entertaining crowds of all ages.
That’s how fans describe a night with Cody Wayne Band.
Band front man Cody Wayne satisfies both current and classic country music fans with his original music plus hits from Hank Williams Jr, Garth Brooks, Zac Brown Band, and more. Their repertoire of medleys and sing-a-longs shows the originality that separates this band from all the others. Every show includes rock ballads and country hits spanning from the 80’s to today.
With the release of their 2015 EP, “Makin’ Love In The Moonlight,” Cody Wayne’s original sound has been well-received, landing opening acts with some of the top names in country music. They are the proud winners of the “95 KNDE Candy, College Station” – Chilifest – Battle of the Bands 2015. This band takes pride in showcasing their own music, and is committed to continuously writing songs that captivate a crowd- ranging from heartfelt to honky tonk.
Mr. Carter Davis:
With a voice comparable to Hozier but influenced by the skies of Texas, Mr. Carter Davis is taking his home town of Dallas by storm. After years of writing and playing shows – his debut single “Hotels (TK)” will be released on May 19th. 2017 looks to be a big year for Mr. Davis as he is set to release multiple singles with a full length record set in 2018. You can find him touring regionally, writing, and recording in the meantime.
