Better than Ezra
To say the past 20 years have been "good" for New Orleans-based rock band Better Than Ezra would be an understatement.
The band had been selling out venues across the country since forming at Louisiana State University in 1988 where the band started touring on the Southern college circuit. After self-releasing their first album Deluxe in 1993, major record labels expressed an interest in the band.
But it wasn't until after two years of touring and creating an intense loyal fan base that dubbed themselves the "Ezralites," that Better Than Ezra signed with Elektra Records. Elektra re-released Deluxe and its single ‘Good' which reached the #1 position on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart driving the album sales to platinum status.
When discussing the overnight success of Deluxe, lead singer/songwriter and founding member Kevin Griffin said, "The timing of things is always so interesting because it took us seven years to get signed and then seven weeks to get to No. 1 on the charts."
"hONEyhoUSe" is a unique acoustic trio combining the talents of three very diverse and seasoned artists into one unexpected powerhouse force.
Consisting of award winning R&B/Gospel soulstress Hillary Smith, earthy Blues/Folk singer-songwriter Yvonne Perea, and sweet voiced Mandy Buchanan, "hONEyhoUSe" seamlessly melds the lines of musical genres with their original creations embracing blues, soul, folk and Americana into one sweet Honeyhouse of music.
The Bus Tapes
Two-time New Mexico Music Award winners, husband and wife duo Case and Heather Tanner bring together a range of talented musicians for fun and interactive shows, taking audiences by the hand and leading them through a "what's-cool" tour of music.
Their eclectic mix of originals and covers, everything from blues and folk to R&B ballads, has been rocking crowds since 2008.
Revíva has made a name for themselves in the Albuquerque music scene through their inspiring lyrics, unique sound, and positive vibes. Forming in the fall of 2009, they have turned ears with their original Burqueño/Reggae/Rock rhythm and lyrics, both in English and Spanish that touch the soul
