Jimmy Pizzitola – a Houston based singer/songwriter, night-time landscaper, and lover of all things jellicle (except Cats). His early musical influences, driven into his three year old skull while being held captive in the back of a 1968 blue Malibu by his carpool-driving mother, were the singer-songwriters of the 1970’s. Between dropping off and picking up siblings and assorted neighborhood ruffians, Jimmy was force-fed Jim Croce, Neil Young, James Taylor, Gerry Rafferty, and of course, Der Weinershnitzel corn dogs. Come weekend, he would often head out to South Texas with his father and grandfather to shoot at things. Sitting on the console of a Ford Bronco, squeezed in between stacks of 8-tracks and bottles of V.O., he would sing along with Waylon, Willie, Hank Williams (Jr. and Sr.) Don Williams, and other country-fried offerings of the time.

Tex Smith – Multi-time Independent Radio charting, Tex Smith is a singer songwriter who from his eponymously titled first album in 2009, has continued to write and perform songs that will become central to the modern day Folk & Americana catalog. In a genre that is alive and growing he continues to accrue a devoted following and positive praises in the press. As an independent artist however, his biggest fans and praises have come from within the songwriter circles themselves. “I’m especially fond of Tex’s train songs, they have a certain lonely feel to them that I’m very drawn to. While he’s never dour, Tex can be quite sentimental; he has the ability to make you almost as chilly as the characters of which he sings about.” writes Murry Hammond (Old 97’s). “Honest, sweet and playful lyrics delivered in, but not contained by traditional Honky Tonk style, Tex Smith is a unique and thankfully, prolific singer songwriter!” says Whit Smith (Hot Club of Cowtown).
