Dustin Prinz - Eleven

Few musicians take the time to master their instrument in the way that Oklahoma City singer-songwriter Dustin Prinz has; he’s a guitar virtuoso in every sense of the word, and Eleven gives him the chance to show just how far he can push that skill.

Horse Thief – Fear in Bliss

Listening to Horse Thief’s previous release — the haphazardly melodramatic Grow Deep, Grow Wild — felt like a chore. Whatever potential the Oklahoma City folk-pop act demonstrated on the EP was obscured behind a formulaic, contrived and ultimately hollow cloud. But it at least offered a glimmer of promise for a band consisting of, frankly, five pretty talented dudes. Critics saw it; the band’s management saw it; its current label, Bella Union, saw it; and its increasingly fervid fan base saw it.

Colourmusic — May You Marry Rich

There’s always a sense of danger when debuting songs in a live setting and playing them well. Without having heard the studio versions, expectations are set according to the live incarnations. But capturing the breadth of free-flowing atmosphere and sheer volume on a disc, vinyl or digital file isn’t the easiest thing to do, especially for a band as vociferous as Colourmusic.

Em and the MotherSuperiors — Churches into Theaters

As titles go, Churches into Theaters is an apt descriptor for the debut album from Oklahoma City rockers Em and the MotherSuperiors. It’s a reverential record, one that shares the gospel of classic rock, blues and soul but embraces the need to refashion it for modern times, channeling The Dead Weather, Grace Potter and Cage the Elephant along the way.

Ty Kamm is the assistant manager at Joe's Place Fine Wine & Spirits in Norman, but you might recognize him as the showman fronting longtime local heroes Klipspringer.
 
"My discount comes in handy for the rock 'n' roll lifestyle," Kamm said.
 
BUSY, BUT EASY

For Kamm, the job has lasted nearly as long as his music career; he's been at Joe's for 15 years, and been making music for 17.
 
"I'm not getting rich at either, but I'm still making my music, and that was always my intent," he said. "It's a pretty stress-free life " really busy " but essentially stress free."
 
BEING A NOVELTY
He enjoys the notoriety of being a workplace celebrity, which he said his co-workers find amusing.
 
"They usually say they had no idea I had it in me," he said.
 
Kamm seems quite comfortable with his place at Joe's, and in the band.
 
"We realized a long time ago that we weren't going to be the next U2," he said. "We just make our silly tunes, and if some people like them, great. If they don't, then screw them. The beat goes on." "Tory Troutman
