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.

Based in Austin, Texas, singer-songwriter Patrice Pike is proud for being known as an "eclectic" artist, mixing guitar-oriented rock with soulful singing.
 
It must be working because Pike landed a spot on the CBS reality show "Rock Star: Supernova" last year, where she competed for a chance to be lead singer in a band featuring former Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee.
 
"They wanted to bring rock to mainstream TV. I liked that a lot more than being in the band they were auditioning for," Pike said. "It was fun for me, though, because my whole intention in playing music is communicating. And being able to play music for millions of people around the world, eventually being able to play my own music there ... I mean, who's gonna say no to that?"
 
AWARDS WINNER
While Pike didn't win on the show, she was this year's big winner at the Austin Music Awards, where she won Musician of the Year and three other awards, and was inducted into the Hall of Fame.
 
"In Austin, you don't win awards for being on TV. It can actually wreck your credibility. So, it was really validating for me," she said. "I'm a musician. I'm also a writer. I love the art of writing and communication through words." "Tracy M. Rogers
