Quiet Company
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 7:10pm - 7:25pm @ Austin Music Hall (208 Nueces St)

    This event was recommended by The Austin Chronicle in the article "State of Love and Trust: Belief in the 2011-12 Austin Music Awards," by Raoul Hernandez. You can read the full feature here.

    Quiet Company
    Quiet Company is from Austin , Texas — a city rich in musical diversity, enormous talent and
    towering musical history—but the quintet brings their own unique brand of indie power pop that
    sets them apart. What started as a solo project of prolific frontman Taylor Muse eventually grew
    to a full band with the addition of Tommy Blank (Guitar), Matt Parmenter (Bass), Jeff Weathers
    (Drums) and Cody Ackors (Trombone). Quiet Company has forged a familiar yet unique
    celebratory pop-rock sound layered with introspective lyrics that explore love, death and incisive
    observations about human nature.
    2010 was a breakout year of sorts for the five-piece group upon the release of “Songs for
    Staying In”, which features singles that landed regular rotations on almost every rock and
    pop radio station in Austin, and TV placements on MTV’s The Real World: New Orleans,
    E! Channel’s Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The hard-earned buzz earned them a live
    taping in Austin City Limits Studio 6a, as well as acting roles (as themselves) on ABC’s former
    documentary drama My Generation.
    The band’s latest endeavor, “We Are All Where We Belong”—mixed by legendary engineer
    Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, U2, The Cure)—chronicles the many different emotions that a person
    goes through in a break up: sadness, resentment, self-doubt, but ultimately hope and the
    indescribable joy and freedom that comes from the realization of making the right decision.
    “It is easily the most personal thing I’ve ever written,” Muse said. “It is, essentially, a break up
    record, only the romance that’s ending was between myself and religion.”
    Musically, the album maintains the band’s richly arranged, consistently catchy pop hooks and
    encompassing vocal harmonies but explores new territory with full orchestral arrangements and
    new sonic textures. Lyrically, the album is a departure from the former “Songs For Staying In”
    but the juxtaposition of heavier lyrical content and their trademarked upbeat sound makes for an
    engaging, above-the-cut musical experience.
    Quiet Company recently teamed up with Grooveshark and Rocket Science to release the new
    album. Leveraging the strengths of both companies to spearhead a truly progressive music
    marketing endeavor, the relationship provides a realistic strategy to provide a road map that
    artists can use to achieve success in a rapidly changing industry.
    Since the band’s inception in 2005, Quiet Company has traveled the country far and wide,
    logging more than 400 shows since 2007 including performing in front of 10,000 people at
    KGSR’s annual Blues On The Green in Zilker park, several sold out shows at House of Blues
    and have had the opportunity to share the stage with bands such as Toadies, Rooney, Evan
    Dando and Bob Schneider among others.
    From the band’s inception through their rapid growth, the goal has never changed: To write
    intelligent, epic pop music that shines with honesty and provokes self-reflection.

    Quiet Company is joyful, magnificent indie powerpop. If you love...

Joe King Carrasco and the Crowns
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 7:45pm - 8:05pm @ Austin Music Hall (208 Nueces St)

    This event was recommended by The Austin Chronicle in the article "State of Love and Trust: Belief in the 2011-12 Austin Music Awards," by Raoul Hernandez. You can read the full feature here.

    In the late summer 1979, Joe "King" Carrasco formed a stripped-down four-piece combo to replace his Chicano big band, El Molino. Dubbed the Crowns, organist/accordionist Kris Cummings, bassist Brad Kizer, and drummer Miguel Navarro backed up Carrasco at Raul's, the famed punk club, and the Hole-in-the-Wall, and other University of Texas-area venues in Austin, quickly gaining a following around their revved-up Tex-Mex brand of punk rock, harkening back to the classic Vox and Farfisa organ-driven sound first popularized by the 1960s Texas bands Sir Douglas Quintet ("She's About A Mover"), Sam The Sham and The Pharoahs ("Wooly Bully"), and ? And the Mysterians ("96 Tears").

Alejandro Escovedo and The Sensitive Boys
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 10:20pm - 10:40pm @ Austin Music Hall (208 Nueces St)

    This event was recommended by The Austin Chronicle in the article "State of Love and Trust: Belief in the 2011-12 Austin Music Awards," by Raoul Hernandez. You can read the full feature here.

    Austin troubadour Alejandro Escovedo’s journey has taken him from Texas to California to New York and back again to Texas, encompassing a breadth of music as varied as the many bands he was part of before embarking on a solo career. In the 1970s, he surfaced on San Francisco's punk scene, a guitarist in the Nuns; Rank & File helped unite the disparate worlds of punk and country in the 1980s; and after he moved back to Austin, the True Believers combined all manner of Americana music in a harbinger of what was to come in Alejandro's solo career which begun in 1992 with the album Gravity.

    When I was nine years old, I innocently begged my parents for a guitar. As I grew older and realized that I loved to write music and sing, my dream quickly became apparent. I took every record I could find around my house, from Marvin Gaye to Bob Marley, and began to cover the sounds, adding many of the Caribbean beats I heard so often while I was in the Bahamas with my family. By chance, a family friend introduced me to Pharrell Williams, who gave me my first career advice. I took it to heart and with the help of family, friends and now my great fans, I've begun touring the country and reached millions of you on YouTube. I can't wait to see where this road takes me and I hope to see you out there soon!

    Sunday March 18, 2012 12:15am - 12:40am @ Austin Music Hall (208 Nueces St)

    Grammy award-winning record producer Timbaland will release his new album, Shock Value III, in 2012. “Pass At Me,” the first official single from the album, features Pitbull with productions by David Guetta and was released on September 13, 2011. Timbaland also appears on David Guetta's LP Nothing But the Beat on "I Just Wanna F." with Dev and Afrojack.
    Timbaland has stamped his indelible imprint on the music scene since the mid-1990s. His production has helped create career-defining hits for artists such as Jodeci, Aaliyah, Ginuwine, Missy Elliott, Destiny’s Child, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg and Jay-Z, amongst others. Respected beyond the genres of urban and hip hop music, Timbaland’s musical influences cross cultural lines: he has been sought by diverse superstars from Justin Timberlake to avant-singer Bjork.
    Timbaland introduced a unique rhythmic style that defined the new wave of music in the ‘90s: R&B and hip hop amalgamated with an eclectic smorgasbord of effects held together by complex syncopated snare beats. His style burgeoned when he produced Ginuwine’s hit single “Pony” and debut LP Ginuwine…the Bachelor. At the same time, his partnership with high school friend Missy Elliott blossomed into a pairing that delivered Aaliyah’s double platinum One In A Million and the two artists became one of music’s most successful production/songwriting teams. Naturally, Elliott also looked to Timbaland to define her as an artist, and their work together (tracks such as “The Rain”) propelled Elliott to major stardom and critical acclaim.
    Timbaland’s trademark sound has spawned numerous imitators; yet, he has always remained the acknowledged originator. He began a new label in partnership with Interscope even as he delivered another three albums for Elliott, including 2005’s The Cookbook. He also launched Tweet, who debuted with Southern Hummingbird and produced Lil’ Kim’s “The Jump Off.” The Game relied on Timbaland for “Steer” and “Put You On The Game.”
    Along the way he built an impressive 5,000 square foot studio in Virginia Beach where he does most of his production and he travels regularly between that location, his Miami residence, and the West Coast. In 2006 he founded a new label, again at Interscope, appropriately called Mosely Music Group (MMG). Open to all types of artists, MMG debuted with a bang: Nelly Furtado’s “Promiscuous” featuring Timbaland hit #1, as did her album, Loose. In 2007, Timbaland released his second solo album, Timbaland Presents ShockValue (Blackground/Interscope/Mosley Music Group).
