She’s not exactly a rebel, but with her musical mashup of Waylon, Skynyrd, and Janis Joplin, you could be forgiven for thinking she is. In reality, Texas singer/songwriter Briana Adams is a sweet-natured Southern crooner that really just wants to share her music with the world.

Her songs are a honky tonk acid trip of classic dancehall and 70’s outlaw country rolled into a tight-knit package, all headlined by a big Texas voice and an unmistakable style that’s all her own. And if you catch a little twist of blues and rock’n’ roll in the vocal, that’s not by accident. Growing up in a small Texas town like Winchester, that’s the way country music is done!

For the last 12 years, Briana has been touring all over Texas. She has opened for some Texas Country/Red Dirt greats along the way too! Including, The Bellamy Brothers, Randy Rogers Band, Jason Boland & The Stragglers, & Charlie Robison. Just to name a few.

With unlikely roots for a country singer, Northern California native Bob Appel was exposed to the neo-traditional country sounds of Alan Jackson, Randy Travis, George Strait, Dwight Yoakam, and Aaron Tippin as a teen. It took years to appreciate the poetic story-telling, simple musical structure, and heartfelt vocal performance evident in their songs, and to understand that there was a common source of inspiration -- one steeped in country music traditions from prior generations. After one visit to Austin, Texas, Bob found music brought back to the basics, on a small stage with a small audience -- a participatory audience with diverse ways of appreciating traditional country music, whether two-stepping and waltzing, tapping a foot, singing along, marveling at the fiddle and steel, or simply reminiscing. Since moving to the live music capital in 2010, after years of watching from a seat, Bob Appel stands up every day and night -- at dance halls, festivals, markets, opry shows, honky tonks, beer joints, and bars -- bringing the musical traditions of times gone by to times yet to come.
