Emily Gimble “brings to the stage a powerhouse piano style that invokes Texas’ favorite keyboard mistresses, part Marcia Ball boogie-woogie and part Bobbie Nelson steady-rockin’. She’s got honky-tonk style, country rhythm, and a soaring set of jazzy pipes that hearken from her heritage well into the future”- Margaret Moser
The granddaughter of fiddle great Johnny Gimble, Emily’s been a member of the Asleep At The Wheel, The Warren Hood Band, and Marshall Ford Swing Band, and kicked off her solo career in 2016.
Evan Charles & Altamesa
Evan Charles & Altamesa Americana/Folk = Altamesa is the backing band that performs the songs of Evan Charles. The idea of Altamesa born of an offhand conversation with producer and multi-instrumentalist Jonas Wilson (Lomita, The White White Lights, The Midnight Stroll), who was familiar both with Charles’ songwriting in The Sweet Nuthin and with his side work in The Happen-ins and Nic Armstrong and the Thieves. “He told me, ‘Hey, all this stuff you’re doing is great but you need to get back to doing your own songs.’ So I said, ‘Alright, let’s make a record.’ We took Leonard Cohen’s Songs From A Room and Neil Young’s Harvest as our sonic reference points and went from there.”
