Austin, Texas, has long been a breeding ground for fantastic musicians. Not only has the town birthed some of the best players one could ever hope to hear, it also attracts peerless musicians from all over the world. Kalu and the Electric Joint not only live up to Austin’s caliber of playing, they infuse it with worldly rhythms that give their music a sound all their own.
Hailing from central Texas Hill country, the Shaws of Awe have grooved their way to the forefront of the Texas Funk Movement. Since their beginnings, in the early summer of 2015, the Shaws’ eclectic style of “Jaw Dropping Funk” (Texas State University magazine, June 2016) has very quickly made them a favorite amongst audiences of all ages.
