Austin Upchurch with Colton Rice
Add to Calendar
FROM THE HUMBLE BEGINNINGS OF SMALL TOWN GODLEY, TEXAS, AUSTIN UPCHURCH HAS BEEN HUNGRY TO CHASE DOWN A DREAM HE DIDN'T THINK WAS POSSIBLE UNTIL HE TAUGHT HIMSELF HOW TO PLAY GUITAR IN HIS DORM ROOM IN COLLEGE. AFTER FINISHING SCHOOL AT HOWARD PAYNE UNIVERSITY, HE PROCEEDED TO CHASE AFTER HIS OWN PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS. WITH HIS INITIAL RELEASE OF A BACKSIDED SINGLE TITLED ALL WRONG, UPCHURCH WAS ABLE TO GET HIS DREAM OUT FOR PEOPLE TO SAMPLE FOR THE FIRST TIME. HE RELEASED HIS MUSIC ON SPOTIFY, AMAZON MUSIC, AND ITUNES IN 2017. IN 2019, UPCHURCH RELEASED TWO MORE BACKSIDED SINGLES TITLED "REMEMBER WHEN" AND "A HUNDRED THOUGHTS". ARTISTS THAT INFLUENCED HIS STYLE AND APPROACH TO WRITING SONGS INCLUDE JACKSON BROWNE, JASON ISBELL, CODY CANADA, TOM PETTY, AND MORE. UPCHURCH IS CURRENTLY WORKING ON A FULL-LENGTH RECORD EXPECTED TO RELEASE IN 2020.
Formed in early 2018, the Colton Rice Band offers a refreshing dose of music with a range of influences stemming from the Texas Music and Alternative Rock scenes. The Colton Rice Band captures their audience with memorable melodies and catchy lyricism that speaks right to the heart of the listener, while keeping true to their roots of traditional rock n' roll. Through many years of personal life experience and heavy doses of life’s ups and downs, the band's passion to connect with their listeners is the driving force behind their trade. The band's inaugural single “Galveston” was released in January 2019 and is the title track on their debut EP that is scheduled for release Spring of 2019.
