Zac Wilkerson
Zac Wilkerson is a SOUL ROCKER from the COUNTRY.

Powerful, soulful vocals and a driving guitar style combine with poignant songwriting to deliver a new take on Americana, Soul, Country, and Rock.
Wilkerson stumbled into a career in music after being tricked into entering, and eventually winning, The Blue Light Live Singer Songwriter contest in 2011. The prize was a Solo Acoustic set at the 2012 Larry Joe Taylor's Texas Music Festival in Stephenville, TX. He has since etched out a strong following across the Texas the music scene and beyond, with his work appearing in Nationally Syndicated and Regional Radio, and Local and Prime-Time Network TV.
Wilkerson cut his musical teeth in a country church where he started singing at 4. At a young age, he discovered his parents' country, soul, Motown, rock, and folk records, creating a musical foundation with as much variety as passion.  By 12 he played several instruments, including piano and guitar, which led to songwriting that same year. The musical voice that has evolved since is a fresh take on Rock, Soul, Country and Americana evoking Aretha Franklin, Bill Withers, Bonnie Raitt, and Levon Helm.

Based out of Austin, TX, Beth Lee grew up on the grit and soul of the Houston music scene, her dad a long time musician of the Bayou City. Since 2008, Beth has been playing live and recording her original music with Austin musicians that have an ear for her songwriting ability. Her influences span generations of blues, country, and rock 'n' roll greats that lead her to a unique soulful, country-tinged brand of roots rock 'n' roll. With her 2013 release One More Time Again - and debut as Beth Lee & The Breakups - she began honing in and developing her energetic live performances. Her soulful, heart-on-your-sleeve songwriting style evolved to include a sultry, sassy, rock 'n' roll edge. Her most recent album, Keep Your Mouth Shut, released May 5th, 2016, garnered positive reviews from independent radio and roots publications, including a #19 rank on the Americana Music Show's year end list and a flattering review from KUTX's Laurie Gallardo, who coined the sound as "country-fried rock 'n' soul". It was also listed in Alternate Root Magazine and Third Coast Music Magazine as one of the year's top picks. Beth is planning a new studio release for 2019, and continues to tour frequently throughout Texas, the Southeast, Midwest, New Mexico, and Colorado, solo and with her band, Beth Lee & The Breakups.
