“Casey isn’t just a great singer. She’s a true songwriter and as the stories come forth in the music you find yourself loving, laughing, hurting, celebrating and yearning right along with her.”Casey embarked on a new chapter in her life, moving to Denison, Texas, and in recording her first album, “When the Party’s All Over”, at Bent Leaf Recording Studio. This album was released on January 12, 2019.

Casey is a talented singer, songwriter and a dreamer; her songs and melodies will not only strike the hearts of fans now, but hopefully withstand the test of time. She is truly inspired, in fact compelled, by the heart of man in sorrow and in love, as both offer the tools needed to bring people together through music.
Charlie J. Memphis - (Set time: 8:15 PM)
Charlie J. Memphis
A Texan by way of Illinois, Charlie J Memphis’ fate was sealed the moment he touched an electric guitar. The singer-songwriter was introduced to piano and classical guitar at a young age. It was the electricity of the steel strings with the buzz of a tube amp that captivated his imagination and set him on his path. Memphis was raised in the suburbs of Chicago but found his voice and sound after moving to Texas. He has developed a unique sound that has been inspired by his new home in Texas which pays tribute to southern rock, outlaw and cosmic country, while not forsaking his punk and blues roots. He has been fearless when it comes to forging ahead in musical directions not explored by any other artist near his age.
2018 was a big year for Charlie, as he dropped his first ep, Bloody Is the Water and two singles. He is currently preparing to release a set of covers from artists that have inspired and encouraged him on his journey. He will also be heading into Echo Labs to record new music that will demonstrate his continued growth as an artist, set to be released later this year.
Charlie is actively performing with his band The Boneshakers, as well as doing solo gigs across Texas. He also plays bass for Nathan Mongol Wells as a member of Ten Gallon, as well as supporting other bands as called upon, which he does with serious passion and a natural ability. When not performing he can be found at The Echo Labs where Matt Pence is developing his ear for producing and collaborating with artist during their recording sessions.
Norman Baker - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Norman Baker
Traveling, creating, and sharing original live music are a few essential ingredients for the enrichment of humanity. Norman Baker and his band play homage to this fact by introducing new and old songs to as many communities as possible. Their new album utilizes undertones of pedal steel, mandolin, banjo, upright bass, clarinet, and of course an onslaught of acoustic and electric guitars telling stories of loss, loss prevention, camping, driving without cell phones, childlike innocence, home towns, and walking till your shoes wear through.

Baker's respect of family values, roots, and tradition is evident throughout his music. His debut release, "The Art of Not Knowing," features his mother on fiddle, father on keys, uncle on drums, himself on many other instruments, in addition to several other Seattle musical stalwarts. The artwork for his newest release, "Present Day," features a series of photos from a 1970 house concert of his pops performing, his mom in attendance, and cops busting the party.

Norman was 13 the first time he performed on stage with fellow Backroads band mate Michael Muir. They sang and played Beatles and CCR while sitting in with the band their dads were in together. Twenty years later their harmonies and guitar work continue to weave seamlessly through timeless original rootsy compositions. Muir's Clapton and Allman tinged guitar approach meshed with Baker's Doc Watson meets Neil Young influences prove to be a great combo as the band continues tacking on the miles around the Western US.
