The Ian Moore 3
The Ian Moore 3
Since his arrival as a solo artist in 1993 and his self-titled debut on Capricorn Records, Texas Music star Ian Moore, has been on a journey of perpetual forward motion and constant change. That record included the hits, “Satisfied” and “Blue Sky”, and even featured the track, “Harlem”, which was made in to a music video by rap icon, Ice Cube.

Moore’s upcoming “Strange Days” EP was birthed by Ian channeling all of the influences from his childhood, soul music and the blues. All the while, carrying forward the hard-earned life lessons acquired on said journey- that allow him to infuse these songs with a depth that only comes from many years and countless miles. Moore’s ability to straddle genres like a Neil Young or a Jack White is obvious.

By paying tribute to such luminaries as Curtis Mayfield, Otis Redding, Aaron Neville (even covering “Hercules”), and Sly Stone - Ian Moore can offer music politically charged at times, as well as the heartfelt love song filled with emotion and purpose.
The Heavy Hands
The Heavy Hands
The Heavy Hands is a boisterous rock 'n' roll trio hailing from Dallas, TX.
Their dynamic live show offers an unruly mix of punk, rock, and blues, which commands the attention of any crowd.
Before fronting The Heavy Hands, lead singer/guitarist John Tipton played with an indie pop band, but found his musical contributions to be too antagonistic for the genre. The band’s flame eventually burned out, allowing Tipton to stoke smoldering embers and ignite a fire of his own.
While kindling this new flame, Tipton focused on writing new material. He soon crossed paths with drummer Zack Wiese and the two almost immediately started playing live shows. When it came time to find a qualified bass player, Zack’s brother Collin was the obvious choice. With Collin's addition in late 2014, the band’s lineup was finalized and The Heavy Hands was officially born.
Since then, the band has been working on refining their sound while aggressively playing in venues ranging from small basements to popular local hotspots, where they have gained a respectable following. Their tenacity secured them a spot in the nationally acclaimed 35 Denton Music Festival this March as well as two consecutive appearances at Denton’s own Oaktopia Fest later this year.
But the best is yet to come. Now that the band has developed a signature style and sound, they’re embarking on their first full-length record, which is expected to be released this spring.
