Mayeux & Broussard
While they're no strangers to small-town honky-tonks and dancehalls, Mayeux and Broussard play with a gritty intensity that makes them stand out like a sore thumb from most of the Texas country music scene.
Just as sassy as Loretta Lynn, Kathryn is a singer-songwriter in Austin, TX that is genuine and passionate about traditional country music. On a mission to keep the spirit of the hold days alive, she wears her influences on her sleeve, writing songs that are her modern take on the beloved sounds of country music past.
Singer and guitarist Aaron McDonnell was born and raised in Oregon's rural Willamette Valley to a mill-working father and a God-fearing mother. He bought his first guitar, a knock-off Telecaster, when he was 15 years old and proceeded to learn everything from Garth Brooks to Nirvana, however it was the sound of the oldger generation that captured his imagination; George Jones, Johnny Cash, and Conway Twitty songs drifted from the radios and turntables of his grandmothers' kitchens and living rooms. This heritage is alive and well in McDonnell's earnest and straightforward songs, and strong, clear baritone.
