  • Lucy Wainwright Roche at the Me&Thee Nov 4, 2016


    Lucy Wainwright Roche first came to my attention as one of the Emerging Artists at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in 2008. The audience voted for her return as the “Most Wanted” the following year. She also won the New Folk award at the famous Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas that year. Since that time, Lucy’s music, songwriting skills and stage presence have made her popular here in the United States and beyond. She has toured with her father, Loudon Wainwright III, her mother, Suzzy Roche, Rufus Wainwright her half-brother, and Martha Wainwright, her half-sister as well as other notable musicians such as Dar Williams. Lucy is known for her honest and humorous banter on stage and leaves her audiences with big, wide grins and hearts full of joy.

  • Matt the Electrician at the Me&Thee Nov 4, 2016


    Sometimes it only takes one song to make one a fan of a musician. For me it was “Osaka in the Rain” by Matt the Electrician. It’s the lyrics, it’s the melody, it’s a certain magical majesty. Once I heard that one song, I sought out more music by Matt the Electrician and discovered that he played with many other musicians from Austin that I respected. He is one of the hardest working musicians in Texas!

    Connor Garvey is one of a cadre of singer-songwriters who have been following in the footsteps on Ellis Paul, Cheryl Wheeler, John Gorka, Patty Larkin, Greg Brown, and others who have toured across the United States (and beyond) for the past couple of decades. Connor has many miles under his belt (or on his odometer) and has sung his songs at some of the best listening rooms around. He’s played at and won honors at some of the biggest folk festivals in the country like Kerrville, Falcon Ridge and Rocky Mountain Folk.

  • Raina Rose at the Me&Thee Oct 21, 2016


    The Austin Chronicle says of Raina Rose: “Even her name reads like a poem.” Yes, folks, her lyrics are poetry and her voice is silky and satiny and all things exquisite. She’s been on my radar for nearly ten years and it’s been a delight to observe her confidence grow and the love of her fans escalate. Raina Rose keeps on getting better and she’s a genuine joy to behold.
