Austin, TX's resident rocker, Emily Wolfe transcends the ranks of ordinary musicians. Her creative songwriting keeps her fans aglow thanks to her strong, powerful lead vocals and dominating guitar style. Wolfe has shared stages with the likes of Heart, The Pretenders, Peter Frampton, Billy Gibbons and Gary Clark Jr.

Emily Wolfe, a self-taught guitar player starting at the age of 5, has honed her craft over the past 22 years and continues to take her playing to the next level. After self-releasing her EP "Roulette" in 2014 followed by single "Atta Blues" in 2016, Emily used 2017 and 2018 to strategize and write new music. She released a debut self-titled, full-length album in February 2019.

Wolfe has been described as a sonic merging of PJ Harvey and Jack White and is guaranteed to not disappoint early fans who are already along for the ride to greatness. Featured by the Wall Street Journal, MTV, NPR, and American Songwriter, Emily Wolfe is definitely one to watch.

The Stompers
"I've always had fun making music with folks over the years, but I can't remember having more fun jamming than with these two guys!"
 
Madison Williams, guitarist with the Stompers, reflects on the chemistry between himself and bandmates Gary Bowling on drums and Steve Langston on bass. "I had some original tunes collecting dust in my head, and the three of us got together intending to record those songs, not really forming a band to go out and play gigs. We found out quickly that we enjoy more than just each other's musicianship. We jam pretty hard, but we laugh even harder!"
 
The band name itself comes from an inside joke about one particular member's enthusiastic method of keeping time. 
 
Individually, each of the Stompers is a multi-instrumentalist, and each has played in a number of local and regional bands over the years. Their set list consists of Blues, Funk, Rock, and Boogie originals and covers.
