Ray Wylie HubbardRay Wylie Hubbard is a Texas original. He’s old enough to collect retirement, but he’s still writing songs, recording, performing, producing, touring, and scoring movies, and he still has the same wily spirit that has been his trademark since he wrote “Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mothers,” a hit for Jerry Jeff Walker in the early 1970s and an anthem for the Texas music scene.

Shelley Doty“I play rock with a jazz attitude,” Shelley Doty said in an interview in the San Francisco Chronicle. “I'm not interested in playing the same song the same way for 18 years. When I write a song, I think of it as its own universe. I give my musicians a recording of the melody, then tell them to come up with their own interpretation.” Those musicians, the members of her X-tet, keep changing.
