– Words by James Schultz –
We are highlighting a few of the artists performing at Hand Drawn Records inaugural “Not-South By” showcase. Austin’s Brandon Callies Band is next up to bat.
Singer-songwriter Brandon Callies has linked up with an impressive set of Austin impresarios to make up a raucously refined, folk-rock sound; best likened to a more subdued The Band. Callies sure-voiced tenor and the band’s beefy rhythm section show how it’s supposed to be done on Sixth Street—keeping the party classy, and doing it with heart.
Brandon Callies Band performs March 15th, at Brass House for Hand Drawn Records “The Unofficial: Not-South By” Showcase. See listing for full list of performers and times.
