The self proclaimed ‘Dirty Old One Man Band’ successfully, and sometimes violently, lashes together blues, hillbilly and country precariously into raucous punk and godless metal. Years of non-stop touring have honed his assault to a fine edge; his wide-eyed throw downs in the First Church of Ultimate Fanaticism routinely lead giddy followers to a fiery baptism.
Biram ain’t no candy-ass singer/songwriter either, sweetly strumming songs about girls with big eyes and dusty highways. HELL NO!!! His singing, yodeling, growling, leering and brash preachin’ and hollerin’ is accompanied by sloppy riffs and licks from his 1959 Gibson guitar and pounding backbeat brought forth by his amplified left foot. The remainder of this one-man band consists of an unwieldy combination of beat-up amplifiers and old microphones strung together by a tangled mess of guitar cables.
Jenny Parrott has been singing to herself since she could walk and has been writing songs for half her life. In 2006 she moved to Austin, TX and formed and fronted Western Swing Pop trio Shotgun Party. The trio toured the USA and Europe extensively, putting out 3 full length albums of mostly Parrott’s original material. Jenny then co fronted vocal harmony based Folk Rock Band Loves It, and continued to tour and put out 2 full length albums. Jenny’s three plus octave voice lights up a room whether she’s singing in English or Spanish, and Kinky Friedman says her compositions are the “Best songs I’ve heard since Christ was a cowboy!”. Jenny has played prisons, a black panther reunion party, children’s shows, streets all over the world, and every basement from here to New York. She has opened for Jonathan Richman, Wild Child, Kinky Friedman, Lake Street Dive, Pokey LaFarge, and Delbert McClinton. Here solo debut album “When I Come Down” was named in the Austin Chronicle’s Top Ten for 2017, and she is currently awaiting the release of her second album “The Fire I Saw” due in November.
