William Beckmann was raised on the Mexican border in the town of Del Rio, Texas. At an early age, Beckmann discovered his passion for writing songs and performing. The 24 year-old singer considers his music to be a blend between Traditional Country and Americana, and often writes songs that are reflective of his small town upbringing. Beckmann’s new album “Outskirts of Town” is a compilation of songs that captures the innocence of young love in Del Rio and the difficulties that come with leaving that behind. The seven song album was released in late November of 2018 and includes the single “I Wanna See You Tonight” which has a classic 90’s country sound. The album also includes the heart-wrenching ballad “Leavin’ Town” which was produced by legendary songwriter Radney Foster, a Del Rio native himself. Beckmann has played with, and opened up for several Texas Country artists including Radney Foster, Kevin Fowler, Randy Rogers, Ray Wylie Hubbard, The Damn Quails, and Zane Williams. Currently, Beckmann is doing a Texas acoustic tour to promote his new release.

Tyler McCollum’s style of singing & songwriting touches on the Country, Americana, Blues & Folk genres. He began playing guitar and writing at the age of 10 in his hometown of Conroe, TX and later spent formative years in Stephenville TX, Nashville TN, and now Austin TX, where he currently lives. McCollum’s devotion to crafting songs wrapped in story and imagery, offer a unique perception for the listener to enjoy. He credits many Texas songwriters as his earliest influences including Hayes Carll, Adam Carroll and Davin James as just a few of his early musical inspirations. Tyler has a new record “Backbone”available now.
