"Buxton's forthcoming album, Half A Native, signals a departure from the rustic sound they have become known for and adds elements of indie rock, psychedelia, honky-tonk, ambience and distortion, resulting in their most realized album to date. Having enjoyed great success regionally in their hometown of Houston and throughout the South, the five-piece band decided to shake things up for this album and headed to Los Angeles to work with producer Thom Monahan (Devendra Banhart, Vetiver, Beachwood Sparks)."
"William Wild’s self-titled debut is a dynamic synthesis of 60’s folk and 1970’s rock ’n’ roll. The band’s distinct blend of acoustic instrumentation, lush strings, heavy percussion, and dynamic vocal melodies evokes a nostalgic yet modern approach to folk rock."

"Several years ago, my brother introduced me to Townes Van Zandt. I fell in love with his songs and the way he tells stories. His music led me to Guy Clark, Emmylou Harris, Woody Guthrie and many others who have influenced my writing," reflects O'Meara. "I'm fascinated with the paradox that a person's life can be full of pain and sorrow, and all the while full of hope and light. I've seen this in myself and I write about it all the time."
