Drew Moreland is an original Texas Country Music artist.
His style is an amalgamation of Country, Americana, and Southern Rock.
True to traditional country roots music, most of his songs tell stories.
For shows that require long sets (2hrs+), he plays cover music from traditional country artists and classic southern rock favorites.
The size of Drew’s band varies based on the size/ requirements of each venue.
Typically a 3 piece with percussion and steel guitar, Drew can also play as a solo Acoustic act or a full blown 5 piece country band.
Born on January 12th, 1984 in San Antonio, TX, Drew Moreland was raised in a city with many converging cultures. Despite growing up in what is now the 7th largest city in the United States, Drew’s life was grounded by his parents who both came from a small farming community. From an early age, he enjoyed listening to music and playing it came naturally.
Drew Moreland and the Neon Hustle got its start in the spring of 2016 as a songwriting project between Drew and his brother-in-law Garland (Lee) Wenner. At the time, there were no intentions to actually start a band. It wasn’t until Drew was invited to play country music at a summer event that a band materialized to play some of the songs they had written.
In February of 2017, Matthew Parker, a long time friend and accomplished musician in the Texas Country music scene, recommended recording some of the songs Drew wrote with Garland as an EP. Over the next two months he helped produce their first album. Bench Seat Revival was officially released in April of 2017!
Drew Moreland plays with his band, The Neon Hustle, and also as a solo acoustic act. Playing several nights every week in South and Central Texas, Drew’s live show has been received well by all (with the exception of a few disgruntled Cajuns who didn’t like the song about Louisiana).
Drew Fish is a Texas country original. The Drew Fish Band’s show has definitely earned it’s good-time, beer drinking reputation over the years. It’s easy to understand why after seeing his music videos full of up-beat, party anthems or experiencing the band’s high-energy show for yourself. You might even see a cameo or two from 9-time Grammy Award winner Ray Benson in the Small Price to Pay music video or hear a song co-written by 34-time top 10 songwriter Byron Hill with the band’s first radio single off of their upcoming album, Better Place. From media outlets in France and England to CMT, the band’s music videos have drawn attention internationally. 2017 was a record year for the band with Sounds Like A Plan being the sixth most played song of the year on regional radio and their music videos garnering over one million views, but the band didn’t slow down and their most recent single release, Flood, shot up the radio charts at lightning pace to become the band’s first two-week #1. Adding on to the 25 Grammy Awards that are featured on the band’s past two records, Drew is now in the studio tracking his third studio record produced by five-time Grammy Award winner Adam Odor that is set to release in early 2019. The new record will feature songs that Drew wrote with Byron Hill (Fool Hearted Memory – George Strait; Born Country – Alabama; Nothin’ On But The Radio – Gary Allan), Roger Brown (We Must Be Lovin’ Right and Need I say More – George Strait; She Gets That Way – Kenny Chesney; All Hat, No Cattle – Trace Adkins), Tommy Conners (The Highway – Willie Nelson; Simple As Dirt – Chris Ledoux; I Wish I Was Wrong – Travis Tritt; Just Like A Rodeo – John Michael Montgomery), and Curtis Grimes (NBC’s The Voice).

Chad Ware has been playing music most of his life. He started playing guitar at age 10 and by his early 20’s was making quite a name for himself in the Houston area as a lead guitar player. Chad eventually went on to play lead guitar for major acts such as Perfect Stranger, Janie Fricke, Rick Trevino, and Cory Morrow. Chad has played all across the country on some of the largest venues including the privilege of playing on the legendary Grand Ole Opry in Nashville Tennesse. These days Chad has his own band and they are tearing it up. With Chad’s great guitar skills and killer vocals he has put together a “Super Group” of musicians with just as much experience as him to form a powerhouse country band. Their approach to music is unique and original, they have a sound that is becoming the talk around Texas. There is no doubt that those who catch Chad Ware band playing will be completely blown away by the level of talent and energy that they bring to their shows.
Jake Ward made his public debut as a country artist in 2014 at Larry Joe Taylor’s Festival, where he played what would become the first single, HIT THE ROAD. He and the band cut the song as a demo and it made its way onto local radio stations in his hometown of Corpus Christi, Texas, eventually reaching the top 30 and becoming one of the top 100 Texas radio songs of 2014. Increasingly successful singles followed, including IGNORANT BLISS (#16), and 4 consecutive #1 singles, TAKE MY HAND (#1 March 2016), LONELY STREET (#1 September 2016), RESTLESS (#1 September 2017), and NOT TOO FAR TO REACH (#1 February 2018).
Four years after Jake and the band cut their first single, they have developed a reputation for high-energy original songs, blending classic country with contemporary rock and rich harmonies. All of these qualities are on display in their live shows and recordings.
The band released their first album, LOVE DON’T LIVE HERE, in September, 2015 with ten original songs. The album bears the band’s signature blend of Jake’s soulful vocals, with lead guitar by Paul Teltschik, country fiddle by Owen Fitzsimmons, and bass by Mitchell “Sunshine” Williams. Jake’s latest EP, NOT TOO FAR TO REACH, was released in October, 2017, and title track was #1 on Texas regional radio in February 2018.
Growing up, Jake was surrounded by diverse musical influences. He fondly recalls sitting in the back seat of the car listening to Elvis, the Beach Boys, the Eagles, Johnny Cash, George Strait, and other performers from many eras and musical traditions. His great grandfather was a legendary local fiddle player in rural Oklahoma during the depression, and his maternal grandparents were missionaries who taught and recorded music. Jake performed for the first time at the age of 7 at church, and by age 10 had participated in several local musicals in Corpus Christi.
The band headlines throughout Texas, and plays shows with many of the biggest names in Texas music including Aaron Watson, Chris Young, Randy Rogers, Cody Johnson, Cory Morrow, Josh Abbott Band, Wade Bowen, Kevin Fowler, Stoney Larue, Reckless Kelly, William Clark Green, and others.
The group is fronted by brothers Taylor Powell (lead vocals) and Blake Powell (lead guitar). The Powell Brothers spent the first half of 2018 promoting their radio single “Coming Home.” The single enjoyed much success on the charts, spending seven weeks in the Top 20 on both the TRRR and CDX Traction Texas radio charts. The group’s new single, “Somewhere Down The Road,” released to radio on August 13th and was recognized as the highest debuting single on the chart. Both singles were produced by Scott Quintana and engineered/mixed by Gena Johnson (“A Star Is Born” soundtrack, Zac Brown Band, Brandi Carlile) and will be featured on “Leave on the Light,” the band’s first full length record coming out in February of 2019.
The Powell Brothers full-length debut album “Leave On The Light” combines elements of folk-rock, rootsy soul and country. The Houston-based band recorded this album during the aftermath and devastation of Hurricane Harvey. Perseverance, resilience and life on the road provide the backdrop for this new collection of songs that staggers artfully between timeless arrangements and sharp songcraft showcasing a defiant, evolving band on the rise. Taylor Powell had this to say about the new record:
“Hurricane Harvey definitely changed a lot of things for us,” explains Taylor Powell. “The plans we had been making for the previous few months were completely wiped out. As we were tearing down our childhood home, there were definitely many moments of despair. But as they say, when you are going through hell, keep on going. Looking back, it actually wiped the slate clean, and gave us an opportunity to do something much greater than we had planned before. We decided to use this as a sign that it was time to make the record we had always wanted to make.”
The band’s music really comes to life in their high energy live show. In 2018, The Powell Brothers burned up the highway, and the stages they played, hitting major markets from the east to west such as Portland, OR, Santa Fe, NM, Park City, UT, Atlanta, GA, Charlotte, NC. Notably, the band opened for country superstar Billy Currington (South Padre Island, TX); played the Chevrolet Main Stage at the State Fair of Texas (Dallas, TX) performed at the 2018 NHL Draft (Dallas, TX); and sang stirring renditions of the National Anthem and “God Bless America” to a packed house at Globe Life Park (Arlington, TX) during the Houston Astros vs. Texas Rangers game.
The Powell Brothers have been selected to support numerous top national and regional acts, including sharing the stage with names like Lee Brice, Billy Currington, Josh Turner, Gary Allan, Granger Smith, Mark Chesnutt, Suzy Bogguss, The Bellamy Brothers, Pat Green, Cody Johnson, Randy Rogers Band, Jack Ingram and many more.
The band members have many interests outside of music, including sports. The group decided to combine their passions for music and sports by performing at some of the largest collegiate and professional sporting events in the country. The Powell Brothers have been featured at the ● American League Championship Series ● NHL Draft ● Mitsubishi Las Vegas Bowl ● Valero Alamo Bowl ● AT&T “Red River Showdown” and ● Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl. The group has also performed “The Star Spangled Banner” for the ● Houston Astros ● San Diego Padres and ● Texas Rangers.
When asked about The Powell Brothers’ explosive growth and what the future holds, Taylor Powell explained:
“It all boils down to this; good songs and good people. We are committed to the craft of songwriting. Our goal is to make every song and every album better than the last, and to surround ourselves with the best people.”
Blake Powell echoes his brother’s thoughts and added:
“Our goal is to deliver recorded music and live performances worthy of the love and support we are so blessed to receive.”
The Powell Brothers will not slow down in 2019. In addition to the release of “Leave On The Light,” the band has a busy tour schedule that takes them as far west as Sweet Home, Oregon and as far east as Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The group recently reached an agreement with the popular “Tin Roof” live music venues for concert dates in Memphis, TN (2/19), Birmingham, AL (2/21), Charlotte, NC (4/18), Myrtle Beach, SC (4/19), and Columbia, SC (4/20). The Powell Brothers will soon be releasing their 2019 Summer Tour schedule that includes concert dates in New Mexico, Wyoming, Utah, Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon and Colorado.
What can be described as nothing other than luck, or destiny, or whatever you want to call it. Jordan Nix, Dane Farrington, and Robert Herrera all got jobs selling gear at Guitar Center in College Station, TX. Jordan, Robert, and Dane began playing duo and trio shows in College Station and the surrounding areas. After months of playing shows, working, and attending concerts and festivals together, the group decided that they wanted to really invest in their music. The three played their first show as Jordan Nix & The Day Drinkers in September of 2017. Shortly after, Robert White joined the band to complete the group, and finish the sound the band had been looking for. Although, all the members have a very different set of influences and musical background, they come together to create a very unique, bold, Americana based sound they refer to as “Rustic Rock”. The band released their first single in march of 2018 titled ‘Gas Station Flowers’. JNDD is set to release their self titled debut album ‘Happier Than Normal’ in the Fall of 2018.

John Hord has been taking the Texas Country music scene by a storm. Growing up he found influences in almost everything he listened to, from George Strait and Garth Brooks to his very own father, Houston singer Jeff Hord. He spent his younger years singing around campfires and in a church band, and decided to pursue music professionally in early 2016.
You can hear the early traditional country influences and hear the Texas Country influences of Aaron Watson and Cody Johnson as soon as he begins to sing. He’s used these influences to mold his sound, and begin telling stories through his songwriting. Including his first radio single, “Blame It On the Whiskey.”
As he’s continued to grow as an artist, John has followed the paths of his influences and began heavily playing the Texas Country scene. When he’s not playing shows he enjoys spending his time with his family, hunting, fishing, and playing the guitar.
His first single, “Blame It On the Whiskey,” peaked at #33 on the Texas Regional Radio Report and top 40 on the CDXtraction charts.
