Cary Cooper house concert
Tuesday August 14, 2012

We teamed up with Van Shaw, who has another House Concert venue here in Lubbock called Uncle Bill’s Music Barn, to host this concert.  What a great venue!  Van and his wife Leslie have created a musician’s paradise, with a stage, lighting, and professional sound system, as well as a great venue for the audience.

Cary CooperCary Cooper was in top form, and the audience appreciated hearing not only selections from her CDs, but a number of new songs as well.  This concert was planned in conjunction with Cary’s travel to the Rocky Mountain Folk Festival in Lyons, Colorado, and Cary introduced two new songs that she is entering in the prestigious Songwriters contest at the festival.  (I think both have a great shot at winning!)

Thanks for blessing us with a wonderful evening of music and stories, Cary!

Recently cast in the TV show, “Troubadour, TX”, Cary Cooper sings of life from the perspective of a lover, a mother, a daughter and a friend. Her songs will make you laugh, cry, think, and most of all celebrate your place in the world.

In early 2011, Cary was spotted by the producers of Troubadour, TX, a new TV docu-drama that premiered in September 2011 on the CW network. Along with several other Texas songwriters (including her husband, Tom Prasada-Rao), Cary was cast on the show. Part of her appeal is the unique songs she’s been writing on her cute little pineapple ukulele. Cary picked up the uke in the summer of 2010 and it blew open the door to a brand new batch of songs that are featured on her newest CD, “Pink Umbrella”, which was released in the fall of 2011 coinciding with her main stage set at the Kerrville Wine & Music Festival and the debut of Troubadour, TX.

A multi-dimensional artist, Cary brings honesty and clarity to her music, and subsequently to your heart.

Austin’s Wendy Colonna

Wendy Colonna
Wendy Colonna – voted Austin’s “Best Singer Songwriter” (Austin American Statesman)

What an awesome concert!  Wendy Colonna brought keyboardist extraordinaire (and amazing musician in his own right) Dave Madden with her and rocked the house with soulful, bluesy rock!  Some have said this was the best HubCityMusic.com house concert yet!  And it was truly an amazing concert.

A young woman who has decidedly come into her own, the dark-eyed Colonna fills her musical space with a throaty voice, deep-down retro roots and soul. Indeed, Colonna’s seriously strong pipes and songwriting prove that age does foster wisdom and practice does, indeed, make perfect. “My writing is influenced most by songwriters whose work is so nerve-strikingly personal and universally accessible. . . Jackson Browne, Carole King, Marvin Gaye, Randy Newman, Willie Dixon, Leonard Cohen, Ray LaMontagne and countless others. They touch your soul and let you bring your own stories and characters to the music.”

Tori Vasquez with Micah Vasquez
Saturday May 19, 2012

Tori Vasquez returns from EuropeWe were so excited to have Tori Vasquez perform a return engagement for our HubCityMusic.com house concert series!

This concert came right after Tori’s return from a European tour with Blue October.  Their 11-day tour took them through Germany and the United Kingdom, playing in venues ranging from large concert halls to the Hard Tori Vasquez - sights of EuropeRock Cafe.  Tori said the entire trip was so good it was hard to pick a favorite part, but she really enjoyed singing and performing for a different culture half a world away.  And no doubt her audiences enjoyed her just as much as she enjoyed them!  What a great opportunity, and certainly you will see more opportunities of this nature in Tori’s future.

And what an honor that with such exciting opportunities in her life, Tori is still excited about the house concerts she performs for us!  She has been busy writing new songs, and shared some of these new songs with us.  Some of these songs are from her continuing collaboration with Kenny Harris, and some are solo efforts by Tori.

In the space of less than a year since her last HubCityMusic.com house concert, Tori has matured and grown both musically and as a stage presence.  Her stories were as endearing as her songs, and her songs were transfixing!

Here is a video of Tori and Micah from last year’s HubCityMusic.com house concert.  Listen with good speakers if possible! (on a laptop, use headphones or earbuds.)
