Parker Ryan

Parker Ryan Vinson grew up in Huntington, TX, a small East Texas town about 30 miles south of Nacogdoches. Parker began playing guitar at the age of eight and started his first band, Loose Gravel,  when he was in high school with some of his good friends. Parker was the lead singer and guitar player for Loose Gravel for several years before moving to Galveston, TX, during his Junior year of high school.  Parker played several bars and small music venues on the island before graduating high school and moving to College Station, TX. 

 

The pandemic caused a pause in Parker’s music career which allowed time for him to focus on song writing. Once venues began to open back up Parker was asked to open for Jordan Nix and Jacob Stelly at The Sweetwater Grill near Dallas. Following that gig Stelly asked Parker to open for him at Southerns in College Station, where he met Ethan Whitaker. Parker and Ethan quickly became friends and Ethan went on to produce Parker’s first two acoustic EP’s, “Talbert Street, Pt. 1,” and “Talbert Street, Pt. 2.” Since then, Parker has been playing venues in Texas such as The Tap in College Station, The Blue Light in Lubbock, Silver Saloon in Terrell, Love and War in Plano and Cheatham Street in San Marcos, opening for artists such as Tanner Usrey, Cameron Sacky Band, Jordan Nix, Dylan Wheeler, and Jacob Stelly.

4 PM - 6 PM

Koby Rowton

 Guitarist/vocalist Koby Rowton has easily written over 100 songs since he began playing guitar and singing at the age of 13. Over the years, the songs have centered around the tough things in life, like the loss of a loved one, getting older, anxiety, and heartbreak. But Rowton also enjoys writing about the good times – making memories with family and friends, love, and good ole storytelling. Once described as “Gulf Coast Dirt” by the Hello Texas Podcast, K.R.B. infuses elements of rock, blues, jazz, folk, and country with influences ranging from John Mayer to Blink 182 to Emmy Lou Harris.

 

His band’s debut E.P. titled “I’m To Blame” was released in the summer of 2021.

Kenny Karr Wood and Steel.jpg

1 PM - 2 PM

Kenny Karr

Born and raised in Texas, Kenny cut his musical teeth on 70's Acoustic Rock, playing bass in a family band called "True Texas" during the mid 80's.
 

After moving to Orlando, Florida, he was invited to audition for the "Kim Hightower Band." Running through some music together, their musical connection was almost immediate, and began performing around central Florida for the next four years. In 2012, Kenny left the band, moved to south Florida, and put together his Americana band "Altered Roots".
In 2019, Kenny ventured out to concentrate more on his solo/duo act, "Wood & Steel." As fate would have it, coming full circle, Kenny moved back to Texas in 2021, and began booking solo/duo shows again as "Wood & Steel." In March of 2021, he began the search for additional musicians who shared his love for "Outlaw Country-Rock and Roots." "Wood & Steel" has hit the road running booking shows around Houston and Southeast Texas.
