RADNEY FOSTER – An Acoustic Evening
Jun 1 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Come enjoy and acoustic evening with twice Grammy-nominated hit Singer/Songwriter/Producer, RADNEY FOSTER, with Special Guest, Drew Womack – Tickets are $30.00 General Admission and $45.00 Reserved Seating, Advanced. – BUY THEM HERE! or $35.00 and $50.00 at the Door on the day of the event.

As a young musician straight out of Texas, RADNEY FOSTER spent the lengthy drives in between tour stops reading the likes of John Steinbeck, Larry McMurtry, and Harper Lee. Over 30 years of artist cuts later, there is no question that he himself is an established storyteller. Whether it’s navigating the ever-changing music industry or battling a sudden, terrifying illness – Foster definitely has a story to tell.

In late Fall 2015, the legendary songwriter got the diagnosis every musician fears– a severe case of pneumonia and laryngitis. However, for someone who’s been producing songs for almost 40 years, the desire to write doesn’t fade along with the voice. During a grueling six week period of vocal constraint, Foster’s creative side emerged in the form of a short story inspired by the song, titled “Sycamore Creek,” and the idea for Foster’s newest endeavor was born.

For You To See The Stars is a project comprised of two parts – a book and a CD. The book is a collection of short stories published by Working Title Farm. Though the stories are fiction, they are informed by Foster’s upbringing on the Mexican border in Del Rio, TX. The story that most closely resembles memoir, “Bridge Club,” is a humorous and poignant retelling of the song “Greatest Show on Earth,” a recollection of playing music with family and friends on the back porch on a Saturday night.

While it’s evident that Texas has always been an inspiration for his music, in For You To See The Stars, Foster explores various landscapes, both physical and emotional, from the story of a retired spy in New Orleans, to the tale of a Dallas lawyer wandering the Rocky Mountains in search of redemption, to a post apocalyptic parable of a world in endless war.

The beauty of this CD/book combo lives within Foster’s extensive imagery, which not only further expands the meaning behind Foster’s songs, but gives the reader a look at the thought process behind his songwriting. “For me, the goal of writing is always to touch that one person so much that they wonder how I got a peek into their living room–how I understood exactly what they felt. More than just rhyming or having a pretty melody, I try to express a part of the human condition that can make someone want to laugh, cry, make love, or all of the above.”

Although the literature can be enjoyed independently, each story is uniquely coupled with a song. The 10-track album, also titled For You To See The Stars, features nine new songs and a special re-recording of “Raining on Sunday,” the song Foster co-wrote with Darrell Brown, which became one of Keith Urban’s top Billboard singles. The album was recorded at the historic Nashville studio Sound Emporium and was produced by award-winning Will Kimbrough, who also plays multiple instruments and sings on the record.

For You To See The Stars is Radney Foster’s eleventh album. Foster has written eight number one hit singles, including his own “Nobody Wins,” and “Crazy Over You” with duo Foster & Lloyd. His discography contains countless cuts by artists ranging anywhere from country (Keith Urban, The Dixie Chicks, Luke Bryan, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band) to contemporary (Marc Broussard, Hootie & The Blowfish, Kenny Loggins, Los Lonely Boys). Although highly recognized and accomplished in the music world, Foster is a true renaissance man. In addition to For You To See The Stars being his first book, Foster recently starred in the world premiere of “Troubadour,” at Atlanta’s Tony Award winning Alliance Theatre.  He also appears in the upcoming feature film, Beauty Mark.

For You To See The Stars is Foster at his classic storytelling best, both as a seasoned singer/songwriter and a soulful writer of prose. Although both components stand alone as separate pieces of art– they are meant to be enjoyed together for a reason. When coupled, the book and CD give fans a deeper insight into the subconscious of Foster’s storytelling. Journalist Peter Cooper puts it best, “Radney Foster writes with uncommon depth of emotion, humor, empathy, and clarity. I’m going to ask him how he does it, and if he tells me I’ll let you in on his secret. Until then, it’s best that we read, wonder, and revel.”


Opening the show for Radney Foster will be the very talented DREW WOMACK.  Drew first hit the national scene with his band, Sons of the Desert out of Waco, TX. Their debut album, Whatever Comes First, spawned several country radio hits including the title track, which charted in the Billboard Top 10. During his time with Sons, Womack was also writing, and collaborating with several of Nashville’s top hit makers. He has written nine, top-10 hits, including Kenny Chesney’s first #1 smash, “She’s Got It All”. He also has collaborations with Peter Frampton, Tim McGraw and with Lee Ann Womack (no relation) on her blockbuster hit, “I Hope You Dance.” Drew has also written songs for Aaron Watson, Pat Green, Joe Diffee and Ty Herndon and he has earned five ASCAP and two BMI awards. In 2003, Womack released his first solo album, which resulted in two top-five singles and an international tour. His newest release, Sunshine To Rain, marks a new musical approach; a retro-modern sound Womack jokingly refers to as “Gangsta Folk.”  The album’s powerful title track is inspired by a woman that Womack encountered at a liquor store – a victim of alcoholism, ironically packing all her belongings into boxes bearing the labels of the very thing that ruined her life in the first place. Grammy nominated songwriter Radney Foster and singer-songwriter Jess Klein add harmonies to this chilling song. “Rescue Me,” looks at being at one’s lowest point and reaching out for someone to pull them out, while “Through the Night” is about trying to get through an incredibly painful moment that feels inescapable.

Tickets are on sale now: $30.00 General Admission and $45.00 Reserved Seating – BUY THEM HERE!

Curtis McMurtry – Singer/Songwriter
Jun 2 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Curtis McMurtry writes songs about villains that believe they are victims. Influenced by Fiona Apple, Billy Strayhorn and Leonard Cohen, Curtis’ music combines sinister lyrics with lush, unconventional arrangements. His first solo album Respectable Enemy  was released in August 2014, and drew comparisons to Calexico and John Fullbright. His sophomore album The Hornet’s Nest was released in February 2017, and continues to garner critical acclaim. Curtis’ music has been featured on NPR’s Weekend Edition, and his song “Wrong Inflection” was included in the soundtrack for comedian Tig Notaro’s Amazon Prime series One Mississippi.

Curtis was born and raised in Austin, Texas and grew up surrounded by local musicians of all genres. Curtis studied music composition and ethnomusicology in college, primarily writing contemporary chamber music for banjo and strings. After graduation, he moved to Nashville to sharpen his songwriting by co-writing with elder statesmen including Fred Koller and Guy Clark.

“Simply put, at 23, McMurtry’s dark and deep debut solo album, Respectable Enemy, marks him as a world-class talent who not just stands on his own merits, but soars on them.” – Thomas Gerbasi, New York Examiner

Curtis performs in The Loft at the Uptown Art House on Saturday, June 2 from 7pm to 10pm – UAH doors open at 1pm – Admission is $5 at the door.

Alex Harvey – Singer/Songwriter
Jun 8 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

You might call him Delta Blues or Country Rock; depending on the song he is singing, but the one consistent thread is definitely “SOUL.” Alex Harvey was born and raised in Delta country, just outside of Memphis, TN. With a multitude of influences such as the Blues his neighbors used to play on their porches, Country his mother loved, Big Band Swing his father favored, splashes of Rock and Roll and Folk and just when you think you’ve got a pot full of gris gris out comes deep, intimate, soulful songs like “RUEBEN JAMES” and “DELTA DAWN.” It’s no wonder he is hard to put into one category.

Alex has been successful throughout the years, selling over 200 million recordings; each song recorded by just as diverse performers as his list of influences. Artists such as Sammy Davis, Jr., Henry Mancini, Andy Williams, Eydie Gorme’, Peggy Lee and Andre Constelanetz have recorded songs of his which were written for film. Other artists like Bette Midler, Tanya Tucker, Billy Ray Cyrus, Jimmy Buffet and many more have been successful in their own careers utilizing one or several of Alex’s songs; Kenny Rogers recorded over 17 of his. Yet, with such songwriting acclaim, his creativity led him in a variety of other avenues. He has earned a Master’s Degree from Murray State University, taught music for two years, which he later exchanged a career in the classroom for the stage. Not long after, he found himself in Los Angeles studying acting with classmates such as Patrick Swayze, Tony Danza, Priscilla Presley and Michelle Pfiffer and soon began accepting roles in film and television; his first role being opposite friend and mentor, James Garner in “The Long Summer of George Adams.” Even with a substantial career in the film industry, this talented artist could not deny the passion that called him home. With a new Christian Music CD, he continues to work hard to be worthy of the ministry it has spawned. Alex sheds light on his next move by saying, “I need to deliver the message…that really moves me. I’m just gonna pray and watch for God’s next opening door.”

Alex Harvey will perform an intimate singer/songwriter evening in The Loft at the Uptown Art House on Friday, June 8 from 7pm-10pm.  Tickets are $5 at the door. UAH doors open at 3pm on Friday.

Chris Taylor – San Antonio Singer/Songwriter
Jun 9 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Chris Taylor is fearless musical and artistic performer from San Antonio, TX. Whether he is solo, with an acoustic guitar and harmonica or with his band (Chris Taylor & The Setting Sons) you can expect a passionate musical experience. “Here’s a guy with a voice reminiscent of Jeff Buckley, whose musical approach should appeal to you if you hate bubblegum and want something with more substance!” Mike Rimmer – CrossRhythms

He has cowritten two songs with Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics fame and has over 30 albums to his credit. His album, Never Ending Now, released through Lo-Fidelity Records in 2016, is a double album featuring some of his best music to date.

Throughout the 90’s, Taylor was the primary writer and visionary for the band Love Coma, which included Matt Slocum (guitar player for Sixpence None The Richer) and they developed quite a cult following across the US. With both his music and visual artwork, Taylor has remained prolific and prominent in releasing new work for his fans.

No two Chris Taylor shows have been the same. Acoustic guitar and harmonica. Electric guitar and amplifier. Chris Taylor paints and sings at the same time, creating something unique right in front of you. The Setting Sons provide the muscle, the psychedelia, the rock and roll rhythm to it all.

San Antonio Singer/Songwriter/Artist CHRIS TAYLOR will be performing his songs in The Loft at the Uptown Art House on Saturday, June 9 from 7pm-10pm.  Come on out and meet this amazing songwriter, hear his songs and the stories behind them.  UAH doors open at 1:00pm.  Admission is $5 at the door.
