Fall is finally here! New releases and tours in Texas – we have some of the best of the month of November rounded up here for you in this month’s #TexasTunes.
Multi-platinum alt-pop band Echosmith will be bringing their Fall headline tour to Austin, TX, on 11/3 at The Parish. The band kicked off a new era with their single “Hang Around” and also released a brand new, reimagined version of their triple-platinum hit “Cool Kids.”
Multi-platinum alt-pop trio Echosmith’s stardom skyrocketed as they came of age together as both a family and a band. Siblings Sydney, Noah, and Graham Sierota cemented themselves as an inescapable presence in music and pop culture with their triple-platinum hit “Cool Kids” and their double-platinum single “Bright” as their full-length debut, Talking Dreams, went gold.
#2 Sara Kays
RIAA gold-certified singer-songwriter SARA KAYS is about to hit the road as special guest on MAX’s North American headline tour, stopping in Austin to play Empire on Wednesday, 11/9.

On his 30th birthday, GRAMMY Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician Billy Strings announced Me/And/Dad, the first album he’s recorded with his father, Terry Barber, will be released Nov. 18 via Rounder Records.
The product of a longtime dream, the record features new versions of fourteen bluegrass and country classics that the two have been playing together since Strings was a young child. Watch the official video for “Long Journey Home,” directed by Roger Pistole and Scott Mele, HERE.
