About the Event

Hardened and Tempered:

Hard enough to hold an edge; soft enough not to break,  Austin, Texas duo Kristin Davidson and Carolyn Phillips live that  balance and express it in their music. Their songs take root in the  story-telling traditions of folk and country and flourish with textured  harmonies, revealing an intimate look at the human condition and one’s  search for meaning.

“Hardened and Tempered gently conjure wanderlust in the wide-open western spaces of cowboy mythology” — NPR

Emily Shirley:

Emily Shirley’s brand of thoughtful songwriter pop/rock is as finely  tuned and brightly colored as the graphic design projects she works on  for her day gig.  Her latest release, Courage Up, is a  genre-bending hybrid of indie-pop melodies woven over thoughtful, grounded lyrics. The 2018 follow up to 2015’s Duotone album continues Shirley’s presence as a vibrant writer who has come into her own in the Austin, Texas scene.
