Patrice Pike burst onto the music scene as the electric front woman for the seminal Austin jam band Sister Seven. She was honing her creativity as a vocalist and songwriter at Booker T. Washington School for performing and visual arts as well as the legendary music programs at the University of North Texas when she realized all of her mentors were graduating from programs and then trying to make a living on stage and in the studio. She left her entrepreneurial scholarship in the school bank account and started Little Sister which soon became Sister Seven. Soon after, she co-wrote and sang Sister Sevens top 10 Billboard hit Know What You Mean. Richard Skanse for Rolling Stone called her “Tina Turner, Bessie Smith, Janis Joplin, and Robert Plant all rolled up into a tiny but explosive package.” The legendary John Fogerty commented about Patrice’s great voice also in Rolling Stone and Billboard Magazine has called her, One of the finest up-and-coming contemporary Rock Singers in America.
Dallas-based Plunk Murray is five friends that love music and are bound together by it and by the belief that Celtic music is not limited by any specific region, but it’s in the hearts of those who love it. Plunk Murray brings an exciting mix of traditional and modern, Celtic tunes, along with a number of “not-so-Celtic” tunes. Their high energy shows have made them a favorite at festivals, concerts, private parties, and pubs across Texas and Oklahoma. They have been affectionately described as a drinking club with a Celtic music problem.
After 18 years in the “Texas Music Scene” and playing shows predominantly in Fort Worth and its surrounding areas, Phil Wallace has proven himself to be a real Troubador, a young gun with an old soul.
Phil began playing the Stockyards Opry, The Texas All-Star Revue, Johnny High’s, and The Fort Worth Songwriters Association, who later revoked Phil’s membership due to his age. This nearly sent him back off the deep end. Phil began listening to “The Rat Pack” every Monday night at The White Elephant Saloon.
“They were the roots that held the Fort Worth Music Scene together back in those days, Kurt South, Jordan Mycoskie, and Phil Pritchett,” says Wallace. “I was absolutely drawn to what they did on stage, they didn’t care what people thought about their songs, they just did it and it was good.”
This got the wheels turning in Wallace’s head and he began writing more and more, not so much focusing on what people wanted to hear but more on what he wanted to say. “I just wrote about what I knew, some people didn’t believe a fifteen-year-old kid knew what I knew. It was hard to be taken seriously, singing about drugs and pain.”
Hailed as a “Renaissance woman of Austin, Texas” by the New York Times, Patricia Vonne has claimed many titles in her illustrious career: singer, songwriter, actress, activist, and award-winning filmmaker. The three-time Austin Music Award winner is back with her eighth album, My Favorite Holiday, on her own Bandolera Records that features an all-star cast including Rubén Blades, David Grissom, Rosie Flores, Stephen Ferron (Tom Petty), Carmine Rojas (David Bowie), Thommy Price (Billy Idol) and more. Vonne continues her trailblazing ride along the borderland where Castillian and Mexican infusions of flamenco and fiery gypsy guitar meet all-American rock ‘n’ roll. Vonne has toured internationally including the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, World Expo in Japan, John F. Kennedy Center, Grand Ole Opry, and United Nations Headquarters in New York City. She has shared the stage with Chris Isaak, Los Lobos, Raul Malo, and she has collaborated with Texas musical heavyweights, such as Charlie Sexton, Alejandro Escovedo, Joe Ely, Rosie Flores, Doyle Bramhall, and Flaco Jimenez. Vonne toured as a member of “Tito and Tarantula,” the band featured in the Tarantino/Rodriguez film From Dusk Till Dawn.
Vonne has appeared on the big screen in Spykids, Desperado, Machete Kills, Four Rooms, and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, where she reprised her role as Dallas/Zorro Girl; the role which has made her a cult figure among indie and fantasy film fans. Her song “Traeme Paz” was featured in the film Once Upon a Time in Mexico.
According to the Austin American Statesman, “a Tex-Mex spitfire with a rock ‘n’ roll heart, this San Antonio native plays a border-crossing, bilingual mix of flamenco flamboyance and down-in-the-mud exuberance that’s a Lone Star original.”

Patrick is a Texas born writer who has been traveling all over the U.S. for years learning, growing, and experiencing all that he can. He enjoyed walking roads, kayaking rivers, hopping trains, climbing mountains, trying foods, and meeting folks from all over. He was given a guitar while on the road, and began writing songs. It has since kept him full, happy, comforted and free. He admires the life it has given him, and I hopes that in some way, you will enjoy it as well. He always likes to say that, “I may never make a lot of money at this thing, but I’m sure making one hell-of-a living at it.”
