These 3 musical artists from Texas are quickly becoming rising stars

On Sunday afternoons, from 5-7 p.m., KLAQ brings you two hours of the latest national rock releases and we shine on great local (and regional) rock from El Paso and the Borderland area. We call this 2 hour block: Q Connected.

After this week we will have to take ANOTHER 2 week break, thanks to the Cowboys airing on air. It’s not football, but we’ll bring the sound of Texas to whatever this week’s show.

Especially from Far West TX: I’m talking about El Paso! American clearance sale, fools like me, tragic landing, a new song from Sparta (their new self-titled album is out in October) and many other great local bands.

We have a lot more Texas rock: Giovannie and the mercenariesthe band from Stephenville TX who scored a HUGE hit with “Ramon Ayala“, without the help of a label. Now… THEY ARE signed to a major label and we will hear from them again this week.

Koe Wetzel from far east Texas, another country rock artist, is rapidly gaining popularity following the release of his new album “Hell Paso.” And yes, this album WAS recorded at Sonic Ranch. (You can see more albums recorded in El Paso HERE).

Nothing More released the following single from Tired of Winning, which is part of their upcoming album, Spirits, released on October 14. If you want to hear more great Texas bands, you can see plenty more here.

If you’re an artist from El Paso, TX, or within 200 miles of El Paso, you can submit your tracks for the NEXT Q Connected here or email me at [email protected] com

Join me for Q Connected, Sunday 5-7pm at 95.5
