  • The Bridge House from Kingsville Canada. Music with various artists from a variety of genres displaying their talent.

  • Though Mandy Rowden started playing violin at 6 and piano at 7, she didn’t discover her songwriting talents until she was 21 — a few years after she finally unlocked a long-forbidden door to rock ‘n’ roll and had a chance to explore its oh-so-delicious temptations. Until then, her musical diet had been limited to gospel and classical, the only sounds allowed in her East Texas family’s fundamentalist Baptist household, where she was home-schooled through eighth grade. Rowden picked up a guitar in high school, and was introduced to Americana while studying English and Film at Southwest Texas State University (now Texas State). That led her to, as she puts it, “quit the classical scene,” and find her own voice. And what a voice it is, both lyrically and literally. Rowden possesses gorgeously nuanced vocals, which she wraps easily around verses baring emotions at once intensely personal and fully relatable. “Like most chick songwriters, I’ve been guilty of writing heavily about my thoughts and feelings on relationships,” she admits. “And my response is, ‘Screw it, it’s what I’m feeling, so it’s what I’ll write!’ Love and love lost are some seriously universal topics, so I don’t see them going out of style any time soon.” She certainly has a point — and makes it to great effect on her new album, Live from Opa!, recorded at one of her favorite Austin coffeehouses, and an earlier EP, Big Moon. And it’s not likely anyone’s going to quibble with lyrics like these, from “Breaks,” on Better Angels, a recording she and fellow singer-songwriter Billy Abel made before heading out on a summer 2013 tour. In a sure, yet slightly repentant voice, she sings, I’ve been reckless and I’ve been wild. I’ve melted like a candle and wept like a child. Lookin’ forward to a lifetime of things that never are, but the joy and the pain and a whole lot of scars. Nothin’ seems real when it doesn’t leave a mark, but it breaks my heart. Make no mistake, though: Rowden is hardly just another “chick songwriter.” She’s funny as heck, first off, and versatile enough to play an ever-expanding list of instruments that now includes piano, fiddle, mandolin, bass, harmonica, drums, ukulele, and banjo. (And according to one Texas critic, “When she plays the fiddle, hearts melt.”) She’s gone skydiving. And participates in triathalons. She has a cat named Lucy. And once sold all of her possessions and moved to New York. Eventually, she came back, as Texans always do. She’s tall. And she’s given up trying to pretend she’s not. In fact, Rowden isn’t the kind of person who’s likely to pretend about much — not with a “day job” that involves teaching women to become confident performers in six weeks. Rowden is the founder of Girl Guitar, which offers musical workshops for women. Whether fulfilling long-held fantasies or seeking serious career training, women attending Girl Guitar build up their chops and perform at a group-showcase finale. Seven years after Rowden launched it, Girl Guitar conducts about 22 sessions a week, including songwriting, and students report having the time of their lives. Of course, that takes honesty — not to mention diplomacy and more than a little psychology. Plus wine. But another reason for Girl Guitar’s success is Rowden’s continued dedication to her own career; she gigs regularly, solo or with Abel. She also performs in Cover Girl (yes, it’s an all-female cover band, and loads of fun), and in a weekly show called Whiskey Church, and has been known to show up alongside acclaimed singer-songwriter Sam Baker and up-and-comers Jessie Torrisi & the Please Please Me. “I’ve gone head-first into everything from the Beatles, Stones, Zep and Bowie to White Stripes to old-school country to hip-hop and everything in between,” Rowden says. She’s played in all sorts of configurations, including the Gringo All-Stars, the Cash Band (as June Carter Cash), Blackwater Gospel, The Buddy Quaid Band, and the Whiskey Tango Family Band. Clearly, she tends to follow her instincts and passions; that’s her approach with songwriting, too. Rowden’s work contains both vulnerability and determination; it comes from a woman who’s had her share of heartbreak but knows ecstasy, too. But regardless of whether she’s expressing pain or joy (or the occasional zinger punchline), for Rowden, it all boils down to one essential point. “I just love playing,” she says simply. “As long as my hands and voice work and my car gets me places, I just want to keep entertaining people, and if something I write or say influences someone positively, then bonus!” With her talents and energy, it’s safe to say she’s scored that bonus many times over.

Tom has performed at a wide variety of venues, including concerts and festivals, restaurants and schools, civic events and nursing homes, and even dude ranches and the Royal Gorge Bridge. His versatility also is seen in an impressive repertoire of some 2,500 songs. Styles include jazz standards, western, folk, classic rock, R&B, children's and rare historic songs, plus originals. Tom finds the heart of each song and performs with a love of music and respect for his audience, whether it be in a concert setting or for his weekly work with Alzheimer's patients. Tom has released 8 CDs: "Tribute," featuring classic jazz standards in a tribute to his father; "Signature," "Profile" and "Down to Earth," featuring an eclectic mix of favorites from the 20 years of playing; "Christmas," a collection of holiday songs; and a retrospective colonial music CD for the Zebulon Pike Bicentennial featuring a collaboration with Don Richmond and Rex Rideout titled "A Voyage of Such Nature," “Cowboy Americana,” featuring favorite cowboy & American songs. His latest album is “Songwriter,” a collection of all-new original tunes written in just the last two years. Tom spent much of his life in New Mexico where he acquired an ear for both Southwest music and Texas two-step. He melded these musical loves with his formal education in music from the University of Nebraska. In Pueblo Tom stretched his musical talents into the realm of producing concerts by bringing in nationally renowned folk artists. Recently Tom has been the musical director for the “Song of Pueblo” oratorio, a musical & visual history of Pueblo, Colorado, & he was featured on CBS-4 TV Denver’s “Colorado Getaways” singing on a mountain pass among the bristlecone pines. Tom's strength lies in his ability to adapt to any venue and audience. He can croon with the best or bring the audience to its feet with a toe tapper, all the while with a smile and a genuine affection for the music.
