Every Sunday, we host the Nightowls – Austin's own 10-piece soul band that was recently named one of the "Best New Bands of the Year" by Austin Chronicle and the Austin Music Awards. They play a unique blend of vintage and modern soul music that results in a high-energy, foot-stomping performance.
The band released their debut, 'Good As Gold,' in 2014 to widespread critical acclaim. The Austin Chronicle hailed it as "suave, energetic, blue-eyed soul" and named it one of the Top 10 of the year at the annual Austin Chronicle Music Awards, Austin Monthly named them a Band To Watch, and Texas Music Magazine called the album "a smooth addictive blend of pop, R&B and funk that will delight the band's dance-happy fans." They spent the next year bringing their ecstatic live show to stages around the country, including a triumphant hometown gig at the Austin City Limits Festival, and followed it up with a four song EP ('Good As Gold B-Sides') and a vinyl re-release of the album due to popular demand.
In their last recording at the historic FAME Studio located in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, the band was able to tap into the spirits of the soul greats that walked those floors before them, and at the same time, create their own entry into the room's storied legacy. With the best album of their career under their belts, they’re back in Austin and ready to energize your Sunday afternoons in the backyard of Icenhauer’s.
