The Local Show with Amy Miller — Jan. 4, 2018

Thursday, January 4, 2017
A note from the host:

 
Happy New Year! I decided to kick off the first show of the year with a ton of new local music — and a few from the archives. Highlights from the show this week include a great artist out of Ft. Worth named Matthew McNeal, who just finished recording a new album down at Israel Nash’s recording studio in Dripping Springs, Texas. The song “Gotta Get To You” is a standout track on his forthcoming album, Good Luck.

If you’ve been living in north Texas for a while now, you might remember a band called Farstar. Well, they’ll be reuniting in 2018 to celebrate the 15th anniversary of their album Broken Down and Wandering. I started the show this week with a song from the album titled “Welcome to the Show,” and if you want to check out the full album, here’s a link to stream it:

If you’re looking for something to fit the mood of the season, check out The High Moons. This week I played a gorgeous tune from the band called “Mary’s Garden.” Here’s some video footage of the band performing the song live for Sofar Dallas-Fort Worth:
