The KXT Local Show: Abraham Alexander feat. Gary Clark Jr., Jesse Spradlin, Brave Little Howl

This week brought us Abraham Alexander‘s smooth team up with Gary Clark Jr., new rocking tracks from Brave Little Howl out of Dallas and Frisco’s Scout Craft, and the sweet 1950s-tinged tinged “Close My Eyes” from Fort Worth artist Jesse Spradlin. We also checked out “The Silver Isle”- the latest release from Dallas project Paper Cups and revisited The Wee-Beasties‘ “It’s Happening Tonight”.

You can see the entire playlist after this week’s highlights, and if you are an artist from North Texas, submit your music here.

Abraham Alexander Feat. Gary Clark Jr.

Fort Worth’s Alexander teamed up with one of his personal heroes- multi-Grammy award-winning artist Gary Clark Jr.- for his first release on Dualtone Records. “Stay” is a reimagined version of the song Alexander first released in 2019. It’s about how Alexander realized that he didn’t have to go far away to achieve his dreams; he could stay close to home.


Jesse Spradlin

Spradlin wrote her first song after her parents gifted her a guitar for her 13th birthday. Her latest release, “Close My Eyes”,  perfectly captures that feeling of a too-good-to-be-true relationship.


Brave Little Howl

Brave Little Howl was formed by members Marc Atkinson and Billy Hale back in 2015  and has grown to a six-piece ensemble. “Inorganic” is the second release off of the band’s upcoming album “Neola Gold”.
