The KXT Local Show: Alex O’Aiza, Brody Price, Elyse Jewel

This week we heard new music out of Dallas from Elyse Jewel and husband and wife duo Hanging Fire. Fort Worth artists Cody Lynn Boyd and Brodie Price sent in new songs, and we heard Driveway Dive out of Plano. We even heard “Radio Girl” from Dallas artist Steve Dirkx– a song recorded in 1992 and inspired by former KERA DJ Liza Richardson.

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


Alex O’Aiza

Grand Prairie artist O’Aiza is experimenting with more of a rock sound and calls “Heaven” one of his personal favorites in his repertoire.


Brody Price

Price’s debut album, Win A Trip To Palm Springs!, is also the debut release for Niles City Records, the label born out of recording studio Niles City Sound.


Elyse Jewel

The 17 year old singer-songwriter is back with a heartfelt story of unrequited love. Watch for “Friends” on Jewel’s debut EP, dear diary, which is set to release on September 27th.
