The KXT Local Show: Flower Child & Jah Born, Clair Reilly-Roe, Northern National

New songs this week from Flower Child & Jah Born, Northern National, Clair Reilly-Roe, and Ariel & The Culture. We heard country-tinged tracks from Evan Boyer and Dan O’Connell (who both made their Local Show debuts!), a sweet song about trying to forget from The Half Guided Hearts, and a beautiful, haunting new number called “Darker It Grows” from Fort Worth’s Cameron Smith.

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


Flower Child & Jah Born

Two-time Grammy award-winning producer Jah Born has teamed up with Dallas artist Flower Child to form a powerhouse collaboration. Their new EP, Solace, features six magical tracks.


Clair Reilly-Roe

Clair Reilly-Roe says she wrote a bunch of songs over the pandemic and she’s just now starting to release them. ‘Let It Rain” is a smooth track slightly tinged with psychedelic tones.


Northern National

The latest release from Northern National finds the Dallas band headed toward more of an intense sound while keeping steller vocals and production. Check out the lyric video for “Underneath.
