The KXT Local Show: Tears, Gratzi, Glitter

November started off with a flood of new music, and we couldn’t be more thrilled! Tears, Glitter, and Sarah Johnson chimed in from Dallas while Cameron Smith and Lou CharLe$ checked in from Fort Worth. Gratzi sent in “Reasons” from Lewisville and we got another uplifting number from Grand Prarie’s Ellen Once Again. We even had two artist debuts this week – good vibe-loving Dallas band Raging Bunch sent in “Trust Is Love,” and we heard Fort Worth artist (and former middle school teacher)  David Tribble‘s gentle love song “See Her Cry.”

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



Dallas artist Tears is back with another banger! “Diamantes” is the follow-up to her Stitches EP.



Lewisville-based Gratzi sounds larger than life in their new song “Reasons.” Check out the accompanying (awesome) video!



NOBODY MESS WITH GLITTER!!! GLITTER WILL TAKE YOU DOWN!!!  The rockstar-kickboxing video for “Middle” was released on Halloween to keep with the bloody theme of the holiday. Fun Fact:  Glitter is an accomplished martial artist, so she knows what she is doing in the ring!
