The KXT Local Show: Spencer Wilson, MaZing, Nathan Mongol Wells

The end of July finds North Texas musicians bringing the heat to the Local Show! Dallas artist Griffin Holtby sent in the rockin’ “Queen of the Underground.” The song was recorded with John Pedigo at Modern Electric Sound Recorders in Dallas and is loosely based on a woman Holtby dated a few years ago that he says is “a really sexy and really SMART writer.” Arlington synth-pop artist Kevowah made his local show debut with the catchy tune “Your Friend,” and indie-pop duo LemonTech sent in their second release from Dallas.  “Outside The Lines” is the first song the pair wrote together, and they wrote it as a message to themselves from the future. We also heard new songs from Lewisville group Gratzi, pop-punk outfit 11:83 out of Denton, and John Danforth from Farmer’s Branch.

Check out the full playlist after the highlights, and if you are an artist from North Texas, be sure to submit your music here.


Spencer Wilson

The Allen, TX artist dropped his debut single last year, and we’re so glad we got our hands on it! “Roll The Dice” has such a feel-good groove that is perfect to carry us through the rest of the summer!

The solo project from Sonic Selection member MaZing skirts the line between hip-hop and pop. You’ll find “Last Dance” on MaZing’s new EP2 album.

Wells is the lead singer of Dallas band The Ottoman Turks and is gearing up for the release of his solo album, From A Dark Corner. “In Years” showcases Wells’ stellar songwriting by taking a bittersweet look back at the past
