The KXT Local Show: Alex O’aiza, Quincy Forte, Court Hoang

Here we are in December already! Make sure you vote for your favorite albums and artists of 2023 before year’s end. Maybe some North Texas artists made your list? This week, I finally got my hands on Grand Prarie artist Alex O’aiza‘s new indie single “TE QUEDAS O TE VAS”, and we got a super jam from Dallas’s Quincy Forte. Plano artist Jeaneth and Mansfield singer/songwriter Austin Kiefer made their local show debuts, and we listened back to songs from country artist Angel White, r&b/pop artist JONAVI, and the punk band Room 13 out of Denton.

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


Alex O’aiza

We caught up with O’aiza when he was a featured artist during Local Music Month this year, and saw him hard at work at his craft. Now, he’s back with his second original Spanish language single, the indie rock “TE QUEDAS O TE VAS.” (And, as a bonus- the song now has a Reggaeton remix!)


Quincy Forte

Forte is no stranger to the DFW music scene – he’s a former member of the band Chasing February and has also played with Ducado Vega and Bloodrich. “Millionaire Dreams” expresses a lot of the frustrations that many of us have when it comes to being able to afford what we want and Forte says the song is his latest venture into the world of pop music.

Court Hoang

Hoang released his album Get Right last year and that is where you’ll find the new single “Monster” that features Taylor Teachout.  Hoang is also a composter, so it’s no surprise that this song feels full and cinematic.
