The Grahams
The Grahams
Childhood friends turned husband and wife with a passion for music, The Grahams are an Americana music duo with a lot of flavor. Over the last year they have toured across the US and joined some great acts such as Ray Wylie Hubbard, John Fullbright, The Wood Brothers, Parker Millsap, Leon Russell and others.

In 2016 The Grahams recorded and released a deluxe version of their latest album Glory Bound, which was produced by David Garza and spent 14 weeks in the top 40 of the AMA charts. The album was inspired by Woody Guthrie, Alyssa explains "the song 'Farmer Labor Train' kept sticking in our minds, so we wanted to write a song about trains. We wrote 'Glory Bound,' then decided that we really wanted to ride the trains in honor of Guthrie, Lead Belly and other old folk legends who used the train system to bring voices together."

A short documentary founded in that idea was directed and produced by Cody Dickinson. Rattle the Hocks will have a debut screening at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on July 9th in conjunction with a live performance by The Grahams. The duo will record a new album this Fall for 2017 release and plan to tour as well throughout the Fall and Winter.

It’s a quiet confidence, an air of authority limited to only the most studied artists, a commanding irreverence woven with a thread of vulnerability. There’s something inexplicably authentic about Oklahoma’s Travis Linville, and it’s carried him from dive bars and classrooms to “The Tonight Show” and esteemed theaters and festivals across the globe.

Linville is legendary regionally for his work in the now-defunct Burtschi Brothers and for his behind-the-scenes influence—including producing John Fullbright’s first album and teaching guitar lessons to a then nine-year-old Parker Millsap. The “Oklahoma Gazette” rightly called him a “godfather of modern Oklahoma folk” and noted that his success opened doors for a state teeming with talent: a mentor and contemporary for other Oklahoma acts like Fullbright, Millsap, Turnpike Troubadours and John Moreland.

His acclaimed solo releases include 2012’s “Sun or Moon” and 2014’s “Out on the Wire” EP, called “rich, soulful and beautiful” by Jimmy LaFave. A live audition of a track from the latter even netted him a role in a William H. Macy film, in which he performed the song. A gifted instrumentalist, Linville is also known for his work as a sideman with Texas songwriter Hayes Carll, who calls him “criminally underrated.” He’s also performed with Willie Nelson, Tommy Allsup and Ryan Bingham and shared billing with Merle Haggard, Other Lives and Billy Joe Shaver, among countless others.
