"...On Nov. 2, Savannah Welch had been enjoying an idyllic afternoon in Wimberley..."
"...Let’s not forget what readers of the Chronicle have discovered: Jon Dee Graham’s son William has become a force of nature as a musician and a writer. Kevin and Dustin Welch have their own special thing going on...."
"...Savannah Welch sang in public on Monday for the first time since losing her leg in a freak accident last month. The singer-songwriter appeared at Monkey Nest Coffee for the monthly song circle/jam organized by photo shaman Todd V..."
"...On an evening filled with historical performances, the emotional core of the 35th annual Austin Music Awards show occurred early. As the “Femmes for SIMS” peaked in the first music set, country sirens the Trishas took the stage with Savannah Welch carefully steadying herself on a new prosthetic leg as Liz Foster led a soulful reprise of “Rise Above.”..."
"...Saturday at the 101-year-old Paramount Theatre, Terry Allen, Jo Harvey Allen, and their sons Bukka and Bale – plus at least one grandkid – held court like The Last Waltz. Lloyd Maines on guitar, Joe Ely gunning “Gimme a Ride to Heaven Boy,” Savannah Welch’s halo … Three hours never felt so monumentally Lone Star...."
"...Kevin Welch released his self-titled debut in 1990, alt.country before alt.country was cool. The Oklahoman singer-songwriter explores the human condition in a low-key manner that recalls Guy Clark, and his songs have been covered by Waylon Jennings, Roger Miller, Trisha Yearwood, Ricky Skaggs, and the Highwaymen...."
"...Thirteen young Austin gals choired up first encore “Thought I’d Let You Know,” McCaughey pounding dissonance on a grand piano and Buck sitting on the drum riser wringing climbing shrieks from his instrument as the girls wafted a ghostly chorus, “We’re alone/ We’re not alone.” Dedicated to both Savannah Welch and today’s BookPeople mega guest Bruce Springsteen (“who was kind enough to let me sing this with him once in Houston”), third oldie “Always a Friend” ended the performance save for a redo of “Beauty and the Buzz.” Alejandro Escovedo, 65, can live anywhere he wants, but his guitars ring loudest here...."
"...Directed by: Huck Botko and Andrew Gurland. Starring: Matt Bennett, Zack Pearlman, Jacob Davich, Justin Kline, Krysta Rodriguez, Nicole Weaver, Harry Zittel and Savannah Welch..."
"...8pm, Opal Divine's Freehouse Austin's Trishas stand on the verge of great things. Jamie Wilson, Liz Foster, Kelley Mickwee, and Savannah Welch came together during a tribute to songwriter Kevin Welch, Savannah's father, in 2009..."
"...The two bands tread similar musical paths: occasionally rambunctious Texas country laced with gospel, a hint of soul, and not a note out of place. The main difference in favor of the Trishas – Savannah Welch, Kelley Mickwee, Liz Foster, and Jamie Wilson – is the ability of the local quartet to blend their voices into an wondrous whole..."
"...Little surprise, then, that their debut LP arrives with a preternatural polish and poise. While attention on the four-part harmonies of Jamie Wilson, Liz Foster, Kelley Mickwee, and Savannah Welch remains front and center, it's the songwriting on High, Wide & Handsome that suggests a rarer cumulative talent..."
"...As usual, we're proud to organize a gathering of Austin female talent – especially given the auspicious start to 2017. Our Femmes for SIMS set arrives built around Americana gospel inspirations the Trishas, featuring adversity angel Savannah Welch, and stacked by country queen Kelly Willis, Heartless Bastards powerhouse Erika Wennerstrom, local Thievery Corporation enchantress LouLou, who performs around town in Night Glitter, former Go-Go's bassist Kathy Valentine's blooming gal rockers the Bluebonnets, and finally a showdown between two of Austin's most flammable guitarists: Carolyn Wonderland and Jackie Venson...."
"...Through the generosity of some really beautiful people, we’re at the Belmont Hotel in Oak Cliff. Do you know Savannah Welch? She’s Kevin Welch’s daughter..."
"...Blending psychological drama and documentary-style filmmaking, the film creates a portrait of contemporary artist Billy Bates, who is played by James Wirt. Savannah Welch (Boyhood, Tree of Life, and part of the popular Southern band the Trishas) co-stars..."
"...Austin's music circles expand as much generationally as they do stylistically, and the applause for Warren Hood (Best String Player) and Emily Gimble (Best Keyboards) proved the respect for familial talent. As did the reception for the Trishas, the stunning female quartet of Jamie Wilson, Liz Foster, Kelley Mickwee, and Savannah Welch, laying harmonies across "Mother of Invention" and accompanied in perfect counter by special guest Raul Malo on "A Far Cry From You."..."
"...Graham blogs for this paper when he's not woodshedding; and Bukka and Bale Allen are Renaissance men, just like their dad. Pile on top of that the musical family legacy of Kevin, Dustin, and Savannah Welch, plus Willy, Cody, Micky, and Gary Braun of both Reckless Kelly and Micky & the Motor Cars, and the only question remaining goes out to the latter siblings: Braun brothers, where's your dad, Muzzie?..."
"...Natalie Maines makes the pitch-perfect reference point for the Trishas, four lustrous roots harmonizers whose 2012 debut full-length, High, Wide & Handsome, put them on the map locally while positioning them nationally. In Jamie Wilson, Liz Foster, Kelley Mickwee, and Savannah Welch blooms more than a little Dixie Chicks, and like their outlaw predecessors, the Trishas straddle our town's yesterday and today: partly imported, partly homegrown, entirely Austin..."
"...12mid, Momo's When Jamie Wilson, Liz Foster, Kelley Mickwee, and Savannah Welch sing, people take notice. It's not only the blending of their voices that makes the Austin quartet stand out..."
"...It was only the beginning of a yearlong journey for Candler, producer and Storie Productions co-partner Stacy Schoolfield, and a thoroughly nontraditional route to distribution. But that afternoon, with Candler onstage fielding questions – stories, actually – from an emotionally riveted audience, many of whom had tales similar to that of the film's storyline about the repercussions of a mother's (Anne Nabors) suicide on a quartet of tight-knit teenage friends (Bryan Chafin, Glen Powell Jr., Savannah Welch, Katie Lemon), the standard festival Q&A model was seemingly usurped by attendees needing to tell their own stories...."
"...D: Kat Candler; with Bryan Chafin, Glen Powell Jr., Savannah Welch, Katie Lemon, Michael Emerson, Anne Nabors, Rhett Wilkins..."
