"...ATX6 today announced its new group of rising Austin musicians that will represent our fair city at North By Northeast (NXNE) and other international festivals this year. The six locals selected are Gina Chavez, Jonathan Terrell, Elsa Cross, Silas Lowe, Jana Horn, and Brian Kremer...."
"...Nothing says “Welcome freaks to another 365 days of weirdness” like superhero Japanese spazz rock. Except maybe the Dead Music Capital Band, Austin’s zombilicious horn ensemble that never met a genre – from heavy metal to show tunes – they couldn’t turn into a brass fantasy..."
"...Plus, their pedal steel sustained for reassembled Nineties act Knife in the Water, which churned Galaxie 500-like slowcore into organic mantras. Founder Aaron Blount granted each soft phrase deliberate landing space, emphasized in sighing echo by local songwriter Jana Horn...."
"...Free Week: Sailor Poon Catch these sailors with Big Bill, Geranium Drive, Obscured by Echoes, and Jana Horn. Tue., Jan..."
"...Anchored by Blount's sleepy vocals and guitars, the twang of McCullough's pedal steel, bass from Vince Delgado, Matt Strmiska on drums, and vocals from Shelley McCann (replaced by Jana Horn in the current live incarnation), Reproduction picks up where Knife in the Water left off. More or less..."
"...The bill of Austinites then played to a sold-out house. After the concert, Jesse Moore describes it as the “most attentive audience any of us have ever played to.”“Their confidence quadruples in the course of one year,” Brecht says of past ATX6 performers, which continued last year with Jonathan Terrell, Gina Chavez, Elsa Cross, Silas Lowe, Jana Horn, and Brian Kremer..."
"...Behold the ATX6: crooner Brian Kremer, Reservations leader Jana Horn, folksinger Silas Lowe, Americana songstress Elsa Cross, Not in the Face frontman Jonathan Terrell, and spicy folk-pop singer Gina Chavez. Think of the group as international ambassadors of Austin music..."
"...This anthology of six personal essays (by writers Jay Hardwig, Bryan Mealer, Kate X Messer, Turk Pipkin, Wendell Smith, and Marion Winik), art (by Penny Van Horn), and colorful photo essay (by Jana Birchum) simply tells stories about a land we find intriguing. This is not intended to be a comprehensive travel guide to the 31 states of Mexico..."
"...But the timing of Joseph's latest claims proved disastrous for the camp. The summer of 2004 was a particularly tricky time for the state's foster-care regulators with the Department of Family and Protective Services, which was facing a political onslaught initiated in late 2003 by then-Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn..."
"...But then, how would they know, when de Blois never touted her accomplishments? "On a subconscious level we just got this real strong message from her that you can be competent, completely professional and brilliant about what you do, but you don't have to be a big blowhard about it," said Little. "She never tooted her own horn – never, ever, ever."..."
"...11pm, Opal Divine's Ska in pearls and high heels? 1960s swing with a reggae beat? This trio of bright voices from Spain, backed by an eightpiece band with a blow-your-hair-dry horn section, makes its cocktail of sound not too sweet, not too earthbound. Island music meets soul and girl-group bebop..."
"...Denise Woodard, Marc Savlov, Dan Hardick, Scott Bowles, Keith Sharp, Cynthia Waide, Stacey Kopfler, Nisa Sharma, Rob Faubion, Laurie Powers, Barbara Maltese, Judy Kegg, Sheryl Divin, Jeff Ericsson, Brian Carr, Vicki Matthewes, Les Ross, Maggie Whitley, Schonna Manning, Cassidy Frazier, Thomas Vecera, Sandy Martinez, Abel Vidaurri, Tom Reavley, Ryan Dunn, David Bain, Serena Horn, Scott Austin, Marc Schmid, Jason Johnson, Felton Frueh, Jim Felkner, Cheryl Gutierrez, Jessica Nesbitt, Amy Webster, Mindy Messinger..."
