Look out your window.

Whether you’re in a Manhattan hi-rise or at a truck stop somewhere off a Midwestern interstate, keep your eyes open. Bart Crow is coming your way.

Always known as “the nice guy” with a smile on his face, the tides are turning and the gloves are coming off. Bart Crow is still the kind of guy and artist fans in the South and Midwest have grown to love. But on his new album The Parade, boundaries disappear and things are getting real.

The road-toughened troubadour and his band have already logged thousands of miles playing 130+ dates a year in front of loyal rowdy crowds at far-flung, late-night clubs and concert halls all over Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas, Nebraska and beyond. It’s his music that draws them — a tangle of roots in blues, country and down-home rock ‘n’ roll, branded with his unique imprint. They hear their lives in his lyrics, written in the tradition of Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle and other true-life troubadours.

With no help from big-time labels, and money pulled from his own pockets, Crow has put together an admirable track record as a recording artist, having lofted six No. 1 singles onto the Texas Music Chart – one of which, “Wear My Ring,” sold over 165,000 copies. He has sold over 40,000 albums, released five self-produced albums in just over a decade, including Dandelion, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Heatseekers South Central chart. He’s been cheered in Country Weekly, on CMT and in other national media outlets. His YouTube videos and concert footage have drawn more than 2.5 million views.

Born and raised in the Texas Hill Country, Jesse Stratton plays a perfect mixture of Americana and Texas country music that is chock-full of truth and raw emotion. From his relevant originals to his energetic cover songs, this multi-talented artist plays his guitar, saxophone, and harmonica at every performance.

Alongside Jesse Stratton are a few of Texas' finest musicians, who are collectively known as the Jesse Stratton Band. Playing percussion in the band is Jesse's good friend, Kenny Martinez. On the bass is the easy-going and thoroughly talented Danny Pitt. Lead guitarist is Austin's own Tony Garossino - guitar instructor by day, rock star by night.

Their new CD 'Where it all began' is a heartfelt compilation of Jesse's original tunes paired with the ultra gripping instrumental stylings of Garossino, Pitt, and Martinez. This album breathes truth into the joys and struggles of everyday life. A musical and lyrical treat for fans and music lovers alike.

Jesse has been playing music since the age of 10. He started with the saxophone, which eventually landed him a scholarship to college for Music composition and Music business. He continues to play and learn an array of different instruments, but has always stuck to writing and performing songs with meaning and inspiration.

The Jesse Stratton Band formed in 2014, originally as a duo - Stratton and Martinez. They eventually added Garossino and Pitt for a fuller and more complete sound. Together, the band creates all the heart and soul live music longs for.
