Union Specific:
Their work is largely a collision of three influences: the reckless abandon of the early days of Rock and Roll (The Supremes, The Beach Boys), the roots and soul of some of the early progressives (The Band, Neil young, Graham Parsons) and the thoughtfulness of indie sup pop contemporaries (Elliott Smith, Jeff Tweedy) . The band has managed to mold this into cohesive live sound that is fast paced and energetic yet thoughtful, complete with three part harmonies.

To give credence to how hard they work, the group has adopted the slogan, Building Americana, a play on the Union Pacific railroad’s slogan. The band’s hard work has paid off for them, especially considering their relatively short existence. They have developed a following in some of Austin’s most esteemed venues. We can’t wait to celebrate their latest album at Empire – see you there!
