7:30 doors / 8:00 Show
My buddy Radney Foster will be joining me for two sets of songs and stories (of which some may be true).
These all acoustic shows happen in my studio in East Austin.
Limited to 30 reservations, they’re more like a house concert than a regular show.
But they’re at my place.
Special guests are known to show up and play as well.
Sign up on my email list for first shot at reservations.
Join us at The Pershing for a taping of “Who Said You Could Do That?” with special guest Harmoni Kelly.
“Who Said You Could Do That?” is a series of taped interviews with artists, musicians, and people with strange jobs, about what they do, why they do it, and how they got where they are today.
Tickets and Info TBA
Harmoni Kelley is a nationally touring bassist and vocalist from Austin, Texas, currently on tour with country music superstar, Kenny Chesney. A self-taught musician, Harmoni picked up the bass guitar at age 17 and hasn’t looked back. With over two decades of experience both on the road and in the studio, she has mastered the art of playing by ear and understands the importance of being able to lay back, listen and play for the song.
During her time as a young musician in Austin, Harmoni worked her way up through the ranks and spent time both in the studio and on the road with local legends Fastball, James McMurtry, Slaid Cleaves and Bob Schneider to name a few. Those years proved to be the most important in starting Harmoni down the path of honing in on her craft as a bass player and vocalist. She cut her teeth with bands of all musical genres from rock, pop, blues, funk, bluegrass, country and americana.
In 2013, Harmoni had the opportunity to make the move to Nashville, TN and jumped at the chance. During her stint in music city, she toured with Hank Williams, Jr., Radney Foster, Bonnie Bishop, Holly Williams and Louise Mandrell. All of her time spent networking and gigging around Nashville would eventually culminate with her call to audition for Kenny Chesney in 2014.
Harmoni currently splits time between her hometown of Austin, TX and Nashville, TN. When she’s not on the road with Chesney, she continues to tour and do session work with various artists around the country.

Sorry folks. This show has been cancelled.
Writing a song with somebody connects you like glue.
You sit in a room and spill your soul, tell each other secrets that you can’t, or won’t, confess in any other setting.
You find the poetry that hangs around the edges of a life,
Sing about the beauty, the darkness, what’s lost and found.
Together, you put it all into a rhyme, a melody,
Sing it a couple of times, make a recording.
It might be that no one ever hears it, might turn out to be a hit.
Regardless, at the end of the day, you have something that wasn’t there before, something you couldn’t have made without each other.
There’s a connection that comes from doing this.
The song may not last, but that link does.
I’m grateful to have had the chance to write with both of these gents, Radney Foster and Jack Ingram.
The songs are usually pretty good, but the hang is relentlessly fantastic.
