An evening with Chris Pierce at The Post at River East.
Seating is very limited. Tables must be purchased in advance. No tables will be sold at the door. CHRIS PIERCE recently gained national prominence in 2021 with his acoustic version of "No One" from the hit ABC television series "A Million Little Things". Also, his hit co-write "We Can Always Come Back to This" which aired on multiple episodes of the NBC primetime series ‘THIS IS US’, then went on to peak at #1 on the Billboard Blues Chart, #12 on iTunes Top 100, and garner nominations for "Best Song/Recording Created for Television” from The Guild of Music Supervisors and The Jerry Goldsmith Awards. Pierce’s collaboration with artist Sunny War in Americana duo WAR & PIERCE yielded the hit single “Amen”. “ Amen” was featured on NPR’s WORLD CAFE, aired on 250 AAA / NonComm stations and has racked up over 2 million spins on Spotify. Chris Pierce has now impacted many of the same strong influencers with his new album AMERICAN SILENCE in 2021 with glowing reviews from NPR Music, No Depression, Rolling Stone, Acoustic Guitar, Sirius XM and many more.
At age 15, Pierce developed a rare hearing disorder called Otosclerosis that led to the loss of hearing in one ear and partial deafness in the other, a setback that would deter many young musicians forever. The reality, however, fueled Chris’ passion and determination all the more, forcing him to re-learn almost everything he had known prior to his condition. To Chris, music was, and still is, an unconditional companion. Chris has done multiple headlining tours and has also performed on stage with or opened worldwide tours for: Seal, Cold War Kids, B.B. King, Al Green, Sara Bareilles, Rodrigo y Gabriella, Jill Scott, Toots and the Maytals, Colbie Caillat, Buddy Guy, Keb’Mo’, Blind Boys of Alabama, Aaron Neville, Jamie Cullum and others. His voice and music have been heard in film and television shows including: A Million Little Things, This is Us, True Blood, Soundtrack, Crash, Rosewood, Soul Men, Brothers & Sisters, Single Ladies, Eli Stone, In Plain Sight, Dawson's Creek, Army Wives, as well as in national ad campaigns. He also guest appears on a wide range of album recordings as a vocalist, harmonicist and guitarist. chrispierce.com... See MoreSee Less

Seating is very limited. Tables must be purchased in advance. No tables will be sold at the door. Dana Cooper is a poetic songwriter, an insightful storyteller, and a rousing musician whose performances engage and inspire audiences around the world. Cooper’s mixture of flat-picking, finger-picking and percussive strumming style is legend among other guitarists. An expressive singer, his voice is ageless, evoking a rich lifetime of experience. Fellow singer songwriter Buzz Holland says “Cooper is a person who can sing like an angel and play like the devil."
Dana has performed on Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage and the Kerrville Folk Festival where he was nominated for their Hall of Fame. Cooper is the recipient of the 2014 Heritage Musician Award from Pilgrim Center for the Arts in Kansas City, MO, and the 2015 Spirit of Folk Award by Folk Alliance International.
His songs have been recorded by luminary artists such as Claire Lynch, Maura O’Connell, Pierce Pettis, Jonell Mosser, Christine Albert, Trout Fishing in America, Jeannie Burns, and Susan Werner.
He is an integral figure in the Music City songwriting community collaborating with renowned writers including Tom Kimmel, Sally Barris, Kim Carnes, Don Henry, and Kim Richey. Cooper has been invited to participate in songwriting workshops from Belfast to Copenhagen to Austin.
Dana's eponymous first album released on Elektra Records featured luminary players from "The Section" Leland Sklar, and Russ Kunkel, along with Jim Horn, Michael Omartian, Jim Gordon, Joe Osborn, Milt Holland, and Al Perkins. Cooper moved to Houston Texas in 1978 to join forces with long time friend and co-writer Shake Russell. Their collaborations led to a half dozen albums as well as appearances on Austin City Limits, and Mountain Stage.
His critically acclaimed Miracle Mile on Compass Records was nominated for a Nashville Music Award as “Best Pop Album” and was chosen by Performing Songwriter Magazine as one of the top DIY recordings for the year. Cooper's co-producer and guitarist on the project is the legendary Josh Leo. Lyle Lovett and Maura O'Connell sang harmonies and George Marinelli of Bonnie Raitt's band joined Leo on electric guitar.
Harry Truman Built a Road was named one of the best records of the year by The Tennessean and was also chosen as one of the top twelve DIY recordings. Made of Mud released on King Easy Records won Cooper the “Best Male Songwriter Award” by Indie Acoustic Project.
Chris Keaton writing for Country Music News International Magazine says of Cooper's newest Travianna Records release Incendiary Kid: "This record is a beacon. A shining North Star. If you're looking for a brief respite from this crazy spinning circus of world and a unique lyrical and musical spin from the mind of a real songwriter, this record is for you."... See MoreSee Less

A solo acoustic performance at The Post at River East.
Tables must be purchased in advance and will not be sold at the door. All ages welcome. Free parking. “You can hurt and still feel lucky,” Ben Danaher sings on the title track of his deeply personal debut album, ‘Still Feel Lucky.’ Coming from any other songwriter, it might sound like a simple platitude, but in Danaher’s hands, it’s something far more profound, a moment of true enlightenment in the face of unimaginable tragedy. Years of pain are wrapped up in his delivery, but still he commits to the hope and the beauty inherent in the darkness. It’s a monumental task, but one the Huffman, Texas native handles with a tenacious grace on an album that, despite being born in the fires of struggle and loss, manages to forge its own path toward peace, growth, and even joy.
Drawing on the influence of legendary troubadours like Guy Clark, Rodney Crowell, and Townes Van Zandt, Danaher first made a name for himself as a songwriter in Texas before relocating to Nashville. Along the way, he shared bills with Ray Wylie Hubbard, Jack Ingram, Angaleena Presley, Rhett Miller, Travis Meadows, and Amanda Shires, in addition to co-writing songs for Ryan Beaver, Bonnie Bishop, Rob Baird, and Justin Halpin among others. For his own songs, Danaher collaborated with some of Nashville fastest-rising stars, including Maren Morris, on material that blended classic country tradition with modern rock and roll sensibilities.
Recorded live and raw with his touring band, ‘Still Feel Lucky’ showcases Danaher’s hard-won wisdom and cinematic storytelling, capturing slices of life with a candid honesty that cut straight to the heart of things. Danaher lost his brother to murder and his father to cancer in short succession, and while many of the songs draw from that well of pain and loss, the music is anything but self-pitying. These are songs of revelation and redemption, reflecting a maturity and an acceptance that can only come with time and perspective. Writing the album was a therapeutic process for Danaher, an opportunity to make sense of the inexplicable, but it was also a chance to respond to the universe with love and gratitude despite all he’s been through.
“You can go through hell and get completely hardened up, but there’s always going to be this human part of you that can still feel lucky and grateful for all the good that’s in your life,” he concludes. “No matter how difficult things get, in the end, there’s always hope.”... See MoreSee Less

Seating is very limited. Tables must be purchased in advance. No tables will be sold at the door. Despite the name, Matt the Electrician is no longer an electrician, focusing instead on a music career that has spanned the course of two decades, a dozen records, and thousands of shows. His music, however, remains rooted in his blue collar beginnings, with lyricism that embraces the day-to-day, the mundane, the beauty of the ordinary.
Before moving to Austin, TX and launching his career as a working-class folk musician, Matt Sever grew up on the West Coast. His parents played John Denver and Pete Seeger songs on the family record player, and Matt spent his earliest years surrounded by the things that would later fill his own music: acoustic guitars, timeless melodies, lyrics that celebrated the joys and heartaches of everyday life, and — above all else — a strong work ethic.
That work ethic served him well in the mid-1990s, when he moved to Austin in search of new horizons and better opportunities. Matt was already playing music by then, and in need of a steady day job, he began working as an electrician, spending his days wiring houses in the Texas heat. Once quitting time came, he'd grab his guitar and drive himself to an evening show, usually taking the stage in his work boots and sweaty clothes. "Hi; I'm Matt the Electrician," he'd tell the crowd, hoping his occupation would help explain his appearance. The name stuck, even after his growing fan base at home, as well as abroad, allowed him to hang up his pliers for good.... See MoreSee Less
