Diggs’ straight forward, crystal clear delivery is a throwback to when hip-hop was more authentic but is still relevant to today’s landscape. When you listen to a Traum Diggs song you get humor, pain, social commentary and real raw lyricism all wrapped up in one package. “I’m an autobiographical emcee,” says Diggs. “My raps are my life.”
A fresh, young 23-year-old singer-songwriter with big dreams and an ever-expanding fanbase, local artist Jamie Kent’s future as a performer looks quite promising. Drawing on influences from modern artists like Jack Johnson and Jamie Cullum, as well as paying tribute to classic greats Johnny Cash and Frank Sinatra, Kent’s perfectly mellifluous tunes are roll-the-windows-down, soak-up-some-sun kind of good.
Indofin, together since 2002, is a skapunkreggae powertrio from Austin TX. From these very modest beginnings and years spent at what seemed like futile efforts, Indofin has certainly come a long way, becoming one of the defining bands of the central Texas scene.
Imagine if you could fuse Neyo, Kevin Lyttle, & Sanchez into one – well the result should not be very far from Nando. Nando is a singer /songwriter who is equally adept at gliding over mellow one-drop reggae grooves, riding uptempo dancehall and soca riddims, or belting out pop and R&B tunes with a comfort that belies his Jamaican roots. While the majority of his catalogue either address male-female relationships or are meant to make you dance, Nando is not afraid to tackle social issues such as racism or single-parenthood, which he does with aplomb on tracks such as Overcome (Grey Version) and Get Better.

This is the part where Trishna spills her life story! Nah just playin, but really, it all started when she was 7, when she started singing and performing. The first song she technically ever sang was “Day-Oh (The Banana Boat Song)” by Harry Belafonte when she was 2, but no one wants to count their first step towards stardom in diapers and a plastic guitar. Since her childhood, singing songs and expressing herself on stage was Trishna’s way of “writing in a journal and telling stories and parts of myself in every song I sang”. She also started writing poems and songs at a very young age, weaving her thoughts into stories that could one day be put to melodies. She has branched out since then, performing in front of many different crowds. “From the beginning I have been inspired by a range of genres and challenged myself to learn innovative and new styles of singing.” Now Trishna sings all types of music, from hip-hop and pop to classical and modern Hindi music to rock, R&B and the list goes on. She has been trained in Western classical and Hindustani classical music. Trishna can also speak English, Spanish,Hindi, and Tulu, and she can sing in those languages, as well as German, Italian, and Irish.
