Better Than Ezra

The best songs, records, and bands transport you back to the first moment you heard them each and every time they play. Whether you caught a house party gig after Better Than Ezra formed in 1988 at Louisiana State University, heard “Good” on the radio once it hit #1 in 1995, became a fan following Taylor Swift’s famous cover of “Breathless” in 2010, or saw them headlining sheds in 2018, you most likely never forgot that initial introduction to the New Orleans quartet founded by Kevin Griffin [lead vocals, guitar, piano] and Tom Drummond [bass, backing vocals]. Those hummable melodies, unshakable guitar riffs, and confessional lyrics quietly cemented the group as an enduring force in rock music. How many acts can boast being the inspiration of a classic Saturday Night Live skit? Very few. Named one of the top “100 Greatest Alternative Artists of All Time” by Billboard, Better Than Ezra released their last single “Grateful” in 2018 and are currently in the studio working on new music.

Bones Owens

Drawing on a variety of genres and his diverse work as a session and touring guitarist for artists like Bon Jovi, Mikky Ekko, and Yelawolf, Bones Owens makes eclectic alternative roots rock as a solo artist. After nine years as a working musician and songwriter in Music City, his first EP, Hurt No One, arrived in 2014. He issued a sophomore EP, Make Me No King, in 2017, followed by an eponymous full-length effort in 2021. A native of rural Missouri, Caleb Owens was raised on country and gospel music, and later learned bluegrass, folk, and rock after taking up the guitar at the age of ten. He was writing songs by age 13 and played in bands throughout high school and college. One of those bands led to a publishing deal with EMI, and he relocated to Nashville, Tennessee in 2005.
