Born and raised in the central Texas small town of Markham, singer/songwriter and guitarist Darryl Lee Rush spins whimsical tales of rural and urban Texas over gutsy and dusty backbeats. When he was old enough to play the honky tonks, Rush moved to Austin and joined the Big Johnsons. A chance to join the folk-rock band Fast Train persuaded Rush to move to Dallas. After Fast Train broke up, Rush decided to stay in Dallas and form a new band under his own name. With bass player Mike McShane, harmonica player Don Gallia, and drummer Andy Mayer, Rush built a solid Dallas fan base by playing his rocking brand of country in any bar that would take him and to any audience that would listen. Numerous shows later, Rush and his band were signed to Shiner Records. The label released their debut, Llano Avenue, in August of 2005.

Songs are life, and life is a song. This is what Michael O’Neal might say if you were to ask him about his music. Michael is a 20 year independent artist and veteran of running up and down the roads of Texas and Oklahoma. To the tune of 6 studio records and 2 live records, all while maintaining his day job the entire time. You could say he’s a workingman’s songwriter who only writes what he knows. Picking up a guitar for the first time when he was 25 years old, he will tell you he has a passion for the lyrics and the detail. Michael’s songs are heartfelt and true with the stories to match, he’s been quoted as saying “to me, the story is more important than the rhyme”. Michael’s songs are documents of life’s events, from quitting school in the 3rd grade (only to be forced to return) to watching his Mom iron his shirt before his grandmother’s funeral. Very heavily influenced by the writing styles of Guy Clark and John Prine, Michael has steadily progressed at selling records and building an audience in his region. He has shared the stage with some of the heaviest hitters in his genre, Fred Eaglesmith, Chris Knight, Steve Earle, and Ray Wiley Hubbard to name a few. His tunes have won the respect of peers and music lovers worldwide. Songs and stories of laughter, tears, disappointment and hope…just like the life we live.
