Pauline Reese (above)
At age 15, she joined a band composed of men in their 40s. Two years later, she fronted it as The Pauline Reese Band. About the same time, she met Willie Nelson and was welcomed into his inner circle of friends including legendary songwriters Sonny Throckmorton (George Strait’s “The Cowboy Rides Away”) and Merle Haggard sidekick Freddy Powers (“Natural High”).
While writing songs with them and studying their music and the artists they admired, she toured and worked odd jobs, from fixing guitars and selling hot dogs on a stick to making titanium kneecaps in a machine shop. Honing songwriting, guitar, vocals and showmanship while performing more than 170 concerts a year, Pauline steadily earned a fan base that allowed her to grow from opening act to headliner. She performed at two of Willie’s Farm Aid festivals that included Dave Matthews, Neil Young and John Cougar Mellencamp and six of Willie’s fabled Fourth of July Picnics.
Pauline’s albums won critical acclaim since her self-titled debut in 1999. Willie joined her for a duet on “Pick Up the Pieces” on her 2004 CD “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.” The Texas Music Awards bestowed album of the year honors on her 2007 CD “Too Texas,” a collection of her classics and others’. Her sixth CD, “Just Getting Started,” reveals Pauline’s growth as an artist in a powerful collection of folk, pop rock and alternative and contemporary country that reflects a life being lived to its fullest – from a leaving a rocky marriage and finding new love and a new role as a wife and mother with two young daughters to all the highs and lows in between. www.paulinereese.com
John Arthur Martinez
John Arthur Martinez Country-Americana-Tex-Mex Award winning artist, john Arthur martinez, is one of the Lone Star State’s favorite singer-songwriters and when the stage lights shine, he and his band bring it!
From the Country Rendezvous in France with Mark Chesnutt & The Greencards, to the Grand Ole Opry with Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban & Charlie Pride, to his birthplace of Austin, Texas with Elton John, Reuben Ramos and Asleep at the Wheel, he’s proven his music grades on stages all over the world.
His ﬂowing melodies carry stories told by a true Texas songwriter. His songs have been covered by the likes of Alan Jackson, Flaco Jimenez, Raul Malo and many independent artists. But when he covers a song like “When You Say Nothing At All,” which charted on Billboard, he gives it his own twist. His bilingual version of “Amarillo by Morning” is seen in dance videos from Dallas to South Korea. www.johnarthurmartinez.net
