AMF ARTIST OF THE MONTH

SHY BEAST

In 2017, Shy Beast introduced itself and offered its complex and appealing music. In the latest single, “My Stride,” it demonstrates its power. Shy Beast hails from Austin but plays to the entire world.

We are working closely with Shy Beast through our Artist Development Program and are excited to feature them as the November Artist of the Month. Look out for their new EP coming November 24, and celebrate with the band that night at Spiderhouse Ballroom.

AMF ARTIST OF THE MONTH

WESTERN YOUTH

Austin-based roots-rockers Western Youth released their debut self-titled album last month to critical accolades. The release marks the sextet’s first recording in five years, and comes after the addition of new band members and profound life changes.  These transitions provide the backdrop for a new collection of songs that stagger artfully between Americana, folk and honest American rock and roll. Smart, moody lyrics and sublime three/four-part harmonies meld with searing guitar riffs and intricate arrangements showcasing a defiant yet evolving band on the rise. We talked to the guys about their experiences recording the new record, and what’s next for Western Youth.
