Private Holiday Party

From the smoke filled bar rooms to the big festival stages, Brett Hendrix puts on an energetic show every time he hits the stage. Hailing from Lorena, Texas, just south of Waco, this young musician brings a powerful performance every night he is on stage. Recently Brett has moved to Northern Colorado and now is building a fan base out of Fort Collins and the rest of the Rocky Mountains.
Sheyna Gee, much like many aspiring artists, began their musical journey at a young age. However, Sheyna had a short stint playing softball before moving on to music. Gee said, “My mom told my siblings and me we had to have a hobby. My first choice was softball, but I hit the ball and ran to get the ball. Sports were not it for me. My brother was seven years older than me, and he played the drums and piano. He had a guitar lying around, and my mom found someone who would give me lessons at five years old. I took guitar lessons for a few years. At about seven, I started writing songs. Of course, they were not good. They were just these dumb songs kids make up.”
Sheyna Gee has a more traditional country sound, but it didn’t start that way. Also, when you see Sheyna, you might think she is more of a rocker. You would’ve been right. The singer-songwriter said, “I didn’t think I was a singer until I was older. When I was about ten years old, we started a band called “Spoiled.” In high school, I played in a pop-rock band. However, that didn’t work out because clearly, the songs I was writing were country songs. I love rock, but I cannot seem to write upbeat music, and I still can’t! I write the saddest songs in the world. At twenty, I started my first country band, and I have played country music ever since.”
When contemporary influences expand country music’s parameters, you’ll hear “Country Music ain’t like it used to be” as a common refrain. But 24-year-old ZACH TOP is reviving the spirit of 90’s traditionalists like George Strait, Keith Whitley, and Randy Travis with classic vibes that evoke the dance halls of Texas, the roar of the rodeo, and jukebox ballads with a cold beer in hand.
There’s nothing more current than old school country to Zach, who grew up on a ranch in Washington State. He recalls rockin’ Marty Robbins’ Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs while riding out to feed livestock each day and forming a bluegrass band with his siblings at the age of seven. In his teens, he joined Seattle-based band North Country and later became a member of Modern Tradition (winners of the 2017 SPBGMA International Band Competition). When his honky-tonk dreams took him to Nashville, his single “Like It Ain’t No Thing” (RBR Entertainment) hit #1 on the Bluegrass Today chart. As it turns out, his skills as a traditional instrumentalist and storyteller did more than establish credibility with aficionados – it earned him a crucial publishing deal with Bob Doyle’s Major Bob Music and created an instant bond with the very guys who wrote the hits of his heroes.
