NATHAN “TEX” ARMSTRONG
Nathan “Tex” Armstrong is a vocalist, songwriter, guitar and bass guitar player. Born in Dallas, TX to a nomadic musical family, Tex has spent most of his days in the Southwest and Rocky Mountain states. In his early career, he worked as a sales and marketing executive in the Professional Audio and Musical Instrument sectors by day and extensively as a back up vocalist / instrumentalist for hire, at times playing over 100 dates a year. Looking for space to dive deeper into music, he moved to Port Townsend in the fall of 2020 after spending the summer exploring the Olympic Peninsula.
AB “You Don’t Get To Know What It Stands For” McSpadden sings and plays the guitar and mandolin. She grew up singing with her family around the piano and hearing legends of her ancestors doing the same. Her lyrical work is strongly influenced by her experience as a mental health counselor. AB has composed music for most of her life, often as a way to seek catharsis or to connect with mystery and wonder. Her songwriting synthesizes her Appalachian roots with influences from dream pop, Americana and shoegaze. She has a small and rude dog named Sunny.
