The Listening Room Cafe

Our friend, Chad Trout, is fighting his battle with cancer and we want to take some of the financial worry away. Julie Roberts: With her deep, blues-soaked voice that poignantly captures the pain of the wronged and forgotten, Julie Roberts has quickly become a favorite of the fans and music critics alike. Danielle Peck: There is an undeniable division in Danielle Peck's voice. A bluesy pull, a reluctant smokiness that, when it breaks, yields soaring, ringing, soul-stirring power and clarity. That tantalizing slow-pour tension is a fitting reflection of the artist herself. Is she an exuberant young country singer or an experienced and purposed entertainer? Is she the self-described "plain Jane girl next door" or a statuesque brunette bombshell? Is she a former waitress fighting for her big break or a prolific songwriter who contributed eight of 11 songs to her upcoming album? Danielle Peck is all that and much more. Shelly Fairchild: A staple in the Nashville music community, Fairchild hit the scene to much acclaim with her debut album Ride. The project introduced the artist’s soulful, gospel-tinged brand of alt-country and spawned a hit with “You Don’t Lie Here Anymore.” She toured with some of the biggest names including Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban and Tim McGraw, and began to dig her roots in the industry. She again found success in her second release, Ruby’s Money– but it’s Buffalo that marks a milestone in her life and career. Desert Okies: Raised on the plains of Oklahoma, Chad and Travis Trout were born into music.By the time Chad was 8 he began singing in his father's ensemble "The Desert Okie Band", opening for Tammy Wynette, Bob Wills Band and countless others. The band created quite a following in Oklahoma performing in places like the Tulsa State Fair, Route 66 theater, V.F.W. Clubs, Cain's Ballroom, The Oklahoma Opry,  Shannon Mock: "It's been a minute...or maybe 2 years...since I have stood behind a microphone. I can't think of a better reason to come out of forced retirement! LOL". - Shannon Mock
