Artists
Matt Williams

Matt Williams is an independent artist from Stillwater, OK. Matt was born and raised in Ponca City, OK, then moved to Stillwater in 2018 to pursue music in a town that was known for it. After playing acoustic gigs in Oklahoma and surrounding states for around 3 years, he formed a band in early 2021 and hit the road. He released his first single "The Devil" on Halloween 2020, followed by two more singles (Mountain & $42), before releasing his debut full-length project in July of 2021, titled "Wasteland". Matt and the band strive to put on an entertaining live show, pulling influence from red-dirt, rock, and metal. Putting an emphasis on genuine songwriting, Matt hopes his listeners connect with the lyrics on the same level that he does.

After releasing 5 new songs throughout 2022, there are no plans to slow down in 2023. With a focus on more shows and more new music this year, Matt and the guys are hitting the ground running and looking to make a name for themselves in the ever-evolving Texas/Red-Dirt scene. 

 

"I haven't been doing this radio thing forever, but I've been around the block a time or two. You don't sleep on talent, especially when guys like Matt Williams come across your radio dial." - Bryson Culwell, Red River Radio Show

"With the boom of straight up rock ‘n’ roll in the ever-evolving Texas/Oklahoma scene, you start to see who can pull it off and who can’t. Matt Williams can." - Sam Burgh, Raised Rowdy

"Williams refers to himself as a Red Dirt artist, but “Always Be Around” screams “late-90s Southern emo” to me, with its Hoobastank-worthy harmonies and tasty hooks." - Rachel Cholst, Adobe & Teardrops

Adara Kay
Born & raised in Southern Oklahoma, Adara Kay is a little bit of grit and a little bit of grace. Onstage with her band, you could define them as Y’allternative. Together, they have perfected a high energy performance that watchers will remember down the road. They’ve been offered many great opportunities with some big names such as, Cam Allen, Austin Meade, Them Dirty Roses, Matt Williams & more. Plus, they’ve played some huge  festivals in Oklahoma this year, including, Calf Fry, Oklahoma Smokeshow & Rock the Route. So get ready to get rowdy with Adara Kay!
