From Libby Koch
Seventh generation Texan Libby Koch (pronounced "coke") is an Americana singer/songwriter who is based in Houston. She is a Texas Music Awards nominee for 2011 Female Vocalist of the Year and has been touring extensively in support of her latest record, The Shadow of This Town. Libby's music is a classic Americana blend of country, folk, and rock, with influences from great artists such as Emmylou Harris, Lucinda Williams, Patty Griffin, Gillian Welch, and Dolly Parton. Her goal is to make real, honest music that resonates with people, and as Matthew Warnock of Guitar International Magazine recently said, "it is artists like Koch that are restoring faith in country music to its fans." Libby's latest album, The Shadow of This Town, was released by Nashtex Records in December 2010 and is receiving rave reviews for its classic country sound. Previous releases by Libby include 2009's Redemption and 2008's The Barn Burner EP. For more info, please check out www.libbykoch.com!
