    BROUGHT TO YOU BY Race Cafe - The Espresso Bar

    Arriving on the Brisbane scene in 2005, Texas Tea
    have been impressing audiences and industry alike
    with their mix of indie-folk and country-soul. Now, with
    their third album on the horizon, this two-piece look
    to become the Australian darlings of alt-country.
    After releasing their debut album, Take A Sip, in
    2006, Texas Tea (AKA Kate Jacobson and Benjamin
    Dougherty) quickly became one of Brisbane's
    favourite bands and took out top spot in 4ZZZfm's
    Hot 100 two years in a row. Their second long-player,
    The Junkship Recordings, was released in late-2008
    and was met with widespread critical acclaim. The
    album was particularly applauded for its profound
    and forlorn lyrical content and the sublime vocal
    talents of both Kate and Ben.
    While their recordings are applauded and admired,
    where Texas Tea really come alive is onstage, where
    their striking blend of instrumentation and powerful
    performances will captivate audiences young and
    old. Their unique blend of indie, country and soul
    can transport the audience to a sad and sombre
    landscape before just as quickly whipping them into
    a barnyard style ho-down.
    Texas Tea have played all over Australia and have
    also toured quite frequently to Europe, where they
    have a very strong fan base, particularly in the
    northern regions of France. The band have also
    shared the stage with the likes of Ben Kweller
    (USA), Cold War Kids (USA), Iron and Wine (USA),
    Justin Townes Earle (USA), Charlie Parr (USA),
    The Handsome Family (USA), The Mountain Goats
    (USA), Mick Thomas (Weddings, Parties, Anything),
    The Darling Downs (Kim Salmon and Ron Peno),
    The Devastations and many other fine acts.
