Pulling together bar band swagger, honky-tonk stomp, and pop-rock smarts and vigor, Big State barnstormed the alternative country-rock scene in Austin in the beginning of 2016. The band immediately caught on at multiple venues as they quickly built a fanbase with their unique blend of cowpunk Americana and their sweaty, good-time, high-octane shows.

With a tip of the cap to their influencers such as Uncle Tupelo, Old 97's, and Slobberbone, Big State's songs are irreverent and entertaining, blending the biographical and pure fiction, and drawing from that story-telling gene that's inherently built into a Texan. The haywire result that is growing up and being a musician in Austin is evident, as the music is equal parts Willie and The Clash, that always present intersection of Country and Punk/Rock that exists in the Live Music Capital of the World. Heck Yeah, Dang Right!
