In Episode 279 today on The ETX ROCKS Show, we talk to Dallas, TX native Jerrod Medulla! Fresh off the news of his current single “Unbroken Horses” going number 1 in Texas, Jerrod not only plays the song but tells the story how the song, written by songwriting icon Dean Dillon, was pitched to him. We also discuss his unique style and why he decided to wear pinstriped suits to ever show! Tune in for a great conversation AND 2 original songs from Jerrod Medulla!!

(Courtesy of http://www.jerrodmedulla.com/)

A man hailing from Abilene was about to slide into town and seduce Texas music faithfuls with a sultry, sophisticated sound that flirts with genres like Adult Contemporary, Roots and Americana – all while wearing a pinstripe suit and a devilish grin.

It was heartbreak that led Jerrod Medulla to music, and the guitar that satisfied that dull, lonely ache only the end of a first love could cause. But once he found that riffs, slides and solos could heal just about anything, his true first love was born and there was no looking back.

Harper Starling is a Los Angeles based singer/songwriter and Billboard recording artist. Her music can best be described as dance-pop with a splash of 80s mixed in. Think Freddie Mercury, Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper getting together at Studio 54. Harper is that love child.

Harper was born to perform. She started dancing at the age of three to audiences of over 800. She continued her dance training for 15 years and still takes classes to this day.
