Stars at Night Concert Series

Brian Pounds has spent the past six years as Austin’s best-kept musical secret. On Sept. 2, 2014, the singer-songwriter takes a bold step into the national spotlight with the release of his new EP, Strikes and Gutters.
The five-song album is a roots-rock tour de force, featuring well-written, catchy originals and a soulful cover of Shane Bartell’s fantastic “Sunday Dress.” Strikes and Gutters is the follow-up to Pounds’ debut full-length album, After You’re Gone. Reviews of that record, which came out in 2010, drew comparisons between Pounds and James Taylor; on his new release, the comparisons are even more apt, as Pounds’ deeply personal songwriting and warm delivery is reminiscent of the music found on Sweet Baby James.
Brian Pounds will perform September 26, 2014 during Montana Master Chefs.
