Love & Chaos at Third Coast Theater: BYOB! Doors at 7, Showtime 8pm. Limited seating for social distancing. Nestled somewhere between the beauty of love and the turmoil of chaos comes the unique sound from Texas artists and long-time co-collaborators, AJ Vallejo & Kendall Beard. Both artists on their own, have quite an impressive resume of experience in the music world. AJ fronting his heavy-touring Sony recording act Austin rock band, Vallejo for over a decade touring with the likes of everyone from The Black Crowes, Matchbox 20, Stone Temple Pilots & Blues Traveler, and Kendall enjoying national success as a finalist on Season 8 of Fox's American Idol as well as her own solo career. AJ , being voted 3-time Producer of the Year at the Austin Music Awards, teamed up with Kendall after her Idol stint recording her 2 full-length albums. The studio relationship during that period proved to be so fruitful that the powerful songwriting duo came together as a duo project to create something new with an undeniable chemistry that carries over into each and every song. On their debut EP Love & Chaos, AJ & Kendall bring different styles to the table and somehow manage to consistently find middle ground as they create fresh & exciting music together. Their first single/video Ready For War mixes a funky backbeat groove w/ big harmonies, while their second single Wildflower (co-written w/ TX friend, Willy Braun of Reckless Kelly) swings Americana & roots-rock together effortlessly without sounding contrived. Chase those songs down with the destructo-comical Drive Me To Drink and you have one mean mixed buzz of guilty musical pleasures that clearly show the duo's vast list of collective influences. Their upcoming full-length debut album Bless Your Idiot Heart (due Fall 2019) chocked full of radio-ready gems like the title track & Back To Good show strong promise already enjoying heavy radio play in their Texas home state. AustinLive calls the band "Texas' musical Bonnie & Clyde, burning up stages one show at a time with their fiery, fun rollercoaster ride of songs about love, pain, sacrcasm & hope...this band has to be seen live to #embracethechaos..."
