BAND: Dallas native Bryce Bangs showcases a blend of dirty blues and Texas soul with music that speaks to the soul and lyrics written straight from the heart. Bryce picked up the guitar at seven years old after a move from Chicago, and is completely self taught. Although, it wasn't until he went to college that he knew he wanted to pursue music wholeheartedly. In his interview with Crate Diggers, he says " I went to the Blue Light and Jonathan Tyler and the Northern Lights were playing. That was the first time I heard them, and the energy of their set was so awesome. While they were playing up there, it just sparked something in me. This is what I need to do." He recently spent the past six months working on his sophomore self titled album, and released it July 13th with a sold out show at the historic Granada Theater.
His musical discovery of artists like Bob Dylan, Jack White, Ryan Bingham, Lightnin' Hopkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Cramps, and Lincoln Durham led him to trade in his aggressive three chord punk rock stabs for a more nuanced sound—an aesthetic that transcends the dive bars and 2-penny pubs at which he performs throughout North Texas. And now after several years of gigging and busking, he’s just made another big change in his career—a stronger focus on songwriting. Look for a debut record in 2018 from Charlie J. Memphis, a name you will become more familiar with as time goes by. He says, “It’s time to show everyone who I am.”
