Houston Music

And Lo, From The Heavens Emerged Grievous Angels

Each Wednesday, Rocks Off arbitrarily appoints one lucky local performer or group "Artist of the Week," bestowing upon them all the fame and grandeur such a lofty title implies. Know a band or artist that isn't awful? Email their particulars to [email protected].

These angels who are grievous are Libby Koch, Debbie Forrest and Lainey Balagia.

All three are highly talented, highly talented musicians. As far as we can tell, they are the greatest country music all-female trio that Houston has ever produced, and they've only even recorded a handful of songs together.

They make music that will make you go, "Well that's pretty excellent now, iddn't it?". Alternatively, you might also say, "I'm glad I listened to that" or "People are going to reflexively compare them to the Dixie Chicks, and that's going to piss me off greatly because, beyond aesthetics, they're not very much like them at all."

As such, we interviewed them. There was talk of MMA in heaven, Jason Aldean's suspect Grammy nomination and more. Go forth and conquer.
