The fifth single, Texas Heart, from Austin band, Titty Bingo

Titty Bingo is an Austin based band with roots in blues,

country rock, and Americana. Members are Fred Fletcher,

Derek O’Brien, Steve Bailey, Larry Fulcher, Bobbie Nelson,

Joe and Dahr Jamail, along with Willie Nelson (when he

wants to pick with us).

For the past two years, the band focused on recording new music at Arlyn Studios in Austin, Texas. There are several records ready to be released.

Stephen Foster & Howler

"Baby Blue"

"Baby Blue" comes on the heels of "Little Things" and "When You Love Somebody" SF&Howler's first new release in 2 years. Produced in Muscle Shoals during the C19 crisis, this song was written in '94 in Clermont, FL. I tried several times to get a track done that would do justice to the strong lyrics but couldn't get one to work, plus, I just didn't have the bridge lyrics up to par with the rest of the song.

About a month ago I came up with the simple bridge lyrics and immediately sat down to record this track. Due to being sequestered,

I play all parts on the song, just a simple 4-piece

arrangement, bass line inspired by Carol Kaye.

Debra Thomas

"I Think It' Time" GENRE: Smooth Pop

Debra is a long time songwriter, published by Big Fish Music in Los Angeles, CA.

This track was sung by a session vocalist, produced as a publishing track, updated a bit and now released as a single.

Great song, excellent singer.

Whosoever South "Summertime"

GENRE: SOUTHERN

The Jeff Carlson Band had free time on their hands when Covid hit, so they turned an EP into a full album "Yesterday's Gone" during the 2020 lockdown. A Las Vegas touring act, they're self-contained and went at the recordings as a band.

Whosoever South is a musical trio comprised of husband & wife team, Rowdy & Sarah Eunice, & friend Mike Mitchell, along with a few family & friends as instrumental musical contributors. The three are from the Southeastern U.S. and have been making music together since the early 2000’s. As independent artists, they are not limited to just one specific genre & often like to mix it up. Let’s say Hip-Hop, Bluegrass, Gospel, Soul & some Country..and sometimes maybe in just one song. They like many different kinds of music, so why not? They often share their faith & love of family in their songs with a relevant, true to life message.

Summertime Is a laid back & fun song. It captures some of the good times of summer through the vibes of this one. Throughout life there are different seasons. But, while we

believe in working hard, it’s also important to remember to relax & enjoy yourself

along the way. We are only here for a little while. So have fun. This song is just a

little taste of summer, for any season.
