With honest and personal lyrics, William Clark Green's music lures-in and relates his audience to real-life inspiration. Growing up in small-town Flint, Texas, Will started writing at thirteen. After some practice and encouragement, Will opened for The Dragliners in College Station. However, being only fourteen at the time, he forgot almost all the lyrics to his diligently-rehearsed show. But, with free guitar lessons at his hometown church and local shows, Will became more confident and prepared for larger venues. As a freshman at Texas Tech, Green got the chance to play the Monday-night spot at Recovery Room, eventually working his way up to the headlining show on Thursday nights. Friend and fellow songwriter Josh Abbott helped Green get his foot in the door at Blue Light in Lubbock, Texas. After playing many acoustic shows, Green started a band and recorded his first CD, "Dangerous Man," that released September 18, 2008. Will continues to play shows frequently across Texas with his band
Better Than Nothin'
After years of a life and career centered around drums, Jake Stringer decided it was time to try seeing and hearing things from a different perspective. In 2015, he decided to pick up a pen, paper, and a guitar, and start writing some songs of his own. After a few songs came along, he hooked up with guitarist and long-time friend Zach Mourning to write and record some ideas. Once the two had a few writing sessions between them, and a lot of questions as to whether or not they should give it a go, they decided to call on Cody Pilkinton to start working up some songs. With the addition of long-time friends Adam Clarke on bass and Austin Baker on drums, Better Than Nothin' has pretty much become exactly what the name says... Better Than Nothin'.
